After months of work, IPRC volunteer and membership coordinator (and excellent artist) Lori D. finally unveiled her new murals for the IPRC’s perfect binding room today.
“They’re the biggest paintings I’ve ever made,” says Lori, who hauled the two works to the center wrapped in three layers of garbage bags to keep off the rain.

Better Biz

I made a business card on the IPRC letterpress using these found playing cards and printing my contact info on them.  These are a huge success when I hand them out.  People always like them.  Also I developed and maintain a website through knowledge gained in an IPRC “create a FREE website” workshop.

Thanks to some artfully repurposed wooden boards, a creative little nook and the beloved …

Behold! The horror!
So fuzzy! So friendly!

Zine Review: Peterson's Incident Report Book
