While walking down India Street in the heart of Little Italy in San Diego, we came across the Mee Shim gallery. This was a great space. Up front was the gallery and in the far right corner a studio and storage space. What amazed me was the artist is the owner of the gallery (or at least rented the space). I thought that was pretty sweet! We checked out the work and were surprised to see Mee Shim working on a commission piece while people wandered through the studio. Jen and I said hello but didn't want to distract her. I wanted to post about her because I thought her work was awesome. I also think that it is great to see an artist support themselves in this way. Here are a few images and a link to her site. Video here.

Fresh from the west coast the blog is back, that is until thurs when I go camping for a few days. Maybe I should learn how to create posts that auto post at specific times. Anyways, the Thank You! in the title is for a great family in San Francisco that took Jen, Rachael, Jake and I in for a few days while we were out that way. THANK YOU! We had a great time!
Now down to business. Flywheel Press is the shit. Period. Amber ( yes, that is who we stayed with) was so kind to let us into her studio and check it out. Her Heidelberg skills were very impressive. The only time I ever saw one in use was in the movie 7 Pounds, which I annoyingly brought up. Really, don't bring it up. On a serious note, Flywheel Press has everything. Wedding invites, greetings, stationary, announcements and a handful of other goodies. Get creative, there is even custom printing! Check the shop out.
Here are a few of my favorites, in no particular order.
