Mee Kyung Shim

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.

happy birthday

Thank you!

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.

 Now go see more!
