Flying to Western #China for a #SilkRoad #Tour! I'll be visiting #Lanzhou, #Xiahe, #Tongren, #Xining, #Zhangye, #Jiayuguan, #Dunhuang, #Turpan, and #Ürümqi. Since this is an actual #trip and not #art-related I probably won't be using a VPN like I did 5 years ago during my Beijing and Shanghai #adventure (which is how I wrote "Midwesterner in the #MiddleKingdom": http://artistsonthelam.blogspot.com/2012/05/midwesterner-in-middle-kingdom-outsider.html) so I'll likely be MIA 'til the end of the month; see you then! And until then, check out my latest blog post (which I've added updates to), "[Your Guide to Overcoming] Expo FOMO"! http://artistsonthelam.blogspot.com/2017/09/your-guide-to-overcoming-expo-fomo.html

Last night at the #NastyWomen #Chicago #ArtShow in Stan Mansion and sold my piece in it! Thank you to fellow #artist Allen Vandever for buying my "Safety Lights Are for Dudes" drawing; 100% of the sale goes to #PlannedParenthood. And thank you to all the friends who came! http://instagram.com/p/BYzoRXwHCiK #art

I've begun sharing the dreams and hopes kids drew and wrote during my Visiting #Artist Workshops at the #Chicago #Children's #Museum in January 2014! (There are over 80 postcards from these kids, so I'll be interspersing them with some regular* ones, even though I've been going roughly chronologically, based on when I left the cards, or numerically, based on the mapping codes I'd written on them.) Get your daily dose of joy these next few months and follow along at http://www.instagram.com/dreamsofacity!

The open call for #artists (and more details) will go out next week, with all submissions to be received by October 1. The opening reception's Friday, November 17, and the exhibition will run through the end of December. Thank you, Patrick Hull of Vertical #Gallery! #art #Chicago #contemporaryart #streetart #graffiti #popart #design #graphicdesign #drawing #illustration #painting #mixedmedia
