Kathryn from blackbird letterpress was so very kind and sent me some of her letterpress samplers after exchanging few tweets about UPPERCASE magazine issue 8 and how we both received my LOVE print. She told me to “slip it in the mag like it came that way ;)”! And here they are. I received not only one, but two! yipeeeeee!

Love all her hand-curved arts. It really shows the warmth. “true LOVE” coaster is just perfect! (Our work was actually featured together at the UPPERCASE gallery, yay!)

and her little note card was great, too, a piece of art for sure.

Hi there! I hope you all had a great weekend… did you watch Super Bowl? Or Puppy Bowl? :)

Heartfish Blog has a new look now to go with the Heartfish Press website as you realized. Simpler and cleaner, has bigger images and I’ll be organizing contents more so it’ll be easier to find what you are looking for!

Anyways. My copy of the UPPERCASE issue 8 has arrived and guess what…? I received my own sampler (see everyone’s amazing pieces here)! What are the chances, right? I’m lucky that way, I guess… :) Well, someone else should enjoy this… so I have decided to give that one away here on my blog!

Good luck! xo Hijiri
