San Diego friends! On June 27 (6pm), Susie Ghahremani will be speaking at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. Learn all about her work and the artwork process behind her first picture book “What Will Hatch?” The talk will be followed by a Q&A and book signing. RSVP on the Facebook event page.
Don’t miss Susie’s recent collaboration with Irene Stone for Supah Mashup Art Party. You can see all of their pieces at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland through July 14.
On Saturday, June 8, Fat Rabbit Farm will be signing copies of their books at the Supah Pop-Up event taking place at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland. “Big T’s Big Adventure” is their second release and stars one of my favorite FRF characters Yetabun. Copies of this title will be available during the event.
Fat Rabbit Farm’s first book “Babee and the Valley of the Hungry Ninjas” is now completely sold out, and Leanna Lin’s Wonderland only has a handful of copies left! (I can’t guarantee that Wonderland will have any copies available at the event, so act fast if you want one.) The only other place you can find this book is at Amiko Boutique in San Francisco.
Hope to see you at Supah Pop-Up on June 8 (6-10pm)! If you already own a copy of either book, stop by Supah Pop-Up to get your book signed!
Here’s Susie Ghahremani signing a copy of ‘What Will Hatch?’ for an adorable fan. Susie’s first Los Angeles book signing took place during the opening reception of Supah Mashup Art Party at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland. I think Leanna Lin’s may still have some signed copies of the book left. You can also order directly from Susie, or ask your independent bookseller to carry copies of the book.
For Supah Mashup Art Party, Susie worked on two separate collaborations. This piece titled “Contrails” was created by Susie and Jared Andrew Schorr and is still available.
Her collaborative works with Irene Stone are also available at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland through July 14, 2013. Woolly Mammoth and Tiny Bog Turtle #2 are already spoken for, and Tiny Bog Turtle #2 is on hold. These would make great gifts for cross stitch fans! All of the pieces from the Supah Mashup exhibition can be seen here.
P.S. LA friends, Susie’s band – Bulletins – are playing their first LA show at Silverlake Lounge this Thursday, May 16. Hope to see you there!
On May 11 (6-10pm), Leanna Lin’s Wonderland will be hosting three awesome events: Supah Mashup Art Party curated by yours truly; The Corner Museum of Dubious Beasts featuring Leslie Levings and Shing Yin Khor; and a ‘What Will Hatch?’ book signing with Susie Ghahremani.
Purchase a copy of ‘What Will Hatch?’ at Leanna Lin’s and you’ll receive a free poster. Susie will also bring bookmarks to give away! If you’ve already purchased ‘What Will Hatch?’ bring your copy and she’ll be happy to doodle in it or personalize it for you. (The above photo is just one example of her amazing doodles.) Signing begins at 6pm.
Don’t forget. . . Supah Mashup Art Party will feature collaborative pieces by Susie Ghahremani and Irene Stone. Later this week, I’ll be previewing Susie’s collaboration with Jared Andrew Schorr. Stay tuned!
My Milk Toof recently celebrated its fourth anniversary, and Inhae Lee has some wonderful news for fans. The new My Milk Toof Book 2 will be released May 2013.
This time around I have decided to independently publish the book, which has been a great experience. Although there is much more work to manage on my end, I have enjoyed the process and creative control that accompanies self-publishing- And hopefully that will equal a really great book you will all love even more. The new book will only be available for sale on the My Milk Toof shop site. More info to come!
. . . I am proud to announce my first art show, THE ART OF MY MILK TOOF, here in San Francisco, California. The show will take place from April 6 – May 1 at the Rare Device Gallery, and will feature high-quality framed prints from some of my favorite ickle and Lardee Adventures (including some from the new book)! I will be at the opening reception on Saturday with a handful of advanced copies of the new Book 2 for purchase- one month before they release on the shop site. So save the date, and I will have more information to come in the weeks ahead.

I’m thrilled that my favorite artists are coming out with picture books! Little Paper Daydream by Andrea Kang and Nathan Jurevicius of Harley & Boss is now available via the publisher Paper Farms and on Amazon.
Little Paper Daydream is a magical story of a young boy’s imaginative journey. Everyone is invited on this fantastical, friend-filled adventure through whimsical landscapes.
This book was designed using a combination of cut paper and digital processes to create the signature “Harley & Boss” look. Using a variety of premium papers, Andrea Kang and Nathan Jurevicius scan each pattern and texture into their computer to give the illustrations a hand crafted aesthetic. The final product reflects a collaborative juxtaposition between ink work and graphic paper forms.
