Artist Series no. 5 is here!

Haley’s design was inspired by the late Harold Balazs – one of the Inland Northwest’s most renowned artists and a consummate maker of stuff. (Harold’s artist statement? “Making stuff is better than not making stuff.”) “Harold’s spunky, funky works always [...]

It’s now or never: Hhsf closes Monday!

Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’… This is how we imagine things went down: You opened up that email back in May – you know, the one inviting you to participate in the second annual Hhsf – and said to yourself, “Self, I could sure use some extra scratch,” and then, well…nuthin’.

Artist Series No. 4 Has Landed

New and in the Shop: Artist Series no. 4! The first step, they say, is acceptance – admitting you have a problem. And Lorri Johnston definitely has a problem. “I’m almost ashamed to admit it,” she says, “but I’m a font addict.” It got so bad she was bringing in unauthorized fonts from her home computer to work.

[...]
