If you’re in the fine city of Norwich in the UK, hop on over to the “We Like Good Weather” fair organised by the Fine City Friends. Consisting of Gemma Correll, her boyfriend Anthony Zinonos and Helen Entwisle — all very talented illustrators/photographers and crafters — the trio will be selling their prints, t-shirts toys and other offerings at the Playhouse Bar on Saturday, 16 February 2008. They called the fair such to ward off the spate of bad weather luck that befell their two earlier fairs, and looks mightily fun if you’re around the area.
Junkyard Sam’s Flowerbot and Turtlecave print
Junkyard Sam is one of the artists who will be showing at the Eclectix Gallery in El Cerrito, California from 1st February to 3rd March. In time for Valentine, the show is entitled Heart Attack: The Yin and Yangs of Art and touches on all aspects of love; the good, the bad and the strange.

I am a big fan of yours, and when I went over to your shop and tried to buy some things that might have some of your witty, wonderful images, there was only a few to be found—in the form of zines at that. And at your blog, I was teased by your colourful people and your one-liners that usually send me rolling on the floor with laughter.

For now, I can only be appeased by a few of your full-color limited edition edition zines that’s for sale. And because I’m not a fan of ripping zines up, oh please, please, make some prints and put them up for sale so that I can hang some on my funny-depraved walls.
