a couple of years ago i was dating David. his birthday came around. i was on the J to his apartment, thinking about a good gift. all of a sudden an image of a lit candle shoved up my vagina came to me. i decided to go ahead and create this image then i decided to turn it into a greeting card. i made about 20 different explicit greeting cards over that summer. i decided to call the greeting cards Nasty By Design. i went around to different shops pitching them. nobody bit. the last place i went to was Spoonbill and Sugartown Booksellers on bedford ave. they decided to take two of the less risque ones on consignment. they sold out. i now have 5 cards for sale at the store. here is an image of the best selling one, blank on the inside. David,thank you for the inspiration.
Spoonbill sells great art books, you should go.
Oh, another place you should go to is to the NY Studio Gallery on january 14th. some of my dearest friends Constance and Eric and Marne Lucas
are a part of the exhibition Hotter Than July. i’ll be at the opening, will you? btw, constance and eric have started blogging pretty hardcore — pun the fuck intended. it is fun, refreshing, sexy. god i just adore these guys to pieces. check it out.
