One of the artists featured in the Humor in Craft book and exhibit, Loring Taoka, will be at the Society of Contemporary Craft this weekend!  If you're in the Pittsburgh area, it's not too late to register for his workshop, The Funnies, at www.contemporarycraft.org.  We will also have a reception in his honor on Saturday (the 20th) at 5pm.  Hope to see you there!

The Humor book now has its own website listing author engagements (book signings, public appearances etc.) as well as scheduled exhibitions. You can also purchase copies of the book directly from the author and request a signature and dedication while you are at it. :-)
