After True/False, we first headed to Kansas City to decompress for a few days at Dustin’s parents house, and then made our way to Lawrence, Kansas.  I set up shop outside Wonder Fair, an awesome gallery/shop/studio/creative place.  This place stocks all manner of beautiful little handmade treats, like posters, clothing, zines, and weird things you didn’t know you needed (see last photo of this blog post).  Meredith and Paul are the lovely proprietors, and they invited friends, neighbors, and customers out on a cold and rainy night to take part in some printing love.

Afterwards, we got into some March Mustard Madness at the local brewery, which involved tasting approximately 17 different kinds of mustards.  There were some favorites we all agreed upon, but no clear winner.

The next day, I took the truck over to the University of Kansas and parked outside the Spencer Museum.  There was a huge turnout, and we thought it could be cool to tie into a current exhibit by Chen Shaoxiong called “Prepared: Strategies for Activitsts” so we printed some pseudo protest posters – “Art here! Art now!” And then everyone looted the museum.  Just kidding.

That night, I went back to Wonder Fair for a Run on Sentence show, which was a lot of fun.  The boys had stopped by to visit some of Dustin’s family that day, and had raided his great uncle’s collection of trucker caps.  I was gifted this beauty, which I paired with a ribbon from The Small Object, to powerful effect:
