The Book of Tree Planting Suicides (the trailer)

After much anticipation and waiting, finally The Book of Tree Planting Suicides is close to publication! This has been my little baby project for almost two years. It got a real kick start when along with a grant, I got a fancy little deadline from the DTES Small Arts Grant in Vancouver. Thank you. It is inspired by The Book of Bunny Suicides by Andy Riley. They were hand printed in San Francisco by me and The Most Magical Annie. One million thank yous to her.

The book is comprised of 16 hand drawn screen printed drawings depicting a variety of creative ways to end the suffering when feeling particularly hard-done-by on the block tree planting. I will have 35 copies available for sale before the tree planting season this year (just in case you need inspiration out there, please view with caution), and another 15 copies for the zine fair in Montreal this November. If you are interested in purchasing a copy (very limited supply as you can see) let me know and I'll put you on a list. Books are $25 each. Let me tell you, they are A LOT of work. Holy. Book making is hard.

The Book. (6.25 x 5'')

Baby books in the making. So many to go. 

Along with the cover (how will that girl do it?), here is a teaser of what is inside. We've all thought of this one. But I'm pretty sure there's some in there you haven't thought of. I was totally bush crazy when I came up with them so...

PS: This is what I've been up to and in great part why my blog is pretty inactive this days.
