saw some squash blossoms at the produce market and decided to stuff it with shiitake mushrooms, ricotta cheese, and parsley.

aim high

aim high by david shrigley
Print by David Shrigley

bought this print by david shrigley from his ybca exhibit called "brain activity".  it's kinda moronic in its simplicity and crudity (as most of his works are). i just like it because it says if you aim too high you're likely to miss the point entirely.

anyhoo.  the print is called "aim high" and according to the ybca site:
Yerba Buena Center for the Arts is proud to announce a new limited edition woodblock print by David Shrigley. The print is 22 1/2" x 16 1/2" on Hahnemühle Copperplate 300gr paper, printed at Kala Art Institute in an edition of 250 signed and numbered by the artist.

was surprised to find out that it costs more to have it framed in the simplest possible type (am guessing my choice to make the framing of the "archival" type made it more so).  maybe i've just gotten too used to disposable ikea frames.
