Things I Shouldn’t Have Touched is a little book I’ve been meaning to produce for some time. It contains an illustrated collection
of trash/debris I found in the Kenton neighborhood of Portland a couple summers ago. The newsprint pages fold out to a poster for
maximum designer nerdiness.

I’d love to give you one for $5.

Lots of book ambition going on here. Next book, Does This Make it Better?, will be out at the end of January.

    Hey, do you have an online shop? I love all of your work.

      Hi Meg,

      No online shop, I’m kinda a “email what you want” kinda operation.
      Glad you like the goods!
