New print release: this week the Working Proof is teaming up with artist Sarah Burwash to bring you her print The Fox Sisters to benefit Victory Junction. I enjoyed finding out through Sarah’s interview that there is an interesting history story behind this print:
The Fox sisters were three sisters who played an important role in the creation of Spiritualism. The Fox sisters were born in a small farming community, Consecon (near Belleville), Ontario. Last winter I attended a residency near this community and was researching the area, more specifically notable women who settled in the back woods of that area in the early 1800s, such as Susanna Moodie. I came across the Fox sisters in my research and was intrigued and decided to make some drawings around their enticing story.
Sarah has chosen to pair with Victory Junction because she believes strongly in the healing power of mother nature and the outdoors, and am inspired by the idea providing care for children in a camp environment.
This print is available in multiple sizes. It was digitally signed by the artist. The 8×10 and 11×14 prints are numbered by The Working Proof, and the 16×20, 24×30, and 30×40 prints come with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Learn more here.

I was at the Post Office the other day and saw these beautiful Earthscapes stamps in the glass case. I was buying a large amount of stamps for one of Anna’s mailings. Unfortunately they did not have 50 sheets of them, so I ended up with the plain old flag stamps.
The Google Glass project has a lot of promise and is going to be the future at some point. You can even apply to be part of the first rounds of the product. However, I hate to think that a lot of the time looking through them is going to be starting at a computer at a desk in an office.
Looking more like a scene from a sci-fi movie than something right under your feet in midtown, these photos from the MTA’s East Side Access project shows that the MTA really does make progress in some pretty serious construction projects. Now if only the 2nd Ave subway could be finished soon…
In the vast barren landscapes of the southern Kalahari, Sociable Weaver Birds assume ownership of the telephone poles that cut across their habitat.Their burgeoning nests are at once inertly statuesque and teeming with life. The twigs and grass collected to build these nests combine to give strangely recognisable personalities to the otherwise inanimate poles.
The print, Communion_My Unicorn, describes the scene of a boy who was left out because of a horn on his head. One day, he met a unicorn who had a horn like him. They sympathized with each other and were consoled. It is reminiscent of my childhood – my unique characteristics created loneliness and I sometimes had a hard time.
Madame Lolina has chosen to pair with the Kids In Need Foundation because in a society of wide-spread capitalism, she wants to help children in the marginalized zone of education.
