I’m sure we aren’t the first to use this title, and we won’t be the last, but it is just so damn catchy! Let’s keep it simple: We provide some pencils, charcoal, and a still life, and (this time around), HOT APPLE CIDER. You bring a sketchbook and enjoy drawing in the company of others.

Spudnik Press and The Post Family throw a Party

The results are in: Our housewarming party was a success. October 18th, many many friends dropped in, and we made some new friends too. We couldn’t be more pleased. I took a leap of faith that if I moved Spudnik into a space that could accommodate more printers, more printers would want to use Spudnik, and it all seems to be working out…

A sincere thanks to everyone who has helped along the way…

Thanks also to the Post Family, who both let us take over their old space, and who helped us work out some of the kinks in our new space. Their new digs are incredible… As is their art… Take a look here!
