i wrote a billion headlines for this bloomingdales men’s fall 2010 catalog. here’s one that actually made it into the book. this section was about some of the fall trends with a taste of punk.

paper butterflies in my stomach

some examples of the hand-made greeting card line, called “butterfly”, that i created for the high-end boutique ikram in chicago. all artwork was hand cut paper on paper.
