daisoluckycatsWelcome to Linocat, a blog of minor poetry and crafts considerations and an archive of poems and made things of Debbie Yee.

cats and linocuts 058I was inspired to spruce up a previous blog and name it after a linocut print of a contemporary Japanese Lucky Cat illustration I created at a printmaking workshop I took with Billy at 3 Fish Studios in Dogpatch, San Francisco this summer.  The proprietors of 3 Fish Studios, are Annie Galvin and Eric Rewitzer.  They are a husband-wife artist duo with day jobs. They were so warm and welcoming, each with his and her own artistic style and preferred medium, that Billy and I wanted to be copycats (with the highest regard, of course) and have fantasized about having our own studio one day where we, too, could have people come by just to make stuff.  cats and linocuts 067
