Took that flyer from yesterday (now folded just once, in half) down to the framers’ to get a mat cut for it. That fold line over the image is a little annoying, but there was no way to border the whole flyer without cropping the text or ending up with weird white gaps in the corners. You can’t make a piece like this look bad, anyways.
Tempted to try and get this signed, but no matter what: it’s just cool to finally have concrete (printed) Odutola art that isn’t from a newspaper.
Trifold flyer for Toyin Odutola’s upcoming solo show that the gallery was kind enough to send me. A little roughed up straight out the mailbox, but I think I can flatten it out. Very happy to have this.
PRISM STALKER IS COMING

A commission based on the poem “Snow and Dirty Rain” by Richard Siken.
You said Tell me about your books, your visions made
of flesh and light and I said This is the Moon. This is
the Sun. Let me name the stars for you. Let me take you
there. The splash of my tongue melting you like a sugar
cube…We were in the gold room where everyone
finally gets what they want, so I said What do you
want, sweetheart? and you said Kiss me… .
We are all going forward. None of us are going back.
The prestige of being nominated for an Academy Award is a well deserved honor for cinemas new princess. Although she may be taking everything in stride, as children often do, as I watched her dance around our studio that day with a paper crown falling off her head, I could almost see her growing right in front of my eyes into the woman that will one day take her place on the throne as the Queen of the silver screen. x
Not Like A Friend. Like A Sister.
Keep ‘Em Coming.
