. . . ” Revive. Embrace. Sew patches onto patches. Extend. Insure. Rely on stones and Mothers. Tell time by crow flight. Always learn and grow. Please. Make enough to spare. Seal summer away. Invite winter. Eat out. Make sauerkraut. Expand your use of tools.” – Nikki McCLURE
created from a single sheet of paper and an x-acto blade, McClure’s highly-detailed works were first popularized through their use on record covers and fanzines of the 1990’2 Riot Grl movement. Today, her iconic, intricately hand-crafted imagery can be seen in magazine illustrations, journals, children’s books, apparel, and in her much sought-after yearly calendar – press release
