the Patti Smith show is up until the end of July, so please be sure to stop by #wildgoosecreative and check it out. some of the art is still available for purchase, so even if you can’t make the show in person, email me to discuss long-distance transactions and keep artists focusing on art and @wildgoosecreative remain a positive instrument in the creative Columbus community. My Patti kimono is still available and instantly makes your morning coffee more badass when Patti has your back ($100). #pattismith #vanessajeanspeckman #jesusdiedforsomebodyssinsbutnotmine

New poetry and pen drawing available in my etsy ///                             I&#8217;ve been pissing blood since St. Louis
But I haven&#8217;t the time or money to stop and find out why
See, we have to be in Columbus tonight
&amp; Brooklyn by Thursday
Please, don&#8217;t tell my Momma because she&#8217;ll start to worry
She already thinks I &#8220;sound too thin&#8221;
&amp; I don&#8217;t want to pay the medical bills to piss in a cup
Just so they can tell me that I&#8217;m 
Running lucky
Running fast
There&#8217;s no time for slowing down
By tomorrow I&#8217;ll be in another town in another state
My destination is never stationary for long

choose your own adventure vintage maps!!!  i have recently come into a collection of beautiful vintage maps (1900s-1950s) that i am hand-painting with hand-cut stencils with original words written by me.  these vintage maps are gorgeous and i wanted to create a way for me to make one-of-a-kind affordable pieces of art using vintage material, because both art and vintage are all too often overpriced.  i am offering four different sentiments for your wanderlust hearts.  $15 each/choose your own adventure or all 4 for $50. available on my etsy. le dig.
