In between what feels like 80 holiday events, I was able to paint this *Rhiannon*-inspired @doomednyc vest to be raffled off with funds going to @themitakuyefoundation at her KICK OFF PARTY // This SUNDAY @rockarolla_bk 4-8pm
Over two years in the making @doomednyc is excited to finally present it’s first piece of apparel; the White Lightening Women’s and the Smoky Mountains Men’s Motorcycle Vests. In celebration of the release DOOMEDnyc has partnered with me and 4 other artists: @lamoursupreme @aware_indecline @hannahkhymych and @johnthepainter of @indianlarrymotorcycles to create a capsule collection of One-of-a Kind vests that will be raffled off in an online raffle to raising funds for @themitakuyefoundation ❤❤❤ tickets and raffle rules available at DOOMEDnyc.com
Confused a lot of friends with this in my stories, and now it can live here for digital forever ⛸🏅 Is this the magical holiday Vichcraft content you’ve been searching for? No? K sorry about that more letters and birds tomorrow.
This Friday 12/7 & Saturday 12/8, I’ll be chainstitching (bring me a jacket!) and selling Vich goods at @fieldnotesbrand HQ alongside some *major* buddies. I highly recommend coming out - this is always one of my favorite holiday popups of the season!
Attn. anyone who will conveniently already find themselves downtown Chicago tomorrow: I’ll be chainstitching at @chicagoathletichotel from 6:30-8:30pm 🥀 You should come by and bring some denim for me to stitch, and grab a drink at Happy’s, the @landandseadept holiday popup bar! ❄️🌲⛄️
Since it’s #givingtuesday, I figured I’d round up an update of what we’ve been able to donate via purchases from shop to date 🖤 Giving back has been a major part of Vichcraft from the beginning, and together we’ve raised over $11,000 for organizations like @naacp @cairchicago @nwpc_national @blklivesmatter @aclu_nationwide @chicagowomenshealthcenter @trevorproject & @plannedparenthood Thank you for allowing me to continue to make these donations to massively important organizations. 🖤 This makes me want to draw more letters for all of you 😈
Next month, I’ll be contributing a piece to this show at @brlsq‘s @coexhibitions, and I also had the pleasure of designing the exhibition lettering. Buying my first gig poster from @brlsq at @flatstock in high school was my first introduction to graphic design, and seeing their work made me realize I wanted to study it 🖤 Receiving an email from them on my birthday 10+ years later asking if I want to contribute to their group show makes me feel so proud and excited for what’s to come (which are especially welcome feelings during such a dark time as a country). So thanks!!
CHICAGO! I'll be opening my studio to the public this December for three days for you to come by and get stitched & gifts for the holidays. Those dates will be:

Merry Vichmas & Happy Hanukkraft

Spent the last week in nyc and two different strangers asked me if I was “””VICHCRAFT””” and idk I guess I falsely assumed most of y’all don’t know what my face looks like but cat (bird) is outta the bag 😈 Also, these girls to the front shirts are up in my shop as a preorder for 9 more days!!! 📸 @anna.zajac__
Lately everything I read makes me sad/angry but I had the pleasure of designing and chainstitching this jean jacket for a sweet friend who got eloped yesterday in it, and *that* doesn’t make me sad OR angry 💫✨
