Patience is a Virtue

It may be a virtue, but I'm just dying to show you the first few Leftovers III submissions.
That's right, I've already received TWO sets of Leftovers.   These definitely aren't the guests you have to worry about showing up late , just when you're serving dessert.  

So, I'm going to indulge myself.  After all, I have to scan them anyway, right?   And then I'm going to give you a reallyquickpeeksodon'tblink, okay?

I'll be at the scanner.  You, I imagine you'll be hanging out near the Leftovers Blog to get a quick glimpse of my next post.

Back in a minute . . . or so

Fear Factor

The fear factor seems to be a great motivator.  Well, at least in the political arena these days, and especially when times are tough.   I found this old WWII poster and thought I'd doctor it up a little for the giggles.   You know, something to get the ball rolling with the dinner guests. 

Though those WWII posters actually made a lot of sense - you know, encouraging people to be more resourceful, not wasteful.   Makes sense to me. 


We've still got more room at the Leftovers Table

76 Leftovers Led the Big Parade

But 120 is the number we need to beat!  So I'm gonna do a drum roll on this platter as a shout out to at least 50 other printmakers to get 'em to put some Leftovers on the table.  

And, by the way, that's me in WWII poster print below - right next to my adorable partner, Kirk.   Yes, it's so true.  I was built for comfort, not speed.


All the Whos down in Who-ville Like Leftovers A Lot

But the Grinch, who lived just North of Who-ville, did not!

So, whether it's the Grinch or your inner voice saying "oh, I just don't know if I have time to make 14 teeny tiny little Leftover prints by March 15", throw caution to the Grinch  and scrounge in your drawers or lockers or whatever! Pull out some scraps and give yourself over to wild, printmaking abandon to put some Leftovers on the table!  You can do it, I know you can!


Vitamin Donuts?

Stumbled across this old ad and had to shake my head at how gullible consumers can be.  Fortified donuts, huh? With a minimum of 25 units of Vitamin B1.  Uh-huh.    Betcha there were no leftover donuts in those households. 

Well, we here at Wingtip are hoping everyone has the benefit of having leftovers - whether they're donuts or dolmas, drumsticks or dumplin's!   

And we're hoping you'll be creating some fine fortified prints for the Leftovers III exchange.
We'll share the wealth, have some fun and help the Hunger Relief Task Force fight some hunger along the way.

Let there be Leftovers!

A Golden Oldie

Inspired by an earlier L/O post and the amazing Paul Simon, we're celebrating 50 participants signed up for L/O III so far!

The problem is all inside your head
She said to me
The answer is easy if you
Take it logically
I'd like to help you in your struggle
To be free
There must be fifty ways
To make leftovers.

Slip 'em in the ferric, Eric
Make a new plate, Nate
The prints will be great, Kate
Just get yourself free

Don't sign with a pen, Jen
We need some more men, Ben!
Tear with the grain, Jane
Just get yourself free

Put the paper to soak, Polk
Wipe your plate off, Hoff
That's how it goes, Rose
Just get them to me


Faster than a speeding bullet!

More powerful than a locomotive.  Able to leap tall buildings at a single bound.  Look! Up in the sky.  It's a bird . . . it's a plane . . .

No, it's Leftovers!

It's true! The first Leftovers flew into the mail today . . . all the way from North Carolina!

Who'll be next?


We're looking for your Leftovers!

Yup, we're looking for your leftover scraps of paper to make a good impression!   Go ahead, clean out your flatfiles, find some scraps of luscious leftover paper no larger than 5" x 7" and make an edition of fourteen prints.  

See! It's easy.  Then send those prints off to Wingtip Press, we'll sort 'em and send you a random dozen of prints, keep one for traveling exhibitions and use the leftover 14th print to raise funds to relieve hunger.

Sound good?  We think so.  It's that leftover time of year, so get crackin'



Won't you please think about joining us in Leftovers III?


It's that time again!

Can you believe it?  Me, either!  But it's that time a year again, and who knew?  Wingtip Press is announcing it's 3rd annual Leftover Print Exchange.  Here's the scoop!  And please invite your friends to join us in this remarkable feast.

Please join us!   I promise some fun along the way and will do my best to serve up our Leftovers in exhibitions.  I promise!


Come join us for the feast!

It's official!  The Leftover II prints are hanging at Boise's Sockeye Grill for our first ever Leftovers Silent Auction.   And the proceeds are going to the Idaho Hunger Relief Task Force.
The bids are coming in and will close on Monday, December 5 at 6:00 PM.   If you're in the area, you can stop by for a pint, bid on a print and know that somebody, somewhere in Idaho, will have the benefit of the Hunger Relief Task Force working on their behalf.  Now, isn't that what it's all about?  Making room at the table for everyone.   Wingtip thinks so.  And we're so proud we have all of your lovely leftovers to share and make a difference. 

May you always - and evermore - have Leftovers!
