Ask me anything   about   posts by: erica   michaela   myla   shannon   zina   

My Fancy Brain! consists of Erica Schapiro-Sakashita, Michaela Baird Coffield, Myla Fay, Shannon Finnegan & Zina Goodall. We like to post things we've made and projects we're working on.

MFB Spring News

Our favorite wanderer, Myla, is hitting the trail again. She is heading out for the next, oh, about six months, to hike the Continental Divide Trail, which spans the distance between Mexico and Canada. Follow her blog and read her amazing interview in The Hairpin about her last adventure on the Pacific Crest Trail,

Also, tonight! Our pattern expert, Shannon, has a show opening at the Invisible Dog in Brooklyn. She’s been locked in a glass house all week, writing on the walls. Chances are good that the results will be incredible.

Finally, and most bizarrely, The My Fancy Brain Joke Book will be for sale at McNally Jackson Books (52 Prince st. Soho, NYC) starting next week. If you were wondering where to get a $3 book o’ dicks, consider this your answer.

much love,

I was irritated that the mailman buzzed my apartment while I was in the bathroom but my heart melted when I saw this return from the How Ya Doin’? Mail Art Project.

This is from Jemm in Zamboanga City, Phillippines. Jemm included a really sweet piece of journalism on fiction, a lovely bookmark tag and used my favorite-ever bunch of stamps.

So great.
