Singer and songwriter, Micropixie, reading Lotus, How Queen Francine Got Her Incredibly Clean Car Paint, a science fairytale, by (my sister!) Elizabeth Worthy, at her sidewalk sale in front of the beautiful Mission swimming pool building.

It was the most wonderful coincidence. My friend and I were on the way to meet my sister for dinner and stopped to browse through the books Micropixie had lined up on the concrete and noticed it--a book that my sister had self-published 7 years ago (and had a mud wrestling release party for.)

Micropixie said she was considering not selling it because she's fond of the illustrations. If you're free Saturday evening at 6pm on June 2, you can see my sister's drawings, made into decals and fired onto pieces of ceramics at the opening party for her show, Reflections on Water at Ruby's clay studio in the Castro. There will be no mud wrestling.

Micropixie will be playing at an event called Illusion at the Mission Cultural Center on Friday, June 1st at 6pm--at this event all of the surfaces of the gallery will covered in white and artists dressed in white will create art throughout the course of the evening for the audience, who should dress in solid colors from head to foot.

Micropixie's favorite books are A House for Mr. Biswas, by V.S. Naipaul ; Girlfriend in a Coma, by Douglas Coupland; Perfume, by Patrick Süskind, The Collector Collector by Tibor Fischer - so, so FUNNY; and the brilliant Babyji by Abha Dawesar. She keeps on buying the last two for friends.
