Mariko Tamaki and I met thorough our fantastic Minx editor Shelly Bond at the Toronto Women in Comic's Symposium. We knew we were old friends the minute we met. She is a true renaissance women who does art, performance art, writes books, teaches and is a champion of pretty much every arty cool thing in the world. She burst onto the comics scene with the book Skim and then wrote Emiko Superstar (which I nominated for a Cybil and it won!)
She is the Queen of the underground and alternative. And while I suck at doing crafts, Mariko doesn't and so she wisely gives us a list that can help us all to do art immediately.
Behold Mariko's top ten list! Crafting!

Black/pink acrylic wool
