Columbus Alive Notes My Pins

The Columbus Alive's Jackie Mantey blurbed regarding my pins in the Wexner Center for the Arts's store in a piece called "Shopping: Gift Shop Top Sellers." The pins were compared favorably to potato chips. If you would like pins that are similar in certain respects to a popular snack food, email here: james.payne.cc@gmail.com.
