RRR.003

RRR.003 4

It feels like a very long time ago but, at one point, The Fox Is Black had a giveaway of the zine RRR. It was the second issue of the very graphically driven publication and we were so super pumped to see more from it.

And I work there now.”

This is very much Greta’s style: she will do anything to get herself painting. She has itchy painter’s hands that need to be scratched daily.
