Had a Blast in NYC.

Pleased to say my literary reading and Q&A session at KGB bar went amazing as did the Odiosas Art show the next day.  Super grateful to everyone who came out to support me. You make life worth living. *cries*

These are the pieces I debuted at the You ruined me/You made me better art exhibition. They are available on prints and canvases at shopzahirakelly.com.

You can book me for art shows, talks, readings, panels, workshops, events, promo and more at booking@zahira.co.

For the last couple years I had been selling random stuff from RedBubble and was really frustrated with their layout and terrible pricing and wondering if it was worth the money to have my own standalone online store.
