Pop-Up Vendor: Tom Runkle
We have a lot in store for folks this Friday night at the Canoe pop-up shop, including the amazing artwork of Tom Runkle. Tom is a cut glass artist who creates mirror portraits of classic rock-n-roll music icons.

Each of his portraits is cut by hand, not using a glass saw, because he's wonderfully old school like that.

 The butcher's favorite, Tom Waits.

Tom will have several pieces, both large and small, for sale on Friday, and you can also contact him for custom work.

Before we go, just a quick shout out to our new readers from Austin Thrillist--welcome! We had a great write up this morning, which you can check out here. Our Canoe online shop will be open for business on Saturday for those of you who can't make it to the pop-up event on Friday. Stay tuned this week for more sneak peeks and vendor highlights!
