‘Tis the season to get out there and support your local artists and craftspeople and boy, did you! Last weekend was my fourth year participating in Fresh Arts’ 11th Annual Winter Holiday Art Market, and I had a blast getting to meet my fellow art-lovers. If you didn’t get a chance to swing by, check out the official Fresh Arts photo album highlighting the event.
Here I am, animatedly discussing who-knows-what with a friend who stopped by the Friday preview party…
I was pretty happy with how this year’s setup turned out. Thank GOD for those Ikea shelves! They were certainly more work on the front-end (positioning, measuring, re-positioning, running to Target to buy a longer extension cord, drilling) but super convenient any time a framed piece was sold. Or you know, any time I had an OCD moment and felt the urge to rearrange… and rearrange again. Yay for enabling indecision!
After WHAM, I immediately flew to Arizona to spend Thanksgiving with the fam (and the cactus-fam)…
…don’t you think my cactus-brother and I look alike?
This week it’s back to the grind, working on more original illustrations and trying to organize for the holiday rush. If you still want to see me to do some holiday shopping, I’ll have a booth at AIGA Houston’s DesignCraft at Market Square Park this weekend! And for all you vinyl lovers out there, rumor has it I’ll be sharing a spot with my fellow design comrade, Tim, where he’ll be promoting Record Props (check it out to support his kickstarter!)
Hope to see you this weekend!
