I'm happy to report that lately, I've been showing my work on the town. Here are some highlights from my recent adventures.
The CTN Roadtrip in downtown Burbank
|We arrived a couple hours before it opened to set up. It's cool seeing the street empty, knowing that it will soon be decorated with artwork and bustling with people.|
|It all begins with a tablecloth.|
|We have TWO tablecloths! We're fancy like that. We even have a sign with our names on it! Fancy fancy!|
|All set up! Day one was pretty windy, so occasionally I weighed down my prints with little mirrors I brought for decoration. Still, my business cards really liked to visit Jordan's side of the table.|
|On day 2, I set up differently. Shuffle, shufflle, shuffle. Keepin' it fresh.|
|Time for a super pose! (And there on the right are Jordan's needle felted creations!)|
|What's this? Victor bought sushi for us!!! (It was a long day and we were so hungry. Protein bars only fill you so much.)|
|This caterpillar roll looked amazing! Inside was sea eel. <3 My favorite.|
|Sushi party. So good!|
A Spring Pop-up Shop at BOLD LA
|For this show, we needed to provide our own table and chairs, so the car was really packed! Our suitcases of art were in the trunk.|
|Maybe I'm weird, but I like to document (and marvel at) how I pack my suitcases and boxes. I try to be efficient. This time, I packed a lunch and TWO bottles of water, which were much needed!|
|At this show, I had a little side table for my jewelry. :)|
|Here we are at BOLD LA in downtown LA. (We put our white tablecloth on the window because the sun was INTENSE!) Feeling fine, feelin' fierce.|
The Spring Pop-up Shop was a much smaller event than the CTN Roadtrip and the marketing was entirely up to the artists and vendors involved. (*cough cough* Next time, I'll advertise for it a little more.) I actually didn't sell a single thing, but that's ok. It was fun hanging out. I get the feeling that this sort of thing can be hit or miss. It all depends on who's there and what you're selling. :) We can only hope to unite people with art they'll love!
|Here's an advertisement I made for the Spring Pop-up Shop. Magic crystals and mermaids!|
Next up, I'd like to open an online shop. I'm currently researching and trying to decide what e commerce platform to use. There are so many! Etsy, Shopify, Society6, RedBubble, storenvy, Squarespace... Wish me luck! ^_^
