See you at Surtex!

Super excited this year to attend my very 1st Surtex Show in New York. What is Surtex you may ask, Surtex is a HUGE get together of many artist, agents, studios, licensing firms all together in one place. To view and licensing art for many lovely products. This event takes place every year in New York around may and last for 3 days. This year I am just walking the floor to see what this market is all about for an artist like myself. This will be one of the most inspirational conventions I will ever attend and kick me into gear to enter this career as a licensing artist.

For fellow artist going to Surtex good luck and meet you there !

Mother's Day

For Mother's Day I decided to create one of a kind gifts for Mother's Day with my sunday kids class. I've seen around the craft blogs lately the DIY sharpie mug. I decided to try it for myself I purchased a nice cheap white mug at the dollar store and a bag of sharpies. The outcome and design process was a blast ! I recommend everyone try it !! I followed this lovely blog called the Best Of This Life by Emily Smith. click for directions.

I always think birds represent Mother's perfectly. They create beautiful nest from the best materials they can find. Watch carefully over their young. Just a beautiful creature. For my design I used a bird and many florals. After carefully drawing out my design I let my cup to dry and later baked it in the oven. 

Designs done by my lovely students as well as hand made pvc pipe flowers. 

Outcome was great. Every mom loved their cups.
