Catching Up

First, as I've mentioned elsewhere, the Bayou Boogaloo rocked! Thanks to everyone who stopped by, said hello, and made copious purchases from me that day. We had nearly perfect weather and thousands came out to enjoy the bayou, the music, the excellent food (Squeal BBQ won my pick of the day with their pulled pork over roasted cheesy corn grits for only $5!), all the art and crafts, and a beautiful late spring day. (That's my booth at the Boogaloo, to the left - but you can see all my pics from that day on my Flickr page.)

The New Orleans Craft Mafia got noticed in a big way by the fashion editor of the Times-Picayune, who published a nola.com article the next day which also eventually made it into the print version of the T-P a few days later. NewOrleans.com also noticed us and published several pics in their online galleries.

With the Bayou Boogaloo having passed, I am now in the long summer stretch of no outdoor markets. It doesn't mean I won't be out and about some over the summer, but if I do a market or show, it will be indoors. It's just too darn hot and doing the outdoor markets in this heat and humidity takes too much of a toll on my health. So I will largely be focusing on making new work and selling it on my Etsy shop - so why don't you bookmark that and check back in regularly to see what new stuff I've got for sale?

I do still have some of my 70119 t's left after the Boogaloo, though I am sold out in size large. And I have just posted some of my "ride" bicycle prints and canvases that I have in stock (the first two sold within a week of my posting them!). This week I will be working on a new series of stencil prints and/or paintings, but I'm not going to let the cat out of the bag yet about their theme until I see how it's going to work out. But I think it'll be a fun and popular series, with endless potential.

Oh, and I'd be remiss not to mention the Craft Mafia's big 4-year anniversary party on June 18th that we're working on with our friends at Antigravity Magazine and Twisted Hair Salon. Click to enlarge the flier for the event (at right) in order to read all about it. I'll be posting much more about this soon, as soon as we've got more of the details worked out. But it's going to be a blast, so pencil it in on your calendars now!
