Getting ready for Printsource August! Simply the best time of year to be in NYC. I’m looking forward to it already! Didn’t I just get back?

Blueprint is over.. what a whirlwind! I can’t believe 5 days flew by just like that! This was definitely a show of a different color (pun intended). Everyone exhibiting and circulating the show all admitted openly to feeling the energy and comrodery at Blueprint. I have to admit I was unsure how I would do at this particular show as it was full of talented artists and prolific agencies. Not to mention the majority of the buyers were from the paper product industry. Seeing as I have mostly been selling to fabric and apparel companies, I was very curious and eager to see how the paper and gift industry would accept Designastration Studio. Much to my delight I had a very successful show! Most of my design friends know that I’ve been itching to have my designs on wrapping paper, and it was a dream come true when several wrapping paper companies stopped by and purchased some of my most special designs. I’m so excited to share that my artwork will also be on greeting cards, gift bags, party tableware, and even stationary! One of the giftwrap buyers also mentioned the possibility of using the characters in the design for wall decals!
Everyday of the show was busy except for Sunday, which also happened to be the opening day at Surtex. On Sunday the artists and studios spent some of the slow time getting to know each other and having so much fun. Artists from the UK, Europe, and from all over the US all pitching in, sharing ideas, and talking about art. How could you not fall in love with Blueprint?

Oh happy day! Dreams do come true! Bowie Styles was kind enough to post some of my artwork and Blueprint flyers on her famous blog: Print & Pattern. Every morning I enjoy my coffee while seeing what wonderful artwork she has lovingly posted on her blog; and this time I got a lovely surprise :) How exciting!
