Printsource August is over!
I’m so very happy I attended this show! I was a little nervous (what else is new) since August is usually slower than May and January, but I decided to go for it. I’m so glad I did! I made some great new connections, sold a bunch of artwork, and got into some new product categories! Kids undies, fleece fabric, and pool toys! Can’t wait to see the new products!

I also can’t wait to go back in January. See you this winter NYC! But first, let me enjoy the rest of this summer and even some fall.

A year or so ago, while I was researching trade shows for the surface design industry, I started coming across whispers of a brand new show that would be starting soon called Blueprint. After a bit of research I discovered that Blueprint was the brainchild of Cinnamon Joe Studio, a studio whos artwork often inspires and delights me. I became fascinated by the idea of this new type of show.. (imagaine! a show created by artists!) I watched their website and blog for any clues and details. From what I could tell exhibiting at the show was by invite only and it consisted of the most prolific artists and agents in the industry.
The success of their first show became more then just industry gossip and rumors. During my visits to other shows, the whispers of Blueprint turned into a growing excitement. They have since had their second show and after hearing so much about their great accomplishment I wrote to Cinnamon Joe/Blueprint and crossed my fingers.
A few days ago I got a call from the UK. Due to a last minute change… Blueprint had one extra spot!

When I first started talking to artists and agencies about their experiences showing at trade shows; I was told by everyone that you need to show at least 3 times before buyers start to take you seriously.
Well, my third Printsouce New York show is over and I’m so excited to say that it was a great success! I had the distinct opportunity to meet so many new companies and sell to so many new product categories. In spring 2017 my designs will be available on diapers, baby onesies, gift paper, bed sheets, and kids craft materials. I also sold quite a few patterns and collections to fabric and quilting material manufacturers.
3rd time is indeed a charm!
See you in August Printsource!

It’s that tiDesignastrationme again! Time to update the website with some shiny, new artwork in preparation for Printsource New York! 3 new collections have just been added to the public Surface Design page on my website. So far, over 60 new pages of artwork have been added to the online catalog since the January show. That’s right around 100 patterns! I’m so happy and so proud at the quality of work I’ve been able to produce in preparation for the August show and I can’t wait for the opportunity to share them!
This season I’ve been focusing on character development and narrative graphics and it’s really taken my artwork to a whole new level! Also, I have made a very personal decision to only create/exhibit artwork that shows girls in a positive light. No ‘Diva‘ tee shirt designs available at Designastration’s booth. Nope!
