Last last weekend was the summer craftaganza. It was a really good day overall. I love doing fairs, especially in Brighton. There was so many other traders with amazing things. I bought a good handful of stuff but could have easily spent all my earnings for the day.

Some of my purchases:
Lavender pouch from Charm & Laundry
Print by Popcorny
Bee Badge by Laura Drumbrell
Bracelete by Oh Someday
Necklace by bangelibang design

My stall
It was such a sunny day!!
I bought a bamboo cutlery organiser to house my phone cases, works perfectly!

Chichester Street Art....?

Almost 6 weeks ago on a Friday after work Tom and I were sat in our living room on our gadgets wondering what to do with ourselves, when Tom sees something on instagram about Roa in Chichester. We both immediately assume it must be Chichester somewhere else, as it could not possibly be our Chichester. We do a little more investigating and find more images, one which I recognize a building just up the road from us. So we walk up there to check it out, expecting to find nothing. We round the corner to see one of Christiaan Nagel's Mushrooms, then around the corner again we see cherry pickers with Phelgm and RUN on them painting away. We stand watching for a little while, not believing our own eyes. A guy comes up to us to and starts a conversation with us. It turns out he is Cityzen Kane. He tells us who's running it, why it's happening, who else is involved, asks us what we do, he asks to see my artwork and I give him some of my nakkid owl stickers. =MindBlown.

Turns our Griff, who runs Street Art london walking tours and who was our tour guide on the tour we we did last year, is also behind the events. We chat to him a little bit and then this guy in a high-vis jackets give us some artist post cards. It isn't until we are walking away that we realise that is Thierry Noir. We were in Berlin a few month ago and learned all about Thierry, but we didn't connect the dots until it was too late.
Griff gave us some the pamphlet with the map to all the street art and we began our Friday night adventure in our own town.

It was really nice to see the work in progress and meet a few of the artists. We talked with Stik, Roa, and Dskreet who were all super nice people. For the following week we went out for walks as often as we could to try to find all the remaining pieces and see the progress of everything. 

The end.

Tote Bags

I have been playing around with screen printing a little bit. I love the outcome of it, but the setup is so time consuming. I choose two of my favourite nakkid owls to be made into screens and printing a buncha things to test out. I'll be taking these all to my next fair (Saturday June 15th, @ Craftaganza at Fabrica in Brighton) to see how they do and decide whether I will continue making them.

Deer, Wolf, Owl Hole

I have had this picture frame for ages just waiting for something awesome to happen to it. I knew I wanted to do some paper cutting, shadow boxing, 2dee-ness to it, just not sure what.

Ps. Taking pictures of glass is super difficult.

Custom Stacking Dolls - Russian Owls - Behance Feature!

I received my first custom etsy purchase last month for some Russian Owls. The customer preferred larger owls than the ones I had listed, so I tracked down these ones. The largest is about 17cm high. It was nice to be able to get some more detail into the owls. 

Today I also received an email from Behance notifying me that these owls were selected for the Toy Design Behance Gallery.
