Well I managed to survive Artscape again this year. It was crazy hot and humid, but I still had a lot of fun, met some great people and sold some of my favorite pieces. A special shout out to the ladies of BEST for making it more like a party than work. Also, thanks to my repeat customers and those that came by actually wearing their purchases from last year. I can't tell you what a thrill it is to see someone walk up to the booth wearing a Block Party Press item.
I didn't get a chance to take many pictures since I was in our booth most of the time, but I did get some pictures of one of my favorite Artscape feature, the "Art Cars".
Without further ado, here is the Artscape Art Car Parade:
I love to think about what might have inspired these fantastic creations (some inspirations were more obvious than others). I'm seriously thinking the boys and I will do something to my old car instead of trading it in. Kyle suggested we make a Lego car and Trey suggested we make a Super Mario car. I was thinking of making an animal car gluing all of the boys animal figurines all over the the car. It would be like a giant animal stampede. What kind of art car would you make? Let me know your ideas in the comments.
Don't have a car to create upon? Maybe just think about creating something on a larger scale. I make lots of tiny art, so the idea of making something large can be a bit intimidating, but I'm also thinking it can be a bit freeing. Maybe cover a chair or piece of furniture or just get a big piece of plywood and go to town. Sometimes bigger is better!
