It’s been a long time coming but the countdown is on now! I think there is about 60 days till i trek to New York for my ART dreams!
As most of my friends know already, but some don’t, I am fulfilling a 7 or 8 year dream of attending SURTEX. Not only am i going to be attending it, but EXHIBITING at it! OMG!! Surtex is THE art licensing trade show – it happens once a year in New York!
I first heard about this trade show years ago when i worked in fashion, then i had kids, now i still have those kids, but they are old enough to handle Gran looking after them for longer now.
I am going to be armed with my portfolio, a blurb book of prints and our super saucy booth for Forest Foundry Art Collective is going to look amazing!
I am heading over with my art collective friends there are 8 of us from all over the world who have joined together to make this trip happen. It’s a very expensive trip, coming from Australia to NY. Lots of logistics to consider: flights, accommodation, travel, shipping of booth banners, costs involved in the show! OH MY! BUT it’s an investment in my future and my art. Of course I will not be alone in this venture, Josh will be coming with me, although he’ll be enjoying the sights of Brooklyn while i’m busy wheeling n dealing at the show.
Gawd I can’t wait! I’ll post more of my preparations and also sneak peak of my blurb book (which is almost finished!) so stay tuned. xo
P.S OMG i almost forgot to tell you where to find me! BOOTH 726 at the Forest Foundry collective booth! Also please contact me to make an appointment.
