So, it's a new year, and I've got some news!
In May, I'm heading to New York with ArtSHINE, to represent Sydney and, pretty much, Australia at the Surtex, "The Leading Marketplace to Source Original Art & Design":
Now in its 32nd year, SURTEX® is the global B2B marketplace for sourcing original art & design—where artists, art agents, designers, licensors, art agencies and global design studios connect with manufacturers and retailers to create the next best-selling products in every category imaginable. Wall coverings, patterns, decorative accessories, bed linens, stationery, giftware, apparel and so much more…if it’s any product with a surface or textile design of any kind, there’s a good chance it originated at SURTEX.
So, I'll be there looking for anyone who's interested in licensing my art for using...however they want. You could be putting The Mechanicals on backpacks, The Refugees on wallpaper, or Acquisition on...I don't know, a packet of crisps?
It's something I'm really looking forward to, and you can be a part of it! ArtSHINE will be the only Australian group at the exhibition, and I'm going as part of their Launchpad Program. This is good for you, as it means you can choose to be my patron! I've never done the whole patron thing before, and I'm really excited about it. I'll be giving details about the different levels of perks I'll be offering, and you will also have access to my eternal gratitude! Have a look at the link for details.
Remember, you can subscribe to my newsletter, or follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr to get more news about Patron offers and new work. If you have any suggestions for perks I should offer, let me know in the comments!
