I KNEW you'd be as excited about this as we are!

For those too busy to check out the synopsis on the mini-site, we basically sent the same material pack (all black/white/grey fabrics) to all of the artists...what they do with it is up to them. We sent enough materials that some people have indicated they will be making multiple pieces. It should be awesome.

I'm super freaking excited to see what people will make! I mean, yeah yeah yeah I co-curated it and all, but from an artist and fan standpoint, should be interesting to see what people come up with. Be there for lots o good things to see and fun (and drinks). lemme know if you anyone would like mo' info.

It's got me thinking how ultra rad some of these might look next to my monotone TADO Fortune Porks 8)

In this case it was invitation only....mostly people that professionally make and sell handmade plush...

...otherwise, it's best to just get your work out there, post photos of stuff on forums and such...make sure it's on your website etc. If your work is good, eventually people will take notice. :)

I won't deny that it is hard to get through the door though. We've become pretty selective over the last 6-8 months as we've seen an increase in the number of artists who would like to be in shows/sell their stuff in the store....unfortunately, there's just not enough room for everyone. :(
