Quite honestly, the possibilities are endless. Simple cards that a child could do, or more creative projects, like the purses I made. I have gocco-ed fabric, paper napkins, books, leather, felt and more… let me know what you have gocco-ed. Ohh.. an by the way, for the purses, I used 4 different screens, each one with a design I sketched by hand.
This year, I will be taking part in one of Oslo’s most anticipated holiday shopping events. Designernes eget Julemarket (The Designers Own Christmas Market) Over 140 designers from Norway, England, Belgium, Denmark and Sweden will be selling their creations at DogA (The Norwegian Center for Design and Architecture). Approximately 10,000 people pass through the doors over the course of 2 days… and the good stuff goes fast!
A great benefit should you collaborate with someone who is living in another area of the world, you can both benefit by exhibiting the work which means that you get exposure in a location that would, until now, have been an unlikely venue.
One thing I love is to come across a great tutorial that gives you a glimpse of the day to day workings of an artist. To see a work in progress is something that I cherish. Watching it come to life step by step.
