I wish I could say Renegade SF was a smashing success, but it wasn’t. Funny thing, though – I had a blast. I didn’t sell much (well, except for iPhone cases, fishnets bags, and flower bags), but my work got a really good reception. And my booth looked gorgeous. All that agonizing over colors and banners and display paid off.
So many friends helped me out, which is a reminder of just how much of an art community I’ve developed. Saturday was the day of three Steph(f)s: Stef Lindeen helped me set up (and took these gorgeous photos*), Steph Cortes helped me sell, and Steph Dodaro stopped by to buy me a beer. Sunday, the lovely Amelia Strader kept me company for five whopping hours.
So, yeah – feeling pretty lucky to have done the show. At the end of the weekend, I decided that Renegade is probably not the best venue for me to sell my art. To figure out how to get the word out about my work, I’m working on a marketing plan, and researching art fairs.
