Renegade Recap

The Renegade Craft Fair, San Francisco style, was as totally inspiring and full of eye-catching goodness as always.  I was really excited that Emily Martin of The Black Apple made it again this year.  Her blog is one of my favorites, and I've been collecting her art for over a year now.  I excitedly picked up another print from her "Lost on the Midway Series" which is now awaiting a frame and a place on the studio wall.

Lost on the Midway.

My favorite discovery was the booth of Good Bye Blue Monday, run by fellow Californians Shoshana, Erin and Dru.  They make some of the most adorable hug-ables I have ever seen.
"Hug A Cloud" and "Celine" - Both available on Etsy!

I couldn't resist such sweet little faces, and brought a new friend home:
Coco! (She loves Instagram.)

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!  Time to enjoy the last few hours of Sunday.

i love emily and her work! she was one of the original bloggers/indie artists i discovered and she really inspired me to follow my own dream of being a full time artist.

last year i was traveling in portland, or with my sister. we randomly went into a little shop/gallery (called Land) that happened to be showing her "midway" series! the show had opened a couple of days before. i would have died if emily herself was there. i did get to see all of the series in person though, which was definitely a nice treat :) the shop owners said that all but 1 or 2 paintings had been sold already.. amazing.

I'm so behind on my Renegade post! The fair was awesome this year, even though I spent way too much money :)
