1015 Folsom Handmade Ho-Down: Urban Craft Fair past Thursday

Rick and I just finished Handmade Ho-Down, an urban craft fair at the renowned 1015 Folsom St. this past Thursday. Rick was one of the main organizers and founders of the event. The event hosted live DJs, live spray-painted art, mixed drinks, and 55+ artisans and vintage dealers. By around 5:30pm, we had a line of people going around the building waiting to get in.
Our little apartment turned into a production studio for the past couple of months. On top of keeping up with work, personal projects, and school, we were also making art for the show. We lived off ramen, pizza, coffee and take-outs for all the late night 5am sleep time, but it was super fun and well worth it! We had a table showcasing our illustrations, prints, silkscreened ties, buttons, and more. We are very grateful and thrilled to be so well-received. I sold out of 2 line of prints, Rick sold many of his ties and also sold out on a line of prints. All in all, it was festive and successful! I hope people enjoyed our art.

Here is a snapshot of us at 11:45pm, after having slept about 2-4 hours per night for the past two months, we were pretty dead, but happy. We can't wait until our next show. Our collaborative design studio, MonkeyandSeal will be present at the San Francisco Center for the Book's Holiday Fair with more art. Thank you for all of your support!
