Three Knocks, Black Cat Ball, City of Craft!

Happy Monday!! It was an eventful weekend, and I've given myself a little time off to look for a new apartment. Past Friday was the opening night for Three Knocks at Narwhal Art Projects/Magic Pony, and as you might be able to tell from the photo, it runs till December 5th. So there is still time for you to go check it out for yourself. There are 3 different artist, but I only got 2 of the 3.

NYCC, Canzine, Nucleus oh my

"Ugly Dolls @ NYCC"

Hey there, Happy Wednesday! A lot has happened since I last posted! I went to NYCC but I was in the forgotten NYAF artist alley... why can't we all just be together?! That aside, due to complications, I didn't have all my stuff. I had a more limited amount than usual. I shared my table with Morico, she had some bags, cute crocheted items and some original art!

"Our bare but cool table"

We made the best of it and set up our table. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and got one of the new 1%talent featuring rounded corners and spot UV. Overall it, was a good trip and hope I could return to NY soon. 

"I'm running out!"

The past weekend was CANZINE 2011! It was super fun and it was at a new location! Personally I liked the old venue better. Even though we had our own tables, I was still beside Morico, thanks to everyone who came out!

"I'm a meatball!"

Finnally I have a piece in the Power In Numbers show online by Gallery Nucleus. It is on sale for $100 and a portion will be donated to WWF, the World Wildlife Foundation, not the World Wrestling Federation. Check it out, and while you're there, check out the other pieces. It's art for a good cause.

Newest to the family that carry 1%talent shirts, is one strange bird. They are having an opening party tomorrow, (Friday the 14th) so if you're in the area (2515 W. North Ave, Chicago) you should check it out! There will be giveways and draws :)

Sorry for the lack of posts, but here's a quick update. I made a new business card for 1%talent. It's been a while since i designed one so I'm a bit rusty, I also did it in a rush to send to the printers since I'm completely out of the old one.

"Front w/Selective UV coating"


Past Friday was also "Face It - A Portrait Show" By Harvey Chan, It was only on Friday and Saturday, so i think the show it over, the pieces were beautiful in person but here are some picture from the opening night. 

"Mr. Harvey Chan"

"some familiar faces"

"Peter with his Portrait by Harvey"

On the same night Magic Pony/Narwhal was also having an opening, "The world Turn Upside Down" by Lauchie Reid. More paintings, but different stuff. This show goes till November 7 so there still more time to check it out. Some pieces i liked.

Finally I've been busy preparing for NYAF, which is this weekend. My package of stuff is stuck at customs,  and sadly might be sent back. So I've been calling them almost non stop. wish me luck and hopefully all goes well and i'll see you this weekend.

"see you there :)"

The Renegade Craft Fair, Chicago 2011

Pass weekend was The Renegade Craft Fair, Chicago. This year I finally got to walk around thanks to a friend who came by and helped me out by watching my table for me! The weather was great and there was a good turn out this year. I want to thank everyone who came out and supported handmade.

"why hello there, come buy some shirts"

This was my set up. I think I did pretty well, with the limited amount of stuff I could bring with me to the fair.

"under the tent"

It was sunny all weekend and very hot, I was lucky to get the less hot and shady side. Here are some pictures of other vendors. There were so many that i couldn't really see them all. I also tried to link the websites in the captions.

"The Small Object"

I really enjoy graphics by The Small Object, this bag was in front of their tent, I kind of regret not getting it now.

"Funny felt carrots and burgers"

I'm not too sure who made this but it was really cute and very well made. I'll update later when i find out.

"one Canoe two"

These coaster were really neat, they reminded me of home,

"Soda by Amy"

This beautiful town was made of ceramics by Soda, I enjoy all thing houses.
This was Liz Born and Sanya Glisic's tent. I really enjoy the sign they had, it was really eye catching. I wonder what it was made of.

"Lulu B's tent"
These guys (Lulu B's) were riding around the fair all weekend promoting their wine. They were on a fancy bike with colourful balloons behind them. They were hard to miss.

That is it for all the renegades I'm doing this year. Hopefully I'll be at it again next year. For more photos you can check out my flickr. Up next is Canzine, it'll be on Sunday, October 23. At 918 Bathurst Centre, 918 Bathurst St. from 1 – 7 pm

Fan Expo/Otakuthon 2011

Had a great time @ Fanexpo and Otakuthon. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and got something. I also did ZineDream4 in-between, so forgive me for the lack of updates.

"1%talent table with guest ☆ Morico"

At Fanexpo 2011, the table was split with Morico. 


It's never a convention without cosplayers:

"Trek Meets Katamari, both involved space so it makes sense"

At Otakuthon we had a nice big table @ the artisan area, but I didn't really have any neighbors. I was kind of on an island by myself. But it was comfy and roomy.

And some more cosplayers:

"eat meat for bonus stats"

As a thank you to those who keep coming and reading my blog, here's a discount code for free shipping @ just enter BCKOSCHL for the discount. Let's call it "free back to school shipping week". The discount will last till the 9th so hurry :)
