San Francisco Open Studios

This year I took part in San Francisco Open Studios. Artists host this event each year, where you can visit their studios, buy some art and have fun. It is the oldest and largest open studio program in the country that showcases over 800 emerging and established San Francisco artists in their studios.

My friend Melissa Mohammadi decided to share her studio with other artists, whose works she liked. It was a great experience! I'm glad to meet these awesome abstract artists.

My husband and me made a video with art and interviews with each of the 6 artists at Sawyer Street Open Studios.

I did all the design for this event: logo, fliers, stickers, etc. Stay tuned for a blog post on them:)

Explorer Tattoo Conference

I was lucky enough to spend 3 full days of June at Explorer Tattoo Conference in Washington, DC. It is an event for professional tattoo artists who want to move our industry forward. Organized by super professionals: Teresa Sharpe (owner of Unkindness Art), Timmy B (owner NiteOwl Tattoo), Jes Farris and Jake Farris (owners of Studio 13 Tattoo),
and Nathan Evans (owner of Killjoy Tattoo).

Every day was filled with lectures and discussions by great presenters. I learnt a lot of new things on color theory, equipment, composition, visual storytelling and technique. We even had an opportunity to be reviewed by a presenting artist. I had a nice talk with Cody Eich. Love his art so much and want to get a tattoo by him when he opens his books:)

Each attendee even got a bag full of presents: conference t-shirt, ink, aftercare, tube and needle samples, and signed print by Teresa Sharpe.
