Surtex or bust!

For the last few weeks I’ve been afraid my life might be on a turn down to ‘a slightly better life than the average 25 year old’ phase. In a very exciting turn of events – my life has just become more fabulous then it already was!
It’s official, I’ll be showing at Surtex 2008 at Manhattan’s Javitz center!!
I’ll be in booth 405** and the design frenzy starts today. . .
It’s my goal to have 5 designs a week to add to my portfolio while I’m redesigning my website. I’ve decided to keep a Surtex folder on my desktop to upload five new designs to every Thursday night. I’ve promised myself I won’t sleep on Thursdays until there’s a new batch in there. Most of the designs have to have a ‘top secret’ air to them, but I think it will be fun to document my journey by posting at least one inspirational object or sketch that’s fueling my week’s stockpile.
As some of you know, I get fan mail from kids ages 5-10 at my job. As an artist the personal letters we get from the babes really help to fuel the projects I work on. My favorite is tacked next to my lightbox in my studio and it simply reads:
Hay people,
You better Draw mor pictchers in 3. . . 2. . . 1. . . NOWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!S
Your friend,
Alex P.

I feel like it was written especially for this grand occasion.

**Hi Everyone! There’s been a change of plans. This year I’ll be calling Surtex Booth #2518 “Home.” Booth 2518 is in Hall 1E. Stop by for a temporary tattoo and a smile :)**

Pointer Sisters kinda night🔥 We’ve been ignoring this sweet potato, but he will not be ignored. 🌱☀️🧡🌈
#lifelessons #bloomnomatterwhat Five years ago, I walked into a cozy Brooklyn bar and met the sweetest boy a girl could ever hope to meet. Tonight he made us the sweetest cake to celebrate.❤️ ❤️ I wish today was a Bill Murray kind of Groundhog Day, I’d be in Mexico toasting these love birds. 😭😭😭 #happyanniversary to @happilyeveralvarez & @alvar529 AND happy one year anniversary of New Sister Day to me & @prillie_shakazuzu. We’re so lucky Ashton got us Heather. 😘 High Tea B-Day was at least 1000% better than these pics. 😍💛😭⭐️🍰
#andstillbirthdayweekrageson #letshearitfortheboy #👋☕️ Matt’s Grandfather, passed away peacefully at 93 this week. I am glad for the chance I had to know him. He was great. Matt insanely invited me to a four-generation Father’s Day brunch at his parent’s place when we’d been dating a month and a half. Grandpa Volpe’s first question? He wanted to know my intentions. Here he is at our wedding last year. 💛 He was a true original & he will be so missed. I believe. ❄️✨🎄🎅🏻
#firstsnow #chefwifelife We’ve arrived at my parent’s, where Christmas Spirit is alive & well. What a blessing this ‘Eve has been.🎄✨❄️ #merrychristmas #christmastree #ohchristmastree
