I’m going to Orlando, baby! I got an email from a gallery owner here in Atlanta who is also the president of the Surf Expo (January 12-14, 2012). It’s a trade show for companies to show off their newest products and sell them to retailers. I’m one of six artists who were offered free booths (over $4,000 value…wowza).
This is very exciting. Big brands will be there including giants like Vans, Volcom, DC Shoes, and Quiksilver. Last year the president said one of the artists got six deals with companies to make art for them. I’m hoping something similar will happen this year. Even if it doesn’t, this is still a huge deal getting my name and brand out there.
