I was super stoked to be a part of the last event at Hot Art Wet City (HAWC) called Carded. This Smart Ass was my submission and I was lucky to be 1/50 artists selected to have their art printed on trading cards.
I'm a bit of an introvert, even though I have some extroverted qualities, so sparking conversations with people I don't know is sometimes tough for me. However, these kind of events are a little more than your usual mix and mingle since we're all trying to hustle for the cards we want. I love connecting with the artists and, of course, the collectors who seek me out for a signature or trade. I also do some seeking as well when I get a card that I just have to get signed. I turn into a fan girl, running around trying to find the artist for a signature and meet and greet. That's when it gets fun.
I met some really great people at this one - as usual - and they always impress so I'm hoping they don't die with the closure of HAWC. Time will tell.
This Smart Ass is a part of a larger series I've illustrated and can be found in multiple shops in the form of art prints, mugs, shirts, plaques and more. So head over to my main page and you'll be directed to where to find them.
