We just checked Surtex off the list of this year. Can I tell you...it feels good! The show went really well. Antonio was on his own this year. It turned out that I was unable to go which actually worked out just fine! Making all the new work, preparing the booth set up, getting all the promotional stuff ready & then doing the whole meet and greet at the show can really wipe you out. This was our 11th Surtex so I guess I've earned a year off. I ended up making way too many banners I had 12 but only had room for half of them once Antonio saw the booth. (I can get stuck on things so this drove me crazy) Roll with the punches... right?
I hope the show was successful for all the designers attending. It really does require such effort & commitment to build a strong body of work with a point of view. There are good years & bad years for all of us. (even when the work is good) I'm happy this was a good one! Now I roll into my busiest time of the year. Big exhale!
