This is going to be a quick Recap for Renegade Chicago. My best friend Dave Whitley came on the road with me to help me set up and stuff. What would I do without Dave. I just have no idea. He put the finishing touches on my website 2.0 on Friday night before Renegade on Saturday.
I got to catch up with some friends that I met at Renegade Austin and see one of my dear friends and mentors Jessica Swift. If you haven’t looked out her work, it is simply incredible. Her color sense is just hands down amazing. I love her original style. And she is so genuine and kind to every single person.
I was compulsively checking the weather before we left because this show was outside and everything I have is paper! And I don’t know why but no one wants to buy wet prints… BUT the weather was BEAUTIFUL. The sun was out and it was not too hot (now it might have been too hot for Chicagoans, but 75 is cool for this Mississippians.) And I can’t even begin to tell you how awesome all the vendors were. There was no puff paint, acrylic crosses and tacky windchimes to be seen. That is MY kind of craft show. I met some artists that I have been obsessed over. We’re talking YEARS. I am surprised I sold anything because every single booth (300+) rocked. I wanted one of everything. I was so excited to trade with some really amazing folks. I’ll be posting about that this weekend.
Here are some photos of Renegade. Hope you enjoy!
