Day one of Surtex. I have to say, the show was not what I was expecting. The vast majority of artists/illustrators were very traditional in their styles and imagery. There was LOTS of Holiday stuff. And lots of stuff geared directly toward each consumer holiday: Halloween, Easter, Valentine’s, etc etc–plus “Everyday” and “Occasional.” But mostly Holiday with a capital H. And less patterns and more paintings.
Ted started bugging me after the show set-up day to do a snowflake design, but I did the bagels and rain instead. So here’s my Holiday snowflake design.
