I spent a decent portion of yesterday moving myself into a terrific new store that will be selling my wares.
Distinct Designers is the brainchild of Megan Sullivan. She’s done a great job creating a fun, friendly space and I can’t wait for the Grand Opening on Friday. If you are an LA-local please stop by!
This is particularly great for me as they are on what is called the “West Side” and the other stores that sell me are in the Los Feliz/Silverlake area (for those of you who don’t live here LA is vast and no one – unless they have to- goes much beyond their little section of it. So saying my stuff is in Los Feliz but is now on the West Side is like saying “I have a store in Columbus but I’ve just opened one in Cleveland”)
And New Stuff!
I have been, in some ways, in a rut of late. I’m happy with what I’m doing but have been feeling a bit like a factory – churning out the same things/products. It felt like my creative juices kinda stopped flowing. But for some reason, over the last week or so, I’ve kicked back into gear.
Playing the sandbox lead to my Subway Graphic Signs
And new coaster ideas are (at last!) starting to come to me again after a long “I have no ideas” period.
As you know I’m all about the graphics and nostalgia. I’ve been collecting those old Postcard Folders from the 30s and 40s for years because I love the fun images. I’ve used the images from the postcards on my HOME signs but it just dawned me that the covers are equally awesome
In the works are Ohio, San Francisco, Texas and Florida!
