Spring Makers Fair

Yesterday I attended the Texas Avenue Makers Fair in downtown Shreveport, and it turned out to be the biggest and best yet! Huge crowds, a great variety of talented vendors & performers...and a surprising amount of hula hoop action throughout the day.

Always proud to be a part of this event and I love to see the local (and ever-growing) art community get together. Below are some photos I snapped when I got to sneak away from my table!

A quick shot of the TOOMASOOBA booth. I try to vary my setup and offerings a little
bit for each show I attend...gotta keep it fresh.
Twang Darkly playing a set on Saturday afternoon. Gotta love that upright bass.
Some prints and such by Lesley John...I dig the figures she painted up for the Fair!
The always-rad Art Punch representing for America.
Danielle Griffith and her killer illustrations. Needle-felting, too!
I have no rhythm at all, but I was mesmerized by Paul King's Index Drums.

Boomabot Plush

In late 2010, I collaborated with my good pal Samantha Krause to produce a series of limited-edition handmade (and oh-so-cute) Boomabot plush. They turned out amazing...and sold like gangbusters! I recently ran across some pics and, since the little guys were completed in the pre-blog days, thought I'd show off a few photos below.

Samantha has a new venture these days called POKEY!!! -- check it out and buy some handmade awesomeness from her. We plan to work together again this summer on some TOOMASOOBA creations, so stay tuned for glimpses at what gets cooked up!

The Boomabot Army.

Totally Tote!
Little known fact: Boomabots love musicals.
