Don’t think I forgot about you!! No, no, no..not even a little bit!
I’ve been working like crazy and I am now in the process of interviewing a few Sharpie artists for the Sharpie Spot. I’ve sent out a couple interviews and now am awaiting their return! What do I have coming, you ask? A little bit of this, a little bit of that. I hate when people say that I’m sorry… I’ll give it to you straight:
1) Casey Burns is an illustration and design artist who’s work I have been following for a while now. I have a quick blurb about him on my Sharpie Art! page, in case you thought you were having DejaVu. I sent his interview out just a little bit ago after he emailed me saying thank you for the shout-out on my blog! What a nice guy, right?! Well, once you’re nice to me I like you, so Casey, WELCOME TO THE SHARPIE FAM! I’m really excited to see what he has to say, and I am doubly excited for you all to read about him! Check Casey and his art out at the following links…a) Casey’s Website b) Blog c) MySpace d) Archive of Posters on Gigposterscom
2) Next up we have Karen Edwards, owner, creator and designer of SHARPWOOD. This creative and talent artist salvages pieces and re-designs them with Sharpie markers! Her work is quite incredible, with sort of a bali, safari look – I am probably not even explaining her style correctly, hence why I interviewed her! 🙂 Hand painting each piece, Sharpwood pieces are one of a kind and truly masterpieces. The detail that goes into her work is magnificent and beautiful. The collection includes wide range of products such as, guitars, chairs, light switch covers & light fixtures, a guitar pick-guard, drums, bowls, plates, and more!

3) Aside from interviews, I am also working on developing plans for Sharpie at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York next month! You better believe that I am SO EXCITED for this! Recently, Sharpie was contacted by the cutest, most creative designer, Erica Domesek, founder the DIY brand, P.S.-I Made This… Erica came up with an idea for “Sharpie Bar” at Fashion Week where designers, celebs, artists, attendees… to customize, design and put their mark on fashion accessories with an assortment of Sharpie markers and pens! What a great idea right? So, Erica, my boss Susan (Follow Susan on Twitter) and I have been running wild putting this awesome event together. Fashion Week is the 3rd week of September and the Sharpe Bar will be open Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9am to 3pm! So, if you are in town stop by to personalize a pair of sunglasses, a headband, sneakers, t-shirts, bracelets, AND MORE! This is going to be off the hook, can you tell I am psyched? I’ll give you more details as they flow in!
I am working on a few more interviews and projects but I need to leave a little bit of mystery, right?! Keeping checking up on the site and you can follow me on Twitter for updates too!
