For cryin' out loud I can't even express to you how excited I am to be included as an exhibitor at Designercon this year. I have attended the show for the last 2 years and I have to see it's one of if not my favorite convention. I tried to get in as a vendor last year but I applied too late lol. This year I think I applied about 4 times, just to be sure.
The reason I say it's my favorite is because it embodies everything I love about art. So many vastly different artists with vastly different styles are represented at this show. There's truly something for everyone. Personally, I'm geeking out a bit because so many of my design heroes have exhibited at this show and will be back this year! It brings be back to the days of art school when I would get tons of art magazines like Juxtapose and just pour over all the different inspiring people and their work. Pretty sure that's how I discovered Tara Mcpherson my absolute favorite artist and inspiration who typically exhibits at the show! Designercon is like Juxtapose in real life.
I also love how it has given a platform to so many aspiring creatives with little to no criteria. Whatever medium, whatever style, you are welcome at designercon to put yourself out into the art community. There is such a wide range of art too from toys to wall art, jewelry and apparel. As much as I'll be an exhibitor at the show, I'm also a fan and a patron. You can bet that the few minutes I spend away from the Sugar Bunch booth, my ass will be roaming the aisles looking for new art to hang in our house, shirts, accessories and ahhhhh!
As I've never exhibited at this show, I really have no idea what to expect and have tried to prepare as much as possible. I wanted to have a good showing for all the people that have never heard of the bunch but are hopefully about to love it. You can expect our most beautiful set up to date! We'll have some T-shirts from the new Fall to the Beat line as well as some classics. I'm looking to have more beauty products and will have 2 new enamel pins! As another show exclusive, we collabed with Kaiju Cut & Sew to make some Fry-Yay fanny packs and pencil pouches! For the first time, we will have a very small amount of Giclee prints of the Space Needle Design.
I can't wait to see everyone and experience this show as a vendor. I hope to see a lot of you there! Along with items to purchase, we'll have some freebies for saying hi and extra goodies for purchase :)
Tickets are on sale right now! You can be a VIP and get access to the preview night on Friday along with the rest of the weekend, you can just a weekender or come out for just the day!

Not only would you be supporting ya gurl, but you will see hundreds of artists and be overwhelmed with all the cool shit at the show. That's a promise! We'll be at booth #946
Hope to see you there!
Forever ya gurl,
Jess & Sugar Bunch
