Nirvana with Pop Shop America recently interviewed CultGrrrl Creations. I was and still am beyond flattered! I love love love Pop Shop America and love love love participating in their bi-annual art and craft festivals. We will definitely be in attendance at their future events.
Please, if you will, take a moment of your time and check out the interview on the Pop Shop America website – popshopamerica.com/blog/cultgrrrl-interview
I’ve been working up a few new designs finally 😀 I’m very very happy with the way they are working themselves out. My design process is sometimes slow and frustrating…especially for someone like me who loves instant gratification HA! I write up a list of designs, crudely sketch out the design, then get hook in hand. A majority of the time, I end up frogging (or ripping out) the preliminary work but every so often magick happens.
The first design was one of those that have been on the back burner for a short while now. I found these paper mache ‘books’ a while back and instantly felt I had to make a Necronomicon.
I can not believe how quickly this guy worked himself out. Once I had the base down, the face was SO much fun to add. I love that you can open him up and put knick-knacks inside. That is definitely a plus in my book haha!
Next up is sort of a reinvention of a previous design. With the craft beer scene exploding here in Houston, Cthulhu wanted in on the action. I already had a Cthulhu coffee mug cozy on hand and decided to adapt the design for a beer glass. I used a pilsner beer glass because I like that it gives Cthulhu a very proportioned head.
Both of these designs will be making their debut at the markets CultGrrrl Creations will be at in April. I will also be adding them to the online stores soon as well. 🙂
Thank you 8th Wonder Brewery for having CultGrrrl Creations at the first Hop Up Market!
I am so glad the weather decided to cooperate with us (even though the wind was trying its damnedest to blow everyone’s tent off the grounds haha).
I was able to debut a new beer glass cozy. I got a lot of really good feedback on these and already have a few more ideas for the next design 😉
We met some really cool people including fellow vendors that I had not met before. Twas a good time had by all.
Again, we had a ton o’ fun and can not wait to come back! Until next time…
Happy birthday to me! CultGrrrl Creations officially turns five years old today. I am truly grateful for all of the support shown to CultGrrrl Creations these past five years! I can not express my gratitude enough to everyone who has purchased my form of art or even just given words of encouragement.
So, what’s next? I am determined to have at least one new doll / creation a month next year. I do have a list of ideas that will be debuting soon. I’m looking forward to showing all my new designs. I will have the first one in a week or two as I have to get a few supplies for this one. Hopefully, if things go as I envision, it’ll be worth the wait 😉
With the new year right around the corner and in conjunction with our five-year celebration, I am offering 16% off your CultGrrrl Creations Etsy store purchase. All you have to do is use coupon code ‘NEWYEAR16’ on checkout before January 9th.
So cheers for a fantastic five and here’s to many more years of imagining and creating!
I am so very full of gratitude with everyone involved in the Cherrywood Art Fair! This goes to everyone from the organizers, to the volunteers, to the patrons. As you may (or may not) know, this was CultGrrrl Creations debut in Austin and it was nothing short of amazing. Everyone was so receptive and laughed at all my dorky puns haha! I most definitely will have to make my way back to your fair city.
With the close of the Cherrywood Art Fair, comes the close of my market appearances for the year. It has been a fun, super awesome ride this year. Thank you to everyone who purchased a doll or even just stopped by to give me words of encouragement. You guys and dolls RULE ALL! Until next time, cheers! -JC
