Happy May, my friends. I have officially been in LA for over a year now–I survived! Although I still have no concept of direction and don’t know how to find the 405 without my trusty GPS, I’ve grown in many other ways. LA has pushed me to actively work on improving my craft and network as much as possible. Everything moves much faster in LA–kind of like in DC–except in LA there’s always an irrational movie-esque hope that you might get your big break here. I admit it, I feel like that sometimes.
Unique LA was this past weekend at the California Market Center. I missed it last year and this year’s experience definitely made up for it and then some. There were so many talented artists/designers and I was really fortunate to chat with a bunch of ‘em. As you might have noticed, I’m the kind of person who usually has five or six different things going on at the same time. I like keeping busy that way. One of my latest projects is a blog titled Craft in the City. It showcases independent craft designers and artists, plus lots of nerdy stuff I come across online. Please check it out, if you have a moment to spare.
