once again, i just wanted to give a quick update on what’s up on the bm front. (i hope you can get used to me using “bm” instead of “bobbi marbles”. it makes me laugh.) the spring octofair was a great success! it seems to get bigger and better every time, and this was definitely the best yet. i’ll admit, i didn’t know what to expect with the slight location change and the fact that the octofair would be held on mother’s day, but we were busy, busy, busy all day! we got to talk to a lot of cool people, and when we had time, we were able to check out all the other amazing vendors. in fact, i bought a gorgeous hand bound journal from shamuball, plus some heart-shaped turquoise earrings from chebeth. if you get a chance, check these ladies’ etsy stores out; they were so friendly, and their merchandise is as cool as can be.
with the spring octofair behind us, k and i are focusing our efforts on ACE. yes, ladies and gents, it is official; we will have a table set up at this year’s artist’s alley at the albuquerque comic expo from friday june, 21 – sunday june, 23! i can’t even tell you how excited (and somewhat nervous?) i am that bobbi marbles will be participating at ace.
in the very short five weeks leading up to june 21st, we are going to be designing, printing, sewing, tagging, and basically just preparing for the expo as much as possible. as touched upon briefly in our last post , k and i are constantly taking in all kinds of inspiration, which produce an abundance of ideas. but we don’t always turn that inspiration and those ideas into a concrete object. so these next five weeks are about focused work and dedication. don’t get me wrong, we haven’t been totally lame about production lately. we have a new shirt design that k has printed onto adult sized shirts, as well as on children’s sized shirts. but that’s for another post. check out our facebook and instagram feeds for more regularly updated bobbi marbles news and merchandise.
ok! so that “quick update” wasn’t exactly as brief as i had intended (sorry), but i think you can live with it, yeah? thanks. :)
