Welcome to the Surtex and Blueprint showcase. Right now (in my world) it’s all about SURTEX and BLUEPRINT. Not sure what I’m talking about? Here’s a brief explanation of the two shows and then we’ll get straight into the showcase.
SURTEX SHOW – May 15-17 – NYC
Surtex is a global B2B marketplace for sourcing art & design. This is where artists, artists agents, licensing agents and licensors all come together in one place to connect with manufacturer’s and retailers from all over the world.
BLUEPRINT SHOW – May 12-16 – NYC
Blueprint is considerably smaller in comparison to Surtex but no less important and is also pretty new on the scene. At Blueprint you’ll find a collection of under 30 studios and designers, giving it a more boutique feel.
– SHOWCASE –
What a beautiful line-up of art! How on earth those buyers at the shows decide on what to license and buy I don’t know. It really is like going into a candy store. I wish all those exhibiting in the shows the very best of luck and look forward to seeing their work out there in the stores.
So that’s it for this week. There’s been lots of reading this past week so I’ll leave you to play catch-up over the weekend before posting again next week. Don’t forget the Art Licensing Competition is still running and if you love to read the blog then please leave comments and join the newsletter and get FREE access to the library and other surprises just for my besties.
Bye for now..
