I spent last week doing loads of Marketing and PR for the F + A Gallery, connecting with what appears to be some of the most influential bloggers in fashion, style and home decor both here in the States and across the pond. And if they aren’t, they certainly should be. These sites are gorgeous! Stunningly beautiful imagery. Sophisticated. Tasteful. Clever. Funny. Of course I bopped around adding my two cents here and there because that’s just me. I love the interaction. But the biggest thrill is when the blogger/designer from a site I admire responds by clicking onto F + A, sees samples here of the art that will soon be available for purchase and actually leaves a comment expressing their excitement and eagerness to see more. I’m a grinning fool, ear-to-ear, blinding them in North Carolina. Portland. The Netherlands even. I’m telling you, when comments come in from far away places, from those who possess such marvelous taste and know the good stuff when they see it, well…it certainly blows MY skirt up.
This piece was created using Adobe Illustrator. A stubborn traditionalist, I vowed to never ever abandon my drawing table for the lure of a computer program but who could resist the crisp lines of vector graphics? Certainly not me. I was a goner from day one and there will be a collection of digital art included in the gallery. I think you’re going to have as much fun selecting from this group as I had putting it together.
