New art Thursday…on a Friday!

Thank you for coming to see us and support local art at Phoenix Fan Fest this past weekend! We had a gas! We met so many cool folks! I swear, it seems that every time we do an event, we meet the some of the best people. We really love talking about art and what makes people interested in what we do.

If you signed up for our mailing list, either online, or at the event don’t forget to use your coupon code here!

We’re in the process of setting up a youtube channel. We’ll be posting videos of works in progress, finished pieces along with event footage. You can check out our first finished piece video here.

We just listed this new box on Etsy. Our plan is to list a new box every week, so stay tuned!

We’ve got lots of shows booked for the rest of 2017 (a new date for December) and we’re booking many more into 2018!

More dates and events TBA!

Making some changes…..

Good Morning!

We’ve been really busy updating our Etsy site: adding new pieces and photos! Next up is a website update! Spiffy new photos and pieces along with announcements for upcoming shows!

First up: GameOnExpo August 11th-13th at the Phoenix Convention Center, South Building 33 S. 3rd St.

Come see us and keep checking back for new updates and pieces!

Cheers!

 

Are you bothered?

When one works for themselves, you look to those who came before you.

There are lots of artists that offer us inspiration.

The ones who succeed, we take what they have learned and try to apply those lessons to what we are doing. The ones who aren’t, well, we take that experience and tuck it away to remember and also remember a good idea, poorly done, is just as bad.

There is so much to juggle. Not only making the art you want to sell, but also the booking of shows, the advertising, marketing, promotions, blogging, emails, etc.

We’ve been doing this full time for about two years now. We’re still trying to get a schedule and routine down.

It’s not an easy thing.

The show part, we’ve got down pat. The rest of it, well, we have a few hang ups.

First of which is the mentality of “Oh, I don’t want to bother people with that post, photo, email…”

We also realize if we want to succeed at an online business as well as an in person one, we have to get over that.

Our customers have to know where we’re going to be and what new things we’re doing. We have to keep them interested so they will come to us.

We’re learning that is where advertising and marketing come in.

My rational mind knows this. The not so rational part…not so much.

I see other maker run businesses that we follow; I wait (sometimes not so patiently) for their next FB post, or to see the newest thing they’re working on via an IG post. Or, during the morning email check, I see the new sculpture, photo, painting, doodle, or whatever and damn it, I’m so happy to see it!

Then I think, maybe other people might be doing the same thing I am and are eagerly awaiting the new WeeGonza Bazaar post. It could happen.

Good wishes, much love, much happiness, and look for us much, much more.
