Like many of you, we recently came home from the Surtex show in New York City. It is constantly amazing to me how two months of work can go by so quickly in those three days. First off, thank you to all of our friends and new friends that stopped by the booth to meet, to celebrate BaZooples 10th Birthday, to check out the debut of Barkly and Wagz, or just to see the newest art from the wonderfully talented team here at Artistic Designs Group.
I have to say how proud I am of all the new items that our artists produced for licensing this year. I had more than one moment when I looked around the booth and just smiled. Whether it was Carla’s Case of the Mondays that had most folks giggling, Joanne’s newest releases from her wonderfully successful Zenspirations line, Debra’s yummy new floral line, Michael’s eye-catching use of color from seascapes to Americana, Jenny’s always spot-on trend Indigo Coastal, or Annie’s Fresh Air, featuring fun loving, spunky birds flitting through a spring floral bed, I couldn’t be prouder. Joy introduced a new line this year called “Live the Life you Love” celebrating the strength and success of the mature woman. With so much new and promising work, who could blame me for smiling? We know what we think, please let us know what your thoughts about the new lines by dropping a comment.
