I know it's been awhile since I've posted. I've been really busy working on new artwork and a few other fun projects. One of the things I've been working on is some stationery concepts. I'm kind of obsessed with stationery and would love to get some of my artwork into that category! I thought it would be fun to incorporate my fabric from my "Modern Bliss" collection into some croquis illustrations. (for those of you who don't know what a croquis is, it's a fashion figure drawing)
I've only just started with this. I hope to do quite a few more.
I'm also trying to get ready for Surtex in May. I'm so excited (and super stressed) that I made the decision to show at Surtex in May in NYC. I have a TON of work to do to get ready for that, but I can't wait!
In addition to preparing for Surtex in May, I'm also working on sewing a bunch of samples for my first Trunk Show in April. If you're local to Columbus, Ohio you'll have to check it out. This really great shop in Clintonville, called Sew To Speak will be having a Andie Hanna trunk show!! Yay!!! How fun is that!? My mom and my very talented cousin Michelle will be helping me with all of the sewing and crafting. I will be sure to share some of the items here. Stay posted for official dates of the trunk show.
Lastly, another crazy cool project I've been working on, that is really different from my print & pattern and illustration, is a photo art piece for Houlihan's restaurants. Their new restaurants have a modern and somewhat edgy look and most of artwork in them is photos of graffiti and graffiti inspired artwork. I've had the amazing opportunity to create a very large, mural sized piece made up of photos that I took, pieces of lace, figure drawings and even little doodles that my 5 year old son did. I had an absolute blast creating it! The piece will be in 4 new locations: Kansas City, St. Louis, Rogers AK, and Upper Arlington, Ohio. The actual installation of the Upper Arlington piece is happening tomorrow, so I'll try and get some shots of that to share with you. (stay tuned) If you're local and want to check it out, the Houlihan's in Upper Arlington opens on February 25th. Here is a sneak peak. (this is only about half of it)
