The Flea is celebrating one year as your local plug for Tacoma art and style. To celebrate this milestone they are taking over the block with a multi location art fair of local artists and vendors. In addition to the humble store front on 6th Ave artists will be featured in Jazz Bones and Alley Cat and Scorpio Rising paired with your favorite local DJ’s to keep the vibe going into the night. I’ll be at Jazz Bones with my usual selection of oddities and arts along with some new products Ill be testing out on an unsuspecting audience. I’ve got a Baby Head tribute cup to the late MF DOOM for those that know also a new line of Decal Cups with familiar slogans of Tacoma. Mask up and come on out!
Fall is in the air and the Autumnal Equinox is around the corner, it must be harvest time. For me I have just finished a fresh batch of delicious pumpkins, and now it’s time to find loving homes for them. This years fall season is bound to be different. With the recent limitations of social interaction the on-line market place has become more important than ever. We are seeing new trends and creative ways of social interaction. Just as the incredibly popular app Tic Toc has revolutionized short format movie bits. Online shopping and food delivery has become an essential service. All of these elements existed before lock down yet now have matured and become integrated into our daily existence. Moving forward will require much creativity and growth from each of us. I spend a good portion of my day growing my online presence and streamlining my retail platforms. This is especially important coming into the fall retail season. So from now until October 31st I am offering free shipping on my Pumpkin Heads with the “shipfree” coupon on my Fulcrum Gallery site
I use an optic mold to create the vertical ribs in each design.
Everyone loves a big glamorous stem!
