On September 28th (yes I do realize that is over a month ago, you can thank college for kicking my ass) my good friend Brooke and I went to the arts and crafts fair, Crafty Bastards located in Union Market in Washington DC. Its a huge fair, over three tents, that features artists (or craftsmen?) from all around the United States who are selling their work. The variety was unbelievable- jewelry, ceramics, illustrations, and apparel- just to name a few. Besides the enormous amount of business cards I collected from just about every stand I visited, I also became completely inspired.
My favorite artist was Nate Duval. He's an illustrator who has done incredible work for a variety of clients including posters for Dave Matthews Band and The Lumineers. You can check him out here:
Its also a great place to buy holiday presents!
