During the Summer of 2018 I wanted to work on a big personal project. I wanted to sell my own art for a while already, so it was about time to make that dream come true. I wanted to create a collection and organize an event to sell items from that collection. The theme was upcycling, so I went to a lot of thrift stores to buy the materials to start with. We invested in a screen printing set and ordered some other items to help us with the progress.
We printed a lot of t-shirts, got some art prints and postcards printed (some came with an upcycled frame), we made our own sketchbooks and pins, drew on vintage pictures and more. You can see some studio vlogs on our Youtube Channel.
I wanted to make sure everything was as ecological as possible, even the packaging supplies were recycled.
I made flyers to spread the word.
We’ve put a lot of hard work in this project, but we liked doing it!
On the 15th of September our event took place in Lodejo, a youth center in Lochristi. It was a lot of fun and we sold a lot of items!
We hope to create more collections in the future.
