It's finally open! Months in the planning with only days to execute, I'm so excited to invite you all to my very first Pop-Up Shop. Step into the imaginative world of Le Petit Elefant as I take over a small part of

Westfield Valley Fair

 in conjunction with Pop-Ups by 

SJ Made

. The #LPESummerShop features new art prints, stationery, rubber stamps, stickers, mason jars, and more!

Designed by me and produced by San Jose vendor 

Jiminy Stitch It

, I have "Shop Local. Shop Love" Clink tote bags EXCLUSIVE to the #LPESummerShop. I'll be giving away tote bags to the first 10 customers who spend over $25 both this Saturday & Sunday (August 2 & 3). Get 'em while you can! At the end of the month, I'll put the remaining for sale online.

Preparing for & opening the pop-up was probably one of the toughest challenges I've had as a small business owner, and this wall is the element I'm most proud of. Come by the shop, take a picture in front of it (or anywhere in the shop), tag me on Instagram (

 , #LPESummerShop) and you'll get 10% off. Weeeee!!

OK everyone, thanks for reading and visiting! I hope you'll come to the shop. This moment is huge for me, and I'm so thankful you're all here to share this crazy adventure.

"INFINITESIMAL TO INFINITE" Solo Show

Fairs Shows & Pop-UpsgenevieveComment

I'm coming to Houston everyone!! The land of BBQ, NASA and a wonderful museum district. 

I met Leila & her husband, the owners of Space Montrose, a little over a year ago at Renegade Craft Fair Austin. Leila, like many of her shop's patrons, is a geek at heart, and I thought it would be perfect to bring my illustrated explorations of space to her shop for a art exhibition. Won't you join us? It's the first exhibition in their new location, and the opening happens to fall on the summer solstice. So there's lots to celebrate!

I'll be sharing illustrations of intergalactic adventures, nostalgic & nerdy nods, and starry explorations so it'll be a good time. Also come and share your favorite eateries! Kevin and I are dying for good BBQ :)

Supahcute Science Fair opens this Saturday!

Fairs Shows & Pop-Upsgenevieve2 Comments

I'm super excited to be a part of the

Supahcute Science Fair

at

Leanna Lin's Wonderland

because one, it's an amazing roster of talented artist, and two, SCIENCE!! Little known fact: I was a biology major during my freshman year at USC. Weird, right? I totally wanted to work in the sciences and be a geek in a lab, etc, but the calling for art was stronger. So this combines my two great loves. I hope you can attend!

If not, you can view the art online very soon. I'll post a link when ready.

 UPDATE: Here's the

link

to view & purchase the art. All my pieces sold (yipeee!!) but there are some really amazing ones still left!!

Huzzah for Square Market!!

WebshopgenevieveComment

If you're a small business owner or a frequenter of craft fairs and small, local businesses, you've probably noticed a little white credit card reader plugged into ipads and smart phones giving practically anyone the ability to take credit card transactions. What is it? Why... it's

SQUARE!

It's brilliant and has certainly made my life as a small business owner less stressful. I even keep one on my person just in case (it's come in handy for on the spot illustration transactions). And you can

request one for free

, or snag one at the info booth at most Renegade Craft Fairs. They're usually there repping.

Perhaps not as well known is the

Square Market

. Think of it as another version of Etsy but without the facade of being all "handmade" (quotations around handmade because I've been seeing more and more mass-produced items on there and it's watering down the quality of Etsy, but that's another topic). It's marketplace to find small businesses, and it's absolutely wonderful. They've been putting together gift guides as well, and I had the great fortune of being featured on their latest two. If you haven't browsed through Square Market, you're in for a treat. Make sure you set a budget for yourself though! ;).
