The Mayday! Underground Arts+Crafts Show is going to be held on....wait for it....Mayday (May 1), from 10 am to 6 pm.
It is going to feature some of the coolest artisans and craftspeople in the Rochester area. I have a lot of friends setting up from RNEST, and am looking forward to getting pumped up from all the creativity.
The venue is going to be this old warehouse type joint on 416 St. Paul Street. Here's a map to get there! It's going to be a cool vibe there with tons of crafts people and live music performances also.
Here's a coupon you can use to get $2 off any purchase over $20. Also, the first 30 lucky folks in the doors are going to get a sweet swag bag with stuff from the vendors. I'm carving a stamp of the "mohawk owl" logo that's getting printed on the bags.
This is going to kick a$$, hope all my dope friends can come!

Let me explain...
First I carved a background stamp that would be of the red wing covers of the ladybug. This stamp gets stamped first. Next, I carved a stamp that would be all the black parts of the ladybug, the spots, head, legs, etc. This stamp gets stamped on top of the first red stamp. Get it!
What an image it makes! So bright and vibrant! This ladybug is pretty basic.
Here is a link to some instructions if you every want to give it a try.
