I’ve had the pleasure to work with Erin Kuykendall for over a year now; she’s not only fun to be around, but also, a creative, outspoken, proactive soul filled with contagious energy to fight the good causes with you.
Erin is the editor in chief for The Audacity, a local publication composed of artists, activists, and storytellers, that has inspired me and many others to see things differently and taking a stand.
The Audacity team will be on site promoting their zine and also bringing artist Vero Caceres to our lovely Studio #95.
Come say hi, meet Erin and her team of trendsetters, have a drink with them and toast for a more beautiful world in the making.
More info about the studio here.
Guess what?! Our old friend and partner Carlos Olvera, aka Vegan Cannibal will have some of his Art at The Projecto’s Studio #95 too!
We’ll have a few remaining prints of the old favorites “Mugrero” and “Guapo” + 4 amazing pieces on fabric that he showed last August at the Yellow Jacket Social Club.
Come, enjoy Art, food and drinks at The Projecto Studio #95; Remember, 2 locations: one, near MLK Jr & E 17th St. the other one in E 3rd St. & Atayac 😉
I’ve known artist Clint Roth for a few years now; A super creative, fun person to be around. One of those people that kind of can’t help it but create, he’s constantly collaborating, painting, making music, building, you name it… Even though, he’s based here in Austin Tx. we don’t get to enjoy his art too often, and we’re solving that!
He started doing art a few years ago, while he was designing the album art for his band, Big Jaw… “It started me on a track of trying to find a way to make compelling pieces in the simplest terms by using symbols from nature and pop culture and combining these symbols with basic elements of design and a limited color palette. At most, I hope my work would evoke a story or a feeling or even just a question in the viewer’s mind. At least, I hope it’s fun to look at.”
A crowd pleaser for sure; Last year he was one of the artists that had more traffic at our studio, so you’ll see 😉
We’ll have his art in both studios November 18th & 19th, so make sure to take some time in your day to see it and enjoy a drink or two too!
As you may know by now, Lou is one of my favourite people in the world. Not only he’s super creative, but he loves sharing his ideas and art to the world, and that is something not everyone is willing to do… He shares his passion towards Art as a Professor, avid Instagrammer, traveller, and of course Artist and Architect.
“Humor and melancholy are an essential part of his composition. Earthy textures, exaggerated expressions, horns, wings and fangs resemble creatures from the mythological world… I guess these creatures are in some way the physical manifestation of my emotions, my madness and joy”.
Come and meet him this November 18th & 19th at the East Austin Studio Tour #95, you’ll be delighted, I swear 😉
I’m a big fan of people who have strong opinions, take action and are open to learning and growth. These are some of the reasons why I love Nina and Regine from collective blue.
I started working with them almost a year ago, when they first started, by the way, today it’s their 1st anniversary (YAYYY!!!!). They’re having a fun party tonight, you can still get tickets here.
Anyway, I’m ecstatic to work with people like them, committed to being an active part of their community and helping everyone anyway they can, to be better and have a bigger chance in the creative scene.
At Studio 95, they’re taking part in coordination (Thank GOD!), and they’ll be present at the event promoting their brand and creatives, so you’ll get another chance to meet them and enjoy their cool vibes. If you’re lucky/smart you might even be able to talk business with them and accept the enormous challenge of walking by their side creating something new for all of us to enjoy.
Oh before I forget, Nina’s catering company, “Lemongrass” will be present at the 2nd venue, so come hungry! You have no idea the delights you’re going to experience 😉
Cheers n’ love peeps!
EAST season is upon us and here at The Projecto, we’re excited and ready to tell you about the 2 events that we’ll be hosting this year 😀
First of all, we partnered with collective blue & The Audacity to make a better, bigger event; in both cases, I knew the women involved with the organizations and felt they were amazing leaders and creatives that did an effort to open a door to communication and diversity; Since we’re all about that too, I decided to reach out and luckily they were happy to participate in our events…
Also, this year we’ll be having 2 venues, YAYYY!!!! (See!? Bigger + better)
1.- The official one, November 18th at 1610 Harvey St. from 11 AM to 6 PM &
2.- November 18th & 19th at 1303 3rd St. both days from 11 AM to 6 PM.
Our studio is #95 that’s how you can find us on the catalog 😉
Like last year, through posts, I’ll be telling you more about collective blue, The Audacity, our lovely sponsors and the artists participating, that way you can get as pumped up as we are!
Thanks for reading, Anahi, Alfredo and I are super happy we get to share with you what we’ve been doing, hopefully, we’ll see you in less than a month!!!
Hace mucho que no escribo, casi un mes. Febrero tuvo sucesos que me drenaron tanto emocional como mentalmente y ni hablar de tiempo…
Estos sucesos fueron importantes, y para los que aun estamos vivos, renovadores.
Dentro de estos cierres y aperturas de ciclos, empezé a colaborar con una firma local (Austin, Tx) de management, lo que me tiene super contenta, atenta, llena de miedos y alegrías. Mas lo bueno que lo malo definitivamente 🙂
También tuve la oportunidad de rodearme de emprendedores y absorber información y experiencias increíbles; De ahi, salieron nuevas perspectivas y planes de acción para The Projecto, tanto así que renovamos imagen y estamos super contentos por ello; una de mis diseñadoras favoritas, Karen Mata, armo este logo que no solo representa nuestra mision y visión, sino que siento me representa a mi totalmente, los que me conocen bien estarán de acuerdo…
Anyway, seguimos aprendiendo, descirniendo, creciendo y “The sky is the Limit” I guess 😉
Ah si, y decidí que es buena idea escribir en el idioma que me fluya cuando me toque postear jajaja ;P
This 2016 was very important in our little bubble; we worked a lot, we grew, we walked by your side, we fell in love with our profession again.
Thank you for being part of it, for the support and constructive criticism; we heard you and we’re on our way to make this new year better.
We love you like you have no idea, thank you for being there, we’re certainly here for you too!
Have an awesome night, and a better morning, lets do this!
