Max and I collaborated on a project for Castoro Cellars’ Beaverstock music festival in Templeton (Central Coast, California), and I’m so very excited on how it turned out. I made a bunch of postcards that we put on display in the artist lounge area. Festivalgoers could fill one out for free, place it in the mailbox, and then Max mailed all 300 of them out after the festival. It was a huge hit – I was out of postcards in the first few hours of the festival so had to restamp to resupply the booth. I made two versions: one a spinoff on the Tahoe state stamp I do, with the Castoro Beaverstock beaver with sunglasses marking the spot where Castoro Cellars is on the map; and the other a replica of the Castoro winery logo.
I also spent some good time creating a tumbleweed (from my postcard paper scraps) with my friend Brittney for our campsite, which had a saloon theme. A lot of heart and soul went into creating this little guy, who we leashed to our “covered wagon” tent so he wouldn’t tumble too far!
