What the heck is GarageFest you ask? Well, GarageFest was a free event in downtown Lynchburg this past weekend that was pretty much...um, awesome?
This entire event took place in a parking garage - with everything from live graffitti art, skateboarding, chainsaw art, and live music (my favorites were Jeff Carl and Tony Camm), as well as food/beer vendors, artists, classic cars, Harley Davidson, and some fire dancing. Yah, there was a lot.
I was really excited about having my art at this event because it was more of the "vibe" my art is geared toward - more funky than not. So I did some new smaller (aka, lower priced) pieces using my instagrams and photos of Lynchburg and other spots in Virginia, as well as adding some plaster dipped flowers to a few other pieces, and making some prints and cards of my illustrations. Overall, I was pretty pleased with the response. Here is a peek at my little parking spot and the new work:

And of course...Brent was there to write about the event for The Burg (and be my assistant!)
So happy to be a part of this type of event in Lynchburg! Good times...but now, I'm off to England!
