Vicky Yorke has been really busy recently developing lots of new designs to be shown via her agents, Jewel Branding & Licensing at Surtex (Booth 2917) in New York and Licensing Expo (Booth H94) in Las Vegas at the end of May. Vicky is currently lucky enough to have designs licensed across homeware / giftware and technology cases with more products due to be released later in the year. For the upcoming shows she has added new designs covering surface pattern design, illustration and typography in my bright and whimsical style. Themes include animals, florals, coastal prints and designs inspired by travel, as well as Christmas and other seasonal designs. Anyone interested in licensing Vicky's designs can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jewel Branding (email@example.com) for more information. In addition to licensing she is also available for commissions and collaborations.

The members of Pencil Parade, have never met in person but they have experienced the closeness of regular friendships since early 2015 and support each other in their art making. After being together since taking Make Art that Sells courses two years ago, designers Katherine Lenius, Betsy Siber, Megan Dunagan, and Brooke Glaser have crafted pattern and design portfolios that they are extremely proud of. In May, they're taking a very scary, exciting, and intentional step of exhibiting at their first trade show, Blue Print in New York - and importantly, they'll be able to get together in person. While they are looking forward to a successful show, they're also excited that art brought them together as friends from across the US and Australia. Here we have some flyers and showpieces but please visit Pencil Parade online to see more.
