SF Renegade Craft Fair: This is my Comic-Con

by tatiana on August 1, 2010

Last week, hundreds of thousands of comic book geeks traveled far and wide to Comic-Con to meet their respective idols. This past weekend hundreds of craft and DIY geeks traveled far and wide (or maybe like 2 miles if you’re me) to SF Renegade Craft Fair to meet some of the best crafters and artists in the DIY scene.

One of the highlights of our little quest was meeting Elsie of Red Velvet Art. She’s an incredibly inspiring crafter and artist and I was so excited to meet her. She was really nice in person, which is always great.

Aside from meeting and greeting, I picked up some great prints:

Russian Doll by Regan Smith Clarke

Elizabeth I by Caitlin Kuhwald

I also picked up a great Andrew Bird poster for the mister by Hero Design Studio but I forgot to photograph it before I gave it to him… fortunately I found an image of it on their site. All in all, it was a great day at Renegade SF! I can’t wait for the next one.

You bought some great prints! I was loving the silkscreens that looked very washed and vintage…can’t remember the designer now.

Thanks! And I think I know which ones you’re talking about… they were photo collaged with vintage ladies and bicycles and things? I loooooved those. Maybe I’ll pick one up at the next show (if they’re here).
