Next I went to a painting event at a mechanic's shop, EK Automotive. Yes, a mechanics. It was really great. There were cocktails and treats and painting pallets and it was all free. I had the nicest time and met nice people and the shop owner, chief mechanic, was a crafty carpenter as well. The body shop was turned into a painting studio. Guests gathered around tables covered in plastic sheets and we were given three colors and the image of the Chicago flag to paint on a pallet.
Next I submitted drawings to a t-shirt company, 500Level. It's a sports themed and artists can submit. If my design is chosen the design is put on a t-shirt and sold. My designs are about the Chicago Blackhawks. I submitted three designs.
I also made a submission to BucketFeet, which is in Chicago and if my design is chosen it will go on shoes; flip flops, canvas tennis shoes (like Keds) and high tops, but really mid tops. I submitted four designs, including one of the Blackhawks images above.
Fingers crossed, I hope one of my images is chosen.
