Fashion's Night Out with Saks & Crayola!
I just got a big box of goodies from Crayola today! They contacted me a few weeks ago about doing a project with them and Saks Fifth Avenue. Of course I did a happy little dance and promptly accepted the invitation!
I will be doing a crayon carving demo at Saks Fifth Avenue on September 6th for Fashion's Night Out 2012!!! This will be a super fun event for everyone sponsored by the wonderful peeps at Crayola. Besides for myself, Mr. Herb Williams will be there to construct a giant Crayola sculpture. There will also be a interactive, life-size paint by number and airbrush graffiti wall! Hope to see you there, please come by and say hi, don't be shy. :)

Thursday, September 6th, 6-10pm
*I'm scheduled to be on the 6th floor. I will keep this updated if there's a change in location within Saks.
I've set up a UStream channel w/ live feed from Saks for those of you who can't be there but want to check out the action:
It will go live between 6-9pm EST on 9/6/12.
I will have a selection of carved crayons on display. The Crayola lab has given me a few GIANT crayons to work with! These are big! Here's a shot with Guy for comparison. I'm excited to work with these special crayons. I'm not sure if they'll make these for the retail market, but I think it'd be fun to have a huge box of crayons in your playroom. Watch out sidewalk chalk, you have some new competition in town!
A test carving of a big 2 pound crayon. I'm thinking of using textile design an patterns from various cultures for each crayon. I will have 5 of these large crayons on display as well as some of my regular sized crayon carvings.
