Blog You're Happy / UPPERCASE covers Surtex 2012

The lovely and intrepid ladies, Alanna Cavanagh and Shelley Brown reported on Surtex for UPPERCASE Journal this year. Here’s a sample of their great coverage.

This is a thorough overview from Shelley about Surtex and the business of art licensing. Shelley attended all the conferences, quite a feat! Read about it here.

An interview with Lilla Rogers, one of our favourite exhibitors at the show. Their booth always stands out to us for the incredible images from her talented roster of artists.

An interview with one of our heroes, Helen Dardik!

Frank Sturges and a sample of his artists at the show.

Last but not least, we’re thrilled to be one of the exhibitors they featured. Thank you Alanna, Shelley and UPPERCASE!

For those unfamiliar with UPPERCASE, they publish magazines and books for the creative and curious. Some of their titles include A Collection a Day and The Shatner Show, the latter which Kyle and I were honoured to be included. Uppercase Magazine is also one of the most beautiful and thoughtfully designed magazines. We are always amazed at the content and presentation in each issue. Look for an issue at your local book store or subscribe today!

Sorry You're Happy is an art licensing & surface design studio made up of husband and wife illustrators Kyle Reed and Jen Hsieh.
