Surtex starts in about three weeks. It's always a hectic time getting ready and a crap shoot trying to decide what art to show on the booth walls. It's also stressful wondering what buyers and art directors will show to take a peek and if they are in the mood to talk about the new art and take some on with new licenses. Very difficult for the Artists as its the premiere show of the year. I dont think its a tell tale of any of their talent but it can make your year if you leave with a good feeling that the buyers liked something or better yet, the majority of it. The show is not only all business, but it's a good time for the Agents to share war stories of the past year and to catch up on personal lives. I always enjoy the visits no matter how short the time may be as many have become very good friends.
