I’m a vendor at San Jose Made 2022

 

Hey, if you’re in the South Bay, Central California, or the Bay Area please come to the 2022 San Jose Made Holiday Fair. This will be my third year either attending and/or vending at the event and I invite you to come shop, meet artists, eat, hang out, and play. There will be over 400 vendors selling clothing, art, household items, toys, pottery, sculpture, books, and more. They even had a photo booth and free gifts for the first 500 attendees each day. I’ll be there at booth G20 selling kids books, art prints, stickers, and more. 
San Jose Made is a crew of artists and entrepreneurs who support small businesses and local artists through yearly fairs, markets, pop ups, and storefront events in the San Jose and Santa Clara area.  Please visit their website and follow them on Instagram.
Check out some photos from last year. My wifey helped me set up:)

Video: Macla “Beyond the Diaspora” show

 

Yo, this is a video of the artwork up at the Macla gallery in San Jose California if you would like to see. The show was about highlighting Afro Latinxs of many types and the artists who participated are: DJ Leydis (Cuba), Los Rakas (Panama), Anna Lisa Escobedo, Breena Nuñez (Guatemala), Vanessa Wallace, Thomas Jones, Diamela Fernandez, and Patricia Encarnacion. 

If you would like to see a virtual panel discussion featuring some of the artists from the show tune in February 23rd at 6pm. Go to MACLA for more details.

My work was from several Inktober drawings I made of Latinx and AfroLatinx people (artists, activists, atheletes) and two spreads from “Alejandria Fights Back”!

This is the previous post I made about the show.

San Jose Craft Holiday Fair – Nov 26-28, 2021

 

I’ll be vending at @sjmade’s holiday craft fair this year y’all. It’s the largest winter holiday craft fair in the South Bay Area and this year’s three full days from Black Friday (Nov. 26) through Small Business Saturday (Nov. 27) and ending on Sunday, Nov. 28. Know anyone who’d want to go? Tag em here or follow SJMade.
The event features over 350+ amazing makers, artists, designers, curators, workshops, food producers and creative small businesses. I’ve been to two of their events as a visitor and its always a good mix of people and makers. Why come to a craft fair? Gifts and goodies you can’t often get at a chain or corporate store! If you’re a maker there is also lots of inspiration. So mask up and come through! 
Free to get in. Santa Clara Convention Center – 5001 Great America Parkway, Santa Clara, CA 95054.  Friday Nov. 26 (12 pm to 6 pm), Saturday Nov. 27 (11 am to 6 pm) and Sunday (11 am to 5 pm). More info at sanjosemade.com/pages/holiday-fair-2021.
This video is pre-pandemic, but posting it so you can get a vibe.
