There were some painters like myself there as well, which I was glad to see. I had a good spot on the floor and the booth 6 feet wide with pipe and drape. I brought my new set up that I’ve been using lately. Let me tell you, trying to make everything fit on a 6ft table is not easy.
The key is to make use of as much vertical space as you can. This particular set up is a little busy, but I had a lot of stuff to show and sell. (All of which is available at my website: www.BaxaArt.com, except the animal skulls).
Son of Monsterpalooza is the second show each year, and is a bit less attended than Monsterpalooza proper for some reason even though it is just before Halloween. But I had a great time and I think the fan base at this show really responded well to my dark work. I want to keep doing more creepy stuff and this was a great place to show it.
My booth was close to a stage set up by a make-up company and they were doing make-up demos all day long. Awesome to watch. Those poor actors though, they’re sitting in that chair for 4-6 hours! Brutal. The results are really cool though. Here’s some photos from the show for you to enjoy!
Btw, I already have my space for Monsterpalooza March 28 - 30, 2014. Stay tuned for more details as the date approaches. -- Tom
