the blonde creative hits the road this weekend! watch out knoxville!

a creative venture of blonde photo.
bringing blondes together. inspiring people of every hair color.
i couldn’t be more excited to share the most awesome news with everyone – the blonde creative is here! hooray!
the blonde creative was an idea i came up with forever ago to help promote the amazing artists that i know, as well as the people and ideas that inspire me. i wanted to create a virtual collection of amazing talent that i could share with anyone who wants to be inspired. beyond this simple idea for essentially a collective art blog, i knew i wanted it to be an umbrella organization that could connect people – a place for aspiring artists to find mentors, for working artists to collaborate with other artists across all mediums, and for potential clients to seek out photographers, designers, and more! it’s very much a project, not a company – it’s an organic, non-profit creative group that seeks to help artists and benefit all. as it grows it will be a fantastic resource for promoting art appreciation for everyone it reaches. what could be better?
however, i’m getting ahead of myself. right now the blonde creative is a brand new venture – still mostly a concept that will function as an art blog maintained by me, with the help and input of my favorite artist friends. as it grows i hope it will become a source of daily inspiration and a fantastic resource for art lovers + makers alike! furthermore, i plan on debuting the blonde creative at this year’s honfest (see previous post honfest 2009!) where key members of the blonde creative will be representing this new art initiative!
most importantly, the blonde creative would still be one of the many fanciful ideas swimming around in my head if it wasn’t for my amazing friend and blonde cohort quinn peyser who gave the blonde creative its killer logo, brand new blog, and facebook fan page! even more, she convinced me to start twittering! so now you can follow the blonde creative tweets!
and here’s a little blurb from the site – i’m sure most of you will recognize the names of the initial members!
the blonde creative is a project initiated by blonde photo that aims to promote + share amazing creative talent across all mediums of art. focusing on, but not limited to, photography + design, the blonde creative will showcase individuals who are creating unique + fabulous work.

hey hons! blonde photo is back…with friends!
i am so excited to announce the public launch of my newest project the blonde creative at honfest 2009!
honfest is an amazing festival that takes place on the streets of hampden – one of the most fabulous neighborhoods in baltimore! hampden is home to tons of inspiring artists + characters, and lots of just plain good people. the annual honfest is much more than a local tradition – it is truly an international craze! the classic baltimore (bawl-mer) term of endearment, hon (short for honey), is at the root of this exuberant celebration that honors the honest, hard-working, fun-loving women of baltimore. yeah hons!
last year i was the official photographer for honfest – resulting in two full days of awesome hontastic images! i had a blast capturing the action on the street, the countless musicians that performed on both stages, and the main stage events, including a little miss hon contest, the crowing of the 2008 hon, and even a hon wedding!
this year i plan to bring even more energy + excitement to the festival with an amazing booth for the blonde creative! the booth will feature some of my favorite artists + best friends who will be joining me over the two day festival – quinn peyser of quinnep doodles, jessi ringer of 5ringsphoto and mk mckenna of mary kate mckenna photography! in addition to all sorts of surprises + fun, there will be raffles + giveaways, and a super-fun photo booth to capture the hon in everyone! in fact, there may even be a lifesize hon doodle in the works from quinnep doodles…i can’t wait! *PLUS* mamasita will be there again this year along with a number of other guests + friends, so mark your calendars for the weekend of june 13-14 and get up to bawlmer, hon!!
