We had an incredibly long hiatus and are now back doing pop-up/art shows! Our friend, Pursuade Me asked us to vend at the October Pancakes & Booze art show at the Opera House, this past Friday. It was a super great turn out and it was amazing to meet so many new faces!
For those of you that aren't familiar with the Pancakes & Booze travelling tour, it takes place in Toronto twice a year. It features an incredibly array of artwork from participating artists, an unlimited amount of free pancakes, bar for drinks, a slew of DJs and musical talent, and this time around: a gruelsome-looking but creative group of models dressed and painted as zombies.
We even offered live drawings of sugar-skull portraits for guests on the spot! Here is Michael, getting his portrait done.
Here are some of our favourite picks of all the amazing artwork from the night:

One of the greatest advantages of working in the creative industry is coming into contact with the sheer amount of talent that you can work and collaborate with on projects. The digital age has definitely sealed the deal in helping us approach industry professionals and start-up gurus with a slick email conversation, direct message, tweet, or Instagram message.
Oftentimes we are caught under the impression that if we have an incredible roster of big-name talent helping and supporting our brand, that we will have made it - whatever that means.
Be careful and diligent in the beginning about whom you decide to bring into your brand as you want it to stay consistent and as authentic as possible throughout its lifetime.
First and foremost, are you working as a partnership or a sole proprietor?
What avenues are you currently using for yourself? Can you easily translate the platforms you already use towards your creative business?
Is your business reflective of your own personal brand? Can you keep this theme consistent throughout all the platforms you decide to use?
Creating a separate profile for your business is a helpful option, not to mention free - if the context of your business is different from your own personality and aura.
