Good afternoon everyone,

And what a splendid Sunday afternoon it is! The weather is going to be nice for just a little bit longer and so be sure to go out and experience what it has to offer before it gets really frigid again!  (Which will be very soon by the way) : / I am once again writing a blog post in the midst of a jam packed semester back at school to discuss and review what was Flowered Concrete’s third and final event of the year. Last Sunday afternoon, Flowered Concrete, in affiliation with Drawing Realm, ( A Cartoonist/Illustration Media company by Alton Taylor) held an exhibit/auction of the many diverse works of Alton Taylor at the Kew Gardens Cinema Arts Festival. Passersby and fans of drawing and art in general were very interested in the artwork that Alton had on display. They also were exposed to the many different varieties of products that were in stock. There was no doubt that Alton did a fantastic job in setting up his table as he had over one hundred pieces of artwork scattered upon it. Many of them ranged from designs of Marvel/DC comics based characters, Bruce Lee drawings, while others were modern mainstream R&B musicians that were cleverly designed such as 2013’s summer anthem mastermind  Robin Thicke “Blurred Lines”  and Kaleidoscope dreamer/Grammy award-winning crooner “Adorn” Miguel. There were also limited editions of “Tales of the 23RD PRECINCT” and “The Serpent Samurai” either on display or on-sale.

Throughout the course of the entire afternoon, Alton’s artwork were also on sale ranging from different prices consisting of $1, 2, 5, 10 and 15 dollars. It was a sure delight to see festival goers  approaching the Flowered Concrete/Drawing Realm station in order to buy drawings or even just to check out the cool illustrations that Alton had conjured and worked so hard on, culminating towards the day’s event. What also surprised Alton and myself was that many of the people who visited the Flowered Concrete station (which was set up outside of Comic Den Bookstore) also took home many of our business cards (both Flowered Concrete & Drawing Realm). Besides the artwork for sale, Alton also provided a service called “Speed Drawing” where the customer would request a potential drawing of their choice (self-portrait, animals, comic book character) and Alton  would quickly illustrate the request in full penciling and ink in no less than five minutes. This happened to be the best feature of the evening as many bystanders eagerly awaited for Alton to draw something of their liking or just to simply take in the artist in action.

Overall, the event was a certified success as Flowered Concrete and Drawing Realm were exposed to a community of avid readers/writers/journalists/poets and personas in general. Being that it was our third and final event of the year, Alton and I were adamant in speaking about and portraying our brands as brands that will have a major cultural impact in the near future. As we head back to the drawing board for 2014 and the events that we will have in store, we hope that the next set of attractions from Flowered Concrete are ones that will live up or surpass all of the accomplishments that we attained in 2013. Like I’ve said before, as depressing as it is for me, this is certainly my last post for the remainder of the year, however, I will be back in late December just before new years to discuss the call-to-action and what we’ll have in store for next year.
