The Posters Are Making Their Debut...


After a short meeting with Andrew, the executive director of Tsunami on the Square 2010 last evening, I happily left with a stack of posters in my hot little hands.

These posters were designed by Ms. Dina...and we all remember her and her fabulousness!  She certainly did not disappoint this time.  I have to admit, being on the board of Tsunami on the Square means that I actually have been looking at various forms of this design for a while now, and I've been impressed all along.  I would like to say I had more of a hand in the design, but all I did was open my yap about being on the board and Dina just wanted to jump right in with her talents!

(it's so nice to be connected)

This year for The Little Wave That Could, Andrew wanted to introduce a more comic book/pulp-fiction theme, which I think was greatly captured here and will be repeated on T-Shirts and Programs...I am very very excited for those to come out as well!

I am proud to say that Snap! Snap! was the very first business in town to receive a poster this year (mostly because we met up the street, so I popped one in my window last night.  I don't usually pop anything in the window, so this was a BIG deal for me...things usually go up on my community board instead)  and is being quickly followed by people holding their hands out for this particular piece of art.

Honestly, after fundraising?  There's nothing like being welcomed with a big smile and excitement when you walk into a business to hand them one of these posters.  Tsunami is a favorite event with a lot of business owners downtown.

The event itself brings about 7,000 people into the area for the day and these people love to wander in and out of the shops and restaurants...Not to mention that the festival itself is a full day of amazing performances...and I am happy to say that we have had an extraordinary amount of local support this year...

Which makes me very happy to be a part of this amazing little community...and exactly why I proudly hang my Tsunami poster in the window of my shop.

I love my Tsunami!
