SOFA Chicago photos

This is my first time attending SOFA, and I am LOVING it! It’s great getting to see all this amazing work in person, instead of in the pages of a book or magazine…and on top of that, so many of the artists are here, in the booths or giving lectures, so I get to meet them. What an honor. Here’s just a few of the people I saw today–artists, gallery owners and attendees–as well as some of the work:

    Darn, I wish I had known you were there, Sally!

    Greetings from California! I’m bored at work so I decided to check out your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I love the info you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, awesome site!

    I am now not positive where you’re getting your information, however good topic. I must spend some time learning more or understanding more. Thanks for wonderful information I used to be on the lookout for this information for my mission.

    Having read this I thought it was very informative. I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this article together. I once again find myself spending way to much time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worth it!

    I do agree with all of the concepts you’ve presented in your post. They’re very convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are too quick for newbies. May you please lengthen them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.
