For me, the highlight of Renegade LA was meeting Beebee, a very talented fan of UPPERCASE. I was humbled by how excited she was to see the UPPERCASE booth. It is so nice to meet readers in person, but I admit to being surprised at how young she is! Though not in our usual age demographic, in all other respects she is like our typical reader: talented, enthusiastic and generous.
Though in her early teens, Beebee is already a publisher! Her zine, Workshop, is 16 pages of exuberant appreciation of tape, confetti, pretty packaging and things kawaii. Thanks for giving me a copy, Beebee! I think you should be our tape correspondent for an upcoming issue.
Please visit Beebee's blog, Walk on the Wild Side, for excellent photos of her Renegade experience and enviable purchases. She has lots of interesting links about MT washi tape, heart-shaped bubble wrap and a preview of the cover of Workshop 2.
I've bookmarked Walk on the Wild Side and look forward to her perspective and posts.
