2021 East Austin Cutie-o Tour Creators

East Austin Cutie-o Tour is bringing over 30 individual creators to the Dear Diary Coffeehouse patio for the 2021 Austin Studio Tour. My biggest goal for this show was to give as many people as I possibly could a platform to sell their artwork and increase their brand awareness.

One of the best ways to do that is making sure each of them is fully recognized in an easy-to-reference creator guide. That way if someday, years down the line, you see them on the cover of some world-renowned magazine, you can come here and think about the time you met them at the first big Creative Cuties showcase.
