All week we’re revisiting some of our favorite art and craft vendors from last year’s inaugural Austin show for Renegade Craft Fair, and previewing some of the awesome new stuff they have to show this coming weekend. The list of featured artists includes lots of Etsy Austin team members, and this one is no exception. Next up in the series is Robo Roku, which will be sharing booth #161 with an equally fun new business called This Creative Life!
This will be Robo Roku‘s 5th RCF, and their 2nd Austin Renegade Craft Fair. Last year my kids and I walked away from their booth with some awesome notebooks that we’re still using. 🙂
The Austin-based business is the collaborative effort of designers Josh (Robo) and Renee (Roku), and was founded in 2006. Their RCF offerings this year will include some of the familiar character illustrations and products we love, as well as some exciting new items, including prints from their Tofu Who collection. Limited edition prints will be available of the last 2 Doctors, and you’ll be able to sign up for the Robo Roku mailing list while you’re there so you won’t miss the announcements when new Tofu Who characters are released!
Alongside the Robo Roku booth you’ll find This Creative Life, a solo endeavor wherein Renee makes uncommon art and illustrations. Available at RCF this year will be encaustic and acrylic paintings, screen-printed polo shirts, and accessories ranging from found object rings to original laser-etched wooden brooches and necklaces.
Here are a few examples of the cute, handmade goods you’ll find at the TCL booth:
In addition to the polo shirts, the mix tape design will also be available in a variety of colors on paintings. No shortage of fun, functional, creative items in this corner of the craft fair!
We can’t wait to see what other surprises Robo Roku and This Creative Life will have this weekend. Of course, there will be pics and info following the event (on the Jennifer Hearts Art public Facebook page), but you’ll have to check it out in person to get your hands on some cool of the craft goodies for sale. You can also follow @RoboRoku and @CreativeLifeATX on Twitter to get first dibs on announcements and event info.
