We are working our way back to our #meetthemakermonday series & are thrilled to showcase the lovely & talented @coreycarbo_studio + her @shop_coreycarbo based in ATX. We've had the pleasure of meeting her at one of our ATX pop-ups, and absolutely looove her work!

More from the Maker:

First of all, we've always been a fan of your signature style! Your shop pieces + your client work makes us super happy! How long have you pursued Illustration & Design as a business of your own? // Well, thanks, really appreciate the kind words. I started freelancing under corey carbo studio pretty seriously back in 2015 while working as a graphic artist at Whole Foods market. I worked a pretty flexible schedule & it allowed me to take on fun projects outside of work within the community while growing my personal style as a graphic artist for the store. I continued to take on clients & evolve the studio over the years while keeping a part time or full time role. - I started my shop in 2018 - after years of dreaming up a line of my own - I finally decided I was going to go for it & so glad I did - it is a passion project that keeps me super joyful & enjoy everything about having it as part of my business model & canโ€™t wait to keep growing it in the coming years!

Artists like you are what make Austin, Austin! You literally create Austin experiences for people through your artwork! As an artist, how does that make you feel? And how much does the city inspire you? // Wow! Thatโ€™s a huge compliment - thank you - Austin is definitely a great place to be a creative - the community here is everything - everyone is very friendly, connected, encouraging, & supportive & it is a place that honors self expression & uniqueness & I think that is huge in developing your authentic self as an artist!

We love your shop's tropical flavor! Where does your inspo come from for your own brand? // Thanks! That is a great question - even though I have only lived in landlocked areas I have always been drawn to water, summer, the beach, & tropical landscapes since my first family vacation to a small beach town when I was young. Something about the smell of the ocean air, the breeze in your hair, & sand in your toes... that is my happy place - & letโ€™s talk about tiki/tropical esthetics ๐Ÿ˜. Iโ€™ve always been drawn to these things & places so when I decided to launch my shop back in 2018 - I decided to launch with that theme & continues to anchor the series I create. My goal is to one day live near the water & draw inspiration from the tropical landscapes.

How did you find your niche? // Sounds a bit cliche but it really just takes time, practice & carving out my own path a bit - which can feel scary - I think it will continue to evolve as I do. But feels good to have found a groove after years of exploration, & trial and error!

Your client base is mega impressive from Nike to Whole Foods, plus we love this: "hometown heroes, local non-profits, & solopreneurs chasing their lifelong dreams." What advice do you have for artists looking to work with these kind of brands? Itโ€™s all about connections - some of the clients mentioned weโ€™re through studios I worked at, companies I worked for & people that I met in the community which led to being referred to more like minded people. I find that in attracting the work you want, you have to put it out there and make it happen.

What's been the most challenging part of what you do? Good question - like most artists battling imposter syndrome & finding balance between work + life. Also just trying to keep up & be consistent to create a sustainable life. Itโ€™s a work in progress but getting better each year.

What's your fave thing about working w/ clients / favorite thing about creating artwork for @shop_coreycarbo? Clients: I love solving creative challenges & hearing the ideas that people bring me - itโ€™s fun collaborating to make something fun happen to meet a clients needs & visions. It also just feels so good to create something unique for someone who really resonates & appreciates what you have created for them. Itโ€™s a fun process that I value highly! Shop: It is fun to create without bounds & put ideas out into the world that you have in your head & see how people relate & resonate w/ them - itโ€™s fun to see people enjoying & connecting with the art like I do!

What are you looking forward to the most for this fall? Well besides the cozy weather & pumpkin everything - I really enjoy fall because my birthday falls in October so planning a trip to New Mexico & through west Texas, launching my new shop site on September 22nd via Shopify & getting some ideas in the works for a new series!

Our Story

We love local + handcrafted + entrepreneurs + artists & musicians + social media + community events + we have a special place in our hearts for the food trucks! - 2016

What is APPP?

A People Party Productions is a promotional business that exists to help small shops and creatives gain momentum and direction for their brand through meaningful connections. We create cross promotional and strategic marketing opportunities through fun customized events, social networking, and creative marketing services such as product photography and social media management. We specialize in our curated Maker + Creator market known as the People Party Craft Fair with over 50 vendors, artist, live music, and specialty booths. Our most recent event series is our qrtly mixer that was curated to bring Creatives together to be encouraged and inspired through hearing the stories of others. #peoplepartycraftfair #whereyoulive

Who is APPP?

APPP is Jen Harmel, co-founded by husband Forrest Harmel in 2013. Forrest coined the name at their first unofficial event when it was clearly a celebration of our friends and their creativity. Over the years Jen has continued to develop the APPP business brand and platform with a growing network of makers and small business creatives. Jen is also a momma of two to little Forrest Reign, 3, and Amora Joy who is now 8.

How did APPP get started?

A People Party Productions all started with a desire to generate a crowd and exposure for local musicians and artists.

Our first event started off as a live music event with some friends at a coffee shop in 2012. Naturally, the venue had a great turnout and we wanted to do it again! So we did! The next fall APPP invited local creators to join the fun with another lineup of local musicians. It felt like nothing less than a people party...production! It was the first official People Party Craft Fair and it was magical!

โ€œToday felt like walking through the streets of Santa Fe, only it was right here in Abilene, TX!โ€ - 2013 APPP Vendor

From this place, over 50 of our vendors have either launched their business, strengthened their brand, and/or have gained more exposure and experience as a vendor.
