Oh, Mr. Mullan, you will be the end of me. Financially, that is.

Although I wasn’t able to buy one of his birds this year, I’m more in love with them than ever and I’m sure I’ll be spending every spare penny on them throughout the future years.

I’m going to split this into at least two posts because I have SO MANY PICTURES and I don’t want to drown anyone with their overflowing abundance.

Jim Mullan

This is Jim Mullan. One of the great things about him is that he lets me take as many pictures of his work as I want – that is RARE. He’s also friendly, down to earth, and seems to genuinely like to talk to people about his work – this is even more rare.

A lot of artists ooze pretension and have their noses permanently raised in the air. I’ve been snubbed more that once and ignored even more.

Luckily, Jim is the opposite, and quite a few of the artists this year were more than happy to answer my questions and give me one of their cards (which tend to be guarded and held as precious jewels at such a huge festival with thousands of people snatching them up).

I REALLY wanted this guy on the globe

Along with the birds, Jim creates fantastic little pins, earrings, necklaces, and trinket boxes.
