ULTA - Tattoo Parlor

Illustrators Needed for Drawn on Fake Tattoos

NYC Creative Agency, Harley & Co. is looking to hire local artists to draw on fake tattoos in their custom Tattoo Parlor activation at ULTA's Beauty 2018 Conference. We would work directly with artists to create the tattoo designs and a 'flash sheet' for guests to pick from at the event. 


The event is on April 5th, during the day 11am - 4pm and will be highly attended with beauty stakeholders and ~1500 guests. We'd have a sign up process for the tattoos so it won't get too crazy. We are looking for two artists max. We'd really love to collaborate with local artists to make this a very cool event.

Please email Ryan Casucci at ryan@harleyandcompany.com with work examples and contact information.

Vox Beer Summit II


Vox Culture will be opening the new year with a
special event to introduce it’s focus on tackling the topic of
environment in Houston. The advocacy organization will be hosting its
second annual
VOX Beer Summit at Eureka Heights Brew Co. the evening of Friday, February 9th from 6:30PM to 8:30PM. The event will be the formal opening for the organization’s 2018 theme addressing environment, called ‘Homegrown’.

The Vox Beer Summit will provide a chance for guests to meet Vox Culture's community partners for the year: Houstainable, Citizens’ Environmental Coalition, Air Alliance Houston, and the Sierra Club of Houston.
The organizations will present information to the audience pertaining
to their work, the current environmental challenges Houston faces and
what is or needs to be done, innovative solutions that can have a
positive impact on environment, and the push for a proper environmental
policy for the City of Houston. Guests will also have a chance to
network individually with the groups to inquire about their work, ask
environmentally related questions, and potentially sign up for future
volunteering or fundraising opportunities with these groups. Towards the
end of the presentations, guests will be welcome to come express and
talk about either the challenges or positives that they see in their
neighborhoods and/or Houston overall, on the subject of environment, and
voice what they would like to see done in Houston.

Beer selections from Eureka Heights will also be available for
purchase by guests. Other items such as soft drinks and water will also
be available while food will be offered for purchase by a food truck
onsite.

The goal behind ‘Homegrown’ throughout 2018 will be
to educate, raise awareness, fundraise, and develop creative social
action projects that address a variety of environment related issues
impacting Houston. Among the final aims of the year for Vox Culture will
be to present (1) how ideas presented by Houston artists can be
implemented to further raise awareness on environment, (2) how creative
solutions developed by local entrepreneurs and startups can be used to
address environmental issues.

Entry is free but limited. Please select and print your FREE ticket to RSVP!
