Hot One Inch Action is an art show put on every year by Hot Art Wet City, an organization that promotes local artists in Vancouver and organizes various shows around town. Hot One Inch Action now happens in Vancouver, Portland, Seattle, and for the first time this year also NYC. This is the third year in a row I've attended the show, it's really fun as you (as an attendee) can take part by buying $5 bags of buttons and then trading to get the buttons you like best!
That's all great on its own, but... this year I had a button in the show! Not only is it my first time with a design in the show, but it's the first time I've ever entered a submission in any kind of art show! So many firsts!
