May is kind of a big month in Silicon Valley's independent art scene because it is the month of Silicon Valley Open Studios and the beginning of art festival season in California. It is also my first time participating in the event or any public art festival, and the experience has been very rewarding. I was pretty nervous going into the open studios since I have never had crowds of complete strangers going through my body of work and giving me feedback real time. The result turned out to be better than anything I could have anticipated, and the Patreon supported artworks are the stars of the whole event! Thanks to all of my friends and the visitors, I have never felt more grounded my art career. You guys have made all the difference, and now I am more confident than ever that I can continue to create art to make a living for ever and ever. Muah! - Rebex
