UICA's 22nd Annual Holiday Artists' Market is right around the corner and we asked the artists a few questions about their products for the market. Below Lindsay Jones and Jeffrey Kraus, of Small Craft, answered our questions.

Tell us a little about yourselves.

Small Craft is a newly formed collaborative featuring graphic designer Lindsay Jones and printmaker Jeffrey Kraus. The two met in 2008 through a screen printing class offered by the UICA. They decided to start Small Craft in effort to create affordable fine art prints and hand-made domestic goods. "We see the Holiday Artists' Market as the perfect opportunity to introduce ourselves to the local artisan community."

What kind of products will you be selling at Holiday Artists' Market?
Pillows, prints, jewelry, animal posters, paintings, greeting card sets, and a 2011 calendar.

What is your process for creating these products?
Our process begins with a lot of sketching and looking around for inspiration. A lot of that comes from contemporary art, pop culture, travel, and nature. We pitch our ideas to each other and narrow things down into concepts, materials, and colors we are both excited about printing.

You will be able to purchase Small Craft's products at UICA's Holiday Artists' Market on December 3, from 5–9 PM, and December 4, from 10 AM–5 PM.
