Renegade Austin was a blast! We are so thankful to everyone who came out to see Satchel & Sage. The best part about participating in Renegade is the people. We met so many inspiring artists, and enjoyed meeting and greeting the Austin community. We would also like to thank the Renegade gang; they are such an awesome group of folks y’all. Check out our studio tour with them on the Renegade blog. See you at Renegade San Francisco: July 27-28!

Gerren and I recently closed down shop and went on a vacation of a lifetime. We traveled to Italy and France. Here are some pics of our adventures in Italy.
- We rented apartments for most of our trip through HomeAway and AirBnB. I highly recommend it! It was fun to live like a local, visit the market and cook our own food once in a while.
- Gelato! It’s homemade and in abundance.
- Piazza Navona, it’s a beautiful square filled with local artists, live music and great cafes.
- Boboli Gardens: Lush gardens you can get lost in. Perfect for a romantic stroll and views of the countryside.
- Museo Galileo: This is an eclectic museum filled with gadgets and gizmos a plenty (globes, clocks, telescopes, star charts). If you are into steampunk and astronomy, it’s a must see!
- Piazza Michelangelo: A hilltop terrace overlooking the city. Be sure to explore the charming neighborhood below.
Cinque Terre Highlights:
- The Food: Pasta frutti di mare (fresh seafood and pasta)! The best I’ve ever had. Ask for a glass of the local wine, as each village makes their own.
- The beach: Even in October it was warm enough to swim. Monterosso has the best beach and boardwalk, perfect for snorkeling or people watching.
- The Views: Corniglia sits on top of a hill and has magnificent views of the coastline. Be prepared for a strenuous uphill hike to reach it.
