I apologize for the slight delay in posting . I am on day 3 of a headache.
I have a wonderful, adventurous idea!
I want to create a book!
A book inspired by a beloved fantasy novel character, that has been known and loved for over 100 years.
Each Artist, along with myself, would submit their artwork along with an answer to a question asked of all the participating Artists.
This juicy sought after book would be available on Amazon.
Think about it! Wouldn’t this be FABULOUS!
Now, the question is…….can this legally be done?
(this idea has been posted and filed by Nicci Battilana of Duran Designs Inc. on 08 March 2015)
I have recently had the great pleasure and challenge of bringing Mr Eward Wirtz to life through my art. As many of you know, drawing, creating, sketching the male face is not my forte….so to speak….lol.
Usually when I attempt to draw a male character they end up with very feminine features. It has taken two months of practice, but I believe the final outcome is a hit! Mr Wirtz is now ready to meet his public!A local band, which is very fun, wildly creative and resemble Gypsies Circus freaks from the 1800’s (in the best way possible), is about to release their brand new album “Blackberry Wood in the Wild West Medicine Show … presented by Mr Edward Wirtz”.
To obtain your very own copy, please feel free to contact the band directly!
I posted a few of my painted backgrounds on etsy for you as a digital file in case you are looking for some extra art pieces.
Check out a recent blog post, which shows some great samples by clicking here!
Once you have created a few stamped, scratched, torn, smudged or sketched (etc) pieces to send to one lucky member of our Art Journal Junkies group, CLICK HERE and select a recipient’s address at random. Package it up, decorate the envelope and off to the post office you go. Wah-la! You have just sent someone HAPPY MAIL!
Imagine that you have been delivering mail door to door, house to house year after year. Seeing one bland, plain, boring mailbox after another bland, plain, boring mailbox.
Now picture yourself as the homeowner, picking up your mail day after day from your very own bland, plain, boring old mailbox.
What if you could decorate your mailbox in any way you wish?
Decoupage! Paint! Glitter!
Sketch your mailbox (or dream mailbox, if you do not have one) and let your creativity wander….
What type of mailbox decor would make you smile ear to ear?
Now, go ahead, and decorate your journal page mailbox!
I kept my journal page a bit less detailed this time and was inspired by The Little Shop of Horrors movie !Here is a LINK to a blog post about when I painted my actual mailbox back in 2010! CLICK HERE
