Because Creative Minds Want to Know . . .

I have boxes and boxes of old calendars - the kind that go on the wall, that kind that look like a book, the kind that have tear off days, the kind that go in your purse . . . magnetic ones, sticky ones, spiral bound ones . . . yep, I got 'em all. What do I do with them?

How to Use Old Calendars in Art Projects

This how-to touches lightly on what can be done with old calendars. I'll get into more detail about each specific project. I promise!

Happy arting!

Because Creative Minds Want to Know . . .

I decided to "harvest" some leads to sites where calls for artists are frequently posts:

Harvesting Opportunities: Calls For Artists

There are over 100 opportunities found when adding up all the leads on these sites. Now, let's get to work!

Happy arting!

MoFo Day 12: And so, she drew . . .

It's been a rough couple of days, so I decided to draw this morning. My first thought was to create angry art in order to purge what's been going on. Then, I decided against that and felt something more tranquil would work better . . .

Yes, it's my comfort tree again. I do this kind of art whenever my mind is full of too many other things. It's like free writing in my paper journal before working on a larger project. I free draw this type of work in order to break me into other works later on. I still plan to create another set of 4x4's or ACEOs today or tomorrow. That idea isn't completely gone.

MoFo: Day Nine

I'm being pulled in fourteen trillion directions today, so I sketched when there was a break in the action:

Tomorrow, my plan is to work on either four more collages or four more ACEOs. We'll see where the mood takes me.
