Wow – the time has gone by in a blink! So much going on this past month and I think I’m finally caught up. Exciting things!
First, I was approached about being in a Collaboration Coloring Book project with other artists – I was excited but apprehensive about such a big project, but ultimately, being part of this is only going to be a good thing! I will be one of the artists in the 2nd Volume of Global Doodle Gems! The 1st Volume should be released next month and the 2nd possibly in August! I finished my contributions and sent them off yesterday.
The second really exciting thing that happened was another invitation to be in another book! I will be among quite a few artists and their Tangle pattern Step Outs. Five of my patterns will be included in the book, along with some artwork. So excited for this as well – and hopefully that book will be available by Christmas.
Now with all this going on, I’ve got CZT Seminar coming up in two short weeks – my friend Karen and I are driving up to Rhode Island and we can’t wait. With all the creativity, I’ve got tons of ideas floating around in my head for my OWN book and this is the beginning of that….
You’ll have to use your imagination a bit, as the inking isn’t done. I’m sorry to say I will be much more careful about the photo’s I’m posting and watermarking them – I’ve had a bit of a run in with people thinking my work on my FB page was FREE, so much of the art there was taken down and will only be re-uploaded when it’s all been watermarked. I don’t like watermarking, I much preferred to upload low resolution, smaller photo’s but after having all of my work downloaded by a group of enthusiastic coloring page seekers (and honestly, who knows who else downloaded them) I think I have to be more cautious.
So, to sum up – Coloring Book, Tangle pattern Step Out Book, CZT training, compiling a good amount of pages for my own book, the end of the school year (yay!) and then its SUMMER VACATION! Whooohoooo! I have a copy of Elements 13 I need to learn how to use for more professional editing of my artwork (help!) and lot’s of sketchbooks to fill, not to mention, I’d like to make a few more videos – what would you all like to see next?
