Call for Artists!! The Collaborative Art Journal Project

In the spirit of the New Year and new beginnings & adventures....

I am now actively looking for artists of any medium in any part of the world to participate in a traveling collaborative art journal project, [as per my vague and brief 1st entry!]

A journal will be sent from one participating artist to the next with each adding their own contribution, and if they like, a response to previous entries.
My plan so far is that alongside this journal, a collaborative blog will be set up so that each person can post their latest entry as they add to the journal, allowing others to see/ask questions/offer feedback on the works- and as a way for us to touch base on how we are going. This will also allow other people to see the progress of our project.

If you are interested or have any ideas for this project, please let me know- I'd love to hear from you!

Illustration Friday- Holiday

Holidays, at any time of the year are for me, about sleeping in, cups of tea and trashy daytime tv...well at least for some of the time.

Illustration Friday- Blue

I know this isnt illustration, but i wanted to join in nonetheless...

"Blue" made me think of that feeling when you look up at the sky when the sun is brilliant and warm and without a single cloud. I took this photo to remind me of that moment when your eyes have to close from the glare and you think you might sneeze!

The sun warm on your face.....bliss

Sunday mornings have a nice vibe.....

relaxed, contemplative...or something like that.

Anyways, the point of this entry: If you haven't seen then you should.

Basically it is the result of a project between four artists who sent an art journal back and forth across the Atlantic, each contributing, adding and responding to the previous entry.

well it inspired me. it reminded me of the need to go back to the pre-art school un-precious days of creating for the fun of it.

As a 4 year old, I had a sketch book that I had with me almost everywhere I went and I drew in it constantly. It was even lying there open when I decided to cut my own hair, catching the flecks of hair as I randomly trimmed. It even caught the first drops of blood as a accidentally cut my thumb in the process. [years later when we moved house and were unpacking, I found that book, still with the hair in the center pages!] I don't know what became of this book as we moved a few more times after that but it still remains my first memory of creative corny as that sounds!

so anyway the whole basis of this blog [which I must admit I am finding confrontingly narcissistic] is that like many others inspired by this idea, I want to start one. If you are a visual artist, or someone that enjoys being creative and want to be involved in a collaborative art journal project please contact me! tell me about yourself, you work, your ideas and where your from and lets go from there!
