a doodleview for violette











if you have a moment today, grab a cup of coffee and swing over to canada to say hello to the endlessly creative violette, who featured a little doodled interview with me this morning. like my other doodleviews on artists who blog and pecannoot, this one was quite an honor to do - i've admired violette's expressive art and journals for a long time, and i'm especially taken with her way of weaving creativity into every part of her life. it seems like everything she touches turns into art, and everyone she meets comes away inspired by her.

you can see more of violette's beautiful work in her new book journal bliss, her colorful journal pages and illustrations, and in her online tutorials and workshops. my little girls are captivated by her videos and i think they'd do just about anything to see violette in action. and i know we'd all flip if we got to see her magic cottage and glittergirl van!

the comment section on her blog requires a quick account setup, which you're welcome to do - you can also send her an e-mail at violetteclark(at)shaw(dot)ca, or of course you may come back here to leave your thoughts. hope you enjoy it! thanks for the honor, violette - and if you are a new reader via violette's blog, welcome - so glad to have you here!

until next time, doodle-oooooo.....

roflol loved the interview, and what you would be when you grow up (sorry i meant if you weren't an artist)...and all i can now say is, 'I am sooo honoured that you bought a piece of my art'..the piece I could've sold ten times over, you have good taste aimee, which I already knew.

Carmen said...

I just love your interviews! I sooo need to book you for an interview on my blog! ♥

May said...

lori vliegen said...

genius.....sheer, doodle-fun, genius!! i would love to see your "interview" bound as a fun little art book. and i would have ten of them on my shelf at all times (nine to keep and one to give away....ooops, silly selfish me, i meant the opposite....of course!) :))

violette said...

Thanks for the kind words about my artful life!

Absolutely..Doodlicious, You are the queen of brilliant doodles what can I say...Both interviews are so engaging and pure fun to read....look at...very clever Aimee. Many favorites but my favorite favorite was the backwards writing...your style is not a style...it's an invention.

Bella Sinclair said...

You give the BEST interviews! You know, you should really consider publishing a doodled guide to motherhood/womanhood. Your sense of humor and unique view of life and doodles are so uplifting. They remind me to laugh at life's oddities. Think about it.....

jane said...

Alexandra Hedberg said...

your doodle answers are so funny, Aimee

I don't think it's hard to paint because I've always just driven cars with stick shift and never thought that part was hard to learn. Those signs on the other hand - I keep mixing up the round red and yellow with other nice colourful round traffic signs.

Lauren Elizabeth said...

I really enjoyed your unique and incredibly creative way of relaying the interview to your readers. It's brilliant! :-)

L-O-V-E the doodle about the creative well running dry! I included it in today's Monday Muse post (with full props to you, of course) If you prefer I didn't, just lmk and I'll take it down.

I love stopping by artsyville for a visit - there is always something wonderful!

Le blÖg d'Ötli said...

The more I see you pictures, the more I like them !!! Nice way to "write" ;)

Anairam said...

A great interview - I love how you answer each question as a little doodle-art work! I especially like #6 - I am not even an artist (beginning or established) and I'm already having fun!

aimee said...

thank you!! i love doing doodleviews and i love that you all take the time to read them!

First Fruit Flowers said...

One of my dreams is to fulfill your #7 for artists like you - to offer an enchanting little creative spot amongst my "one day in the future" flower farm. I'll put your name at the top of the list!

I received my etsy order from you today - re: the creative gypsy. Thank you - it's lovely. It's going to work nicely in my new office/studio. We move next week.

P.S. I don't think I mentioned, Aimee, how much I loved your responses to this interview. What a hoot!
