from blog to bookshelf

12-16-art-journaling2

it started as a blog post and i can't quite believe it's now in print! my article Inky Antics and journal pages are on pages 98-101 of Art Journaling Winter 2010. it's a delicious issue and it goes without saying that i'm thrilled to be in it. you can get a peek of my pages here. a supersize thanks to Somerset Studio for another opportunity to be in one of their great mags! it will be available at borders, barnes & noble and most other major bookstores on january 1.

on the radar today: re-hydrating gouache from my dried out tubes (not pretty, but it works), finishing up a feelgood painting (sparked during this shred of time a few early mornings ago), working on some new magnets (some naughty and some nice), and finally having some decent coffee after brewing FOUR pots of toxic liquid. still riding high on the fumes from all of your birthday wishes! thank you!
