Kent, I love the poster! Yes, let's get in the arena and play the game!
Today I am feeling a burst of joy and I wanted to spread the love. I want to give away a copy of my ebook to you all (only if you want it!) Art Nurture: The Simple Guide to Cultivating Your Creativity.
Here's how you grab your free copy...
Click the link here and scroll down to where it says "Have a coupon code? Get discount now"
click "get discount now" and enter the special code I made for you to get the book for free "ARTISTSARISE".
I really hope you love it and that it can be of use to you on your creative journey. Thanks so much for being a supportive community, a safe place to ask questions and share thoughts and projects. That is a true gift.
Here's a video that shares with you more about the book.
Hi folks - I don't consider myself much of a graphic artist but I put together a poster featuring a great quote from Teddy Roosevelt (it went along with a blog post). Thought I'd post it here in case anyone would like it. I included it below or you can click here to download.
Why, thank you Deby. And they told me harmonica doesn't work in bluegrass.
Eric, nice writing and some really great pickin' on your sites! Thanks for sharing!
John, thanks for the report. Sounds like a fun gig and hopefully more paying gigs will come along soon. I love swing dancing!
It was a cool event - good energy and good dancers!
Ironically, even this was my 1st paid gig in a while, (Here's my blog post on this..) it wasn't as fun as some unpaid events I've DJ'd for friends. In the end DJ's want to see people dancing to music they're playing, right?
There were mostly swing dancers, and no one really came by for tango. Still, I was ready with my playlist and felt like it was payment for some past unpaid work.
Plus, I know I can help the organizer make her next event more successful. This was her first one involving tango - she's mostly a swing dancer.. (Coincidentally, my partner for my first gigs teaching tango is also a world-renowned swing dancer.)
Thanks, y'all. Melissa, the mental blocks are a little easier to deal with these days, at least for now. Putting on my steel helmet helps a lot.
Deby, you'll find some of my writing on creativeanddangerous.com. As far as the music, the best I can do right now is an old myspace page. Yeah, I know. Been so long I can't even remember the password to get in.
Tony, those look great! Do you think their prices are good?
Eric, welcome to the group, we're happy that you're here! Please share a link to your music and your writing. We'd love to see what you're doing.
John, how did your even go? It sounds really interesting.
Dean, cool idea! Congrats on the job. Do you have a different characters to choose from?
Tony, I love the mug and the pillow- how fun! Great print.
Welcome Eric. Hopefully you are not having mental blocks currently :)
Deby- thanks for the article link. My thoughts echo Timmery's. Also, thank you for the guidelines for commissions. I was asked what I charged for a commission design and I had absolutely no idea!
Dean, Congratulations! Commissions have an extra component of challenge, but it sure feels good to know people are connecting with your art.
This looks like a good place to sit down ... I'm a writer (fiction and nonfiction) and musician, so I'm quite familiar with all the pitfalls. And the mental blocks. And the bad self talk.
