I was reading Entrepreneur magazine last week and came across this Seth Godin quote I wanted to share with you as a bit of encouragement to keep going as artists:
"Icarus. The original myth had two parts. Daedalus said to his son, 'I fashioned these wings for you. Two rules. Don't fly too high, or the sun will melt the wax. But, more important, son, don't fly too low. Because if you fly too low, the water and the waves will surely weigh down the wings, and you will die.' We've left out the second part of the myth. We don't say to people anymore, "Don't fly too low." All we do from the time they are 4 years old is warn them against hubris. We have created this industrially led structure that says: How dare you."~Seth Godin, quoted in the current issue of Entrepreneur magazine.
Also, a fellow artist and I are holding a show March 16 to showcase our flower photos - any suggestions as how many to hold, how to invite people. We are photographers and will be printing like mad women. It's going to be Friday night March 15 for social part and March 16 for show.
Thought I would use facebook to invite folks and have wine and such (I don't drink, though). Any suggestions? My fellow artist lost her granddaughter, Lily so we may make it in her honor.
I read Platform - that's a great book. Glad you mentioned it Jim. I'll have to reread it.
I am meeting with a couple ladies from my daughter's school who are major fundraisers and marketing folks. They hold an auction that raises $100,000 per night and another $100,000 in money they raise along the way.
Wonder if you guys could suggest questions I can ask?
Good morning, friends! I wanted to share a new blog post: 7 Reasons You Shouldn't Miss the Oscars. I thought you might enjoy it, being artists and all. :) Hope you are having a great day.
I just wrote a guided sketchbook called 1001: A Sketch Odyssey It's a thousand and one things to draw, create, illustrate and invent, all designed to enhance your art skills and buid your creativity. I'd love to get your opinion on it.http://www.amazon.com/1001-Sketch-Odyssey-designed-creativity/dp/14...
Yeah Jim, I've been wanting to read that one. I guess I need to go out and buy it. Our local library doesn't have very many current titles.
Just finished reading Michael Hyatt's book Platform; http://www.amazon.com/Platform-Get-Noticed-Noisy-World/dp/159555503.... Plan on starting it again and taking more notes. If your wanting to build a business and tribe he can help. He went over a lot of things I already knew, but shed a lot of new light on what does and doesn't work. I had already started doing a couple of them with my ebay auctions not realizing it. He has other things I plan to implement. Once again he reiterates the importance of "the list", getting your followers email and how to utilize it to benefit them and you. Definite read for anyone building their own business.

Lisa, my customer showed me a photo of what he wanted.
Great looking start on that Batman Brad, can't wait to see the finished product!
Hi Guys, I haven't checked in a while, but I have been reading posts and very excited about the work.
Deby, I love your last one the Field of Delight. I love this one best of all - so far. And the story is awesome!
Chris, your cars are great. I love the truck.
Brad, I agree. It's great to draw something different. Your Batman is fierce!
