Thank you all for being a part of The Pulse! Thanks to the participating artists. Thanks to all the people who read through the survey posts. Thanks to all those who left comments, wrote emails, and/or posted about the project on their own blogs. And a personal thank you to all those individuals who left comments but did not leave a return email for me to write back to. The Pulse is a lot of work but I find it extremely rewarding and I am already looking forward to the next installment! If you are an artist with an online presence and would like to be a part of the next edition, please email me so I can add you to the list of participants.
I am thrilled with the final result and with this ever-growing community of online artists, to which I feel a strong connection. To me this is about collaboration. About the conversation. To that end, I appreciate all the honest feedback I received about the survey and am taking each and every suggestion into consideration. As a work in progress, you can expect a new look with every single chapter of The Pulse.
But before the next chapter begins, there is unfinished business to attend to. And up first is the zine. I have decided to go ahead with a print version of the survey, which I have been working on fervently. Expect an announcement with details soon. And for those of you with fantastic memory and great attention to detail (see Sarah Fishburn's last comment on the previous post), you may have noticed that only 6 of the 7 promised questions from the artist survey were actually posted on my blog. If you want to see the 7th, you will find it only in the zine!
I am not sure how consistent my postings will be over the next week or so, as I am dedicating my time to working on the zine. However, regular posts will begin again soon. Over the run of The Pulse, I have "collected" so much to show and so much to say. So stay tuned! And thank you all once again!!
