Peak Week

Some weeks are good. Some weeks are great. And some weeks are peaks! This prior week was definitely one of those in terms of art!

1. Received my copy of Cynjon's new zine, Varietist Muse. I was lucky enough to have a number of pieces of my artwork published in this issue, including the artwork pictured below. This inaugural volume is the "You Say You Want a Change" issue. Click this link to see sample pages and to buy this gem.




2. Worked on papers to send to Lynne and Julie for our Graffiti Wall collaboration.





3. Completed the Global Guerilla (k)nit in with Jill from Jazworks and didn't have to "post" bail! Thank you grrl & dog for sponsoring this cool collaboration.




4. Received Jill's book to work in for the Inner Works Altered Book project. The book is already spectacular and the theme, Designs in Nature, is right up my alley. Here are a few details of Jill's stunning pages. And the last two shots are details from one of my pages in progress.






5. Worked on some other art projects, to be revealed soon.

6. Finally got around to photographing an amazing package of treasures I received a while ago from Karen Cole from Artsortments. If you are not familiar with her amazing copper and acrylic pieces, run right now to her blog! Thanks KC!

A veritable plethora of wonderful eye candy in this post Seth!!! The texture in the nature themed book looks simply divine, one of those books that has to be fondled to be truly appreciated.

This was a super week for you, indeed. Artworks published in Cynjon's new Zine, super artwork in your collaboration with Lynne and Julie and what a display of goodies to relish in Karen Cole's treasures to you. And of course, the wonderful antics of our Guerilla knitting attack with Grrl + Dog's Global Guerilla project. Very special thanks for displaying a glimpse of your work in my Designs in Nature Innerworks collaborative Altered Book. Got goosebumps just looking at what you've shown. It looks just beautiful. All amazing projects and accomplishments!

Lynn said...

coming to your blog is like going to the coolest of all art shows ever anywhere i enjoy it so much.
terrific to be published too, but of course your work should be! glad for you!

sf said...

Seth! This looks really cool. On buying moratorium at the moment as I'm looking for a real world job right now (have you noticed how quiet i get when otherwise occupied???); we are trying to get an art-filled coffeehouse up & running but still need to keep a little SOMEthing in the home fridge! Also trying to work out details of a summer trip back east to visit kids. But as soon as life gets sorted out, I'm getting me a copy!
Thanks for the heads up. . .
Oh ps the rest of your post was action-packed, too!

Jazz said...

Whoa! You've been seriously busy since I last managed to drop in! Love the tree by the way.
