On the Pages of 'The Mixed-Media Artist'

The Mixed-Media Artist

My upcoming book, due to be released in October 2013, provides an intimate look into the hearts, souls, and creative processes of 44 inspiring artists.

Just some of what you will find on the pages of this book includes:

Q & A: Contributing artists share their creative perspective and intimate thoughts in response to a series of provocative questions relevant to being an artist today. 


Artwork: New artwork was created by every contributing artist in response to thought provoking prompts. Artists also provided a description of the meaning behind each of their pieces. Many contributors, including CW Slade whose work is presented here, created self portraits based on their choice of 1 of the following 3 prompts: My Shadow SideThe Face I Show the World, or The Woman/Man I'll never be.


Step-Outs: Many of the artists, such as Nathalie Nayer whose work is excerpted below, provided step-by-step instruction to show the process they undertook to complete the specific work that they contributed to the book.



Tips and Tricks: A number of the artists included their own special tips and tricks that are a big part of their creative process...and can be a part of yours as well.


Community Survey: The results of a survey posted on my blog and opened to the entire online, creative community are revealed in sidebars threaded throughout the entire book. No doubt many of you contributed responses.


Online Component: Given the limit of 144 pages and the generosity of the participating artists, I received much more content than could be published. As a result, links are provided within the book to  additional online content.

----------------------------

The Mixed-Media Artist will be sold in stores and will ship from online shops in October. It is currently available by preorder at Amazon. Signed copies will also be sold through my blog as well.

I will definitely get a copy of your new book. It looks wonderful! By the way - the book you sent me (Too Much Glue) is wonderful. My grandson read it to me and then we sent it to class for his teacher to read to everyone. It's a delightful, artsy kid's book with super illustrations!!! So a big thank you from me (Gina) and my grandson Isaiah.
