#ARTifacts: The Exhibit

Artifacts (plural noun): objects made by a human being, typically an item of cultural or historical interest.

ARTifacts (plural noun): a collaborative project for 2017 documenting adventures in art.

This past year, I hosted an online, collaborative project called ARTifacts. Participants documented their creative lives throughout the year, in any form they chose. Some people made traditional journals while others simply made art. I have been posting contributions monthly here.

While not every artist contributed every month, each submission was unique and inspired. Today, I am sharing the best of ARTifacts, as chosen by each participant. Enjoy the show...

Creativation 2018 Videos

Creativation 2018, the annual trade show for the Association for Creative Industries, ended this past week. It was an exciting show for me, with multiple product releases, workshops, booth demos, and social networking.

For the majority of you who did not attend, this post brings a bit of the show to you. What follows are videos sharing both technique demos and product reviews. Thanks to all the videographers (e.g., people with iPhones) for capturing these. 

For those of you who are waiting to receive your orders of Baked Texture, you might want to bookmark this page and the videos are filled with step-by-step instructions on many techniques.
