Thanks!

What a wonderful weekend!
Thanks to everyone who came to see us at the Alki Beach Art Festival and a huge thanks to all you who bought my art!
I had a great time, relaxing at the beach, selling art and meeting new people...It was wonderfully hot and I came home as red as a lobster but it was well worth it!
Here's some pix from the weekend:

My paintings...








Steady flow of people in the tent!



The view...see the Space Needle in the distance?

City Hostel Seattle is Getting A MakeOver...

By many local artists including myself!
We all met up this evening with the curator Jen and owner Lee to check out the progress and choose the rooms we will be painting.
It's going to be much like the Hotel Des Arts in San Francisco, where each artist
(local to Seattle) will paint one room with their choice of design, color, etc..
My room is Suite #218 on the 2nd floor. It has plenty of room and a private bath.

Here's some before pictures...

I will post pix when I start on the room, they (the hard workers) are going to clean up, primer the walls white and lay some carpet before I go in and paint my designs....it should be in the next week or so when I get started on it. I'm really happy to be part of this! This is going to be so GREAT!

Handmade Graphics

by Anna Wray

Get back to basics with Handmade Graphics, which will reinvigorate every graphic designer’s image- making process. Reawaken your dormant “art student,” step away from that computer, get your hands dirty, and start to play!

From pencils to computers, from scissors to paper, from stencils to printers, a vast array of mark-making tools are investigated and manipulated, illustrated with examples and exercises that stretch the limits of conventional usability, reinvent traditional, hand-making methods, and break all the rules along the way. As well as the usual mark-making devices, a range of left-field methods and processes are also explored, employing household materials and found objects, and subverting the correct usage of digital and electronic devices.

So, if you’re a graphic designer looking for inspiration beyond the usual off-the-peg solutions, this ideas-packed handbook offers a comprehensive “toolbox” of low-tech materials, high-tech equipment, old school tools, and subtly subverted methods and processes. After a good dose of hands-on mark-making, take those experiments back to your computer to create eye-catching and unique graphic solutions.
