Drum Roll: I Won a Great Giveaway!
I want to share, introduce, toot the horn of . . . well, you get the idea . . . Seth Apter. I was introduced to Seth when I joined with him and hundreds of other artists earlier this year in his Disintegration Collaboration. Seth is always coming up with creative ways to connect artists from all over the world. Once I discovered Seth's blog, The Altered Page, I was hooked. You're going to want to take a peek for yourself.
One of Seth's many projects is The Pulse, which Seth describes as : This is an ongoing, online project that focuses on the art blogging community. There have been three editions of The Pulse to date. Two have been artist surveys and one was a project called "Playing Favorites" where the participating artists shared a picture of their favorite artwork that they have made and a story to go along with it.
A while back, Seth had a giveaway to celebrate his blog's two-year birthday. Lucky me, I was one of two winners. I have in my possession a copy of Seth's zine, The Pulse Artist Survey and it is packed with artist goodness. Many of my favorite artists answer such questions as "Top 10 ways to get into a creative groove," or "In a few words or a few sentences, how would you describe your artistic style?"
If you would like to order a copy for yourself, or see some of Seth's artwork that is for sale, check out his Etsy site. In the meantime, here's a sampling of his zine, which also shows the cover art he did for this publication. Thanks, Seth!
