Taking your art to the next level in 2015!I am taking my art to the next level in 2015, who's with me?
I want to fall in love with art all over again. Going through the painful process of growth as the art-bones stretch and your creativity get's set loose after wondering if you had any creativity at all!
2015 marks a new year and a new start, make the most of it and don't start it unprepared!
Here follows a list of things I'd like to do in 2015. You could call it a bucket-list. You can copy mine or make your own, but this might give you some ideas for yourself.
:bulletblue: 1. Going through all the fundamentals all over again.
It has been a few years that I studied any fundamentals and they seem to be lost somewhere in a dusty corner of my brain. I will buy: Books, video's, classes and study it by drawing or painting the knowledge I get from this. After doing so I will discus the topics with some fellow artist friends and see if they have feedback or perhaps anything to add that I might have missed.
Here is a
This is why you (and your art) get ignored.People often get the sense of being ignored in the art-scene, especially here online. We all try so hard to get our foot in the door, it's like trying to stuff yourself in an overfull bus like a sardine in a can.
Sometimes you just want to socialize with other artists you admire and you seem to be talking into a brick wall or perhaps you've send your portfolio to a company over a dozen times and still don't even seem to get the smallest response or feedback. I will try and tell you WHY you get ignored and HOW you can get noticed instead.
I will go through the following cases of being ignored:
:bulletgreen: Your comment.
:bulletgreen: Your art.
:bulletgreen: Your Portfolio.
:bulletyellow: Do know, that even though being ignored feels very personal it's hardly ever personal at all! 
:bulletblue: Your comment(s) gets ignored.
It happens ever so often. You notice an artwork or a discussion and you weigh in with your opinion or admiration, perhaps even some feedback? T

I was approached by the founder of a commissions company called ArtCorgi, which has gone live today.
This is what ArtCorgi is all about to those interested: 
ArtCorgi wants it to be easier for everyday people to commission people from up-and-coming artistsThey also want artists to be paid fairly for their work and not have to compete with lower and lower prices (which is a BIG DEAL for me!) ArtCorgi is designed to facilitate art commissionsArtists list different styles of commissions they offer with set prices, which enables clients to purchase commissions right awayArtists set turnaro

Leonard Nimoy's Full Body ProjectOn November 2nd R. Michelson Galleries in Northampton, MA will be holding the opening of the exhibit of Leonard Nimoy's Full Body Project.  (Yes, that Leonard Nimoy.)  This coincides with release of his book by the same name, and there will be a symposium on size and body issues that evening.  Leonard will be on hand to talk about the project, as well.
What is The Full Body Project, you ask?  Well, it's about fat women.  Fat naked women. To read more about it in Leonard's words, please check out his artist's statement.

Gamer for Life: Fight Cancer with ArtLike many other late 20/early 30's peeps, I did not yet have a solid sense of human mortality when I heard the terrible news.  Kevin K Griffith, a friend, coworker, and fellow artist who was barely older than me was diagnosed with a rare and devastating form of cancer.  It seemed almost improbable for someone who was so fit, happy, and full-of-life to suddenly be facing death.  I read his and his wife's optimistic, touching, funny, and heart-breaking journals as they navigated through physical pains, emotional hurdles, medical procedures, and crazy insurance roadblocks.  I put logic aside and believed that somehow things still might work out fine.
I was high on Jet lag and beer when I checked my facebook, late last year.  The news of Kevin's passing hit me like a hammer to the face.
I thought about the time he sneaked me into a company learning event when I was just a nervous noob waiting for my interview.  I thought about the jokes we shared at sketch gro
