I absolutely love making these books! I have added two new sketchbook journals to my etsy shop. As an artist I have always just made my own sketchbooks and did so by choosing the most ideal paper to serve my drawing and sketching needs. The paper in these are very versatile for an array of art mediums and each book is a one-of-a-kind item all completely made by hand.

I have never done this before but I am promoting another artist that I discovered on Etsy who has really inspired me with her watercolor pictures of natures gifts and has become a new artist friend as well. Jody VanB is this artist and she is also a mother of two little boys but manages to do so many paintings on every evening occasion when her little ones are off to bed. Furthermore, she is a success on Etsy having sold 237 paintings in all in just a little over a year. I don't suppose my blog gets so many views but I do want to share her work because it is so elegant and pleasing to the eye. To see more of Jody's work up for sale check out her etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/jodyvanb

I was contacted by a band called the Design who asked to use my octopus etching in a promotional flyer for their show taking place at the Wind Jammer in the Isle of Palms South Carolina. I love the text worked in with the image which fits together perfectly, they did a really nice job so I asked for a flyer for myself. I only wish I could check out the live even myself which is to take place on March 31st. It is a beautiful thing when artists of all kinds can network together via the internet and despite physical distance their lives can come merging together in a way. The artist who contacted me and is in the band has her own etsy shop too, where she makes really cool wrist bands. You can find her work at http://www.redkatblack23.etsy.com/.
