Willing to try something.....??

I am not one to usually try something like this... but let's give it a go, shall we?

CALL FOR ARTISTS!

I would like to feature some artists on this blog. Artists of my choosing, who would answer questions of my choice (just a couple) and provide me with a quality pic (or two or maybe even 3) of their work, along with a statement regarding how you view your own work (or some other topic, of your own choice).

The two things that I ask for are:

1. You need to feel that your item is not 'just a craft or hobby', (you do not have to be 'selling' your items)

and

2. You need to provide me with a link to another artist who YOU admire.

ok? anyone want to give it a shot? If you do.... leave me a note here, along with a link to YOUR website, blog or store and I will come visiting. To those that I pick, I will send you an email with a few questions and ask for your responses, along with a link to one of your favs.

This could be fun.... and who knows what we can turn up?

  1. I've heard of a cattle call, but a swine call???

    Seriously, though, I'd be game for it, if you'd consider me. http://sandfibers.etsy.com

  12. I might be too late to get in on this, but i'll leave a comment anyhow. I don't sell my work (though i do get paid to make it)--and, not only do i consider it art but the MFA program i teach in does, too. I love your posts over in the LJ fiberarts community. Here's a link to my blog:
