I found a bunch of new, interesting art sites this week, plus the Free Motion Quilting Challenge started – you can see the badge on the right side, and it’s not too late to sign up. I’m looking forward to practicing a new pattern each month.
A new blog – The Creativity Post – looks to be very interesting, and I love the stuff on brain research.
“The Creativity Post is a non-profit web platform committed to sharing the very best content on creativity, in all of its forms: from scientific discovery to philosophical debate, from entrepreneurial ventures to educational reform, from artistic expression to technological innovation – in short, to all the varieties of the human experience that creativity brings to life.”
Here’s a screen shot of some of their most popular entries:
From DesignBoom comes a spray-painted-skate-boarded-swimming-pool-design, complete with video…..really cool!
From PSD FanExtra comes a tutorial on designing t-shirts. This is very step-by-step – I think even I could do it (but maybe with a dog instead….).
Another MAD Magazine countdown of great blog covers…..Jerry and Joe and their new gig….
If you love dogs….well, even if you don’t, this is an adorable video of two dogs in a “restaurant,” waiting to order…..
And…MAD Magazine’s #1 blog cover – has been my favorite since I first saw it. Boehner vs. Obama and the DEBT…….Think Harry Potter……
A new blog I discovered by an Australian quilter, Emma at Sampaguita Quilts, with her finished quilts for 2011 – some luscious ones for eye candy! I love this one –
Another new blog – 365 Project – amazing photography! This is their official Top 20 post.
And from Alyson Stanfield and the Art Biz Blog comes some interesting resolutions for the new year: 12 Artist Resolutions to Steal for 2012.
Love this one: RESOLVE to stop fiddle-farting around on the Internet or with the TV remote control and start dedicating myself 100% to my life’s work.
And finally, a selection of Happy New Year’s from The Best Article Every Day.
