Art Circus has FINALLY Been Released - Yay!
My dear artist friend, Lisa Kettell, has a new book on the market titled, "Art Circus, Techniques for Journals, Paper Dolls, Art Cards, and Assemblages." Lisa is a wonderful artist - her designs are full of magical whimsy sure to inspire creativity in others.
Lisa's book also features artwork from several guest artists, including: Gina Smith, Eileen Grobeck, Jennifer Hayslip, Lori Karla, Debrina Pratt, Izabella Pierce, Laurie Duncan, Marla Tomlinson, Amanda Howard, Ann-Denise Anderson, Alejandra Pliegro, Sandra Koterba and....ME!!! (WHOO HOO!) I know many of these fabulous artists from Flickr and other internet groups. Their artwork really is eye candy for the soul. I think you will agree once you check out the book.
Art Circus was originally scheduled for release on 2/1/09, but I received notification that Amazon.com shipped copies that I ordered for gifts yesterday. A few weeks ago, Lisa had informed us that pre-sales for the book were doing so well that the publisher (Quarry Books) decided to release the book a month early. I live in a small town and we aren't normally first on the list when it comes to receiving new things. That includes books. I think I've worn down the carpet in my local Barnes and Noble looking for Art Circus there. Oh, well, maybe my publisher's copy of the book will arrive any day now. I'm anxiously awaiting its arrival; it definitely gives me something to look forward to over the next few days.
