It’s finally time to try a giveaway contest!
I’ve finally printed a batch of postcards highlighting some of my favorite marker pieces. I started doing marker illustration a year ago when I was enrolled in ARTbundance™ Coach Training. We needed to do some artsy projects while going through the program, and I found myself thinking, “I don’t have time to get out all my art supplies.” So I reached for my caricature materials and just decided to have fun with markers. I work very quickly with markers, being a quick sketch caricature artist, so it was an easy fix for me.
It was quite freeing to give myself a permission slip to think of my “quick sketches” as art, even though it was just done quickly with marker and not watercolor or acrylics. I’m a work-at-home mom with a 3-yr-old and a 5-yr-old at home, so I don’t have much time on my hands. So just knowing I can get a piece of art done in less than ten minutes eliminates any excuses and frees me up to JUST DO IT. I finally CREATED A WAY out of my procrastination, by making my “just for fun” art more DO-ABLE and accessible.
These THREE postcards I’m giving away are all from my new Create-A-Way site. Two are from my ARTbundance™ PLAYbook, and one is my original Create-A-Way image I created gleefully in colored markers, planning to use it as a cover design for one of my retreat handouts last year.
DIRECTIONS FOR THE GIVEAWAY:
Leave a comment on this entry, telling a moment (big or small) in which you CREATED A WAY out of some seemingly hopeless problem. It could be as big as a job change or as small as learning how to open the pickle jar. I will draw names randomly out of the people who leave comments here – there will be three winners (3 postcards per winner). After I draw the names, I’ll be contacting you for your mailing address so I can send these to you via post.
GIVEAWAY DRAWING will be held Thursday, September 30, 2010.
