Rather delicious working around the problem, that really is my process… it’s always the events around the main stage that unravels the brain. Doodles are most definitely my most effective tool and my most effective time waster!
So found this wonderfully rich animation that illustrates the point, excuse the pun!
Ok, so it’s been way too long away from the computer, the studio and all that is creative. I have been busy with my other hat on (coach driving) and getting the necessary pennies rolling in that doesn’t come so readily from my creative pursuits. On the plus side, I have been very caught up in the Olympic buzz with multiple trips back and forth to the Olympic Park, and surprised myself as to how much I am enjoying it and more specifically the upbeat mood that I am encountering with all the spectators.
Having a day of rest, I am able to reacquaint myself with some creative inspirations… this one I just had to share… most delicious!
Another great find from the creative explorer that is Artsy Forager… This one especially appeals… For obvious reasons!
I don’t always read Artist Statements but sometimes one just describes the artist’s work and vision so perfectly that I don’t feel like there is any way my words can improve upon it.

See what it does for you…
More delights to be found at the home of Sage Vaughn
Of course, book sculpture, book arts, artist books or altered books have been around for a considerable time. I am inspired by many artists and having just been asked by a good friend to recommend some creative book viewing pleasure, I thought it would be good to share to a broader audience… so here are some of those artists that particularly delight me in this field sometimes with their concept, sometimes their amazing skill and craft and of course many with all those ingredients rolled into one!
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do…
The outrageously talented Brian Dettmer
The delightful, playful work of Su Blackwell
Jaw dropping Guy Laramee
The colourful feminine work of Jacqueline Rush Lee
The precision of Georgia Russell
Patience and concept of Jill Sylvia
Intriguing Norike Ambe
Exquisite work of Maria Fischer
Intricate Meg Hitchcock
