Hello!

It’s a good idea to treat yourself every once in a while. Life is stressful, work is hard, and the pace that we we’re constantly moving at is enough to make anyone feel rough at times.

So my question today is…

What are your artistic indulgences? How do you treat yourself when it comes to creativity? 

Please let us know in the comments below (or share over Twitter & Facebook) and be sure to take a look at the awesome list of job opportunities below.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Have you ever experienced that “I wish *I* had thought of that!” feeling? Perhaps it’s a piece of art or line of a song. Maybe an idea for a story or theme for a play. I’m sure at one point or another we all have felt something like this.

So today my question is…

What is the one piece of work (art, song, book, etc.) by someone else that you wish YOU had created?

I’d love to hear your answers in the comments below (and we always get plenty of response over Twitter and Facebook as well). And be sure to also check out the great list of job opportunities I have for you today.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I did a little people-watching yesterday and noticed one particular woman who was strolling past in a wonderfully colourful, wildly printed dress. I began to wonder what influenced such a vibrant sense of style. I find my own clothes to be colourful as well and I love prints. I like playing with make-up and am never timid about trying new & unusual hairstyles. I’ve always had a unique sense of style, which seems to be pretty common among artistic types.

Do you think your artistic nature influences your fashion and personal style?

Be sure to let us know in the comments section below after you check out the great list of jobs I have for you today.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Are you inspired to start another week? Does your working environment help with that?

I love to see where people work and where they create their art. I’m currently without an official office or studio and it’s driving me nuts! What about you?

Where do you create your art?

What does your studio / office look like?

We’d love if you’d show us a pic of your space in our Studios & Work Spaces album. And be sure to tell us a bit about it!

And, of course, we have a great list of jobs for you to start the week off with.

Have a wonderful day!

Creating your art is often only the first step in the process of getting it out to the public. Websites and services exist to help in that regard, and we’re interested in what you think of them.

Have you ever sold your designs on products/merch through Cafepress or Zazzle?

What are your thoughts on either or both sites?

We’d love to hear about your experiences in the comments below!

Hello! 

We had our first “staff meeting” last night which happened through a chat right here on our website. Since our core staff and magazine team are located across the country, we’re excited about the possibility of connecting more regularly this way. 

We’re thinking the simple chat feature might also be fun for our members to connect! We have a few ideas in the works, but would also love to hear from you. 

Are there themes or ideas of chats you would like us to host? Please leave your ideas in the comments below.

Have a wonderful day!
