Hello!

Fonts are interesting, not only in themselves, but also in how people view them. Some people simply don’t notice fonts and couldn’t care less. Others are passionate about them. Seriously, don’t even get people started on Comic Sans ;)

But that leads me to our questions for today…

What fonts do you love/hate? Which do you use most often? And which do you use for what?

I’d love to hear your answers in the comments below (or share over Twitter & Facebook) and be sure to take a look at the list of great job opportunities below. 

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Well, I’ve caught my first cold of the season and it’s a whopper! Snuffed nose, sore throat, and my head feels like a balloon. Of course, this comes on a day when a special little person in my life is celebrating their birthday, so it looks like I’ll be drinking lots of tea to make it through the celebrations.

Despite feeling ill and having a party on hand (don’t worry, it’s only the family party today, so I’m not spreading germs), I’ve still managed to pop up a job list for you. I hope it has the opportunity you’re looking for!

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I’m determined to keep myself sorted in the coming months and replying promptly to emails is always one of my priorities when it comes to keeping on top of things. However it seems to be something that many struggle with. Do you have trouble keeping on top of endless emails or are you able to manage the ever-incoming stream?

What are your tips/advice for keeping your inbox under control?

I’d love to hear your answers in the comments below (or share over Twitter & Facebook) and be sure to take a look at the great 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 asked two question over the last couple of days (here & here) and got a great response.

Check them out:

.

What is the role of art? Is it different than the role of the artist?

“The role of art is to exist. Challenge, question, support, beautify, testify, et cetera. Not even the artist can guarantee what it will be. Too many factors… Time, culture, politics, history; it’s all organic.” - Mat Calverley

“The role of art is to inspire, explore and illuminate the truth.” - Brittney Francis

“provoke fun, thought & interest. Without art, life would be dull.The role of the artist is to create & share with the world.” - Nav Sehambhi

“The role of art is to uplift people’s spirits. The role of the artist is to attain artistic perfection.” - LorraineHétuManifold

“‘protect the origins of language and culture’” - karhiio

.

What is the role of the artist?

“create a pathway to experience.” - dsharpdavis

“”The Role of the artist is to make their own stylized comment on the state of humanity”" - Natalia Knowlton

“the role of the artist is to suspend time, even if just for a moment.” - Jacqueline Woods

“the role of the artist is to evoke, invoke and provoke” - Bartlett Gallery

“the artist is there to express themselves through their art and allow others to relate” - Staverous Cardini

“…poke into the edges we haven’t gone into or dare not go into.” - Maggie Shirley

“The role of the artist is to fill in the blank.” - Peggy MacKinnon

“connect” - Appy Aparnski

(We had many, many more answers, so I couldn’t include them all in this post).

Do you agree/disagree with any of the above? Have thoughts of your own on the subject? Be sure to let us know in the comments below after you’ve taken a look at the awesome list of job opportunities I have for you today.

Have a wonderful day!

Abstract Art - Heather Plewes

“Abstract Art” by Heather Plewes (@hplewes) 
[Want to see your art here? Click here for more info.]

Hello!

Yesterday was a looong day for me as the night before I went to bed at 1 a.m. then woke up at 5:40 a.m. Every day/night has pretty much been that way for the last few weeks as I try to balance everything I need to do while juggling a demanding (!) schedule.

Feeling the lack of sleep dragging at my body and fogging my mind, I asked over CAC, Twitter, and Facebook how our community keeps their (artistic) energy up.

Here are a few of their answers:

“Little naps during the day and night! And eating energy making foods and lots of water…” - Susan Weiss

“take stretch breaks, dance and….coffee helps too :)” - Dorothy Weiss

“Good music and awesome coffee – not crappy coffee, this is important! Good tasting coffee = good work” - Ben Purkiss

“I pace myself and I take short frequent and guilt free breaks to avoid burning out early.”@sanleigh

“i can only write out at coffee shops. The tea and company keeps me going.” – laurie petrou (@lauriepetrou)

“I eat lots of nuts and make sure I have something good/new to listen to:)” – D’Andrea Bowie (@d_andreab)

“Healthy snacks, and drinking lots of water. Being busy with dance makes me very happy and grateful, so that helps the most!” –  Nicole Rose Bond (@NicoleRoseBond)

“Going to the gym totally helps” - @NFBMediatheque

“Healthy food choices and hydration. Plus quality coffee…” – Kate U (@TOViolinKate)

“Gym and/or ride my horse. Mostly “or” (no time for both!).” - @wpgreview

“3 cups of tea before 10:00am” – Karina Bergmans, @KBergmans

The suggestions kept coming, with most including food, exercise, naps, music, and coffee. Lots of coffee. Good coffee. Confession: I don’t drink coffee. No wonder my mind is so foggy! lol!

How do YOU keep your energy up when you’re super busy? Leave a comment below!

Perhaps finding the perfect opportunity will fuel you up, so here’s a great list of jobs for you below.

Have a wonderful day!
