The one and only Jessie Prugh
I know a very, very busy bee.
My friend, Jess. One of my business partners in Tipsy Art, colleague at the Armory Art Center, fellow middle school art teacher and just in general one of my biggest artistic inspirations this year...yeah, she has been a busy bee.
See, she started an art publication. The website launched last night and the first print should come out this coming fall. The magazine will feature local artists...the whole idea being to provide a venue to get MORE ART out there.
...and the website looks a-ma-ziiiiiing. Really. I mean she IS a graphic designer. She also designed our Tipsy Art site. And I am crazy excited! Here are the links:

In addition...I will also be a very busy bee as I will be contributing in each issue. I am going to be writing about just staying inspired and motivated to be creative. After the year I have had, I really felt like this was something that I could speak on. It is almost a year since I posted my first blog entry...since I gave myself the kick in the tush to start creating art again and I am doing it. I am 'making' again. I would love the chance to motivate anyone else to do the same.
