My thoughts about the creative process and a place to share my art works.

I am excited as a project I was a part of just came out in a book. Art art pals, John Arbuckel http://artjuvenation.blogspot.com/ Brian Kasstel http://www.briankasstle.com/ and Thomas LaBadia https://www.flickr.com/photos/thomasoo/with/10915962744/ were a part of this. Author and artist Jill K. Berry had put out a call for proposals for a book she was doing Making Art from Maps. John and I brainstormed and came up with a mail art project. We were planning a Creative Gents (that's what we call ourselves ) retreat here in Bemidji at my home. So we made mail art postcards and I made articulated art dolls of us using maps from where we are from- Thomas altered our faces in Photoshop. This was over a year ago we did this project. The retreat here did happen last year June 2015. The first Photo is the book cover then are some shots of the dolls and my post card I made. This was such a fun project. The book is full of map awesomeness - some how-to projects and a great gallery of map art done by artist from all over the world.
