The Pulse of Mixed Media

today i went to the post office in anticipation. 
today the book i ordered finally arrives from Amazon.com. 
today i walk afloat like there's wind underneath my soles. 
today i saw with my very own eyes, my work on the page of a book.


so ... this is how it feels to be 'published' ^.^



The Pulse of Mixed Media by Seth Apter is a book about the inner workings of artists. within those pages they share their inner most secrets and passions, and what make them the artists they are. the first 2 sections highlight 31 accomplished mixed media artists, their works and their inner worlds. the last section of the book features another 103 artists and their works, from all over the world. and that's where you'll find lil ole me :) 

i still remember Seth calling for art submissions ... that must have been about 17 months ago becos i remember i just had Maia and she's now 17 months old :) i thought i won't make it for the selection, and i didn't for the first part of Q&A, but just about managed for the submission of the artwork part. 

i feel so blessed that Seth gave me my first opportunity to be in a book, HIS book. you know what they say about firsts ... they stay in your heart for the rest of your life :)

  9. LT - of course now we might have to give you a title like OMPO (Oh mighty publish one) - no seriously congratulations - I think publishing is important for artists and their art - not only sharing their creativity but the opportunity to be inspired by artists such as yourself - your work is very unique and very you. Go well and may you continue to create gems and be published more often. B
