Mindi is off this week. I am pleased to announce, due to popularity, and with a bit of coaxing with treats, she (Mindi) has accepted responsibilities here at Two Dresses to assist me as a part-time blogger, volunteering for literally the price of a small piece of bacon. Now, it`s my job to bring some home!
This week I have had to pinch myself a couple of times to make sure I wasn't dreaming. I've always subscribed to the idea that if something is too good to be true, then...well, you know the rest. I also have a tendency to hesitate announcing anything until it is 'signed, sealed and delivered.' But now the 'cat is in the bag' - I'm delighted, proud, pumped and overall giddy to share my news...
First, I received an email from Seth Apter to announce his second book titled " The Mixed Media Artist: Art Tips, Tricks, Secrets and Dreams from 40 Amazing Arts" is now listed on Amazon for pre-purchase. I have two pieces of artwork featured in his book, along with a link that will go live to an exciting stop-motion video of one of these pieces as it progresses from a graphite pencil drawing to a full color collage.
-The Mixed Media Artist -

Secondly, in December 2012 (aka best.gift.ever) I received word that I was among the winners in a competition hosted by Artists Network culminating in this hardcover book - Incite: Dreams Realized - The Best of Mixed Media. "Over 100 of the most inspiring works from the mixed-media art community are featured under the theme "Dreams Realized," offering readers a level to aspire to. This premier competition book will unite artists from around the globe and will showcase the power of positive intention!"
"Incite" is also now listed for pre-order via Amazon. Preordering prior to publication equals savings of approximately 35% Both books are due to be released at the beginning of October 2013!
