Things That Changed Other ThingsThe Sketchbook Project 2011 Tour was created by the Arthouse Co-op in Brooklyn, NY. It is the fifth tour with many themes for the artists to choose from. Iaian Greenson (DoctorBalls), from Toronto, Canada, chose the theme "Things That Changed Other Things". His sketchbook explores this theme with 73 pages of beautiful artwork. As Iaian's sketchbook tours the US he will be notified each time a person looks at his work of art. Each journal on the tour will have a barcode and will be checked out by the viewer like a library book. Eventually his sketchbook will make it back to the Brooklyn Art Library to be part of their permanent collection.Check out the sketchbook on the tour if you can. Otherwise you can see Iaian's sketchbook here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/58747210N07/sets/72157625905407970/Catch the sketchbook on tour:Brooklyn, NYBrooklyn Art LibraryFebruary 19-27, 2011Reception: Saturday, February 19th12:00-10:00pm(refreshments startin

Whoa...!!! :-) + Violet FeaturesChecked my messages this morning to be greeted by someone congratulating me on the senior status. I have to admit, I was happily surprised. And it is an honor to have it happen on Deviant's birthday.Thanks to everyone who stopped to say congrats. And thanks to everyone who watches me and my art.Special thanks to Senecal. I have mentioned it before, but he has been a huge influence on me over the past few years. One thing he has always stressed to me is having a sense of community. I have tried other online art communities out there, and I have to say, dA has been one of the best. All of the art and the people have really been an inspiration.Okay, enough of all that. Some violet features for you all! Cosmos by Slushy-Pye Untitled 02 by lizdunfee
Diagram of a Scam LetterRecently I had someone send me a note on Etsy expressing interest in purchasing one of my artworks, "Jupiter Surfaces". At first I was excited to make a sale, but then I began to analyze the note. I thought, I wonder who this is that they need to be so private about the sale
um, answer is that it is a scam to get my money.I thought I would share this, with a little break down of it, for all of you who sell your art or crafts online."RE: Jupiter Surfaces, Item # xxxx:I am interested in the immediate purchase of your item and will be make payment via cashier check/money order, my private shipping company will handle the shipping, but before payment will be made i need to be sure of who i am dealing with if you are going to be honest and sincere throughout the transaction. A certified cashiers check is cash-able the same day,there is going to be an excess fund on the check ,the excess fund is meant for the private shipping company who will come to your place for pick up of the ite

CONTEST PORTRAITS - drawings and paintings :icongroupsplz::iconsoulcollectors: Hello to all Soul Collectors I'm sponsoring a contest with the theme "Portraits" at the group Soulcollectors.What do I want to see? Good art, amazing portraits, all kind of traditional or digital portraits. But what are portraits?"Portraits are works of art that record the likenesses of humans or animals that are alive or have been alive.""Portrait is a likeness of a person, especially of the face, as a painting or a drawing."- So, can you submit fantasy, an imaginary face?Yes!- So, can you submit a drawing of a body in which we can not see the head?No!- And can you submit a full body drawing?
Why you not doctor?"Why you not doctor?""You doctor yet?""Doctor... good." If you are an immigrant of any kind, or know people who are the children of 1st and maybe even 2nd generation immigrants, you have heard their parents ask them this question time and time again. It probably made you wonder? "What's the infatuation with being a doctor?" Well, it's not so much an infatuation with being a medical practitioner. It's more a desire that immigrant parents have to want their children to be successful and well respected in the new country. Growing up, I was a pretty inquisitive child. I love to ask questions, take things apart to see how they worked, and I received good marks in school. Naturally, my 1st-gen immigrant parents took this as a sign of, "she is gonna be a doctor." And frankly, I didn't mind the thought. Science classes were my close favorites next to art classes and I loved reading theories, so the idea of being a practitioner of medicine didn't se
