A computer terminal is not some clunky old television with a typewriter in front of it. It is an interface where the mind and body can connect with the universe and move bits of it about.
Do you read the e-zine The Art Journal Journey? You should, it is really cool. I feel some of the pages are quite busy, but the content is inspirational and fun. I got a free issue a while back because I’m published in it. Marney emailed me and asked to include my blog post about Black backgrounds.
The May issue (#18) is over sixty pages jam packed with goodness, tutorials, articles and inspiration. This e-zine is created by Marney Makridakis of magic Artella Land. In the shop you can also find other art related publications.
The zine is all about ART: A – Advice and Inspiration for Creative Well-Being, R – Resources for Art Journalers (featuring product reviews especially relevant for art journalers) and T – Tools, Tips, and Techniques for Your Pages. It’s available for 7 USD from here. This is how my pages look in it;
I really like the information tag Try this that you find on quite a few pages. Including “paper looking” items in print is so cool, I want to experiment with that in some form soon.
After being published in the book Craft Corp I think I need to be adding a page to the blog where I show all the various places that I am published at. I am always impressed and quite jealous when I see those kind of pages, but now the iHannaness is spreading in the world. I feel proud because mostly it has been me sticking out my nose and saying; Hey, look at what I’ve got!
Though sometimes you are asked to be featured, and that is an honor in its own way, knowing people like what you do. I only wish “the asking” would be followed by a pay check. That would be even more nice.
A while back I got a flickr message that a company wanted to use a photo of mine in their “app”. I did not get payed but my name and a link to my flickr page is featured with the photo, so I thought it was a fun thing to say yes to. My photo is from the Day of the Dead exhibition at Etnografiska in Stockholm. It is now featured in the app Schmap that I think you can download for free to your iPhone if you are a lucky owner (I wish i was!).
If you are coming to visit the capital of Sweden, Stockholm, you should read iHanna’s guide to Stockholm (with just a few of my favorite places), and also Decor8’s great Stockholm guide by guest poster Joanna Swanson. Recommended!
