Are you an artist wanna-be, or a Frustrated Artist who knows there can be more, oh-so-much-more to an artful life? It might be worthwhile for you to head over to Amy's Pikaland blog to check out her brand new Pika Bootcamp. There are two course offerings, the first is called Making Your Mark, and is about helping the reluctant artist (you?) to express yourself through art. The second course is called How to Survive and Thrive as an Artist Online. (That pretty much says it all!)
I think Amy is pretty awesome when it comes to helping artists get where they want to be. If you need further proof, check out her Pika Good To Know Project, with her series of Good To Know zines. (I'm a featured artist in Issue #6). She put together an offering of advice and inspiration on several topics important to artists and designers. It's very timely to any artsy fool (like me!) making their way through this sometimes-less-than-art-loving world. In other words, helps to get that darn negativity out of your head... something that all artists struggle with. So, give Pika Land a visit, and check things out over there. You'll be glad you did!
