social media

i have my reasons why i´m NOT at facebook or twitter. and if you pin my work on pinterest, please make sure to link it back to me by taking the button on my side: that will bring you to my board with all my art-links. thanks for respecting that.

i consider my blog to be my "artistic diary" - so i can recap what i made and which influences i got (exhibitions etc).

currently i try to publish frequently once in a week (mondays/tuesdays mostly)

People with a Google+ account: please leave a direct blog link, otherwise i can´t visit you.

speech of chief seattle 1854

starting with preparations for NBC i stumbled across some figures i have to order...LOL! this will gonna be a *huuuge* project i suppose;) so it will run "in the background", working on it from time to time, and meanwhile i will make some other things parallel.

one book i started yesterday (collecting things i have therefore in a box:) is a native-american themed one: i wanna concentrate on excerpts of the speech of chief seattle in 1854, which is such a beautiful statement on the environment. there are some variations on this speech to be found in the web, i decided to take the text which is used in the film "home" (1972).

the perfect pictures that match the theme should be the ones from edward s. curtis. i always loved these pics (may they be a idealization or not...). they are all sepia-toned and i have some excess fabrics in brown from sewing my curtains last year, so these should go fine together.

on the title page i will use a dreamcatcher (thanks god i´m buying things whenever i can get them:)
might use some of the fabric leaves (fall-tones) i have, maybe stamped with related images.
and i have quite some beads for embellishments.

i think i will add the text in german, so i can take this for visual aids in my school lessons (i do educate religious affairs, and this wonderfully fits the theme of creation).

so, off to concentrate on the text and divide it into parts for the pages...
