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 (tuesdays mostly)

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

photo art friday




photo art friday challenges us this week: "For the next edition of Photo Art Friday let's go back to challenging ourselves to try some edits we have been wanting to try, but have felt were too hard or that we just haven't had the time for. The photo art could be produced from following a tutorial or simply the result of some creative play with new photo art tools and techniques."
so what i did this week was exploring brushes. excessively. (if i like doing something, chances are good i will do it excessively;))
now i can say: i have a new obsession! so far i loved textures, now i love textures and brushes!!
for those not infected so far - stay away from this site:
http://designm.ag/resources/75-sets-of-unusual-photoshop-brushes/ because it is infectious. i have warned you;)
well, for my piece i took a background from jessica sprague, placed an edited photo of a seed on it and the rest is all: brushes!! the net, the spider, the number, the danger label... all brushes!! can you tell i´m addicted??!!
and even better: meanwhile i made some cool mailart brushes myself. but more of this in another post to come...

  5. Wonderful - I used to be "brush obsessive", then got into textures and became "texture obsessive" - now I can be both, following your great example!
