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.

schopenhauer quote

Every silly boy can tread down a bug,
but all professors of the world can´t create one.
this quote from the german philosopher arthur schopenhauer is written with font pea sheila.
background is a photo i took in the forest, merged with a grunge paper from pink lotty (deviantscrap).
photobooth strip (> challenge "memories" at take-a-word) is googled and taped (>cvisions, scrapbookgraphics).
the beetle (>"insect" challenge at three-muses) is from tangie baxter (scrapbookgraphics).
