Seth Godin, Free Stuff and Glorious Failure
When Nicola Holgate, an old art school friend, asked me to put aside my slumping for a while,(see previous post) and give of what I do best - make art - I rediscovered my inner juju and a whole lot of other good stuff.
It's For FREE. For a good cause. And I said, YES!
The Journey of Hope, Botswana, is a non-profit organisation raising awareness of breast cancer and the journey of hope it offers. They had tasked her with designing new T-Shirts for their rally's and being swamped with free work on the back-burner, she naturally thought of me...
It's a funny thing, I just LOVE seeing my prints on fabric. So of course I said: Yeah! I'll do it! : )
I have more ideas brewing in my mind, though...and then it occured to me!
Anybody -artist or designer or just good at putting stuff together out there want to join in? Nici would be delighted to hear from you and see whatya got! The more diverse and interesting this turns out to be, the better.

Then an Angel came via Twitter and led me to Subvert Magazine where I found this spirit lifter of an interview with Seth Godin on Failing Gloriously. Check it out here.
Then read this for REALLY PRACTICAL ways to get my 'slump' undone...and zappo! I too can join the Rich and Famous Artists club ; )
Up NEXT: FINALLY!!! A video of my work process on a painting/design. Just so you can see how much is hand drawn and how much is computer design.
If you want to see your designs on a T-SHIRT and support a worthy cause:
