It’s that time of the week again where I dive head first into the arts & design folder of my feed reader and resurface with some of the coolest finds. What about you? Find anything new and inspiring in your feed reader this week?
Finding an artist like Elene Usdin reminds me that it’s a great thing to be multifaceted and we don’t always have to concentrate on that one avenue of our work. Expanding and trying it all can produce some seriously fantastic work. See for yourself:
OK, I’ve been quiet long enough. Still working on the redesign but if I don’t get some blogging time in, the guilt will overwhelm me. I hate that I missed last week’s dip into the arts folder of my feed reader so we’re gonna have some inspiration today. What day needs inspiration more than Monday anyhow?
Happy Friday everyone! It seems the general consensus these days is that we’ve all subscribed to more blogs than we could ever possibly read. Take a moment today to browse and remind yourself why you started following them in the first place. (for those of you not subscribing yet, I suggest using Feedly!)
I wish I had room enough to share with you every awesome thing I’ve found. Here’s some highlights from the Arts folder of my feed reader this
The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) and Let’s Save Michigan have issued
an open call to artists, illustrators, and graphic designers for
original posters to inspire Michiganders to revive their state.
The poster should inspire people to take action and do what’s necessary to revive Michigan. The campaign is looking for something “forward-looking, inspirational” and it has to include the phrase “Let’s Save Michigan.”
The contest is open until February 15, 2010 and you can submit your ideas here. The winner will recieve $1,000 (runner up gets $250) plus the winners will have their work displayed during a special reception in the spring!
