New Rings

It is always exciting to have work published in a book. As we live in an increasingly paperless word you might think the thrill of seeing your name in print under an image of your work would diminish over time but not for me! Everyone can post pictures online but having my work chosen for publication alongside artists I admire is a thrill I may never get over. I just got my copy of New Rings by Nicolas Estrada in the mail today and feel honored to have my work published in such impressive company!

The author is a jeweller which made his selections for the book both informed and interesting. Have a look at his work here:

If you are a jeweller Nicolas is working on his next book which will focus on earrings. You can find the call for entry on his website as well as facebook.

Bank on Art

So there is this cool new project in the city where artwork will be posted on special ATM machines. People that use the machines will see work before and after their transaction is complete. At the moment there are two locations for these machines but I am hoping this movement catches on. It seems like the perfect pairing for subliminal messaging to kick it. No matter what though it is an innovative way to integrate art into people's daily lives. Hopefully it will inspire them to pay attention to the fantastic artwork all around the city.
