Seth Apter's Book and Call for Artist's Project

Seth Apter is a highly respected artist/blogger in hte mixed media world. "The Pulse of Mixed Media: Secrets and Passions of 100 Artists Revealed" is the title of Seth Apter's book out on the shelves now. It is causing quite a buzz in the creative community. If you haven't visited Seth's blog, jump on over there now. 

His blog and his book focus on community. (He often does joint projects with other artists.) To help celebrate the book tour Seth has announced an open call to artists. He has invited artists to participate in an online project similar to that in the book. In the book he asked the artists many questions they had to answer in words and/or prompts through their art. He is doing a version of this online. Artists are to answer 1, 2, or all 3 questions with words on a 5"x5" square. Since we are artists, hey, we can make it a visual delight.

I'm in. I created three pieces using 140lb watercolor paper. I answered all 3 questions and will be mailing my artwork to him tomorrow. See the following post to view my art and read the answers to the questions.

The questions are:
1. The Artistic Ingredient: If your artwork could talk, what would it say?
2. Passion in Action: Who has the most impact on your creative life?
3. Secrets Revealed: What is one thing you have never shared with the creative community?
