News and Tidbits for 2008

The new year is here, and I’m trying to get back into blogging mode. If you have a suggestion for a tutorial or article or video, please send them in.

Until I get a new post written, here’s a few miscellaneous things that have popped up on my radar in the past week or so: named one of the “Must-read Art Blogs for 2008”

This honor came from, another blog that I respect tremendously. If you haven’t visited it yet, now is a good time to get a head start on a new year of great art tips, product reviews, and featured artists. Thanks, EmptyEasel!

Axiotron’s Modbook is Now Shipping

The Modbook was announced nearly a year ago, and I’ve been drooling ever since. If you haven’t heard of it, it is a tablet-style MacBook computer. You can see a video review for it at With all the digital painting I do, I’m seriously considering if I can afford what is essentially a $3000 sketchbook. Until then, if any of you out there are lucky enough to own one, or have at least tried it out, PLEASE let me know!

Nominate for the Bloggies

Voting is now open for the 8th Annual Weblog Awards. I thought it would be fun to try, so if you have a moment, enter me in for “Best Art or Craft Weblog.”

And a Big THANK YOU…

…to everyone who has donated over the past few weeks. It really made my holiday. I will try my best to make the blog bigger and better in the coming year!
