If you're new to Art Journal Every Day, there is a short introduction here. All of the previous posts can be found archived here. There is a flickr group for sharing right here. Remember, it's just ten minutes of nourishing your creative self every day! No need to finish anything or even like it. If you've done some art journaling this week and you've blogged about it, or put it on flickr, please leave a link in the linky list at the end of this post. Thanks!
I'm a big fan of communing with other people who love the same things I do -- namely art! So when a new meetup group (meetup is a website that allows you to find other people with the same interests for in-person meetups) flashed into my inbox called "The Manhattan Mixers," I had to give it a try!
The organizer is named Rosie.
I used a copy of a hand drawing that Pat (to my right in the second photo) brought with her.
We talked and made art and had a generally good time! I was fascinated that although we were working in a very public venue, not a single person came over to see what we were doing. I guess that's disinterested New Yorkers for you!
After the meetup I was so inspired that I came home and sat down and played in my art journal for several hours. I just couldn't walk away. How awesome is that?
Have you ever been to an art journal meetup? I highly recommend it!
Here is this week's linky list:
Thanks for stopping by!
