Each annual edition is updated to include the most current contact and submission information for thousands of listings, including greeting card companies, magazine and book publishers, galleries, art fairs, ad agencies and more.”
There is a really great interview on me written by Neely McLaughlin called Embrace Inspiration in the book. It talks about the journey of an artist, inspiration and imagination, art and culture and promoting your creative work in the 21st century! You can read the entire interview here.
I highly encourage you to take the time in the next few weeks to think about your own work. Are you happy with the direction you are moving in? Can you make some changes that will breathe new life into your process and approach? Is there something that you always wanted to try but have not yet done? These are just some of the questions that you should ask yourself. Your responses may shed light on ways in which to improve your creative life and artistic career. To help get your creative engines turning.
