"Learn to use Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, Imagekind, and other on-line sites to successfully market yourself and your artwork, with tips, suggestions, & strategies from those who have mastered the art of social networking & on-line marketing."

Video Blog 011 - "Artists & Culture"

Just a few things I've been thinking about lately; mostly want to spark a dialogue with this one. What do you guys think? As fellow artists and art enthusiasts, what do you feel your role is in society?

Slowing Down with Jazz

There's something about jazz music on a cold San Francisco night that is relaxing. Especially after the long holiday, it's a luxury to be back in my studio, chilling out to the awesomeness of Herbie Hancock.

Maybe it's a personal thing, but jazz reminds me to slow down and become more considerate. It also reminds me that improvisation can reap better results. Both of which are part of my goals for the New Year (note that I didn't say "resolution" - I feel like resolutions aren't created, or taken, as seriously).
