I am in a great place creatively – outputting an incredible amount of artwork lately using a wide range of techniques, in a variety of different formats on all different types of substrates. During this process, I have tapped more and more into 3rd party services that can either create and/or distribute the artwork by laser-cutting/etching it from companies like Ponoko; or that can create my tools like laser-etched wood-cutting blocks and rubber stamps; to DIY book manufacturers like Blurb; my artwork on minicards, stickers postcards, greeting cards, and NoteCards via Moo; and finally screen-printing, local cnc-milling and glass-casting companies.
Because of all this activity I don’t believe my previous website would not be able to accommodate it well – along with other usability issues – so I decided to redo it. During my research phase for the new site, it had been a long time since I looked closely at WordPress, so I gave it another peak and I was surprised by how well I could integrate all of my creative endeavors.
Makes sense so far… update the website using WordPress so that it’s easier to manage, has better usability, etc. etc. But what about my other 2 blogs: In The Mod & bps (brushes.paints.stencils.)? After going back and forth on this… I’ve decided to combine them all into this blog. I will create a new tag for each one in case you only want to follow updates in those categories.
Now it’s time to get back to creating… thanks for tuning in.
