Life of Art SitRep #37

Every week, I work towards creating a life of art for myself. This is the journey, full of zigs and zags that are collectively, thankfully, progress.

Play along in the comments with your own pursuits if you'd like. (That's where I cheer you on.)
This week, I
•Shot 33 photographs: self portraits, fall trees/leaves, small town.
•Went to an art museum. Although the artist talk I was supposed to see was ultimately canceled, it was still a cool outing.
•Added 3 lines of customizable products to my store:
Downtown Kansas City shirt
Downtown Kansas City by RocklawnArts
See other t-shirts made on zazzle

•Started designing a black and white calendar.
•Promoted my Rocklawn Arts zazzle store on 8 forum posts/squidoo lenses.
•Worked on my squidoo lens a bit.
•Watched Tips on Using the Filter Gallery Photoshop tutorial.
•Learned [ and ] can be used to adjust brush sizes on the fly in Photoshop.
•Drew 3 sketches, scanned 2.
•Fixed panel on my kinetic sculpture.

How are your pursuits going?

  1. I tried to create a t-shirt thing for RedBubble out of one of my Atlas photos. I thought it would be fun to have an Atlas shirt to wear. It never quite worked out. At some point, I might need to try again - because I still think it's a fun idea.

  2. An Atlas t-shirt would be cool! I haven't tried making a t-shirt on RedBubble. You could try Zazzle. They have loads of shirts, long sleeves, baseball tees, sweatshirts in lots of colors. You can arrange and resize your image(s), print on the back if you like though that does cost more.

    Definitely a fun idea particularly with all the silly photos you have of Atlas. I look forward to seeing the result if you take another stab at it.
