The Making of COSMIC JERRY

It was Huz's Birthday last week and I painted him a groovy portrait of Jerry Garcia. He doesn't often get to see my painting in action so I made a video of the whole process...

Artist Trading Cards with kids

So I've joined 2 fun NING art sites. NING = a place where one can build or join a particular social network. Artists Gary Reef and Jared Knight each a run a fun and engaging site. You can find links to these sites on the top of my sidebar. These 2 artist's networks are a great place for displaying, viewing and discussing artwork, watching videos and tutorials, and socializing with other like-mindeds. I suggested At that we do an Artist Trading Card swap which is now underway. On Wednesday Jared proposed we also start a swap for the kids. Lo was thrilled at the prospect of not only making these fun little cards but also sending them off and receiving some back from kids around the world. She has enjoyed some of the guy's crazy videos as well and thought it would be fun to make our own. So I stuck the camera on the tripod and we went to work. Here's the goofiness that ensued....and my lame attempt at editing. Dea joined in the fun as well and made a few cool cards of her own. Head on over to Jared's NING site to get your kiddos involved in this ATC trade! Adult kids can participate, too!
