It's always exciting when a friend's book comes out - especially when people you know are featured in it. Double excitement. So I rushed up to Barnes and Noble this morning and snapped up
the last remaining copy of the mixed-media artist: Art Tips, Tricks, Secrets and Dreams From Over 40 Amazing Artists by my chum Seth Apter. (North Light Books). Seth's infectious enthusiasm, gift for friendship, and acute attention to detail make this both a 'how to' book, a celebration of creativity, and...
the book features the work of Elizabeth Bunsen - one of the most creative people on the planet - who does magical things with all sorts of mundane objects -and
my husband, Robert Schmid, whose work is entirely different.
These are but two of the many artists who shared their work, techniques and dreams with Seth. The book is such fun and so full of useful things and thoughts that it will make you rush out and do something wildly creative yourself. At least I hope so.
ps Seth will be signing copies of the book this evening FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15th at
Ink Pad 7th Avenue at 13th St. See you there!
