I've been participating in the #YourTurnChallenge with Seth Godin's organization. The challenge is to post every day for seven days. (I do this regularly on my main blog http://amokarts.com anyway) On Tuesday my blog had 400 hits which is about 10 times what I usually get. I am doing all seven posts on creativity. Today's I think would be really helpful to a lot of people.

Those are great David!
I've always been a fan of Big Daddy Roth and Von Dutch!
I've been having some fun lately. I hear it's called Lowbrow art but I love it. It's art by guys like Ed Big Daddy Roth, Von Dutch, Von Franco and on and on. 60s and 70s car art. Here are a few pieces I've done recently. What do you think?
I have not been here in over a year. I went to the Artists Arise conference in Oct 2013. When I returned school got intense and I burnt out on cartooning. I took an 8 month hiatus and then got back into it. A goal for this year is releasing a cartoon worship DVD. The first version will be a little rough around the edges as far as sound quality but still beautiful art and music. Hopefully the exposure and sales it generates will help me build a fan base and raise the money I need for higher quality DVDs in the future.
I graduated from my TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) graduate certificate program in Dec. I got the degree but not state licensure because although I passed the required tests I did not meet a few of the requirements during my student teaching. This was discouraging but during the course of student teaching I realized I did not want to teach in the US. I had been successful as a teacher in Asia and teaching English abroad better suits my skill sets (creative, linguistic). I am planning to move to Thailand this year and be a cartoonist by day and English teacher by night.
One of the goals I set for this year was to create 12 new products to begin earning some passive income. I have set up a new website called http://dweisscreative.com. I wanted to test out a download program, so I generated a simple art book using symmetry and grids to help young artists with their observation skills. I call it Making Faces. I'm pretty happy with how it all worked out. Check it out if you get the chance. http://www.dweisscreative.com/uncategorized/new-product-from-dweiss...
Hi, I just started a group called Creative Ministry and I was wondering if you might be interested in joining. http://www.48days.net/group/creativeministry
I am not an artist, however I have been a huge Dan Miller, and Dave Ramsey fan for a few years. I have a longtime friend that I recently found out quit his job, and is making a go at making an income just from his Art. I told him about this community, but thought I would share his story here for him.
I am far from an art expert, but I do know that I really like some of his paintings, and think that he has a real shot at realizing his dream. You can take a look at his work at:
His Facebook art page is:
Thank you for looking, and if you like his work, please help share his work.
I found an interesting article on critique and criticism:Don't Take It Personally.
I'm going to be beefing up my portfolio in preparation in hoping to be getting my Masters. Would you guys offer constructive criticism and ideas for projects to use?
Here is the other illustration I did for the church function:
Anybody trying Patreon.com? Wonder if it is viable?
