Juggling life through a bi-polar lens. Sometimes up, sometimes down. Mostly trying to tread water in the middle. Creating a likeness to a normal life. Whatever "normal" is...

4 X 6 ARTWORK EXCHANGE- but be quick!

The same people who organise the Sketchbook Tour occasionally have other projects on the go, usually for a fee. But this one is FREE!

You make any kind of artwork, measuring 4 x 6 inches, send it off with a postage-paid envelope, and they'll send you someone else's :)

They are collecting 20,000 artists worldwide for this project. I've just signed up- THERE ARE ABOUT 100 PLACES LEFT so if you want to join in, be fast!

DEADLINE: you have to complete your artwork this month: the postmark on your submission has to be 31st March.

HERE IS THE LINK! 6 x 4 Project

They are doing some work on the website, so you may have to 'refresh' or 'resubmit' a couple of times as the 'can't find that page' message came up a few times when I did it. Went through in the end though, so don't give up!

My sketchbook is still being 'digitised' so isn't on the site yet. However, it is on the shelves at the Brooklyn Art Library with shelf ref. 148L.5-3 :) Strangely, I received an email from someone who had read it. He said he works in Mental Health and wanted to use it. He thought it could be helpful and asked if I had copies to buy :0

Good Lor! I had to sit down!

See! I said you should think about having it published, Helena! Have you seen I Had Black Dog: His Name was Depression by Matthew Johnstone? Your book made me think of it.
