Today I’m most honored to have The Altered Page as the host site.
Seth Apter’s Altered Page has become a much anticipated destination in the artful blogging community. He continually engages his readers with exciting challenges, brilliant art and interesting features. Seth is known to scratch beneath the surface and so reading his blog is full of insightful happy surprises. His collaborations are legendary and his art sells so quickly I rarely get to his etsy shop to even see it before it’s sold.
He paints, assembles wonderful assemblages (yes I’m very silly!), does mind blowing collage and as you might guess creates altered books extraordinaire! He even has his own zine, The Pulse!
I’m sure you’ll agree that the coolness of his upcoming book can at this point only be imagined. And as if all THAT wasn’t enough he is also featured on the Create Mixed Media site in the “Your Blog, Your Way” series of which you can see part 1 here. Of all the artists I know in blog land, I think Seth is most perfect for writing about this subject because he comes up with the most amazing ideas and events. When I’m visiting The Altered Page I’m usually wondering to myself (mostly with my mouth gaping open no doubt) how the heck he comes up with these wonderful inspirations! Wow I’m even making my own head spin ala Exorcist so I can imagine how you are feeling taking this all in. This is one talented guy!!!
If for some crazy reason you haven’t happened to visit Seth’s blog yet then I can guarantee that you will be very glad you visit there today!
FEATURED ART OF THE EPOXY PERSUASION
I love love love love love Liz McGrath! And she is in my book two!!! I mean twice. Yay! Perhaps you can tell like so many other artists in the book that she is a big inspiration to me.
That the heck is this creature? I have no idea but like many of her things once I see I want it most severely. I’d be most happy pulling this along with me on walks near and far.
Happy Cisco de Mayo and pass the Two Equis brewskis please occifer. I mean officer (hic!). Enjoy your day and please drive safe. ; )
