I want to share this video interview of a UK artist. I love his angst-free descriptions of his painting process and love of the light in his studio, simplifying the complex process of painting into something pleasant and interesting.

For many businesses, it’s the smaller sales in-between the sale of big-ticket items that keep them profitable. Visual artists can benefit from a similar push by tapping into other avenues of income in addition to making sales of paintings and original artworks. Creating designs for the textile industry may be a thought in the back of the minds of many artists as another way of putting their fine art composition and design skills to work, yet have no idea how to get started in that industry.
Artist Vivian Falzetti noticed a gap in instruction in that area as well. So she created a wonderful resource for artists, her iBook, Textile Design Repeats, Tips and Tricks. Early in Vivian’s textile design career she hand-painted her repeat pattern designs. Later, she learned to work with a variety of computer design programs. It is from her experiences and broad knowledge base that she put together her instructive iBook.
Textile Design – Repeats Tips And Tricks
by Vivian Falsetti
is available for download on your iPad with iBook or on your computer with iTunes.
Textile Design – Repeats Tips and Tricks includes 40 Demo Videos and 19 Interactive Lessons which cover the basics of creating repeats and engineered layouts (engineered layouts are designs to fit to a specific size, for example, lamp shades or wall borders) using Adobe® Illustrator… an introduction to the best tools for creating textile designs… tips on how to organize tools on your desktop…samples of various types of repeats with detailed instructions and video demos on how to produce them… charts and formulas …shortcuts, tips and tricks to make creating repeat patterns fast and fun… sources for ongoing learning… timekeeping tips for freelance designers… valuable information and answers.
This iBook bridges the gap between wanting to create salable textile designs and gaining the insider knowledge to make that possibility work for you.
Like all creative people, your process and materials change over time as you work. Or perhaps you’ve experimented with techniques and materials that were not quite right for you. You accumulate lots of art-making supplies and tools, some that just sit on a shelf and take up space as you move on to other projects.
Not every artist lives in a creative community were they can swap art supplies with other artists. There are plenty who don’t in fact. So how do artists upcycle new and used art supplies? Marchelle Brotz, after 30 years of art-making and crafting, faced this dilemma of too many unused materials, as did her friends and associates. Even her accountant didn’t know what to do with a massive supply of yarn his mother left behind when she passed away(and the yarn may have gone to a landfill.)
So Marchelle started her new site, Creative-Resale where artists and crafters can swap, buy, and sell materials that may otherwise go to waste.
To get Creative-Resale off to a lively start, Marchelle is offering FREE LISTINGS to help populate the site.
How to add your listings:
Begin by taking one or more photos of the item you want to sell– (your phone or iPad may be perfect for that). If needed, use Photoshop or any picture enhancement program to make adjustments.
Next, go to the Creative-Resale site, sign in (or sign up) and post your item description, price, then upload the photos.
Shipping can be included in your price or decided later when someone contacts you, or when the delivery destination is not yet known.
Items list for 30 days and you will receive an email at the end of the listing period to ask if you want to renew or not. If you want to renew, click on the link and your listing automatically renews.
Also, sign up for the Creative-Resale newsletter for updates on LIVE, CREATIVE RESALE shows in your area. (Marchelle is always open to suggestions on inexpensive places to rent for sales). Live sales are similar to craft shows, ONLY for art and craft SUPPLIES. This will be something new, a trade show where you can rent a booth, bring your items, and people can shop, touch, see and negotiate— especially helpful for artists with large items to sell.
Creative-Resale is offering free ads for the rest of October. That’s right, it is absolutely free to list your unwanted art supplies and materials and how-to arts and crafts books.
Juicy Canvas has a new project on their blog called “Nightstand”– a collection of nightstand photos around the world. Be part of this! Email your photo + any info you want me to add to: firstname.lastname@example.org / Subject: Nightstand
