Kids, if you want to piss off your parents show interest in the arts

In them we can follow the movement of their ideas. We can be part of the creative process that led them to switch freely from one work to another or to return again and again to lines already crossed out and altered many times.

"every child is an artist. the problem is how to remain an artist when he grows up"-picasso

stuck in limbo? where to start? create a planner that is solely for your art planning. keep cut-outs, scribbles, and a list of projects small or lifetime that you want to achieve. Share them here, share your progress, share your hopes and fears. I also think networking is an outcome of this comm that we can all benefit from, so network!

think. design. finish. inspire. think. design. finish.

1. Each member will have ONE MAIN post (A Portfolio Post). A list of members will be listed on the front page in the sidebar, listed alphabetically.

2. For each project, create an lj-cut to allow easy reference. SEE EXAMPLE .

prepare for the web and use your own discretion on size. usually 500px wide does fine.

no hotlinking! use your own service- lj, photobucket, flickr, etc
