I always love it when people comment with great ideas!! My new Facebook page stems from a comment on a recent post. I created a page for those working through the lessons in my latest book, CREATING Art at the Speed of LifeThis is where you can share your own work from my book, ask questions, get feedback (even privately if want to message me for a personal critique) get information on supplies and substitutions and really anything book related. I’ve loved seeing the work that’s already being shared  and hope many more of you will join in the fun of this online class-like setting I’m creating. N

Did you know you can also share your work on AMAZON?!! I’d love it if you did and also if you have a minute to leave a short review or feedback for my book it’s very much appreciated!!

I hope to see you on my CREATING Art at the Speed of LIfe Facebook page and if you want to follow all of my art happenings I also have  Pam Carriker’s Art page. I’ll have some exciting news to bring you in the near future there so follow along to get the latest!

Here’s a sneak peek at upcoming releases you’ll want to stay tuned for:

Summer is almost here and it’s a great time to work through the 30 lessons in CREATING Art at the Speed of Life so I hope you’ll join in to stay creative and motivated with your art!

A Peek Inside Creating Art at the Speed of Life

I don’t know if you know this or not but I actually made a journal full of all of the lessons in my second book, Creating Art at the Speed of Life. This journal is where all of the projects in the book came from. I take this journal with me when I teach journaling classes so some have been able to actually look through it in person, but for those who can’t I thought I’d share a few of the pages with you.

I often get tagged in a photo of someone else’s journey through my book and there is no greater thrill than seeing someone enjoy my book!! That’s the whole reason behind sharing in this way, to hopefully help others on their own creative journey.

I would love to see even more journal pages inspired by the lessons in my book! Did you know that you can actually post pictures of those pages on the books amazon page? You can, and I’d love to invite you to do so!! There are a couple of pictures there already, but it would be awesome to see more!! And while you’re there I’d really appreciate it if you’d take a minute to leave a review for the book. I get so many people telling me they love it, but the most helpful thing is to leave a review to share with others.

The Art of Giving!!!

Joanne’s book is at a glance full of eye catching beauty, but as one digs deeper and begins to read, you see how gifted a teacher she is as well as being an uber talented artist. She guides, encourages, and instructs in a way that allows you to experience your own personal growth as you go through the lessons. This is not a ‘copy Joanne’s lettering style’ type of book, but rather instruction and motivation to discover your own personal style of lettering and isn’t that what true artists want? To find their own artistic voice.

The book has loads of inspiration and instruction and I myself am greatly motivated to embrace my own handwriting (not pretty!) and see where these exercises can take me.

Joanne has hit the ball out of the park with this book and it’s a must have for any artists library.

And to celebrate this awesome new book, I’m going to GIVE AWAY a copy of it to one of the lucky people who leave a comment on this post!!!! I’ll draw a name on Wednesday, noon Central Time.

Got Pencil?

To get better at anything you need to put in the time. People often ask how long it takes me to create some piece of art and the answer for drawing a face is 10-15 minutes plus 40 years. I’ve been drawing and playing with art since I was a child. I’m never ‘done’, never felt like I knew everything there was to know about creating art, and always want to keep moving forward. Even if I only have a few minutes here or there, there’s always time to do a quick little sketch. Most of my sketches are rough, not finished graphite masterpieces, but they provide a structure to make future artwork from, so it’s not only a great way to wind down at the end of the day, but a great beginning for another day.

And the Winner Is…
