Some highlights from the past week on Twitter.

Ordering 100% recycled presentation notebooks http://www.sustainablegroup.net

Be sure your contact info is EASY to find on your website and blog–IF you want to sell your art

Always provide more than 1 way for people to contact you. Don't depend solely on email.

Twitter-wing

@gapingvoid Referred to his buyers as “users” and pointed to this interesting blog post he had written previously to explain it further. I related it to something I wrote previously, but am still not crazy about the word "user." It's an interesting premise.

@gapingvoid Still not fond of being an art "user." To me, "user" implies that it's functional. I'm not seeing it.

@gapingvoid @clintavo Just went back and read everything and I embrace the premise of art as social object, tho still don't like "user."

@gapingvoid @clintavo I wrote previously about artists forming a community around their art | starting dialog http://bit.ly/2VcUhv

Wanting to book a couple more workshops for the fall. Portland still a possibility. Would also like to do NC, GA, or SC.

[I received invitations to consider Arizona, Georgia, Texas, North Carolina, Canada, Massachusetts and more. Wanna  host a workshop?]

@JuliaKirt Yea for talking about biz skills to BFA grads at OU. Do u think they should offer it BEFORE April of their senior year? (Snark)

Fed up with Apple Mail hyperlinking URLs before I'm finished typing them out. Don't see it as a preference. Anyone know anything about this?

@EllenSoffer Your new postcard looks fantastic! I know u'll sell that ptg just like u've sold the other ptgs on the fronts of yr postcards!

  • On the subject of recycled paper, if you Google ‘embedded seed paper’ you get a bunch of companies making paper that is embedded with wildflower seeds, that can be printed or written on, & when the person gets it they can plant the paper & the flowers grow…(the paper biodegrades)…
    Also, elephant dung paper, made of, well, real elephant dung, is also novel & proceeds go to caring for the elephants…(also a few suppliers online)…

  • Great, more artists on Twitter to follow :D

    Thanks!

  • Sari: I’ve been the lucky recipient of notes written on “seeded paper.” It’s cool stuff, although I can’t say I ever tried to plant it.

    Eric: Follow away!
