This, my friends is the cover of Seth Apter's new book, which he received from the publisher yesterday. Doesn't it look positively delicious?!? I know he's worked incredibly hard on it and it's going to be fabulous! How could it not be? Seth's the man when it comes to having his finger on the pulse of the wold of mixed media. In a way, his yearly artists' survey, The Pulse is like the glue that holds our community together.
The Pulse of Mixed Media: Secrets & Passions of 100 Artists Revealed is due to hit the shelves in early March 2012 and will be available for pre-order on Amazon soon. If you'd like to be notified when that happens, you can join Seth's mailing list.
I have to confess: I've been keeping a secret. I have work appearing in Seth's book. I haven't been able to say anything about it till now, but yesterday, he sent me an email saying that the editor has approved all the material he chose to include in the book so I could finally tell you! I am extremely proud and honoured to be a part of it. I love the challenge of working within an author's parameters. It always pushes me to grow as an artist, which I find so rewarding and it's always a thrill to walk into a bookstore or library, pick a book or magazine up off the shelf, flip it open and see my contribution inside. It just never gets old!
Congratulation Seth on reaching this important milestone in your journey as an author. At long last, you're in the home stretch. Soon you will have the fruits of your labour resting in your hands. Bravo my friend, bravo!
