another cool blog...

philippe from belgium was inspired by "they draw and cook" and started up his version ~
"jazz and draw"! he has an interesting twist...illustrate a song by one of your favorite musicians and attach a link to the music. the artist AND the musician are featured...this is the piece i submitted with a link to susana baca singing "summertime"...pass the word + think about submitting something also.

SPOTlight on Dinara Mirtalipova!
don't linger here any on over to her site (here). she is a TDAC favorite, an amazing illustrator, an awesome crafter and the sweetest person ever. (be sure to check out the photos of her kitty matilda and her etsy site). her blog postings make me smile...
