April ContestPantone Color of the Year:
Every year Pantone selects a color of the year. For 2015, it's Marsala, a beautiful, rich red color reminiscent of wine, berries and desert places. So, even if you're not into things like trends or fashion, you might agree that it's a lovely, inspiring color.
Check out the Color of the Year: Marsala blog I wrote last week about this color. There's lots of inspiration for color combos and yarn ideas! Remember any type of project is acceptable for the contest, so be your most creative with it.
April ChallengePrehistoric Times
You know...cavemen, dinosaurs and all that! Any type of project using the theme will be acceptable for this Challenge!
The Monthly Challenge is not a contest.
It's just a way to encourage inspiration (and use up some of that yarn stash!).
Only work created during the Challenge month is accepted (new submissions only).
A new folder will be provided for you to submit your work into. Please make sure to add your work to the Challenge folder so it can stand out!
All Challenge entries will receive a llama and a feature in my journal at the end of the month.

The Procrastinator: A Day In The Life
The Procrastinator A Day In The Life
Procrastination is the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time, sometimes to the "last minute" before a deadline.
I wrote the title for this piece three weeks ago.
So, it’s Friday night. Work week over. Tomorrow I get to write my own mate
5 Literary Journals - Publish Your Writing
No More Excuses Submit Your Writing To These Journals
Many of us — especially writers — find ourselves buried beneath a growing pile of books we’ve been meaning to read but haven’t been able to find the time. More depressing is the even longer list of book titles we know we need to read. The pile gets higher, the list gets longer every day. There’s always another seminal classic we haven’t gotten around to. It

Fan Art Friday: Gargoyles
FAN ART FRIDAY: Stone By Day, Warriors By Night
We are GARGOYLES
One thousand years ago…
Well more like 20 years ago Disney’s animated series Gargoyles hit the airwaves and captivated the hearts and minds of youngsters across the globe. Created by Greg Weismen, the show followed a clan of gargoyles lead by Goliath after they awaken in New York from a thousand-year-old spell-induced slumber. They meet and befriend NYPD detective Elisa Maza who helps them adapt to the new world th
Collection: Ends Of The Earth
Ends of the Earth
The photographs in the following gallery look like CGI artists’ conceptions for alien planet settings in science–fiction movies.
But the locations are all places to be experienced right here on Earth. So much of our world is becoming “flyover” territory in our high–tech mobile society that amazing places like those in these studies are becoming lost to us. Take a long look at each of these landscapes and then ask yo
Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!
'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi
