Roberta Baird ~ Postcards

I just ordered my postcards from Vista Prints.... I updated my business cards too.... new telephone number! Then I realized I forgot the dash in the phone number. I guess that's what happens when you're working at 2:00 AM. Sheesh! I usually send postcards quarterly.... fingers crossed... but I'm stepping it up this year....  fingers and toes crossed!

Thank you Diandra for setting up this website. I hope we can all get to know one another in the Houston area!

Changing styles?

Bridgette Mongeon here.

I am new to the group. A writer and a sculptor. I have several things published but nothing for this age category. My hold up? I won't let anyone else illustrate my own work. So I am trying to make a comitment to work towards illustrating my own writing.

I have been a sculptor for 30 years and have not done true illustration in a long time. I'll have to post some of my older work, but I have to get them scanned. They are copied into slides- that shows you how long ago I was an illustrator.

My brain just seems to work in 3d now that I have spent all of these years doing sculpture and so I am trying to use tools like zbrush and mudbox ( digital sculpting tools) to help me illustrate. It seems to help my brain work better to think in the 3d space. To loosen up with the program I have created some quick sketches 30 minute sketches. So I am going to chime in here and add those.

I have more in this little video if you want to check it out. I created it to show the process. thanks for letting me share. I'm sure I'll have more soon. http://www.creativesculpture.com
