Ring a week--Why?



This is the first blog carnival for RAW 2011, sort of like a web ring but, then again sort of not.

What was my inspiration to join in RAW 2011
The short answer: I wanted to play with the cool kids

The long answer: this delves into much soul searching and art growth, and acceptance, and being a joiner, and stuff like that. It all basically comes down to the short answer: I want to play with the cool kids. I actually go into a bit more detail in a previous blog post: http://zoeowyn.blogspot.com/2011/01/ring-week.html

I am finding why I stay even though I am quite frequently intimidated by the amazingly high levels of craftsmanship and creativity, I am inspired beyond belief. And I am trying new techniques that I may have not considered before. And I am encouraged to actually complete some ideas, and let them be more than just ideas on a piece of paper.

I am so enjoying your work in RAW! It is a very inspiring group with such a variety of artists. I look forward to seeing your designs each week!!

I have enjoyed your work in RAW and you have to keep on going. I felt the same way when I did RAD last year, i was intimidated by the wonderful work of the other artists but this gave me more motivation to keep on going. They were a big support system.
Happy to see you in RAW !
