Some highlights from the past week on Twitter.

Ordering 100% recycled presentation notebooks

Be sure your contact info is EASY to find on your website and blog–IF you want to sell your art

Always provide more than 1 way for people to contact you. Don't depend solely on email.

@gapingvoid Referred to his buyers as “users” and pointed to this interesting blog post he had written previously to explain it further. I related it to something I wrote previously, but am still not crazy about the word “user.” It's an interesting premise.

@gapingvoid Still not fond of being an art “user.” To me, “user” implies that it's functional. I'm not seeing it.

@gapingvoid @clintavo Just went back and read everything and I embrace the premise of art as social object, tho still don't like “user.”

@gapingvoid @clintavo I wrote previously about artists forming a community around their art | starting dialog http://bit.ly/2VcUhv

Wanting to book a couple more workshops for the fall. Portland still a possibility. Would also like to do NC, GA, or SC.

[I received invitations to consider Arizona, Georgia, Texas, North Carolina, Canada, Massachusetts and more. Wanna  host a workshop?]

@JuliaKirt Yea for talking about biz skills to BFA grads at OU. Do u think they should offer it BEFORE April of their senior year? (Snark)

Fed up with Apple Mail hyperlinking URLs before I'm finished typing them out. Don't see it as a preference. Anyone know anything about this?

@EllenSoffer Your new postcard looks fantastic! I know u'll sell that ptg just like u've sold the other ptgs on the fronts of yr postcards!

  1. On the subject of recycled paper, if you Google ’embedded seed paper’ you get a bunch of companies making paper that is embedded with wildflower seeds, that can be printed or written on, & when the person gets it they can plant the paper & the flowers grow…(the paper biodegrades)…
    Also, elephant dung paper, made of, well, real elephant dung, is also novel & proceeds go to caring for the elephants…(also a few suppliers online)…

    Sari: I’ve been the lucky recipient of notes written on “seeded paper.” It’s cool stuff, although I can’t say I ever tried to plant it.

    Eric: Follow away!
