09/28/2006: "I won't let it go to my head..."
My friend and fellow librarian Amelia is reviewing a children’s book called “Alaska” (from the Celebrate the States series): “A profile of the biggest state, including its geography, history, economy, population, resources, famous citizens, and places of interest to visit.”
She emailed me yesterday to tell me that I’m quoted in it, just a blurb really, about how extraordinary the people are that I’ve met throughout the state, but what I liked about it is that after the quote they wrote, Elise Tomlinson – Artist.
So, I guess it’s official…I *really* am an artist!
Also, I promised two of the students in that English 311 class (the one where I presented on the joys of blogging) that I would post links to their newly minted blogs. They are very eager to get comments and as many of you know out there, it's hard to get any traffic in the beginning. So, if any of you have a little spare time please check out:
Words from Way Up North
A blog by one of my former LS110 students (she has also purchased one of my paintings so that makes her a young supporter of the arts!)
An artist blog by an amazing Alaskan Native artist who works predominantly with wood and paper. Check out his work and though he doesn't have prices on them yet, the prints are for sale.
Enjoy, and thanks!
