So, I don't have anything arty or homey to share today so I thought I'd give a few shouts. First off...congratulations to Jaime Derringer of Design Milk who launched a new "branch" of the Milk empire called Art Milk. There aren't a ton of big blogs out there solely devoted to Art--no chairs, no rugs, no coffee tables--just art--so I think Art Milk will be a well-received addition. Bravo, rah-rah and high-fives, Jaime.
Speaking of Jaime Derringer, she is 1/2 of the creative business firm "Bakery." Together with Erin Lochner of Design for Mankind, the pair offer 12+ years of business expertise in marketing, advertising, P.R., social networking, and website publishing. If you've never heard of Bakery before, do check out their website and blog, you're in for a tasty treat. I just finished up Bakery's first-ever "half-dozen" creative business class, and I can't say enough about it. The class started the same week that Art Wall launched, and it was just the kick I needed to get in gear and get going. Jaime and Erin together have just about every tool you need to start or advance your creative career, from writing a press release to taking master photos. Guess what? Just as my class ended, a new one is cooking up starting Febuary 1st. Fresh students+tested secret ingredients= businesses baked to perfection.
