No clue... but a good question.

This occurred before there was recycling (the late 50s). Also at the time, drinking alcohol and cigarette smoking were not considered hazards to the fetus.

I don't see any difference between "art" and "craft".

If it's done creatively... it's art.

Holds true for dance. When I dance, it's fun... but it's not art. When a "professional" dances... it's an art.

Just wondering... As a freelance graphic designer, I used to use magic markers to design my comps... that is until the computer changed the biz.

Interesting. I've also read articles that look at a manic depression and creativity. It's a sad bind. Some artists contemplate suicide when they are depressed and their meds would help them... but at the same time, their meds take the "edge" off their creative impulses. Damned if you do, damned if y...

"there is also the level of aspiration that is very important"


I think that artists (or artisans ) are motivated by an internal drive to push themselves... always trying do better.

I've always told my kids that a "singer HAS TO sing and a dancer HAS TO dance" to explain this drive.

We have people that do art as a hobby... they can call them selves artists or an artisan. We have people that earn a living doing art... we can call them artists or an artisan too.

Copper trinkets made using a penny for a blank should use older pennies (20-30 yrs? -someone knows) which are copper without zinc inside. If your Lincoln Memorial penny has a date before 1982, it is made of 95% copper. If the date is 1983 or later, it is made of 97.5% zinc, with a thin copper coati...

I had a camelback... but got rid of it the following year because I found that I was drinking less water with it.

I make it a point to drink water every time I stop my bike. Drinking from a liter bottle, I found I was taking in more water than sipping from a camelback.

Looks nice. The only problem i forsee is printing the micro-lines. If I am not mistaken they use those microfine lines so that your average inkjet cannot print them correctly.

I'd like to throw my two cents in. First: what is an artist. I feel that an artist is someone who has an overwhelming urge to create something in any type of medium. Some artists create "found art". They see something that strikes them in an internal manner and want others to see it in a new light. ...
