Hello Again in 2013

hello again in2013

Hello, again. Yes, I know that the last article posted here was over a year ago. It is not because I wanted it that way. Granted, Alison*s Art, Inc. and Alison*s Heirloom Projects had to be put on the back burner. But not for lack of love, interest or passion for DESIGN | FOOD | HEALING.

It is because there have been so many projects demanding the front burners, in fact ‘all burners’. They have involved social media, learning it and using it. I love this new means of communication and sharing information. But there was something missing, nurturing the creative spirit in me, using my hands beyond the keyboard.

That is not to say that social media is not creative. I have been very creative with the projects that have taken me from Alison*s Art, Inc. to dba Marketing Bytes including:

Working on socia media graphics for or as:
The Social Media Marketing Graphic Designer
Page Cover Mastery

Blog writing for or as:
Digital Ethos.org
The New York Graphic Design Examiner

Covering non-profit and timely activities:
Hurricane Sandy
Take Heart Association Project

Creating a facebook archive for all my project pages:

Now it is time to give the other side of my brain a good dunking, a full-fledged dowsing in free-flowing, self-expressing, like a swim in cool clear spring like waterfall. Many of the creative tools I have used in the past have found new expressions. They want to be share with you for your education and enjoyment. Feel free to add your own spices or variations on the recipes provided. Consider these ‘open source’ resources. Use what I have provided, share them and build upon them.

Between Alison*s Blog and the pages of the website section, there will be many expressions and examples of my new endeavors. Enjoy them. You can also read curated posts on Alison*s Art Online Magazines in the right hand column.

And, please do let me know what you think of what you find here. Comments, suggestions, questions and your own creations are always welcome.
