Sometimes a couple of artists get together and don't expect much from the meetings, except maybe some cafe sketches and coffee to be sipped. Sometimes those meetings can blossom into something wonderful. This is how Put it on Paper was born. Jane and I started to meet to draw and drink coffee. 2 artists needed an outlet from their work lives and started to talk and get great ideas.

Jane and I might be as different as artists can be but together we motivate and inspire one another. I'm totally stoked that our s artists dates spawned something as wonderful as Put it on Paper. I hope you think it's great too. I hope it inspires you to make an artist date with a friend.

I want to take a moment to thank our writers:
Eveline Timeless

Jazmine SirensIdyll
An'Angelia Thompson

And Ted Micu for letting me pester him with questions in such a way that shaped up to be a great interview.

Our advertisers for believing we could do this, even we had doubts:
Peg English- Peg’s Kitchen
Moira of Crafty Moira and Key Lime Supply
Kevin of Fountain Pen Revolution
Christy of GulfSprite
Rhomany of Rhomany’s Realm
Tam of Willowing

Thank you all so much for your support as we put this first issue together. We’ve learned a lot about running a small zine, we’ve come up with some more ideas for issue 2 and think that issue 2 will be even more awesome.

Challenge! Things I Couldn't See

When I looked at the sky to shoot the picture below I couldn't see the 5 perfect cotton ball clouds in the sky, the sun was imply too perfect and bright. The camera made them visible.

Have you ever had perfect things that were hidden due to the blinding light of something even more perfect.

*I'm not encouraging you to take any sort of illegal pill or any legal pills against ways they are meant to be taken. It's metaphoric, not literal. Pretend to take a pill.
