overly accesible dot com. and the first ever cozyhunter giveaway!

i needed to write a bio statement today for a site that i’m going to be joining as a contributing writer/photographer and after many attempts, drafts, and efforts to be witty in bite-sized, tasty morsels. i realized two things:

1. i really don’t like writing bios.
2. this sums me up:

i tweet. i tumblr. i flickr. i VYou. i pinterest. i blog. i work for SoulPancake.
#isometimesspeakinhashtags

actually, i just realized a third thing:

3. my bio sounds like i spend too much time in cyberspace. uh oh.

/////

in other news, i’ve decided to do something never-done-before on my blog: launch a giveaway!

in recent weeks, i’ve been approached by a few musicians, authors and artists who have very sweetly asked if they could use my blog as a platform to promote their work and/or host giveaways. i was hesitant at first, but the more i thought about it, the more i realized that i really enjoy using my blog as a space to promote creative ventures, and if doing this prompts me to share even more awesomely creative and talented people (and their products) with the world, then that’s a win/win.

i plan on starting with sporadic giveaways and perhaps building up to a consistent giveaway once-a-week. so, to kick off the party, i’m going to give away something that all of you regular visitors to my blog have heard a lot about, and something that i had a little hand in creating – the SoulPancake book.

here are some spreads from the insides:

AND i’m going to make it easy peasy to win a copy. simply leave a comment on this post telling me about an artist you think we should consider featuring in SoulPancke’s next book. on wednesday at 12pm PST, i’ll select a commenter at random and he/she will be mailed a copy of the SoulPancake book.

on your marks, get set, go. :)

ps. if you’d like me to consider hosting a giveaway for one of your creations please email me at:

    FUN! Long time reader, but first time commenter :)

    Please consider featuring Camilla Engman in the next Soul Pancake book.

    jenny holzer :D

  3. Philip Ellis Says:

    Hey, this giveaway looks great!

    I think the style of The Mighty Boosh would really suit the next SoulPancake book – they’re a comedy duo who produce the most fantastic and surreal artwork.

  4. cara ranieri Says:

    michael DaVid Elvestrom is definitely worthy!

  5. mona Says:

    james mollison and his amazing documentary on “where children sleep” (http://www.jamesmollison.com/project.php?project_id=6)

  6. Gabe Says:

    There’s so many to name.
    But I’d definitely would love to see:
    Ben Gibbard, of Death Cab For Cutie
    Dallas Green, of City and Colour
    Tegan and Sara
    Sam Beam, of Iron & Wine
    and Fleet Foxes.

  8. Kimberlee Says:

    So great!! I don’t even know what to add to the next book; I’m already mind-blown!

  9. Leslie Parker Says:

    Given the premise behind SoulPancake, I think it would be very interesting to either get with high school art programs or art colleges, and present a question/title, and let them create something based upon that. So, not, an artist, per se, but a community of artists.

    let it be noted that the fact that you get 26 comments on your blog is kinda…. awesome.

    i like stellah the wonderful (aka kristina griffith). last time i checked, she lived in seattle, but this may or may not be true at this point.

  27. Ashley Says:

    I am going to randomly choose Invader http://space.invaders.paris.free.fr/ because spotting his tiny takes on awesome retro street art always make me smile.

    Or maybe http://www.taraphillips.ca/ She’s an incredibly talented illustrator trying to break into the tattoo world. And a lovely person :)

  28. Mook Says:

    Very cool! I don’t know any artists personally but I would like to see Harvest Creative featured in your book. They are all artists and do some fantastic work. check out their interactive website.

    Hi hi!

    When imfreelykeely was doing her 365 I was completely, utterly and irrevocably obsessed with it. She doesn’t post pictures very often anymore (sadface) but watching her progression & explorations was AWESOME. Bokeh, whaaaat?! Amazingly creative / brave self-portraits. In any case, she is my recommendation. Check her here : http://flickrhivemind.net/User/imfreelykeely/Timeline

  30. Santa Says:

    This is a wonderful idea :)
    I like the works of Fréya Eté http://www.etsy.com/shop/FreyaArt# , Franchesca Jarbusova, her work can be seen in one of the most beautiful animated films I know “Hedgehog in the fog” (In Latvian “Ezītis miglā”) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cj79nVc2ngQ.

  31. Kayla Says:

    So exciting! I love giveaways. :)

    Kyle Dyer (also my boyfriend) just graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design and his artistic style is fun, unique and nostalgic. Here is his website :) http://www.kyledyer.com
