More Me on the Web!

Originally uploaded by Amie Roman

I just created a "lens" on Squidoo - a lens is basically a page with information about something. Surprise, surprise, mine is about printmaking. I invite anyone who is interested in printmaking to check it out - Printmaking - all about techniques, tools & artists. If you have a link you'd like to add, there are lots of sections where you can add stuff:

* Techniques
* How to links
* Printmakers on the web (either a website or blog)
* Printmakers on Flickr
* Printmaking supplies
* Printmaking competitions (or competitions that are open to original art prints)
* Print studios, workshops, ateliers, groups
* Online printmaking communities
* Magazines, publications
* Online sales opportunities
* Books on printmaking through Amazon

Please have a look and add as much content (you do have to be a Squidoo member*) as you can find on the web to do with printmaking! I'd like it to end up being a one stop shop for printmaking artists, and people interested in becoming printmakers, or learning a little about printmaking techniques.

*Basically, all you need to do is give them your email & create a user name; the terms of service are applicable, but pretty much only affect you if you create a lens. You can sign up just to contribute to other people's lenses. If you're not comfortable about signing up to Squidoo, post a comment here about any links you find that you'd like added to the lens.

I also now have a Flickr account, so you can see photos of my under my Flickr username Burnishings.

Annie, I've been reading your blog for a little while so feel I should say Hi! and a big congratulations on setting up a site devoted to printmaking (something I've thought of but never done)! Keep up the good work!

Thanks Marja-Leena! Please feel free to add stuff to the lens - I need some more print techniques defined, but there's lots to choose from to contribute to!

Amie, apologies for my goof with your name! Thanks, I'll give it some thought and see what I can contribute.
