Hi all,
This thread was set up originally as a "collection" center for all the excellent, fun, and creative web sites. If you look at the number of times this thread has been viewed, it is the by far the most popular. There have been quite a few posts in the past few weeks where people list off a site people should visit, and it would be nice if the original posters would copy their URL information into this one. "Someday", I hope to create an actual page with all the links and maybe a short description of what you can expect to find. But, right now I am trying to learn how to use the new Adobe Golive CS2 program and I won't be making new pages until I get all the new features figured out.

That airbrush site is really nice, so don't miss out on visiting it.

Here's one more image from his site:

An interesting find. Canadian Museum of Science and Industry has a very interesting collection of decalcomania (decalomania). Well illustrated and well written history of the technique.

Another great read...from my point of interest anyway...The good old days?

http://fortress.uccb.ns.ca/search/HG05_3.htm

Hope some enjoy...

This site is a little difficult to navigate. Also the English is translated and a little stilted. Click through it all if you have time. Some informational gems hidden in the text. Wish I had a drying room like the one shown.

I watched a TV show on PBS HD last night called "America's Heartland".
The show featured John Cerney, an incredible pictorial painter.

enjoy!

Mike,

Those trade advertisements and pictures are very interesting. Since I enjoy searching out my family history, I decided to see if there was a Fred Ronstadt listed in the Census records. Sure enough, the first listing is in Tucson City, Arizona for 1910. He is listed with his wife, six children, and an assistant. His trade is listed as manufacturing and the product as wagons. I'll try to post a link to the census site if I can. He is the third family down the page.

This link worked for me so I hope others can view it.

I think these are interesting sites.

At least I hope so as my wife and I have put a great deal of energy into them, even though we are meant to be retired :)

www.edenworkshops.com is a site devoted to the more unusual aspects of craft bookbinding, I have written several manuals for bookbinders and they are free to download.

www.gold-vault.com is a site for the novice gilder and has two free manuals to download, one aimed at gilding onto leather, the other concerned with achieving various antique and distressed finishes to faux gold leaf

Thank you

Richard & Margaret Norman

I think my two sites are good from the artists point of view anyway.

www.edenworkshops.com devoted to the book arts

www.gold-vault.com devoted to gilding

There are several sign painting photo collections on flickr:

Hundreds of signs and plates from lettering books on the depressionpress set!
http://www.flickr.com/photos/depression ... 360407257/

This is all about a great Irish signwriter, Keven Freeney:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/gentlemanofletters/

These folks photograph signs and post them. 1300 so far...
http://www.flickr.com/groups/handpainte ... the-world/

The depressionpress one kind of negates the need to buy books on the topic...
Hope you like'm

I was listening to the Jeremy Vine radio programme yesterday and they were talking about a war artist called Mike Reagan from the USA.
This guy has been sketching faces of our fallen soldiers at war in Afganistan. He was live on the radio talking with a mother who had lost her daughter.
I emailed him after the show to say how much I was moved by the interview, this was his reply.
Play the videos attached and check out his website. All the sketches are done for free.
Dave



Dear Dave,


Thank you for your nice note. Being an artist you understand what drives us. Some days are very hard but this is necessary. Its the most important thing I've ever done.


A local program ran a story on the project a few months ago. It shows a presentation to a Marine mom. It's a nice piece. Here's the link: http://www.king5.com/archive/60392157.html


I'm also attaching a video of a speech I recently gave so you can watch it. It's about the project and will tell you why I'm doing these very important portraits. That number is now over 2000 free portraits. After that many portraits and that many families I have a very good idea of their loss. It takes about 25 minutes to watch but worth the time. Here it is:

Thanks!


Mike

My first post here:
Check out my buddy Dan Seese's website. Clean and attractive. Of course, his work is deluxe:
www.danseesestudios.com

Wow. That list of sites is dangerous. I got sucked into the time vortex staring with Noel's beautiful site.
So as long as I'm here
I'm working on mine for my mural business. I have a basic site on Mobile Me that will soon be going away. It seems to still be working:
