Paper People, based in Crediton, Devon, are one of the few suppliers of Prismacolor pencils in the UK, and the only one that I know of that can even offer singles. I have used them myself, so can recommend them. They also stock many other pencils, including Derwent, Faber Castell and Caran d'Ache. Go to "Coloured pencils 2" to find the Prismacolor, which are listed under "Karisma".
Aesthetica magazine have asked us to publicise their latest competition which is for artworks, poetry and fiction. The submission fee is £10 for five items and the prize is £500, so over to you if you want to take part.
Alyona Nickelsen, well known for her fabulous CP work and the author of "The Colored Pencil Painting Bible" due out in the Winter of 2008, has a new Online CP School that will open in Spetember, and is signing people up now. Alyona says:
There, we will present a variety of courses that will lead you through all of the detailed steps that we think will open new Colored Pencil Painting vistas previously available only after sitting through sometimes scores of Art Workshops. Our school is modeled on the atelier method of the Masters mixed with modern tools of the Internet never dreamed of in the Victorian age. If you are ready for a blast of new information on a timeline you can deal with then this completely different school is for you. The classes officially start September 1, 2008. This is perfect time to enroll and take advantage of ourlow introductory price (limited time only).
OK - more muckles as and when they come my way. Remember:
