summer reading giveaway!
I've added a few books to my summer reading list that I'd like to share with you so let's have a GIVEAWAY!



First up is this darling and touching book by Jenipher Lyn: How being Stubborn Depressed and Unpopular Saved my Life. From the title it sounds like a heavy book, but don't be hesitant to read it, Jenipher covers universal topics that we can all relate to, self comparison, not feeling good enough (can I get a hand raise?!) all with her adorable and lighthearted illustrations and lettering. It's hard not to smile while reading this book, a great read to share with a teen or tween in your life (or anybody really!) we all deal with this stuff and it's a good reminder we are not alone! I first met Jenipher on twitter and saw her sweet illustrations, and that she was writing a book and she sent me one copy to share with you in a giveaway - giveaway details at the bottom of this post! See more views of the book here or purchase in Jenipher's etsy shop!


Next in our summer reading giveaway is Maker Dad: Lunch Box Guitars, Antigravity Jars and 22 other Incredibly Cool Father Daughter Projects by Mark Frauenfelder founder of Boing Boing and editor in chief of MAKE magazine. I was contacted by Mark's publishing company to see if I'd like to do a giveaway on my blog, I thought just based on title ALONE that this sounded like a fabulous book! As a kid I loved rainy day project type books and I would have been first in line to get this one! It covers everything from making an ice cream sandwich necklace (one of my fav projects from the book!) to silkscreening shirts to making a retro video arcade game. If you have a patient and crafty Dad, this book would be a great gift for Father's Day! AND I have a copy to giveaway too - see the end of this post for details to enter the giveaway.


And last (but not least!) is Pam Carriker's book, Creating Art at the Speed of Life: 30 days of mixed media exploration. Summer is perfect to catch up on your creativity, so why not get started with Pam's book and have a new project every day for a month! (this book pairs well with my online Composition for Collage class which starts June 19!) Focusing on art journals as your base, Pam takes you through a new technique each day and by the end of the book, you will have a fabulous art journal, filled with new techniques. Pam also covers design basics like color, shading, form, line etc and has Q & A highlights with artists featured in the book: Seth Apter, Lesley Riley, Mary Beth Shaw, Susan Tuttle and many others! I have one copy to giveaway to a lucky winner! Details below on how to enter!

The book on being depressed, etc caught my eye. It's the story of my life. I'd like to know how a life was saved by this. Totally curious. But I'd also love Pam's book. I have her first book and this one is on my Amazon wish list.

I'd love to win "how being stubborn...." I have a 14 year old daughter and we'd both benefit from it, I think. Thanks!
 
Art at the speed of life sounds perfect! I love the idea of learning new techniques and creating pages at the same time. At the moment I'm just creating creating creating to build my confidence, skill and develop my own style. Following tutorials is a great help, it gets you beyond the fear of the blank page, yet you can still inject your own thoughts, style and ideas into it!
 
Oh I have been wanting to get Pam Carriker's book "Creating Art at the Speed of Life" Thank you Claudine for the chance to win it!

I've been having so much fun with mixed media and collage work, creating fun vignettes. I get comments on my blog from folks saying how much they love my collage work...and I always tell them it is due to the class I took with you. So thank you! kathybydesign.com
