Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. ~Confucius
Seriously, have you gotten your subscription to Uppercase! Magazine, yet? It’s one of my favorite things to discover in my mailbox! This graphically rich, whimsical, and all-around cornucopia of all things art-related never fails to make me smile. I’ve had such a blast responding to their calls for submission. In issue #18, I was lucky enough to have a piece published in their Handsome Ransom feature. That one was so much fun to create!
This time, the challenge was a call for letterforms and alphabets made with office supplies. I went out onto my back deck and took some photos of my three vintage staplers in configurations no one had ever imagined before! The result was unique, and my submission was printed right up-front in the feature. I love the challenges – they give me an excuse to flex my creative skills. Thanks Uppercase!
