Friday Art Links & Certification

Time for some more art links and a few other updates. Let me know if you find something neat and want to share it with the blogging world.

Copic Marker News Blog
- This is different than my I Like Markers blog. You can see photos of our trade-show booths and get other neat information from Copic.

Trev Murphy
- This is an incredible illustrator who has posted some fabulous videos on how he uses Copic Markers for ATC portraits. Definitely worth watching, even if you don't consider yourself an artist.

'skine art - Celebrating Moleskine lovers and their art. If you haven't tried a moleskine, they are a fine journal/sketchbook that has been around for centuries. The paper is fabulous! check out these illustrations and sketches for inspiration

Mostly Markers
- Cindy Overmeyer has done a fabulous job of uploading her artwork, so poke around and leave some comments. There's some great stuff here!

Meanwhile, those of you in Calgary can visit Sherrie as she teaches workshops at Scrapbook Pantry and Scrapbooker's Paradise in Calgary.

We at Copic will only be attending the first half of the show, however, if you are going to the CHA Craft Supershow July 31- August 1st in Orlando, FL be sure to look for demos using Copic Markers. I know of at least a dozen going on throughout the show, as well as workshops, so look for those.

Hi Marianne! I just wanted to let you know that I love the Friday Art Links, and I hope it's a feature you'll continue. Your blog is wonderful, and I look forward to every new post.

Thank you Marianne! Everything I know about using my Copic markers, I've learned from you. And I'm honored that you included my new Mostly Markers blog in today's Art Links. I'd love to receive comments from I Like Markers readers, and I just now adjusted my blog settings to make it easier for people to leave comments there.
