Are you ready to make art?  Let me rephrase that:  Is your work area ready for you to make art?  In today's Miles Away from Mundane podcast, I talk about the importance of having a clean desk or workspace before you start setting up your art supplies.

This Miles Away from Mundane podcast is about using a dream and an awkward memory to spark ideas for art dolls and figures.  My imagery includes the "hear no evil..." monkeys as well as vintage faces and the movie Pleasantville.

I talk about both one-of-a-kind mixed media figures and  "production line" figures (created in a sort of mass-production style, not exactly one-by-one).

Links and resources:
40 Faces for figures - My Cafe Press CD with doll and figure faces that you can use.
Pleasantville - This is a great "background movie" when I'm working on art. I just plain like this movie, anyway.
Tyson Emanuel provided the background music for this podcast.  It's his original work, Divided Beliefs.

Shui to Go - Halloween tips A sample Feng Shui podcast, featuring decorating notes for Halloween: 
Black is a career color and orange is ideal for fame/reputation.  So, Halloween is perfect for upgrading your Feng Shui luck!

Avoid excessively scary, tacky or repellant images.  Think about creative and original holiday decor. 

Remember: This is the one time of year when you have an opportunity to let people glimpse inside your home.  Use your fame area (directly ahead when anyone looks in your front door) to make a strong and favorable impression.
