Artists Working Group

The PCB Artists Working Group met on Sunday, Sep. 28. Donna Globus, Susan Viguers, and I got together in Mt. Airy to show/talk about what we've been up to and share problems and solutions. 

Donna showed us the Guild of Book Workers' collaborative project on the theme of maps. She'd brought her contribution, a map of Monday morning, to the last meeting, and it was intriguing to see how the group's comments influenced the final product.
Susan gave us an update on her long-term project, The Opossum. Discussions at the last meeting brought about some changes to the title page, and we enjoyed seeing some reader's spreads with the art in place.
One of the pieces I brought was a modified snake book, which evolved over a number of Working Group sessions. All of the comments and suggestions--whether I accepted them or not--made it better.
There's nothing like a second--or third, or fourth--pair of eyes when you're working on a project. The Artists Working Group is a great way to get feedback in a relaxed, collegial setting. It's also stimulating to see and react to what others are doing. 
The more the merrier. If you're interested, contact Susan Viguers at
