New Art Book – Optical Atristry

A lot of my recent book writing ventures focus on the electronic format and have included how-to style guides on artistic concepts. But I am excited to have just competed a book for display purposes with art pieces called “Optical Artistry.” Check out some sample pages I have added to this post and buying option on my author site.

New e-book available now – Tools for Your Creative Side

As Promised, here is the info on my new e-book and where you can find it.

The details:

The advancing technology we have available to us can be an incredible and amazing thing. However, it can also be costly and difficult to utilize in some cases. This e-book is designed as a collection of 65 online and downloaded resources to help assist creative people in doing the things they love with ease and at either no cost or affordable prices.

For those artists, photographers, writers and videographer types, this book is for you. For the people who work with audio and animation, this is for you.

Order on Amazon of my author website.

Leaves by Kevin Morris

Guest post by Kevin Morris

Leaves

Alone

In the car park.

The truth stark

Is blown

With the leaves

Who do not deceive.

Yet to grieve

Over lost hope

Helps no one cope.

Polite chatter,

As the rain

Did patter

On the window pane

Of a chain Café

Where I picked up the bill to pay.

One day,

No doubt, all this will seem far away.

Coming Soon, my new e-book – Tools For Your Creative Side

Over the years I have needed to find ways to do things online for creative purposes and on a budget.  Many times, I find that the easier the tool is to use, the better. With that in mind, I have compiled a large number of resources to help anyone with a little tech ability and desire to be creative to do just that.

This listing will be the theme of my fourth e-book which I hope to have out later this year with the current title of  Tools For Your Creative Side.

It will provide sources to help with anything from animation, to audio, to photo editing and file converting. More to come later.

Literary Help for Mental Health in Youth

Most people out there have been powerfully impacted in some way or another by some work of literature or a book of some type. This is not a new idea and not all that shocking of an idea. However, in recent times, the medical community has come to view books as a great tool in treating those of us with some sort of mental health issue.  In the UK,  there are now works specifically deigned for teens (13-18) to help them with things like anxiety, depression, eating disorders and self-harm, and difficult life pressures, such as bullying and exams.

Learn more about these now.

Art and Creativity as Stress Relief

The idea of art therapy isn’t a new one. In fact, quite a few of the posts on this blog delve into one of our contributor’s experiences in this area. But, while the notion itself has been around a long time, I only recently came to discover a very simplistic but potentially effective was to use it.

Adult coloring books.

These books allow the user to easy their mind through the simple and creative art of coloring. Check out some of these images from adult coloring books available on the market.
