How to Fold a Cube from three strips of paper by Gretchen in Seattle. "The guy" ends up on the inside of a closed cube - he is just there for instruction . . . you can make lots of cubes without his help once you know how.
Best Coptic Stitch book binding video tutorial. Jim Escalante talks through this process. (There are two short videos) I use his technique to make my hand-bound books, then use the "covers" as my end-sheets when hard-binding. Other notes: Less tangling of thread if it is first waxed. To pre-measure thread, wrap it around the height of the book; one length for each part of the book (4 signatures plus 2 end pieces = 3 circumferences) plus one extra 'go round' for a nice tail to work with.
Kelly Paper Company, Seattle Here is a place to get "parent sheets" of some really lovely paper for book making. Great helpful people. It is accessed off 1st Ave S, just a few blocks toward the city center from Daniel Smith Art Supplies. (Both are on the "back way" route from Seatac Airport to Seattle, great stop on the way into the city!) Click through for store hours and address.
Location of Kelly Paper, the place to buy parent sheets of Cougar paper for around 50¢ a sheet. (More for the cover weight.) 3 sheets makes a nice little book.
My own studies of color have been almost like music theory, and I developed my own notation system for a color wheel based upon Albert Munsell's 10-section color wheel. The Bourges system doubles that number and explores color from a dozen different angles. Combining historic and contemporary, Color Bytes includes hexadecimal and RGB color notation along with views from many disciplines. Find it. Fall into its pages.

Bob Burridge showing Derwent water soluble drawing pencils. (I attended Bob's Abstract Acrylics workshop in 2010 and 2011 at the Art Products fair in Pasadena, California -- great stuff! And a marvelous set of vendors with "special show prices"!)
Anyone can sketch- an online sketching series by a homeschooling dad who also happens to be an amazing artist. Free and wonderful. #art
