Saturday was GREAT!

I spoke at BOSS BRUNCH in Washington, D.C. and was on stage with Shawn Thomas- Ask a Millionaire! He dropped some major knowledge on everyone and it was wonderful. The entire speaking line up was excellent. And I will be collaborating with some of the people there. It was a great first talk for the year. I met so many cool people. I am considering being on the line up for Florida in April. I am thankful to Tarra Jackson for putting this together. She is busy and could have easily decided to spend her time elsewhere.

Joe Bloch is based in Brooklyn and he creates vivid, highly-textured acrylic paintings that capture the raw psychoses of contemporary urban life on canvas. His studio, gallery and agency is based there. He supports new artists around the world.

The FIRST issue of CREATIVEBLOCH magazine launched in the fall of 2016 with the help of Kickstarter.  Now Bloch wants to make it bigger, better and increase distribution for 2017. The first issue featured 17 amazing artists based in NYC. This new issue is open artists, advertisers and contributors all over the globe. This will be digital and in print.

The first issue was a success and received praise by the art community, and was circulated among curators, gallery owners, artists, art buyers and the general public.

By supporting this Kickstarter project you can get prints, copies of the magazine, T-shirts, publish your own art, advertisements, and even commission some art! There is even an option to publish your article. This is an amazing project that brings ART into the world! Something we are sorely lacking!
