Monday Artday - Now a Major Motion Picture

Monday Artday... A major motion picture? No, not really. But it is something to be admired. Not just as an amazing place to find some great art and illustration from a huge variety of artists from all over the world, but as an interesting social experiment. The artists here have an astonishing knack for managing themselves when the host is absent.

Well, the host is back. Just a quick run-down of what's up. I spent all of 2010 treating a horrible intestinal cancer. Long runs of chemotherapy and 2 major surgeries. It's been very hard on me and my family but it all has a happy ending! I'm cancer-free and back to normal health! Now I can ease back into all of my passions (outside of just staying alive). So I'm diving back into Monday Artday and I want to thank you all for keeping it going while I was away.

For all of you that requested membership while I was out, I have approved your membership so look for an email from Blogger with instructions on how to log in. Looking forward to seeing all of you posting your fabulous work here!
