JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 345 :: bliss and star wars

15 Dec

Today’s bliss…the blank side. 

It’s really quite amazing, this Star Wars phenomenon. It’s everywhere. Every. Where. And, as Friday gears up to be the single biggest movie of all time first day release EVER, well, I just can’t get enough of the hype. 

Including this from my friend and the amazing artist Bren Bataclan. 

In this episode you learn how to draw an alien spacecraft in less than a few minutes. But the best lesson of all might be from Bren’s own words: 

“Your imagination is the most important tool.”

When it comes to art and life, imagination leads the way. Thanks for the blissful reminder Bren (and Beanie!). Even Walt Disney and his Imagineers knew that. Ironically, Disney now owns the Star Wars franchise.

Which brings me to one of my favorite quotes:

If you can dream it, you can do it.
-Walt Disney

More tomorrow.


JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 305 :: blissful wurtles

5 Nov

Today’s bliss…. a wurtle. That’s not a typo.

This one’s from my friend Bren. He’s an artist, one I have watched for over a decade. I was so excited to own a few of his very unique and truly inspiring pieces of art…. way back then. And I still love them to this day.

Now, Bren has something else that brings a smile to my face. Videos that teach art to children in the Beanie and Bren Show.

In this one he teaches a mashup of a turtle and a whale – a Wurtle of course!!

Way to go Bren! Still rooting for you — you always make me smile and you still bring me bliss.

Best part? I love the message…. “And remember don’t erase” — because doesn’t that go for art and life. 

More tomorrow. 
{blissful art?}
