Confessions of a Color Addict
By Carrie Alderfer
Artist Carrie Alderfer is a graphic and web designer who decided to get back into fine art about 10 years ago. First she started painting again with acrylics, but couldn't get colored pencils out of her mind. She picked them up again for the first time since high school with the goal of loosening up her style to create colored pencil drawings that are more expressive, like her paintings. Read more about Carrie's story in the Artist Newsletter, see her artwork, and also hear about her drawing setup and execution process.


Introducing 400 Series Marker Paper
We are proud to introduce our new 400 Series Marker paper for fine artists who create finished art using a variety of marker types. Markers glide easily over the silky smooth surface which supports vibrant colors and easy blending. The acid free, heavyweight sheet is bleed and feather resistant and takes layer upon layer of color. It is available in 4 popular pad sizes and proudly made in the USA. Learn more in the Artist Newsletter.

Celebrating 1 Year of Pass the Journal!
In April of 2015, we sent out 12 hardbound art journals to have the pages filled by different artists across the globe. Since then, the books have traveled to 20 states in the US and 9 different countries with unique artwork from different artists inside each book. When an artist receives a book, they create art, upload it to the pass the journal website where it gets added to a virtual tracking map, and pass the book to another artist to continue the cycle. See some of the fabulous artwork that’s been created and learn more about the project in the Artist Newsletter.
