This is a nice article from Artsy about the Photo taken this week of some of the female Los Angeles Artists.

Unfortunately, large pockets of female artists living and working in Los Angeles, some with focus on Street Art, murals and photography, did not hear about the event.  I am pretty hooked into the art scene here in LA and did not get word until an hour after it started, from a male artist, posting on facebook.  Imagine if we all came out.  There would be thousands.

If you are an artist, yet have not done much work on the computer creating, here is a little tutorial about making a logo, that will give you all kinds of good information and tips on how to use Adobe Illustrator.  You can use these tools for other applications… and you can draw things on paper, take a picture of them with Adobe Capture, on your phone and it goes right into a library you can then access from all your adobe products.  It’s pretty cool and will get your creative mind flowing.  I recommend you wait for the sale Adobe runs, for just under $30 a month.
