This is the BIG ONE: The Bancroft Brothers are bringing together, for the first time in 30 years, all 6 of the original "Rats Nest" (or The Six Young Men) from Disney's 70s-80s era. Each member has changed the face of animation and you can hear them all ONLY AT @ctnanimexpo on Saturday!

Hope to see YOU at CTNX!!!
Amy commentary....   A bit about this Blog...

New to the Blog?? Mission statement from the "Your Guide" post...This blog is the realm of Bride of Bookseller. The posts are all written by me. The goal is to educate and entertain by sharing resources that can benefit artists. It takes talent and commitment to thrive as an indie artist. But it also takes balance and fitness. No one talks to artists about this truth: You have to be well enough.. physically.. mentally..emotionally...financially... to get your work done. At the same time, so many artists struggle with chronic conditions that impact their productivity. No wonder artists are stressed. Many posts on the blog here offer possible solutions.... and celebrate the traits all the best artists share (button art below from Alaska Robotics:

find links for popular posts and themes at the "Your Guide to Behind the Scenes at Stuart Ng Books" post.. updated monthly.

New feature started this year ... Yoga for Artists (and others who work at desks all day). Stretches, options and preventative measures by certified Yoga instructor Simone. Most recent lesson links to previous ones as well:

A theme I'll be talking a lot about with artist friends at CTNX is the Unauthorized use of images posted on the internet and copyright protection for indie artists.

 Another frequent topic on my blog.. the connection between Art and Anxiety. Resources for this topic in this blog post.
