I went to Michael's the other day, mostly to see if there was any new Halloween junk (there was, and I practically slipped in my drool). While I was there, of course, I perused the art supplies. In particular, I wanted to see if there was any of the hot-press watercolor paper I usually use for all my work.

There wasn't any, but there was something else that caught my eye...something called "mixed media" paper (okay, it actually said "mix media" but that sounds grotesque to my ear...). It was available in the form of a big, thick book. Well, that might be suitable for me, I thought. My eternal problem with paper relates to mixing two very different media. So I opened the book to see what the paper texture was like and all at once I knew that this humble book of paper was destined to become a Magical Book of Wonder, filled with my works.

I can't quite explain it, but I just know this book is going to be filled with good stuff. So over the next few weeks or months, prepare for magical wonder.

Went to check my P.O. Box the other day and found a surprise waiting for me...a magical mystery package from Xavier van der Meerschen on the planet Quebec.







The note that came with the metal charm said "I found this on the ground, seems like a magical hammer or a galactic artifact. Thought you may like it!"

I love books oh so much, and I love bookplates too. I would love to see the good old bookplate make a comeback. So I thought, "Hey, I'm an artist...why don't I design a bookplate?" So I did, and I'm making it available for free on my website. Just download it, print it, and paste it!

Once upon a time, when I was a little junior high zinester, I created a little black and white tribute to the group of unicellular organisms known as protists. The protists are largely overlooked as a group, but they include such beloved characters as the amoeba and the paramecium.

Today, I love talking about protists as much as I did then, so I decided to rework and revamp that old idea to create Popular Protists: a pseudo-scientific coloring book.

Popular Protists contains seven black and white drawings of protists for you to color, and there's a surprise at the end. You can get your copy for $2 in the United States, Canada and Mexico and $3 overseas. Go to my Artfire shop to order or e-mail me at bethywilliams@gmail.com, or you can message me here on Livejournal.

1. I'm having computer difficulties which means I don't know when I am going to be able to upload new work. I'm insanely frustrated by this but I'm working on it.

2. I am immensely grateful to everyone who has purchased my prints and wish there was a way to thank every one of them personally. You hear that, deviantART? Even an automated response would be better than nothing.

3. Happy Bloomsday! I wish I was in Dublin.
