    ICAD 2014 Guest: Amy

    Our guest today is Amy Cowen, of the Creative Mom Podcast. Amy was one of the first people I "met" online when I started doing art in 2007 and started sharing my art on Flickr. We actually had the opportunity to meet for coffee last summer in San Francisco! The podcast is on hiatus but there are 174 episodes available for your headphones. I've long been a fan of Amy's line work and fiber art pieces. Amy is one of 4 artists I've interviewed for the Interview Series at Daisy Yellow.


    I tend to gravitate toward pen and ink when doing my #icad cards. Even though my black and white generally leaves me on the fringe of ICAD, I love the 4x6 index card format as a way to capture an everyday (or prompt-inspired) drawing. In this card, I've integrated fabric scraps, watercolor, and lyrics from a song by American Authors. I am a big fan of using alphabetic stencil templates, too!
