teesha & tracy moore have done it again. they've put their creative noggins together and come up with a really good idea called the artstronauts club. i'm a little flummoxed at the dirt cheap $5 pricetag, but not surprised. teesha has demonstrated time and time again that what interests her is sharing her artistic gifts with others. in a blog world where branding/stats/advertising/strategy/trends/business have come to dominate she has chosen not to turn her identity into a for-profit brand. instead of anticipating what people want and catering to that, she just keeps right on marching to the beat of a different drum. continuing, year after year, to quietly set people ablaze with wonder and heady inspiration. just like she's been doing for nearly 2 decades via artfest retreats, zines, and her magnificent visual journals.
the artstronaut club is a subscription based place on the interwebs where one might go for a jolt of artsy inspiration. but i'm warning you right now so pay attention... you can literally spend hours in teesha & tracy's fun & cheeky clubhouse. turn off your iphone and ipad, make a pot of tea or a hot toddy, and get cozy in front of your computer screen. you'll be a while.
there are so many videos, printables, articles, photos, and tutorials i felt drunk with glee on my first visit. and speaking of my visit i want to be very clear about why i'm promoting teesha's new venture. it's a very simple reason. IT'S GOOD. really good. reminds me of the late 90's when i first discovered her Studio Zine. i'd never seen anything like it. oh what fun i had anticipating the arrival of each new issue showing up in my mailbox in a quirky cool envelope. delectable then. delectable now. every digital page.
i'm delighted that i'll have a place to orbit whenever i need my teesha moore fix. no more waiting for blog updates! if you want to be in on teesha's latest big idea, i'll see you THERE.
teesha writes in her latest newsletter about the artstronauts club:
Right now, we are on the ground floor of this behemoth project and while we have big ideas, we also want to allow space to see how this grows and expands. I know a thing or two about following a creative idea and know how it can lead to adventures far beyond what I could have envisioned.
The subscription price is $5/month. For that you will receive full access to everything on the site which will include new content every couple of days. We will include a few videos each month as well as some digital art supplies, among loads and loads of articles, tips, reviews, videos, etc. A value of $100/month for the workshops alone, all for the cost of a grande coffee latte! We want to make this affordable to all, but also help us keep food on our table and new art supplies on our art desks. ;)
