SWEET+TALKER - It's Christmas, Please Come Home December 20 2012 By: Kevin Fisher
This last week I sat down and wrote my first ever Christmas song! I was very pleased with it, and thought why not record it quick and put it out just in time for the holidays? So that's what I did. I also wanted to give it away for FREE in light of the season.."It's Christmas Please Come Home" will be available for free download here at 8123 this weekend! Hope you enjoy!
Art Blog: Jenni Linzy Introduces Mikey Jackson November 13 2012 By: Guest Blogger
“Hello, i'm mikey. i enjoy friends / photography / bicycles / painting / illustration / all things crunchy.”
What medium(s) do you use?
Recently oil/acrylic on wood, but I really enjoy trying anything new. I've worked with pen and watercolor frequently in the past. I miss that!
Where do you show you art (galleries/street/1st Fri?)
I think my art gets most of it's exposure online, but I have also been fortunate to show my work at a couple galleries in the downtown phoenix area.
Who/what inspires you?
I try to soak in as much of my surroundings as possible. Most of the time it's hard for me to remember most of it so I take lots of notes and photos. Many things locally are inspiring, but I think when I see another local artist genuinely excited about creating something, that's very inspirational.
Describe downtown Phoenix's art culture/community?
It's exciting! So many people are doing so many creative things, and I'm always inspired by local artists. In the last few years I've noticed a push for more street art and murals. I think that's a great way to bring the community together.
