from the editor  

Last October I took part in a month-long annual art challenge called InkTober, started by illustrator Jake Parker. He challenges people to create one ink drawing a day during the month, and since 2009 it’s grown into a worldwide phenomenon with thousands of people taking part. The premise is simple, but the results can be lifechanging, and I don’t use that term lightly. Some people have re-discovered their love of drawing, or made art a bigger priority in their lives, or started making time for art, where before there was none. While there were days when my muse was off having a latte, I was able to create a drawing on most days—and what I gained was pretty incredible.

Looking for new ideas and inspiration? Some of our favorite CLOTH PAPER SCISSORS contributors have new books On the Shelf that will open your eyes to exciting new techniques and materials.

rae missigman

Looking around Rae Missigman’s bright, colorful studio, filled with almost every art supply imaginable, it’s tough to envision its scaled-down predecessor. This mixed-media artist’s original workspace was a small corner desk covered with metal cups full of paint and sewing supplies. “As my thirst to create different art forms grew,” she says, “so did my need for space.” Today her studio occupies a sizable area in her Florida home, where the sun streams in through large framed windows that fill the room with natural light. Small stations in various spots are dedicated to various artistic pursuits, such as painting and stitching, allowing her to work on multiple projects at once. That’s a good thing, since Rae’s creative life is active: She designs stencils for StencilGirl Products, teaches online and in person, and…
