May 31, 2007

Hi all,

Lots happening here!

Where do I start, Secrets of Rusty Things by Michael deMeng has arrived! Michael's new book came sooner than the Publisher thought! Great Surprise! Of course, I have read it and it is really good reading, great inspiration & fabulous eye-candy! The artwork, not Michael! Ok, him too!

Each chapter is about a myth. Michael explains the myth & has a piece of artwork he created to go along with that myth. Also, He has his interpretation of the myth & the process of putting the artwork together to symbolize important parts of the myth. On the side of each page, he tells about how he acquired the finds that go into the artwork, Garage Sales, Second Hand stores, etc. It really makes you want to junking!

Our online store is up!

Michael deMeng & The Artists' Nook present an Assemblage Emporium

Right now, we have a few things on there like: Secrets of Rusty Things, deMeng Rubber Stamp line, deMeng Apron, Anatomy Man & some other books from some of our favorite artists. But pretty soon we'll have lots of other goodies including: signed and numbered prints, rusty things, found objects, paint kits, and perhaps even some cool power tools...oh, did I mention liquid nails.
