calling all artists!


Given that my new bionic leg is a blank canvas that needs some attention, I've decided to offer the opportunity for my artist friends to decorate my prosthesis. I'm planning temporary "installations" that will be changed 3 or 4 times per year. While I'm wearing your art I'll feature you on my blog and if you'd like I'll carry your business cards and be a walking advertisement for your work.

If you're interested, drop me a line and we can discuss the details--the medium and the type of art that would work best for the dimensions of the project. Do note that you'd have foot, leg, and thigh to decorate. (no need to be physically present in SoCal, either--I can apply the art myself if you send it to me).

I'm open to all types and forms of art--for example, I could imagine that poetry would work as well as visual art. So many of you, my readers, are incredibly creative and talented--I'd be thrilled to wear your work!

Looking forward to hearing from all of you artistic folks: phddillyATyahoodotCOM. Feel free to forward this link to anyone outside the PilgrimSteps circle that might be interested.

My hubby just got new full leg braces last week. I wonder if he would let me decorate them with ric rac and glitter gel pens? Nah, probably not.

His aren't robotic, but isn't it wonderful how technology has advanced?

I love your idea and will be watching for photos.

This is really an amazing idea. I love how art is changing to permeate our lives in ways that we never would have thought - whether through the internets, or people like you who think of innovative ways to display and share art. Brava.
