The Original Art Sparker

When I started this blog in 2007, I soon met dozens of other makers, seers, and sayers through ArtSpark Theatre, the blog of ArtSparker, aka Susan Sanford, a flint who ignited creative brush fires along the 'nets, 
and herself a creator of beasties, ghosts, and superheroes. 

Think, artist love child of Jane Eyre + Chthulhu.

Though its blogroll still flickers, the Theater's lights are off now, its denizens scattered to Tumblr, FB, and elsewhere.
You can see the fresh tracks ArtSparker's off-leash imagination, however, on her RedBubble pages:

Just a small glimpse: 

RedBubble is inspirational.  Much less precious than Etsy, it's a site where independent artists from around the world show their work and sell it as affordable wearable, displayable, usable items.
(You can see Susan's designs on T-shirts, for instance.)

Aww, thanks so much. As it happens, today is my birthday, and this is a lovely gift.

Wow, Susan--I had NO idea it's your birthday!
A fire sign, eh? Not surprising (for a sparker).

I'd seen a couple of these pieces before--the shadow puppet snarling wolf and the bat. No idea these were ArtSparker'simages. Nice work!

Hey. bink:
I'm glad you can comment using your iPad again!
Sometimes I see Salman's images out and about too: a funny thing.
