Wanna say something? Don’t be Shy

Start mouthing-off….Shypocket.com, accessed through a smartphone or iPad only, is the new say-what-you-want about your art, his art, her art, nasty art critics, museums, gallery owners.

New opinion site for artists 


After 25 years as an ad copywriter and creative director, I had had enough. I was looking for a way out of the confines of commercial writing and the grind of helping clients make money. It was a good career, and now I wanted a good change of career.  You know, the how-can-I-have-fun-for-the-rest-of-my-working-days-and-make enough-to-retire question.

My idea: I’ll make other people write! And I’ll edit them for a change.  In all honesty, I created shypocket.com to fill a gap.

http://www.shypocket.com is an opinion site for professional artists. It’s free. It’s on the mobile –smartphone and iPad only— and it’s kind of cool.

Shy is designed to be a quick, swipe, swipe read of random, daily “mini-essays,” with eye candy under each essay layer. What I want to happen is for the artist community to make this site what it needs it to be—a place for honest, daily discourse that stimulates the mind, the heart, and conversation, against a backdrop of ever-changing topics and points of view.

I also want to prove that artists can write. Beyond the expected stiff (sorry) process statement. Consider this a challenge and send us 90 words + one image on a topic that’s hot for you. What gets you twisted? Stoked? Right now. Every day. Top of mind.  A day in your life with art. Do tell.
