Join the New Year's Revolution

Join in the lastest book from Sampson Low Ltd by submitting your artwork and inspire others to a better life in 2013. As artists and authors we get the most out of lives and have the artwork to prove it!
Many people start New Year's Resolutions at this time of year but have nothing to show for their efforts and often fail because of it.

Help these people by sharing your systems and show them how to see the interesting aspects of their everyday lives. Inspire them by documenting your own New Year's Resolution perhaps.

If you've got an interesting 'system for living' already or are willing to embark on a fresh start for 2013 then get in touch and reserve a page. Then make your artwork and send it to me before the deadline of 1st Febraury 2013.
We'll publish it in the Patternotion Book and send you a copy for FREE.
For all the details on how to get involved visit the Theme and Submit pages.

The Book page tells you more about the physical book itself and how you will be paid.

For my page, I've started to decorate my daughter's bedroom (after several years on the to-do list) this Christmas holidays and we're going to create a series of sculptures with what we've found under the floorboards and behind the wallpaper.
A mundane job has some added interest and I get to spend some extra time with my children.
See our first robot above.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
