What I've Been Up to Elsewhere on the Intertubes

Critique Group © 2013 Sylvia Liu

Here are a couple of articles I wrote recently, found elsewhere on the web:

The Value of Critiques on Julie Hedlund's blog. How I've come to learn that getting my writing and art critiqued is one of the most valuable things to do as a writer and artist seeking to improve and take my work to the next level.

Not a Joke: Full Digression at UnderAcademy College at Altdaily.com. Where I interview my best friend from third grade, author Sandy Florian, about UnderAcademy College, a free, online "anti-degree institution" for innovative thinkers, artist, writers, and poets.

P.S. What do you think of my quick sketch, above? I'm planning to make a painting with a similar theme or look for the upcoming Norfolk Academy Art show (in early May).

  1. Quick sketch? That is an amazing piece of art! Loved the smirk on the green bird. Love it!

    And I read your post on Julie's blog. Fantastic. Going to check out your other interview. Anti- degree sounds intriguing.

  2. We LOVE the picture. I think I saw those guys this morning, outside my house - trying to keep their feet out of the snow.

    Love and licks,

  3. Adorable artwork! You are sooo talented. Love the articles and posts on your blog. Thank you for all the wonderful information and tips that you have shared on your blog! Reading all of your blogger tutorials have reduced stress and helped me out.

  4. Hi Sylvia! I really enjoyed your interview on Julie Hedlund's blog! I agree, it's so important to have one's work critiqued by others! I love your bird illustration...it looks like those birds are up to something! :-)

  5. I love the birds! They've got wonderful style and personality... even for a quick sketch. :)
