For the Love of Seth


DisCo King by D.Price-Ewen 2009

Winging its way over to NY from NZ, is this special thank you gift to Seth Apter of the Altered Page.

Inspired by his own brand of stencil art, graffiti, collage and paint, I made this mixed media piece to say, "I really can't thank you enough Seth, for the amount of time and hard-work and unswerving faith you put into your collaborations."

I'm sure as many of you will testify, this man has almost single-handedly brought the online altered art world together. These last couple of years, he has challenged us, entertained us, encouraged us, introduced us, and wowed us with his spectacular brand of art. But it is not just his talent as an artist that has inspired us; it is the incredible amount of commitment he has put into his networking that continues to astound us. As Jill Zaheer from JazWorks said after Seth's last collaboration (Buried Treasure), I think we can now say that his networking and his collborations and his desire to bring us all together "is such a treasure unto itself that he is definitely blogland's very own "treasured gift" - and for that, he must truly be thanked."

Such a beautiful, heartfelt tribute to Seth and work of art you've created! You are so talented...and creating up a storm as I saw the lovelies you sent to Alicia!

And beautiful work I might add.

That is so thoughtful of you Debrina! You've created a lovely piece for Seth and I am sure he will be tickled pink!

Kim said...

Lovely Deb, what a nice thing to do for someone who gives so much to the rest of us, bravo!

Corrine said...

I couldn't agree more. I loved the disco project and especially enjoyed meeting so many other like minded artists that I now visit on a regular basis. Great idea and a lovely gift. I bet he'll love them too.

Debrina said...

Well Mr Cachet, I'll email Mr Apter and see if he's ok about me passing on his address. Hey everyone else, thank you for acknowledging this particular accolade for Seth. He absolutely deserves it.

Jo Archer said...

Wow Deb, that is fab!
P.S I can't believe it's taken me so long to get around to finding your gorgeous blog.
I'm still thinking about what to do for our scrap-heap challenge. I can get down to it when the kid's are back to school.
Glad to have found you! Jo x

Debrina said...

Hi all - I'll be sure to let Seth know about this little tribute so that he can see all of your lovely comments. Your sentiments are really nice.

Deb...I am humbled and overwhelmed by your sweet and generous words and by that amazing piece which you created for me. Thank you so much for this post and your gift to me. It is people like you that make the effort I put into my blog worthwhile. So I send thanks right back to you for being a part of my journey and inspiring me!!! :-)

i could not have said it better myself and agree wholeheartedly with every word you've written! that is such a beautiful tribute and gift to seth. what a beautiful and thoughtful girl you are! i'm a bitch.

i sent him a key i found on the beach recently for my beachy treasure hunt and didn't include anything cool or handmade. i'll go cry... or just ring you. :)

you are the best, you know!

Debrina said...

Hello Alicia and hello Seth. Well, you deserve it Seth. I can't think of anything more to say...except, you rock!
And Alicia - it was so cool speaking to you tonight while I unwrapped all those goodies you sent me! Stay tuned for a massive posting on that one, y'al.

Lani Gerity said...

Ahhhhh! Great gift for a great man!
Thank you Debrina for posting it and if you are reading the comments, thank you SETH for being such a mench!("a particularly good person with the qualities one would hope for in a dear friend or trusted colleague; a gentleman" Urban Dictionary)

alteredbits said...

i can't wait, lovely lady! it was so wonderful to talk to you again indeed! i could make a very good, but very bad habit of it i think. ;)

(my verification word is fleflicia!)

Debrina said...

Hi Lani, Hi again Alicia from Altered Bits! A "mench", Lani? Ha ha. That's a good one, for a good chappy like Seth.

Gaby Bee said...

What a nice thing to do, Debrina. You have created a really fabulous piece for Seth. I bet he is thrilled!

La Dolce Vita said...

Hi Deb, hope you have time for a MeMe award! I blogged you and passed it on! caterina

Kelly Jeanette said...

What a wonderful thing to do for Seth and the artwoek for him rocks!

Debrina said...

Hi guys - thanks for your continuing support of Seth. It is good to see that you yourselves support this man, 100%! So thanks once again, for all your comments!

La Dolce Vita - I am honoured by your offer but on principle I do not accept "awards". Some of them are well intended but I have a slight problem with the ones that say you must then send them on to "so many other" bloggers, etc. So you will understand that I must decline this award.

Jill said...

What a wonderful and heartfelt thank you to Seth that you've made. I love your generous and appreciation of him. It's so thoughtful of you to have shared the mixed media "thank you" piece you made for him as well. Special thanks must also go to you for all the support that you have given to so many people, including myself!

Some of the best gifts in life are the surprising treasures we find in people! :)

ArtPropelled said...

And so say all of us! Seth is indeed a gem. I'm sure he will love the piece you've created for him.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

What a stunning and appropriate tribute to Seth. He deserves every bit of the praise you extended him. His art and his collaborations are an inspiration to us all. You have captured it nicely by crowning him the king!

I would like to add a link to your blog because you are so amazing.
