Creative types are always curious to know how different or alike they are to others in their tribe (not to mention, there's a little inner voyeur in all of us). "The Pulse of Mixed Media" is a collection of responses to questions posed to artists about the art-making process as well as about passions, fears and other life thoughts as relating to art. Questions are answered sometimes with words only, but other times with a work of art as well. The reader will enjoy perusing the pages and seeing some of their favourite artists answer questions that have rarely (if ever) been asked to them before: "Have you ever lost a friendship over art?" Content in the book comes from a combination of submissions in response to an open call on the author's blog as well as from a list of invited (and well-know) artists. Seth Apter has achieved a very large following for his blog, The Altered Page, which centers around a zine that is the basis for this book.
