A DIY blog about art and DIY projects and how sometimes less is actually more.
Joker Art is a blog about DIY art projects and how sometimes less is actually more. You can find tutorials, art critiques, artist interviews and various other things on the site. It’s all about how you can make something beautiful with a little bit of creativity.
I’m a full time artist. I am also a father, husband, writer and amateur carpenter. I love all of these things, and somehow manage to do them all while still finding time to make art every day.
It’s been two years now since I started Joker Art, a blog dedicated to sharing my artwork, my thoughts on creativity, and the many things that inspire me.
I am thrilled at the response it has received. There are so many amazing DIY art projects out there, and I am inspired by each and every one of you that takes the time to share your work with the world.
That’s why this site is different than any other online gallery. Here you’ll find an eclectic mix of styles and mediums from a wide spectrum of artists from around the globe. Not only that but you’re able to read about how each piece came into being, as well as a little bit more about the artist behind it all!
So pull up a chair, grab some coffee (or tea) and get ready for an adventure… let’s make some art!**
My name is Chadwick. I am a twenty-something graphic designer by trade and by night, a graphic design enthusiast. I am also the creator of Joker Art.
I created Joker Art because I wanted to share my love for design with others. I want to expose the masses to new artists, art and design concepts and bring about a new appreciation for art among everyone.
The Joker Art blog is named after the Joker from Batman but in this case instead of being crazy and evil, my blog will be creative, positive and fun.
What you’ll find on Joker Art are reviews of new art books, interviews with artists and designers, DIY projects and other fun stuff like that!
But what makes it unique is that I’ll also include tutorials on how to accomplish the same projects so if you’re interested in making your own DIY project, then you can learn how to do it as well.**
I’m a big fan of creativity and DIY projects, but I also feel that too often the general public is under the impression that in order to create work that is both original and beautiful, one must have an art degree or be a trained artist. This simply isn’t true.
I have been drawing for as long as I can remember, and when I was in school I took every art class possible. Yet throughout all of my years of schooling, I never once took an art history course — not because I didn’t enjoy it, but because it wasn’t offered! So much of what we know about art history is passed down from teacher to student and through books, which limits many people’s understanding about how to create work that is not only beautiful and visually appealing, but also meaningful.
In addition to this lack of information about how to create visual art and design projects, there are also few outlets for people who want to share their creations with others. The internet has changed all this. There are now so many ways to get your work out there, whether you’re selling it or just want to show it off!
That’s why I started Joker Art — I want the world to see all the great artwork out there being created by those who were never formally trained
joker art is a blog that focuses on the fine art and craft of making things. It’s about handmade art, handmade clothes, handmade jewelry, handmade accessories, and all sorts of other stuff. We create using recycled materials and we are always looking for new ways to reduce waste in our lives.
Trying to live a more sustainable lifestyle by purchasing less stuff and reusing what you already have is one way to slow the amount of waste that ends up in landfills each year. Reducing our carbon footprint is another way, but there are still many other ways we can make small changes that will add up to big differences.

Art is a social game, and if you want to play it well, you have to understand the rules. Unfortunately, the rules are clear as mud. To make matters worse, they’re changing all the time. Just to begin with, the word “art” is used in at least three different ways:
1) Art refers to any creative activity that is considered worthy of respect and admiration;
2) Art refers to products of that creative activity, usually as determined by an authority figure like a museum or collector; and
3) Art refers to a market segment–people who are buying art.
This last definition is what I will use when I say artists. If you ask me whether I’m an artist, I’ll probably answer that it depends on how you define art. (I am very willing to be defined.) But if you ask me whether my work is art, I’ll say yes, because that’s what I’m selling. And when I say someone buys art (or doesn’t buy art), or that something is selling (or not selling), I’ll mean in the third sense above: as determined by price and sales volume on the open market.
In this essay, though, I won’t be talking about artists so much as about what
