Since my muse is still somewhere lost in the void, has drinks on a sunny beach or whatever, I decided to get into gear (art-wise) with a little challenge!
C'mon all ye guys and girls... this is an art site... let's produce some art, inspire and get inspired!!! What do you say?HALLOWEEN CHALLENGE!!!! This is my idea...
We create Halloween postcards and send them to other participants to spread the art. No big prices, no *winners*, for all participants will be winners. How does it work?
Create a Halloween postcard. Depict your favourite character on a pumpkin, write a poem and arrange it nicely, draw an abstract bat... whatever... only rule is... a pumpkin has to be included in what way ever. When the challenge is over, you send your postcard to another participant (I will choose via a random method) to spread the art all over the world. You can send a traditional card or print out whatever you did digitally. Mind the size though! (DinA6, 105mm x 148mm, roughly 5 inches x 7 inches)
The challenge runs until Halloween, 31st of October, (surprise, surprise) and I will feature all works on my main page. On Halloween, I will note each participant with the name of the other participant he or she is to send the postcard to. You can then contact said participant to exchange adresses, whatever. Who can participate?
This is about having fun and spreading art!IMPORTANT
Every participant HAS
to send his/her PHYSICAL
postcard, no exceptions. In return you will receive art from another artist, that is only fair. Of course you can load up a copy/scan of your work here or elsewhere too
Even if the card is a copy/scan of your digital work, it has written text on it, a stamp, is tangible... that is part of the fun!
So only those who agree to send a REAL postcard (or a letter as that) should participate, please!Tell me, when you want to join! So I can put your icon here and advert you!I know that the cards will arrive at the participants much later than Halloween, but since shipping can take a loooong time internationally, I preferred a longer challenge time over ending the challenge in the middle of october.
Any questions? Just ask. I made this up before having my first coffee Participants so far:
Cronachan's voice... In my head he sounds like Thomas Kretschmann. An example:
The belief that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree... yeah, makes perfect sense.
