1.) Featured work must have been made in the past three weeks, which also means you have time to make something shiny and new too if you want. You have plenty of time! Feel free to wait as long as you need to to send in something, as this is not a first-come-first serve basis. (Deviations between Nov 14-Dec 20 are acceptable for submission.) Please send your suggested features to me via a note as "Swap Show Submission" or anything close to that.
2.) I will probably have preference towards unseen artists, but we'll see what happens. For the intent of this first batch of features though, I will probably overlook this.
3.) It does not have to be your artwork. In fact, I encourage looking for other artists outside of your general viewing zone to find to feature. You might run into something cool. :]
4.) You may submit your own work though, of course. I also encourage that even more. If you have more than one submission, you may send up to three, though I'll only pick one. You can also send three pieces from three different artists (yourself included).
5.) Featured work should preferably be of completed nature. Avoid submission of sketches, wips and speedpaints, though if they are particularly striking, it may be featured regardless. I'm going to skirt past sketch/art dumps for the time being. Let's get some cool, amazing and inspiring work in here!
6.) I'm going to try feature as many people as possible but depending on how many people submit, I may not be able to feature everyone. If not, feel free to try again next time. This is about self-improvement, sharing work, and having fun.
7.) You should be proud of it! Be passionate about your work! Have fun and make great art.
Cool wedding project! Please help out.As some of you may already know, I've recently started working on a little project for my best friend's upcoming wedding. Throughout the 20ish years that she and I have known each other, her friendship, love and encouragement have been a few of the only things that have remained constant in my life and I want to do something very special for her and her bride-to-be on their special day. It pains me to say that my friend's family has been less than supportive of her relationship with another woman and I can only imagine how much that hurts and discourages her.
I want to show her that there are people all over the world who support her right as a human being to love and share her life with whomever she wants. That's where you, the reader come in. I'm asking for photos from as many cities in the world as possible, showing support and encouragement for Jackie and Kim on their special day. When I've collected enough photos, I'm going to create a slideshow to be shown at the wedding.
