Everyone is allowed to suggest favorites to us! If we like the piece you suggest, we may request it into the group gallery.
Anyone can become a member. Memberships are automatically approved.
Pieces for consideration should be suggested to favorites. Members have a separate folder than the general rabble.
Contributors are those who consistently and actively contribute art to us, or who are invited to participate by Museum staff.
If you think you meet this requirement, send a request with at least one link to your work that is in the museum.
Blank membership requests will probably be denied.
Submissions to the Unverified Display Only folder are up for display consideration only. See note below for physical pieces!
If you'd like us to consider selling your work, submit it to the Unverified TPM Store folder. It will be automatically approved. Commission rates need to have already been discussed, otherwise the default rate will apply*. See below for more details.
Submissions can also be made to Random Stuff and Museum Photos, subject to approval. Show off the pictures you took of our convention appearances!
Since the Museum travels to conventions that are kid-friendly, all art must be appropriate for all ages.
Physical Art - Pieces that will be sent to us for display.
We don't display images/photos of physical art, so plans must be in place for us to receive your piece(s) before you submit images of them to the gallery. If plans are not in place, and are not made in a reasonable amount of time, we reserve the right to remove the images from the gallery.
Generally, only one deviation per item is allowed, so make a collage!
Once your piece has arrived safely, we will move the image to the Featured folder!
Artwork - Images that will be printed by us for display.
Images should be of displayable quality. This means: finalized art with good colors and no watermarks. Your signature, or a small logo are fine.
By submitting artwork to the Display Only folder, you are authorizing us to print a single copy for display in the Museum. It will not be sold or given away without your express permission. It is also probable that we will want to include artwork in thumb-nail size for flyers and promotional material. You will be credited in these of course!
By submitting artwork to the TPM Store folder, you are authorizing us to sell high quality copies of your artwork at conventions and other physical events, as well as print a copy for the Museum display. No web sales will be made without prior authorization. You will receive the agreed-upon commission per print sold. Unless specified, we assume perpetual print rights, but you can withdraw pieces at any time. Just send us a note stating which.
If the dA image is not of sufficient resolution, is watermarked or otherwise unprintable, you will be contacted if we decide to print your piece. If you cannot (or refuse to) provide a higher resolution, we reserve the right to remove the image from the gallery.
Once your artwork has been printed, we will move the image to the Featured folder!
