About the project

I’ve always found it hard to be consistent about sticking with art projects as I tend to go through very creative phases, only to see my motivation slump after a week or so.  But it’s much easier when I have others willing to create along with me.  That being said,  this blog is not about me or my art.  It’s about us – the collaborators.

How it works:

1. I post an example of our theme/inspiration.  This may range from everyday objects to an illustration of a certain art technique.

2. We each work on our version for a specified amount of time  (a week or two?) using various medias: paint, clay, film, food, cloth, digital means, ink, anything and everything. This could even take on non-visual forms such as writing or music! Use your imagination, there are really no limits.  That’s the point of art isn’t it?

3. Submit a photo or scan to me by the deadline.   I’ll post them the following day  so we can see the results all at once.

Please help me by making suggestions so we  can make the most of this concept more quickly.  I can’t wait to see all the awesome things that we’re going to come up with.

  1. I like!

    • I feel the deadlines should be short. If we are allowed to drag it out; we probably will. While a week sounds short, I’m sure all of us can use the practice of having to plan/create quickly. And if you miss one them, you know the next one is around the corner.

    • Maybe after 2-4 rounds, I can host a show at my place easily enough.

    • Is the inspiration the paint cans? When is it going up?

    • ALSO, any friend of Erin’s who wants to cut some wood at my place in West Covina for this or any other project should take advantage of this offer. I have:
    – band saw
    – table saw
    – large belt sander
    – compound miter saw
    – nail gun
    – drill press
    – dremel tool

    I’ll teach you, but if you’re scared, I’ll do it for you. Tuesday/Thursday is our Art Night here, but I can be available most other nights.

    • Hey brother! I think I like the idea of a week-long interval as well.

      And I hadn’t thought of a show, but that would be really fun to see people’s work in person. Great idea, thanks!
