The Art Stew - Art Improv Contest -Week One opened yesterday.
I believe there are many readers who are not part of the Authors Promoting Authors Facebook Group (oddly, I find that refreshing, these readers know APA is more than a group on Facebook) and I really wanted to share the information about this contest to the masses.
It is self-promotion but it is very creative and allows people to be interactive. It also draws people to the Facebook Group.
Yes, its a good promotional idea. Yet, it is so much fun! Remember the "Choose Your Own Adventure" Books? Ever been to an improv show?
This is like those, except in art. Here's the scoop:
Join in on creating an improvisational illustration! The final piece will be on 11"x17" bristol board and drawn in pencil.
Best part of this is that after one month there will be a random draw to determine who gets to own the artwork!
First things first, you have to join the Facebook group - Many Faces Art. Secondly join in on the discussion. http://www.facebook.com/groups.php?ref=sb#/group.php?gid=35251338001
There are four stages to this event. Members of the group will offer suggestions to pick the setting, the antagonist(s) and the protagonist(s).
Starting with week 1 (which begins on Monday July 27th and runs until Sunday August 2) the discussion will be to pick the setting. This could be anything from a library to the moon and anywhere in between. A random draw will be made from the suggestions for all stages.
Week 2 runs from Monday August 3 through Sunday August 9 - and the discussion will be to choose the antagonists. This one could be anyone from feral smurfs to ninja accountants.
Week 3 runs from Monday August 10 through Sunday August 16 - and the discussion will be to choose the protagonists. Again this could be anyone from the Cheshire Cat to the Batman.
At the end of each stage I will post some sketches of the setting, the antagonist(s), and the protagonist(s) to offer a glimpse of the creative process.
Fourth week will see me announcing the winner of the illustration by random drawing and posting the image on the group page.
* Multiple comments from the members result in multiple entries. Comments for each stage will be taken into account for the draw for the final artwork.
Interactive, fun and easy.
Go join in the Art Stew!
