Project #3 – Instructions!

Booooooom! Project #3! Draw your own face with your eyes closed! There is a submission form at the end of this post. I will gather up submissions and create a gallery of your submitted work. Be sure to include your name, email, and website so other visitors can see who made what! Be sure to read all of the rules for this one! As an added incentive, two entrants will each win 500 Business Cards courtesy of Uprinting.com!

RULES

1. You must draw your face with your eyes closed! But this can be interpreted two different ways. Either you have your eyes closed while you draw OR your drawing is of you with your eyes closed. These will produce very different results either of which will be fantastic. Examples below!

2. You don’t not have to be an “artist” or “know how to draw”, in fact, if you haven’t drawn that much it would be even more exciting to see you submit something! But it should be your best attempt at drawing your own face.

3. No photographs! This is not a photo project. Please draw something on a piece of paper and scan it in or draw digitally with a tablet.

EXAMPLES

Krissy made this with her eyes open (notice the eyes are closed).

Terri made this with her eyes closed (not looking at the paper).

Both of these are acceptable!

PRIZES
One month from now, I will randomly select 2 winners from the submitted entries (i’ll use random.org or put names in a hat). Uprinting will contact the winners, and they will each get 500 of their very own business cards!

There won’t always be prizes for the projects but I have had offers from several companies so I decided to try this out, we’ll see how it goes. I know how designers and artists are always in need of business cards – heck, I still need to make myself some cards!

Big thanks to Uprinting – Business Card Printing!

Submit your own entry!

GIRLSCHOOL x Society6

Deap Vally x Natalie Foss

 

Musician Anna Bulbrook (The Bulls, Airborne Toxic Event, and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros) recently launched GIRLSCHOOL, a Los Angeles-based music festival and collective that celebrates female voices. A portion of proceeds from each event go to a girl-positive organization, and this year’s festival (Jan 27-29) will support Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls LA, a 501c3 social justice organization using loud music to nurture self-esteem and self-expression in young girls.

Society6 has joined forces with GIRLSCHOOL to pair up musicians and artists to create visuals inspired by the music, to be displayed at the event. See a few more of the collaborations below!
