International Drawing Project

International Drawing Project
Café Royal Books is launching their first International Drawing Project in February and it sounds really amazing!

Artists are invited to email drawings, and images will be selected, printed, and hung in the gallery. The gallery will begin as an empty space and slowly get filled up. Visitors will be able to select work from the walls to re-print on a photocopier in the space and bind the work into a catalogue before leaving the gallery. There will be talks and screenings related to drawing, and artists Mike Redmond and Faye Coral Johnson will also be using the gallery as their studio for the duration of the project.

They are currently accepting submissions! Get full details here.

    This is so awesome! easy to get involved too, definitely submitting.

  • sciosis.

    awesome! definitely submitting.

  • Bill Roseberry

    Forgive me if I’ve overlooked one important detail; I don’t believe artists should be giving their work to the public for free and I see no mention in the invitation of either gratuity or of real compensation…??

      thats interesting – i have a completely opposite reaction here. i dont see anything wrong with submitting work here without expecting to get money, however i would see a problem with it if they sold the zine – but they aren’t. i like the idea that you can enter the gallery and put together your own zine and leave with it.

      its just my opinion, many people like the idea of paying to get into a gallery to see work and i have never liked that idea.

      Bill,

      Are you the artist from whom my mother purchase a large painting called, I believe,
      The Divers? She purchased this from a Bill Roseberry who lived in Washington, D.C.
      at the time — 1970s and studied at The Corcoran.

    I agree with jeff and im stoked on this!

  • http://tarane.carbonmade.com/ Becca

    I submitted and am pretty excited about this and I think this is a great way to get some attention as an artist who is only 17 and trying to find a styler of their own. so I completely agree with Jeff ! this is a great project in my opinion

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ Jeff

      good for you becca!

  • http://tarane.carbonmade.com/ Becca

    I am sorry, style, not styler haha

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ Jeff

      haha

  • Oreka

    Lolz @becca “styler” srry for laughing, I find everything funny. Anyway I definitely agree w/ Jeff but I also understand where Bill is coming from. But I, as an artist think that this is an amazing opportunity for myself as well as other artists that are not yet established and are trying to get themselves “out there”. I’ll most certainly be submitting a handful of my art pieces. It’d be totally brill to carry a book w/ my artwork in it. Thanks Booooooom for lookin out haha(it’d be great if we were paid for this)

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ Jeff

      yea i think thats part of the point here! good for you

  • Oreka

    And also, this is going to be an awesome addition to my portfolio!!!! Yusss! *Napoleon Dynamite Voice• 😀

    Thanks for sharing Jeff, and keep up that amazing booooom stuff!
    Take care.

Ultimate List of all the Best Art + Photo Tumblrs to Follow

ultimatearttumblrlist-4

 

*Update April 28th 2016 – We are continuing to update this list, removing Tumblrs that are no longer updated very frequently, and adding more as they are submitted. Please read the text below before submitting your Tumblr for consideration! Thank you all for the help, this has become an amazing resource – let’s keep it going!

 

I am compiling an extensive list of all the art and photography Tumblrs worth following. I would love your help to make this the ultimate list! Please leave a comment below with your suggestions and I will update this list with the best suggestions.

This list will focus as much as possible on Tumblrs that survey new work by different people and credit the creators of the images. Please do not submit Tumblrs that only focus on one person’s work (ie. your own personal portfolio) or mood boards that do not make any effort to link back to the source of the work.

Please share this with friends, the more input we have the better this resource will be!
