Another little zine is ready for a trip into the world outside my studio, (a few have escaped already). It will be the "Prize" for the first 5 commentators if they don't already have it and would like one. Here is the plan sent to me by my good friend Helen Anderson. I won't publish any more of the 8 page zine so it will be a surprise for you (it is not as scarey as the cover might suggest).
Copy&Paste this (see below) as your latest entry on your favourite social website (in your case it would be on your blog)
* Pay It Forward Art-making Project for 2014 *
I promise to make a small work of art for the first five people who comment on this post and say "YES, I want in". A 'like' alone is not enough of a commitment, nor is a comment about thinking Pay It Forward is a great idea.
You must in turn post this as your status update and make something for the first five who comment on your status.
The rules are simple:
– It has to be your work, made by you, and the recipient must receive it before 2014 ends.
– It can be anything art-based: a drawing/illustration or a conceptual work of art, a photograph, a knitted item, cross-stitch, paper maché – or anything in between.
I'm paying this forward thanks to Helen Anderson. Yes, you can be on each other's pay it forward lists.
First five, GO!
PS. It doesn't matter if you aren't an artist, try something out, google/ YouTube how to make stuff, step out of those boundaries.
Step 2For the first five people who comment on your blog entry saying they want to participate, you will do an art trade with them that must be completed by December 31st 2014. I would count as the first person so technically you only need another four. If you find your friends are keen you can do as many as you want.
Step 3All forms of art count including creative writing , photography, digital anything goes!
