Attendees: Have you ever looked at the art featured in the Ducks Deluxe Arts & Crafts Show and Auction
and wished your pairing was up there? Have you ever wondered what the pictures in your head would look like on canvas?
Artists: Want to know what bidders are looking for this year? Or maybe you're in need of inspiration?
Well, you're in luck! This year, in order to make Ducks Deluxe more interactive and targeted to our attendees, we've decided to open up art-specific prompting in a kind of "Big Bang" meets "Kink Meme".
This is how it will work: Anyone can leave a prompt for art. Prompts can be as specific or as vague as you want them to be, and you can leave as many prompts as you like. We just ask that each prompt be a separate comment, to make it easier for artists to find ideas. Please prompt HERE on the Dreamwidth post!
Artists are then free to browse the prompts, stake a claim, and make some art. Once your masterpiece is complete, we'd like each artist to print, mat and submit the end result to our art show
. These pieces can be put up for auction like any other art in the show; prompters don't get dibs on the artwork itself, but if it turns out exactly as you imagined it, maybe you'll want to bid on it!
You don't have to be an attendee to submit prompts or to make art, but you do have to be an attendee to bid on and/or purchase the finished products submitted to Ducks Deluxe.
So if you have friends who would love to play along, please spread the word! If you have questions, don't hesitate to leave a comment, or you can send an e-mail to email@example.com
