Art Takes Times Square 2012

I’m participating again in an Artists Wanted open call. This time it’s for a presentation of my art on a large scale in New York City in Art Takes Times Square 2012. I’m presenting some entirely new pieces from ‘The Verge’, as well as some of the best from ‘We don’t have to think like that anymore’. You can participate in the judging of the competition by clicking the “Browse and Judge” button on the Art Takes Times Square main page. Make sure to collect my portfolio to help me onto this massive stage. Additionally, if you collect the winner you have a chance of winning “a $5,000 dream weekend in NYC.”

The submission deadlines for Art Takes London are closed, and I’m in. Swing by to visit my profile, and make an honest vote. It counts toward a people’s choice award and does not affect the judging. Chocolate frogs for everyone who votes! It was a little beastly trying to write the optional text part of the submission. The restriction was 2,500 characters…CHARACTERS. The first round of writing, for the initial submission deadline of June 1, took six hours of trying to distill my bio and, more importantly, my statement of my overall project into as few words as possible, which still turned out to be way more than would fit in the text box. By the time I finished, I realized that it sounded way too dry and clinical. Fortunately, they extended the final deadline to the 7th, so I reworked the whole thing yesterday and made my final submission. Swing on by and vote what you think about it.
