Printing time

I've been in the printshop this month, and I thought I'd toss up what I've done already. I've also completed three more from my Bell Island aquatint series, but I've yet to scan those in.

This one comes in black or pink.

Art Deadlines

I came across this webpage today: Art Deadlines List
Seems like a lot of text to slog through, but if you're up to the task, there's probably several opportunities there for you. Every now and then I'm hankering for a deadline, aren't you?

And here's another one: Artshow. I just Googled art deadlines.
ALSO: I just found this Canadian portrait competition, with a $3000 prize (although the website looks a bit shabby): http://www.kingstonprize.ca/ Anyone heard of this before? The deadline is May 1st, and portraits may be either paintings or drawings, and must be made from life within the 24 months preceding the closing date. From the site:
Jury members are Eliza Griffiths, artist (Montreal); Bill Kirby, Executive Director of the Centre for Canadian Contemporary Art (Toronto); and Richard Rhodes, editor of Canadian Art magazine (Toronto).

From the entries received, the jury will select thirty portraits for the exhibition, which will be held in October 2007 at the Firehall Theatre in Gananoque, Ontario. The prizewinners will be announced at a Gala Preview, and the People’s Choice will be announced near the closing of the exhibition.
Upside: You only have to send a CD, not the actual artwork. Downside: $25 entry fee.
You can see last year's finalists here.

Style Wars

Hoo boy, I just saw this awesome documentary on Google Video from 1983 called Style Wars. It's about the graffiti scene in New York, particularly in and on the public trains. There's a lot of break dancing in there too. And now I've got Grandmaster Flash stuck in my head. But watch this instead of Deal or No Deal. And everyone was way skinnier back then, hey?
