Another round of links and updates from your friends at Galway Pub Scrawl!
Our new Galway collective is on the move! Urban Sketchers Galway is our new endeavour, to bring us out to draw the town and anything else we find interesting. Follow us over there on the blog or on the new Facebook group. Our next sketch meet-up will be at the end of April at the Docks, Galway.
The application process for the Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year is now open, until May 1st. If you're interested, apply now - you need to fill in the form on the site and provide a self-portrait.
Rafael Grampá teamed up with Absolut and Facebook to make a sort of "crowd-sourced" plot for an animation short - it's a mix of 2-D and 3-D work and it's pretty stunning.
Anita linked us to Renae De Liz' Peter Pan project, a graphic novel coming out soon. You can check out a load of preview pages at the website.
Muddy Colors featured a process video of Rebecca Guay's "The Visitor", which is going to be the cover of Spectrum 21! Very nice.
Patrick linked us to an article about patterns being drawn on a potter's wheel. Don't let Mikhail Sadovnikov's hypnotic art entrance you... too much.
Helen linked us to two awfully cute Facebook groups - They Draw and Cook & They Draw and Travel. Really worth checking out.
And you HAVE to check out the finalists at the Portrait Society of America's annual contest. Beautiful.
This is an AMAZING tool for idea generation - Dogbomber's "Lady Knight" generator on Tumblr. Hit "Print Screen" and paste into your favourite image editor to get your random selection!
This tumblr, Movies in Color, makes up breakdowns of movie stills into their palettes - great work being done there.
Illustrators Ireland had a raffle for these pieces - congrats to those who won them, they're wonderful.
Buzzfeed provided a list of 20 animated GIF artists you have to follow - and you really do!
Helen linked to this cool feature, 10 questions for Jamie Hewlett on Phaidon.
We love you all, and are looking forward to seeing you in McSwiggans, Galway for our next Galway Pub Scrawl - #108 Galway Plague Scrawl.
