The 30 Day Drawing Challenge is ABOUT TO START! This is going to be great. The drawing challenges have been my favourite time of year the last two years, and I'm expecting it to be better again this year. Go check out the topics and get ready to post Art on the Facebook page!
The Islanders released a publication - Black Night Magazine. You can buy it on their Storenvy page - I highly recommend it.
Speaking of the Islanders - tangentially, Sceitse, the Cork-based outdoor sketch group, were featured in ImagineFX #110. Pretty good for them, but as sample Art was included from times we met up with them... some of us were featured in it! You can see details over on Jay's blog.
What else? So much else. We're giving a talk in Charlie Byrne's on the 5th, What *is* all this Urban Sketching anyway?, there's booking available for the next Dr Sketchy's Galway - The Wizard of Oz on the 14th and we're out drawing Quay Street for Urban Sketchers Galway #004 on the 22nd of June... oh jeez, you guys, there's probably a million more again. I'll try and slip in more updates during the month if possible, but this blog is going to be filled with ART for the drawing challenge in June. Next Admin Monday update on the 14th of July!
Ger linked to this great article on an old-timey strongman's exercise manual. The Illustrations are great drawing fodder!
The Met Museum announced that they were going to give free access to more than 400,000 digital images from their collection.
Alexandra Khitrova decided to try her hand at concept design only about a year ago, and is now one of the design leads on a movie? Gives hope to everyone for their career prospects!
Ruth pointed out this interesting logo contest. Could you design a "Smokey Bacon Beer" label?
The Society of Illustrators had their annual Microvisions auction - affordable Masterworks. If you're a person who picked up one of these beauties, I am insanely jealous.
Ger also linked this for us -
Have you seen Project 2501?
Marko Djurdjevic and Gerald Parel are using this tumblr to post the sketches they make while on the phone or in meetings!
And you can now sign up for PACT.
Come join us in McSwiggans on the 9th of JUN for our next Pub Scrawl #112 (and the 9th day of our Drawing Challenge) - just another Manic Monkey.
