Hey everybody, it’s that time again! We’re having try-outs for new artists for the Line it is Drawn. I’m looking to add five new artists to the Line.
The try-out period is going to be two weeks long, with pieces being posted on December 12th and December 19th. So if you’re interested in being a Line it is Drawn artist, just send me a jpg drawing (preferably at least 1000 pixels wide) to firstname.lastname@example.org (“Line it is Drawn Try-Out” should be your subject heading) based on the following choices that I will list below. Along with your drawing, include your name and your website if you have one. The pieces don’t have to be colored, but I won’t lie, there’s a decent chance that colored pieces might stand out more when it comes to decision-time.
On December 12th, I will post the first batch of drawings. Then I’ll give you all a new set of choices. You draw one of them, as well, and then on the 19th, after I post the second set of drawings, I’ll have a poll where people will vote for their favorites and the top two picks of the public will automatically make it and then I’ll pick three more artists by myself (maybe with an anonymous panel of experts helping out, as well). The new artists will start in January.
Being a part of the Line it is Drawn is for artists who are willing to do a drawing every week in about 5 days time. Being part of the Line is not a paid gig. I’m certainly fine with people missing a week or two, but if you don’t think you can meet that schedule, please don’t try out. Most of our artists are here every week, so it is certainly a doable achievement, but please be realistic with your abilities to hit a deadline before you offer yourself up as a possible addition to the Line it is Drawn. For instance, this try-out is for two weeks. If you don’t show up both weeks, you’re not going to be eligible to be picked (I'm giving people extra time for the first piece - but then they'll have the normal quick turnaround for the second piece).
I welcome your try-outs! This should be a lot of fun to see a bunch of new faces! Remember, if you think you can hit the deadlines and you want to do this, pick a choice from below, draw it and then e-mail it to me at email@example.com by noon Pacific time on December 12th.
