New Assignment

We need a new assignment. Any ideas? How about something easy that EVERYONE can do. Heather, maybe there's an assignment you are doing at school that you think we would enjoy doing? (not that it would be easy). Please post any ideas. I will pull from the idea list for the next month or two.

I can't tell if no one is visiting the blog, doesn't want to do an assignment, or ideas just aren't coming to mind.... but I'd really like to do some sort of entertainment editorial illustration.... like for an article about a tv show, movie, music or something like that.

I think that will be my next project... maybe that could be an assignment if anyone else is interested.

Tyler, thanks for the idea. I'll post that assignment right away!

And yes, I think people are just busy and are not checking the blog as often. We all knew it would lose steam. Any ideas on how to freshen things up?

That's a hard one. What about encouraging people to post all sorts of different stuff, like sketches, graphic design work, concept art stuff, everything. I don't know if that would make any kind of difference at all, just an idea.
Also, isn't there a way to sign up to receive an e-mail whenever there is a new post or something like that. Then maybe people could get little reminders in their e-mail to look at the blog, then they'd be encouraged to post their work too! Because I know I'll stop checking sometimes if it's been awhile since someone's posted.
Two pretty sad little ideas, but that's all I got.

I could post one of the articles I used for my techniques course at SCAD. There are: Music poster to advertise an upcoming musical event, Mad cow disease article from Discover Magazine, Night Terrors Newspaper article as a full color illust on the first page of the weekend section, Power Clowns article from New York Times, I think Dan Adel illustrated this article and well thats it for now - let me know.

Don, we can use your articles for next month's assignment. How about at the beginning of May, you post a link to those articles (or upload a PDF or whatever) and we can make the assignment to illustrate one of your choice. Thanks for the suggestion!

And Sarah, those are good ideas too. I'll try to get some excitement up in heeeeeeeerrre.

I would like to try an editorial illustration too, good idea Ty. I have a subject I would love to try and illustrate. It is an environmental issue, I think it would be neat to attempt the ink and watercolor/ drawn type..

anyway- I'll start brainstorming...
