Introducing, for the very first time...

The J-Blogosphere Arts Exhibition!

Show off your own talents while viewing masterpieces created by your blogfriends!

Not an artist? There's no better time to start! Try your hand at expressive doodling and display the results for our admiration.

There is no competition involved, just a fun game in which bloggers try to identify who created each piece. You will receive no criticism unless you request it.

Please help spread the word by putting the banner on your blog and linking to this post. My readership is pretty limited, and I'd really like this to be an opportunity for all of us to widen our circles and make connections throughout the J-blogosphere.

Rules for entry:
1. Scan or photograph one or two of your favorite pieces. May include any art forms, including photos of 3-D works.
2. Remove your real name from signed pieces.
3. Upload your image to a hosting service such as imageshack.us, resizing the image if necessary.
4. Email a link to think613 at yahoo dot com. Specify whether you would like your piece to be critiqued or just admired, and sign the email with your blog ID.
5. Deadline for submissions is Shabbos Chanukah.

Urk. Maybe I'll work on a revised banner tomorrow... have to call it a night. Any GD's out there want to help?

And do you know how I can make the image link to this post? It's not working like I thought...

highlight the image and choose the link on the format toolbar.

I haven't drawn anything in ages... but next lit class I'll get down to it!

I wish I could send something in. Unfortunately, I am not artistically inclinled and have absolutely no artwork. Anything submitted here will look totally amazing to me so if you need help admiring something, just send it my way, lol.

As you can see, I figured out the linking problem. Just had to insert is as html instead of a picture. Blogger isn't letting me put the html into my comment, so email me if you want the code for your blog.

B4S -- Drawing in lit class... what an efficient use of time!

HS -- Will do! Believe it or not, I've already received some really nice submissions. Can't wait for the rest to pour in!

Coolness!

Only one slight problem on my end...wanna teach me how to use a scanner?
:-P

Sure thing! Do you have one at home? Assuming you're in windows: Go to start>programs>accessories>scanner and camer wizard. The wiz will take you from there.

I usually do mine through picasa, though. It's freeware from google.

Sounds rather complicated.
Some of mine are on photobucket, others flickr and others just posted.
Now that there's no jpix...
