I hereby announce the starting of a competition. The winner wins $10 discount on a Kate Gabrielle's Etsy store of his/her own choice:
Silents and Talkies (colorful portraits of actors and actresses)
Kate Gabrielle (funny art - give your walls a sense of humor!)
flapper doodle (where I could spend the rest of my life)
The assignment is for you to make a portrait of my Lolita persona. The caricature to the right is only an example - the portrait can be a serious one or a funny interpretation of how you think of me.
You may use whatever medium you like for the portrait: Photoshop, Paint, charcoal, your own blood - anything. The only restriction is (of course) that the painting isn't offending in any way. And I bet you all know that I, myself, am hardly offended that easily, so just use your common sense.
In the end of this post I have added a couple of pictures for help or inspiration, if needed.
The competition ends on March 1st 2010.
Audrey Hepburn Pop Art
8"x8" print, $15
4"x4" print, $5
Signed numbered matted art print, $15
Six cards, $10
Everyone that enters the competition gets a reward even if they don't win, meaning: all entries will be displayed (unless you say otherwise, of course) on my up-coming website http://lolitasclassics.com.
It's still under construction, I need to beef it up a bit before it's ready for a premiere!
Send your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org
Add your name or alias and website (if you have any) and also city, state and country (that's optional) in the email.
I hope you will think this is fun: no professional artistic talent is required, after all!
