After the long and painful status quo, we are finally moving forward! We have decided on the theme for the artbook!
And the theme is... 喜怒哀楽!!
It's read as "kidoairaku" in Japanese, these kanji characters stand for 4 different emotions... Happiness, Anger, Sorrow, and Comfort.
Each contributor/artist would make 4 works, one for each emotion, and all the works will be in the artbook. You're free to express the emotions whatever way you want. ^^
For the members, they can make one for each emotion or just one work, and the work will be subject to judging by the panel whether or not it will be included in the artbook.
Since we want this to be a reality, we're setting deadlines... ^^
The deadline for the contributors will be SEPTEMBER 15, 2012.
For aspiring contributors (current members or non-members who want to become contributors), your audition works are due JUNE 15, 2012.
Please let me know if these deadlines are too unrealistic for you or if you want it to be pushed to some date later...
And please let me know what you guys think!!!
Thank you so much!
