Cloth Paper Scissors magazine has issued an artistic reader challenge in their Nov/Dec '08 issue that I thought might be of interest to you crafty writers out there -- they're look for art that is a play on words. Check out the details and rules here.
As if I don't have enough to do already, I've been toying with the idea of an year-long online art project in 2009. I guess the idea goes back to when I used to visit the blog of this amazing photographer who would post pics that he took pretty much on a daily basis. He had a great eye for detail and finding beauty in the most ordinary things (alas, he closed down his blog and retired from the internet some time ago.)
I am nowhere near as competent as he was, but I often have some interesting experiences with nature, and I had a blast taking photos in Savannah. Keeping that in mind, I'd like to challenge myself to take one decent photograph every day in 2009, and post them online in an album or on a photo blog. No words, just the pics. It was mostly be for myself, to chronicle an entire year in images, and give me a reason to practice using the camera every day.
Have you ever done an online/offline project like this, or considered it? I'm wondering how tough it is to keep up with it, so if you have, let me know what you think in comments.
