Your Impressions please!

2nd Annual FanstRAvaganza

This is the first year I will be taking part in the festivities for this RA jam-packed event!  Last year at this time I was just beginning this blog so my first year anniversary will take place during this same week!

The idea is to have a new post daily for week of March 14 to March 21. I hope I will be up to this ideal, as I barely post that often in a month!

My RA related theme is The Impressionists -- that wonderful biopic of Claude Monet and his group of revolutionary painters who founded a new style of painting called Impressionism.

I would like to ask your help in sending me a piece of your artwork, either inspired by Mr. Armitage or by Monet's works. 

Even if you haven't picked up a drawing pencil in years, now is your chance to give it a try! If you are an artist or a dabbler, dust off one of your earlier works or give me a new one -- whatever you please!  This is not a contest, simply a display of the talent of the RA fan world. (I might even try one myself!)

The only thing I ask is that you keep it G Rated (or at least PG) as I would like to keep this blog available to all ages.

I am sorry that I have not given you more notice.  I have been so busy and also feeling quite under the weather lately.  I hope that you will have enough time to send me something by next Wednesday March 9th.  Please send to:  phylly3@gmail.com
If you have any questions, please send that along to me as well.
Thanks for participating!

I only draw nude people...lol....just kidding, cant draw at all:)

JaneGS said...

How fun...I can't draw to save my life, but I will definitely be back to appreciate the efforts of others. I loved the video series of The Impressionists--really good.

Phylly3 said...

@Avalon and JaneGS -- That's okay if you don't want to add to my fan art collection. Just do me a favour and pass the word along if you have any artsy friends! ;)

Great concept! I'm going to tweet and facebook about it. :)

Oh dear, I tried posting with my new blog and my username is "fanvideos" but I'm bccmee everywhere! Must log in as myself next time. Experimenting and mistakes are good, or so I tell myself. Anyway, as I said in my previous post, I am tweeting and blogging your request for artwork. :)

Hello, Phylly3!
I saw about your request in Bccmee's twitter profile and it really awoke my interest in it. I think I can try draw something for you or share some of my old works.

bccmee said...

Woohoo, I look forward to seeing your work, GizTheGunslinger. :)

Phylly3 said...

@bccmee-- Thanks so much for your help in spreading the word!
@Giz -- So happy you are interested! I have favourited your work at Deviant Art so I was going to ask you for something anyway. :) I can't wait to see what you send me!
