I thought I'd make the
company itself into a character. I also like the idea of a big boulder golem
being innocent and wanting to give gifts to the local wildlife despite its
exterior This piece was created by Joshua Smyth
It's been a while since the last Boulder media artblog competition, but we thought we'd try and end the year on a high by announcing an in-house artblog challenge to design Boulder Media a Christmas card.
Artwork can be in whatever medium you like; drawn, painted, digital, photograph, sculpture, collage.
Feel free to add a festive greeting to your design If you wish.
The deadline for submissions will be the 13th of December with the winner, runner up and 3rd place entries receiving a prize.
For those of you who haven't joined the Boulder media artblog but would like to please provide Gillian Comerford or myself with your personnel email address (not your work one). You will need to be a member of the blog so that you can upload your image.
Our goal for next year is to keep the blog running with a new theme announced on a monthly basis.
A huge congratulations to Rachel Wilson who was our last winner for her Tony and the Ducks for our Gangster theme. Was a super submission! You can see more of Rachels beautiful artwork here
And a big shot out to Arianna and Estrela who came in 2nd and 3rd place
I was inspired by Piotr Jabłoński. The man is the art equivalent of the Terminator. Tireless, merciless, unstoppable. He uses de-saturated colour palettes with splashes of intense colour, and limits his value range to create some really subtle paintings.
I started this on Sunday evening. I don't know what the hell it is to be honest hahaha
One hour ago I remembered that tomorrow is the deadline for this month's theme. Here's my very, very quick tribute to Mucha, the first artist that I have seen in my childhood. My mother painted on glass a copy of the painting that inspired this little drawing.
A huge welcome back and an even bigger welcome to some new members of the Bouldermedia Artblog. I am delighted to announce that the Artblog is back up and running after a few little changes.
The rules are basically the same:
One theme running for roughly one month.
Themes are to be stuck to as near as possible.
Any medium will be accepted.
Keep it clean, this is a professional Artblog!
You can post as many times as you wish.
All submissions are to be done in your own time and you are not under any obligation to submit, this is all a bit of fun, so don't put yourself under any unnecessary pressure.
There will be an inhouse vote done in Boulder at the end of the month and the winner will receive a prize for their work!!! This is a chance for Boulder creatives to showcase some of their personal work.
So without further adu, let's be having the first Artblog theme:
Artists/Artist who inspire me
Good Luck and I cannot wait to see what you guys post over the next month.
Congrats Joe Loftus on winning our theme of Bears this month. You can check out more of Joe's work on his tumblr here
As usual a big shout out to all of you guys that posted and voted, great work as always. Your the best!!!
Next theme to follow shortly.
I'll kick this theme off with a story. In the Lorena Province of Afghanistan in 2001, or thereabouts, a toddler belonging to a nomadic tribe wandered off from his tent and was missing for three days. He was eventually found, safe and well, in the hills miles away, in the cave of a she-bear. The bear was curled protectively around the child and had apparently been nursing him. He was taken home to his relieved parents; no record seems to exist however for what happened to the bear. One likes to hope for the best.
And the winner of the David Bowie theme is once again the super talented Melissa Malone. Well done!!! Thank you so much to the other submissions, all very deserving of the prize but we can only have one winner.
I'll be taking a short break from the Artblog as Studio 51 takes over for out next theme.
Stay tuned for more details!
Happy Friday :)
This was the first weekend I got a chance to finish this
I thought I’d do something a bit more grown up. This comes from his Lazarus vid, loved the
lighting in that and wanted to do most recent Boo-ie. (He said himself once even he didn’t know
how to pronounce that. He thought
“Bowie” was a Scottish name and did actually think it was pronounced “Boo-ie”,
but I just say it that way because I’m being deliberately stupid)
..but then, there’s
only so much grown-upness one can take…
