  • It’s Project Time!

    01.06.2009 / Miscellaneous


    A new year brings both beginnings and endings, and today marks both for 2009! The official ending of Part One of my project with Boooooooom has come and gone, and now— Part Two begins!

    For those of you who hibernated the ’08 winter away, click here to see Part One of our super-awesome collaboration. You’ve missed quite a lot of awesomeness, but don’t worry— much, much more is in store for you!

    You want to know more? Really? Here goes…

    Part Two is where all of you, my dear artistic readers, come in. You know all of these messages of encouragement floating about [you should— there are over 400!]? Pick one [yes, you!]. It doesn’t have to be your own message. Pick anyone’s message. And draw it. Paint it. Collage it. Art it. Do it. Whatever you do, however you do, just do. And you have thirty days to “do.” And then?

    Then you send it to me at erin[AT]designformankind[DOT]com with the subject line “Free Encouragement.” Your entry [4×6 dimensions, please!] will be sifted through and loved and canoodled and may possibly be chosen to be part of a VERY special and inspiring postcard pack for you to send MORE encouragement into the world. See how it works? It’s one big food chain of niceness!

    Be very excited. And get to work. Don’t worry if you choose the same message as others— there are plenty to go around, and duplicates are just fine! The more, the merrier. Comment below to declare your participation, tell your friends, and go forth— be inspired!

    Remember: deadline is FEBRUARY 1ST. Don’t be late. ;)
    [special thanks to Jeff at Boooooooom, who is basically the BEST collabo partner EVER!]
