SNOWTACULAR! scores a 2.81!

GREAT JOB EVERYONE!!! it should've score at least a 5 but you know how it goes...anyway, it was a super fun project, i hope you all had as much fun as i did. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!



new due date is MONDAY, NOVEMBER 24!!!!!!!!


okay everyone, with Halloween almost upon us and no sign of the Monster Mash Up being in the print queue any time soon. I'd say it's time for another EPIC COLLAB! With Isajoe's blessing the torch has been passed down and I am going to do my very best to come close to the acheivement that was the Monster Mash Up.


our theme will be SNOWTACULAR!


everyone just design your very own special snowflake character...go crazy with it, remember no two snowflakes are alike!


I think we should also add the challenge of ONE color! (halftones are acceptable)


it will most likely be on a blue shirt and I think we are going to go with white flocked ink...oooh exciting :)


But for now let's get some of the administrative stuff outta the way...


First: We need to come up with a Catchy Name for the project


Second: We need people to sign up


Due Date: Friday, November 21


When you're done with your snowflake email me the file at jon.barthell@gmail.com. You can send me an Illustrator or Photoshop file. If you do it in photoshop make sure to keep it 300dpi. If you don't have either program, you can draw it, scan it (preferably greyscale) and send me the jpeg and I'll do the rest. That's all for now...LET'S DO IT!


Don't forget to check out our Flickr page to see everyone's contributions!

I'll give this a shot. Also, I think there should be a standard window size.

jmeaspls
jmeaspls profile pic Alumni

these will be very small windows on the shirt

zipperking
zipperking profile pic Alumni

I was think that, but I didn't know what it should be...

againstbound
againstbound profile pic Alumni

I think the 1 color thing is to make it a blet print, thus allowing more windows on the back and increased size on them, right?

Malcolm Man

PICK ME!!!


I was sooooo pissed that I didn't get in on the monster mash!

starr226
starr226 profile pic Alumni

many many small windows?
maybe a window template should be used?

zipperking
zipperking profile pic Alumni

exactly hector...if we get that many participants

ISABOA
ISABOA profile pic Alumni

AWESOME!! This is the best idea ever, I already got an idea!

in my humble opinion:
Jon can resize the windows as needed while composing, everyone should just do windows without concern of relation to other windows and size etc. But keep it simple to a point, knowing that they are going to probably have smal square footage.

zipperking
zipperking profile pic Alumni

would you like to make a template Starr? or I can...either way.

aled
aled profile pic Alumni

You definitely need to do a template for the windows, or it is in danger of looking awful. IMO!

okay Joe has spoken...everyone do their own windows :) sorry I'm new at this.

ISABOA
ISABOA profile pic Alumni

AHH - , my ideas suck - grid or haphazard - that is on the table for sure

zipperking
zipperking profile pic Alumni

Okay...okay...let's put it to a vote!

Who would like a template and who wants to go Freeform?

Krakaboom
Krakaboom profile pic Alumni

I think visually it would be a lot more interesting if all the windows were different in size, shape and design.

FRICKINAWESOME
FRICKINAWESOME profile pic Alumni

Not really into the windows idea, but hey, I'll give it another go! Count me in yo!

FRICKINAWESOME
FRICKINAWESOME profile pic Alumni

Pkus if it's one color, then it can be a belt print and all over the tee.

lordog

haphazard ftw!

i'm in...my window will suck, but oh well. :)

againstbound
againstbound profile pic Alumni

I think not necessarily a template, but establish the dimensions beforehand. So you can vary in shape and style without going over your neighboor's apartment.

Maybe check first an adecuate size, so the windows won't be too small, count the spaces available and thenstart giving away those spots.

If there are a few that go untaken they could go to other people that want to make a doule sized window or something.

starr226
starr226 profile pic Alumni

you could make alterations to the window - additions/subtractions, but presumably the end effort will be as if you were looking at a building and seeing all these different things inside different windows, right? a variety of completely different windows will blow that conceptually out of the water.
It maintains a unity in all the visual discourse that will take place in the windows.

Malcolm Man

Just let people draw whatever they want and then have the architect resize them so they all fit.

krokun
krokun profile pic Alumni

I am signing up definately. As probably said before, I think spacial allocations is the way to go, that way you can do whatever and not infringe on others without the need for a template as such.

Email, I choose you!

WhitneyBeth
WhitneyBeth profile pic Alumni

OOH! me me me!

zipperking
zipperking profile pic Alumni

so what if we kept our windows in a format that could be scaled to say...3"(h) X 4"(w)

WhitneyBeth
WhitneyBeth profile pic Alumni

hrmm... i think the scaling thing could work, although i agree with krakaboom that it might make for a more visually interesting shirt if there were windows with different aspect ratios and sizes. perhaps having more than one option and having people pick as a compromise?

jmeaspls
jmeaspls profile pic Alumni

I vote for you doing your own window! I think it'd look better than a gridded window system

zipperking
zipperking profile pic Alumni

yeah, the more I think about it....I'll just scale whatever people send me and i'll make it work. I don't want to hinder anybody with perameters. I say just GO FOR IT!

chelly

oooooooh beltprint

krokun

what if this gets printed? it may lower the chances for the collab me thinks.

zipperking
zipperking profile pic Alumni

AW CRAP! i forgot about that one...and it's a collab too....

zipperking
zipperking profile pic Alumni

WE NEED A NEW THEME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

starr226
starr226 profile pic Alumni

maybe skip a theme entirely?
Just do a buttload of characters - each contributor is allowed one character.
Unless, we're relying on a theme for marketability.

ISABOA
ISABOA profile pic Alumni

I am still fond of superheroes....

or:
tractors (lots of potential here)
cars
antiquated tools
underwear (we could beadazzle)
text blocks


-just brainstorming here -

jess4002

do something with winter! people can draw snowmen, deers, snow machines, elves, trees, lights, etc?

ISABOA
ISABOA profile pic Alumni

ohh - starr has a good idea, total chaos

Kookaberry
Kookaberry profile pic Alumni

I'll do it.

Kookaberry
Kookaberry profile pic Alumni

Whatever it is. I didn't actually read.

zipperking
zipperking profile pic Alumni

I think someone had thrown around the idea of Snowflakes in another blog. Maybe we could all do a snowflake character since snowflakes are all different anyway.

What have you done to your profile page? 9 times out of 10 when I open up this blog or any other thing on your page it crashes Safari. No one elses page does that. Weird.

I like the characters idea. Snowflakes would make sense though with winter coming.
