CALL FOR ENTRIES
Hello everyone! The Ladies of Literature project is pleased to announce that we’re beginning work on Volume 2! We’re hoping to make this book even bigger and more beautiful than Volume 1. We’ve invited our Volume 1 veterans to come back to contribute, but we’re looking for even more fresh talent to fill the pages!
For those who don’t know, Ladies of Literature Volume 1 was an illustration anthology that celebrated our favorite female book characters and authors.
This time around, we’re still working with the same premise, but we’re placing a stronger emphasis on illustrations that tell stories. We want well-composed illustrations that showcase exactly why you fell in love with your character or author. Make us want to pick up their stories for ourselves—like the ultimate book recommendation.
The book is going to be Kickstarted to cover cost of printing and compensation for all contributing artists. All artists will get a copy of the book. Any remaining Kickstarter and book sale funds will be donated directly to in-classroom childhood literacy projects via DonorsChoose.org.
(That being said, obviously this is a project that may include copyrighted characters so if we run into legal trouble, we’ll have to shut the whole thing down.)
We’re aiming to have 75 artists in total so if you’re interested in participating, fill out this Google Form with your name and portfolio by AUGUST 31, 2014. We’ll notify our final choices by mid-September. Thank you! So excited to see all of your work!

SO MANY THINGS TOMORROW.
The 3rd “Suggestivism" group show of paintings will be opening at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica, California on Saturday, August 16th. Curated by Nathan Spoor, the term “Suggestivism" is derived from a late 19th century art historian Sadakichi Hartmann who explain it as "an art that is possibly more than it seems, or possibly an art that is not what it seems." The show will feature brand new work from 42 artists including those above: Hsiao-Ron Cheng, Joe Vaux, Charlie Immer and Sarah Joncas. You can see an extended preview of the show and more of it’s great work below:
