    Default The GP Black Book Project

    Howdy,

    My name is S. Blake and I am an active member of gigposters.com and owner of Monster Press Custom Screen Printing in Vancouver Canada.

    The Gig Posters site has helped me daily with technical information, boosting my art career and confidence, friends and peers I would have never known otherwise, etc.

    I feel it is my turn to give something back and keep the karma loop rolling.

    So in the spirit of "1000 journals" and "Look at Book" I would like to start a GIGPOSTERS BLACK BOOK PROJECT.

    Run Down: 45-50 artists will fill a 100 page blank book, each person having one spread (two facing pages) at their disposal. Remaining pages will be reserved for stickers, misc notes, etc. the finished book will be scanned and an online gallery (72 dpi) will be made with a downloadable pdf (300 dpi) so anyone interested can print out their own copies. The original book will be auctioned on eBay, and the cash will go to Clay for all his hard work on www.gigposters.com

    Your Turn: When you receive the book, fill one spread (two facing pages) with anything you want and send it to the person on the list nearest to your location. Contact them for the address via their email on the list. Try to keep it for only a few days if possible, to keep the book moving and give everyone a chance to do their thing. After you have participated and sent the book on it's way, email me and I will cross you off the list!

    Spread Etiquette:
    No more than one spread (two facing pages); any content, any medium, so long as subsequent pages are not damaged (think twice before using wet media, markers, as they may bleed through the sheet and ruin the next person's spread. Spraymounting a premade wet media piece onto your page is a good alternative). Adding your screen name (and or real name) and country is encouraged. Do not remove pages, even if you made mistakes and/or "ruined" them.

    There is be a dedicated mini-site to this project at the following link:

    http://www.monsterpress.ca/scott/blackbook


    So that everyone can keep up to date with what is going on with the project!

    If you are interested please email scott@monsterpress.ca the following information:

    1. Your name or alias
    2. Your legit email for contact (I will not give these out to anyone!)
    3. Your location (for example: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada)

    IMPORTANT: You must email me to be included in this project! First come first served rules apply. I will be updating the micro site with the list of participants as they come in.
    That is it.

    Thanks a bunch for your time and I look forward to hearing from you all in the next few days!

    Cheers...

    Scott.
