The Starving Artist Project

You may remember a little project I did back in 2008 called The Sketchbook Project through the Arthouse Coop, an amazing gallery that organizes really interesting nationwide art projects. That little sketchbook that I illustrated under the Arthouse’s given theme “Saving the World,” lead to my 11+ “Saving the World” drawings that have become a cornerstone in my shop, and really the foundation of the art I do now.

Well, I recently found out about another project through the Arthouse Coop called “The Starving Artist Project.” As you may know, I am currently trying to discover a way to support myself through art, so as you can imagine, the title of this project certainly piqued my interest.

If you check out the project details, you will find that this is one cool deal! You make a piece of art that somehow reflects yourself and your work, send it in by April 5, get it displayed in a show and included in a book about the project, and have the chance at winning a $2,000 grant, no strings attached! The $25 entry fee funds the grant, which from my experience is a pretty sweet deal. I mean, you automatically get put in a show and a book!

The sign up deadline is February 1, so get your little creative self over there and sign up! What have you got to lose? Now I just have to figure out what to make—something that will knock their socks off!

    Good luck, and may the pen be with you. (If you want, I can send you some tofu to tide you over!)

    Thanks for sharing! I’m in love with Art House’s website – so many resources. I signed up too… maybe I’ll see you in Brooklyn?
