Call for Artists: COTA Paratransit Facility Mural

Just received this call for artists. I haven't done murals, but thought I'd pass it along. From their web site:

Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) envisions a floor to ceiling mural on two walls of the Mobility Assessment Facility that portrays a downtown Columbus scene. This mural will aid in creating an environment in this facility that closely simulates what an applicant will experience in a real world environment.

The proposed work of art imagery may include or be evocative of the following:

*Columbus city-scapes
*Imagery should contain diverse populations including persons with disabilities
*Historical references to mass transit
*COTA logo

Details are on their web site:  

Deadline is August 30.

Sketchbook Project

The Sketchbook Project: 2011

It's that time again. I've received my sketchbook for the next project, and it's time to get started. My theme this year is "Facing Forward", and I chose a book with a lovely red cover. It should be an interesting theme to explore. 

So far, 10,000 people - yes that's right - are participating. Imagine that: 10,000 sketchbooks touring the country.

The books will go to Brooklyn, Atlanta, Chicago, Austin, Seattle, San Francisco, and Portland, Maine. I'm excited about Austin - the books will be at the SXSW festival on March 12, my birthday!

There's still time to sign up and some fantastic themes still left. Check it out:

And here's a link to my entry for the last sketchbook project:
