NEW 2012 Swap challenge - Please Join

Since nobody is volunteering to do this and Kristen who volunteered earlier is not active, I am volunteering to do the 2012 swap unless somebody else is ready to do this.

Lesley has written excellent rules for the last swap and I am too lazy to think of rules. So let us follow the same rules as last year. Here are the rules from last year with slight modifications for dates etc.

###########################################

What I propose now is a swap, so that who you send to will be the person who sends their own art to you. However, there's a twist which should make this not only challenging but also rewarding.

i) We sign up to the challenge in this thread so I can keep track

ii) As with the last one you all send me your addresses in a private message (pm). If you don't know how to access my private message thingy, click on my name next to this post and you will see it in the dropdown box.

iii) You stipulate what your favourite genre/s is/are in this thread and also with me when you send me your address.

iv) I draw random pairs but I keep drawing until those pairs all have different favourite genres (for example I wouldn't pair myself with another animal lover) . [Addition]I will also try to keep the pairing in the same country to keep the mailing cost reasonable.

v) You do a 5"x7" or an 8"x10" board (small to keep mail costs down like last time) in the subject or genre of your paired partner. For example if Lesley ended up paired with Rick Golden he could do a portrait or an animal and Lesley would do a ship or some architecture. (If there are too many people who choose animals, we may have to further break that down into 'favourite animals' - in fact, please do that anyway)

It's designed to be something that puts us a little out of our comfort zone but also guarantees your partner (the recipient of your art) will receive something that is dear to their heart.

So the recipient will know who is doing a piece for them but they won't know what that piece is until it comes through the mail.

vi) You can tell me if there is something you do not wish to do (I know of at least one person who won't want to do certain subjects for valid religious reasons, and others may not want to do nudes etc etc) and that way I won't pair you with people who have those genres as their favourites.

vii) When you send me your address and genre/subject preference, also send me the names of people who you may have art from (like me for instance, I have seven people on here that I have art from) so I can pair you up with someone new.

viii) Again, like last time, I will be the only one to know all the addresses so for your own piece of mind and security, I only share the partner's addresses.

ix) The additional challenge component will be we all get to guess who did what. You should get at least two right as this will be done once everyone receives their piece and I know it's all over. At that point I will post all the pictures listed as a, b, c etc, and I will post all the names of the artists in a list below the images. You will then, if you wish to be involved in this portion, need to send me your guesses in a format of Patrick Hedges = A, Diana Lee = F etc etc.

Signup with genre and addresses pm'd to me must be completed by 15th August 2012

I will then have you paired up by 25th August 2012. You will receive a pm with your recipient's address and the genre subject matter you must tackle.

Finished items must be scanned and image sent to me by pm by 25th October 2012. That gives you two months to do it.

Items may be posted to your recipient as soon as you are completed.

Recipients let me know by pm as soon as you receive your art.

Do not under any circumstances reveal who sent you your piece, no matter how good it is or how excited you might be. That will be done after I have all the guesses in. I will reiterate this again later.

Good for you Shone for taking this on board. Just wanted to mention that i copied the text from patricks page so none of it was my doing. Just wanted to clear that up.

I am afraid i can't take part this year due to so many other commitments but i hope others have time to embrace it. It was a lot of fun to watch last time even though i didn't participate.

Shone, could you pair people but not tell them who their partner is? When the person sends you a scan of what they have done, then you give them the address of their partner and reveal who they did the scratch for? I think it would be more fun not know who you are scratchin' for. I hope you are joining in too.

Thanks for joining everyone! We have 9 so far including myself.

And I will make the change in the rules that Sue asked for. You will be given only the genre and not the persons name until the challenge is over. We can actually have one more challenge to guess who is receiving what.
