Magazine article suggestion.
Hi guys. Thinking ahead, a bit like with the website thread, to something that is not needed right now but worth thinking about, I would like to propose that we jointly write a scratchboard article which we can submit to art magazines around the world.
Publicity would not go astray and it would be good to try to get something into a representative collection of magazines. This would mean that the publicity would be free without the need for an advert up front, and it could captivate people if it was written by more than just me. We could have an article that shows the potential of a society to existing scratchboard artists, and the potential of scratchboard (and all its different styles) to people who want to know more about it as a medium.
I'm thinking a threefold approach.
i) The new society
ii) A collection of images and little bits written by four or five artists (with their differing styles and philosophies) and
iii) A WIP or two
All suggestions, agreements, disagreements, ideas welcome. Magazines may jump at it or they may not. I suspect with the right approach, they will get behind it.
