"Where do you find these interesting assignments?"  I get asked that A LOT and the truth is it is a lot of work, but I love to research so it more like treasure hunting for me!  

My plan is to update Action Steps every Monday with new calls and reminders of impending deadlines!  If you get a tiny spark of inspiration - run with it! 

Do something that scares you!


Two Good SHOWS and a new site to check out

CRITTERS Exhibition Call for Art    

   DEADLINE   09/30/2018


ArtlessBastard is calling for 2D & 3D works of art, in all mediums – except performance art or film – for their Nov/Dec 2018 ‘CRITTERS’ Show.

If your art features ANY critter, real or imagined, then it’s a good fit for this exhibition. And whether the animal inspiration is obvious or subtle, they want to see it! If there’s a beak, paw, fur, tentacles (or anything in-between) they’re leaving the interpretation of theme up to their artists and can’t wait to see what you come up with.

If bugs are your thing, bring it on! If creatures of the sea mystify you, bring it on! If made-up monsters make you happy, bring it on!

If dressing models up like animals trips your trigger, bring it on! They’ve instructed their guest jurors that their core audience enjoys both traditional & contemporary works – so this show will be a great mix of style, medium, size and subject.
