This was the third week of bus stop doodles, a lil game I have started whereby on a Thursday at around 8:30am GMT I give the word and those who have liked my page jump in and name a character or creature from the world of comics, fantasy, sci fi or horror. The character can be made up or already exist.
The first three posts have their chosen characters doodled on A5 in biro at a bus stop either on my way into or from work. I then post the winners on my wall and send them the original drawing via snail mail.
Its proving to be quite popular and great fun so if you like what I do and fancy the chance of pickin up an original piece of doodled art pop along, like my page and be around on a Thursd…
I have received some requests to extend the sale of Evolution of Sound limited edition – mainly due to tomorrow (In the uk) being pay day for a number of people. Originally the t shirt design was to be removed from Redbubble after 48 hours but due to these requests I am going to extend the sale of this design by another 24 hours which means it will be removed tomorrow evening at 11pm GMT.
So if you fancy a ‘rockin’ baby ranga on ya chest but thought you’d missed out, here is your chance to grab one here before it’s removed from RB forever!!
I will randomly be selecting 3 names from the first 100 fans my StevenAustinArt Fb fan page receives – each of the 3 winners will win one of my t shirts – the design of which the winners can select. I will make the selection once I reach 100 likes, I will then contact the winners to find out which design they want and to receive postal addresses, size and colour details etc. For your chance to win just like my Fb fan page – easy!!
In case you weren’t aware the NY Comic Con’ challenge has begun taking votes!!
The challenge is a comic book character design challenge and those voted in the top 20 will go into the next stage of the comp’ the winner of which will be selected by the RB crew. The winning design will then sail into the NY comic con on T Shirts, 300 of which will be given away to ‘nice’ people. :)
It’s fair to say that several of the artists involved in the challenge are comic book/art freaks – myself included!! And the prize for this challenge is pretty prestigious as far as comic book freaks are concerned.
This in mind pop along and show some support to those involved by voting for those that you feel deserve a place in the top 20!!
Thought I’d raise a couple of points and ask a couple of questions regarding the comic con challenge and challenges in general – may ruffle a few feathers but hey ho – omelettes and eggs.
Ok just had a browse through the selection of entries for the NY comic con challenge and as with many challenges I have entered previously I notice several works entered that obviously have ‘not’ been designed specifically for the challenge but have been either retitled to fit the criteria – i.e they have a character in them but the design was never solely about the character (despite the fact that this challenge is) or designs have just been added regardless without any reference to the actual character at all.
Also as the challenge rules request ‘New designs on…
Just wanted to let you all know that I am ditching the ‘ausven’ avatar and braving my real name Steven Austin. This decision was made to ensure that I stay in line with the name of my website, which should you be interested is – funnily enough – stevenaustinart.com
See ya’ll around the bubble – without my ausven mask. :)
