Wow, after a wait of almost a month, I've received a package of monsters in the mail. They come from Suzie Garner who is an art teacher at Mesa State College in Grand Junction, Colorado, USA.
Suzie writes, "I gave this as an assignment to my sketchbook students. I gave them the cards and I told my students that I would pay the postage on their submissions if they wanted to participate. They have the option of keeping them too. Most of my students are typical college age around 21 to 23 I think. They tend to be at least 21 in that class since there are some prerequisites to get into the course. So they are juniors and seniors typically. The class itself is called "ARTS 360 Sketchbook"
The first submission is Suzie's own, followed by a selection of works that she sent me as email attachments. These are the cards that her students decided to keep I think, as they were not in the envelope I received today. I will scan the cards that arrived in the post and upload them over the course of the week.

Thanks to Chocolategirl64 who tagged me ~ I have to pass this tag to fellow bloggers who love the same music I do.
1. You have to post a song that makes you happy. 2. You can tag as many people as you want, there is no limit. 3. Say at least one thing about each blog you tag, that will make them smile, something nice about their blog that makes you smile when you read it!
I saw The Death Set at The Railway earlier this year, it was one of the smallest turn-outs I've ever seen at a gig but the band gave it absolutely everything and it was a brilliant night. I defy you not to be singing this for days after you've listened to it a couple of times. Great vid too.
The blogs I'm gonna tag are: Iron Leg - good tunes guaranteed, especially if you dig a bit of 60s garage/ psyche.
David Lee Ingersoll has been posting a step by step guide to how he created the eight part card set submitted here. For those of you who haven't seen it, you really should, here is the link. David actually carried on working on the piece in Photoshop after he had it sent it in so I have asked him if I can share the finished piece with you.
I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, title and anything else you care to add on the back.
I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.
I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.
If you are reading this and would like to get involved, please send a portrait to:
A Patchwork Of Flesh 45 Silversea Drive Westcliff on Sea Essex SS0 9XD United Kingdom
Each card I receive will be uploaded here to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.
