This week, our Challenge has been inspired by a post on The Fox Is Black, a blog I recently subscribed to. The blog is “an art and design website that seeks to discover and share the most interesting, beautiful and inspiring parts of contemporary life.” Well worth checking out—but let’s cut to the chase: they’re having an art contest where the winner gets a $100 gift certificate from Amazon!!!
But there are zillions of contests out on the interwebs; this one is actually really cool AND fits in nicely with the mission of Marvin Artists: to inspire you to create different types of art. The contest is part of The Fox Is Black’s regular feature “Re-covered Books”, where they invite people to come up with their own unique interpretation of a particular book’s cover. For this contest, your task is to create a new cover for Homer’s Odyssey. Use whatever media you wish, and feel free to make a back cover for extra credit. And don’t forget: $100!!!
You can find full information for the Recovered contest here. We hope to see your Marvin Artists submission before next Wednesday, but the actual deadline for the contest proper is April 15.
Now I just need to read The Odyssey…
