You are invited to participate in an exquisite corpse style animal block printing project. Brian Lane of Print Zero Studios is collaborating with artists Peter Foucault and Chris Treggiari for a series of printing events at the Getty Museum in LA this July and August. The project is responding to their current exhibition “Book of Beasts: The Bestiary in the Medieval World”. We are asking you to carve an animal onto a SOFT CUT block, which we will then turn into part of the exquisite corpse printing in which people can combine different heads, bodies, tails, wings, etc to create an all new beast. Your animal blocks will be hand printed onto a screen printed poster that people can take home with them. DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING BLOCKS IS JULY 27th GUIDELINES ——————— ONLY USE SOFT CUT, SOFT KUT, E-Z CUT (NO Lino or wood) We have blocks at the League ready for you! Block orientation is up to you but Horizontal / Landscape works best for this. Animals are to be no larger than 4″ x 6″, can be smaller, but may not exceed this size. Animals should be seen from the side profile. Entire body. Animal HEAD should be FACING TOWARDS RIGHT SIDE on the block —-> Connecting points betweens animals sections will be 3/4″ wide (not smaller or large) Head/Neck, Butt/Tail, Wings, etc…. please indicate where you want us to cut. 3/4″ exactly will allow the animal parts to connect seamlessly! Design/draw/carve a complete animal (not the hybrid/frankenstein version) Any extra space on your block can be filled with an extra tail, horn, wing, head part… 3/4″ ! You can do an animal, insect, current or extinct or exotic, or interpret an animal as a pattern, skeleton, robotic, etc. We would love a diverse range of animals You can do more than one animal on a block. You can also do additional animal parts. Pick up your block at Print Zero or the Seattle Artist League, or use your own (and Brian can replace it from his stock when you drop off at Print Zero.) Out of town participants, you will need to supply your own block(s) You are designing only the animal. No backgrounds or landscaping. Please do not cut down your block, nor cut your animal into segments. Print Zero will handle that while prepping for the event. Just carve the animal. Print Zero will be keeping these blocks, however artists will be credited for their designs, and we will most likely be asked to print a complete version of the project for the Getty Archives (as we did w/ 100 mask blocks last time) We will post to social media and always try to tag the artist, link to websites etc. Brian Lane hopes to host a couple events in Seattle (possibly at the League!) w/ all the blocks so you can have a chance to print your own blocks and do the exquisite corpse. Please return blocks to Brian Lane / Print Zero (address down below) and include the following: Your Name, Type of Animal/Creature, Email, Instagram. Website We have a beautifully drawn 11 x 17 poster that these will be printed onto. You may come down and visit us at the Getty on the event dates as well and participate in printing your own poster.

30SAL Challenge: Crumpled, Rumpled, or Neat
Last Tuesday for our observational drawing I posted a challenge to draw your unmade beds. In return you posted exceptionally beautiful drawings, proof that lack of housekeeping makes for good art. Your drawings were so personal and beautifully rendered that decided to propose a similar measure of housekeeping for today’s challenge: laundry. Artist’s choice materials. …
