Supadupa Online Boutique

Supadupa @ Handmade Parade

A few days ago, I received an email containing a link and an invitation to sign up to promote my services. I followed the link– and before I could even see the site style or what others were promoting to get a sense of it, they required my credit card information. I’m not going to do that. That’s old school.

The Supadupa site allows you to try their site before committing to any form of payment. Why would you want to do it any other way?

On Supadupa  you set up your online boutique free, no credit card required. Once you get your shop going, then there are upgrades options for expansion. Supadupa is all about handmade everything!

Perhaps you have art pieces that fit Supadupa, and opening a free boutique on the site will bring you in contact with a new market for your work. Have a look.

Mobile Phone Photos wanted! This Dreamtime Assignment is open for submissions. You may review accepted submissions now.

Here is the assignment open call for submissions:

Almost everybody’s got a mobile phone and almost every mobile phone’s got a camera nowadays allowing you to take pictures using APPs that turn your snapshot into a hot shot. Dream time is looking for mobile for this assignment and when they say mobile, they mean the photo device, the concept, the feeling and the look. With a mobile phone, you’re ready to take pictures at any moment so for the first time they’re accepting both editorial and commercial pictures. Whether you’re using a mobile phone or a regular camera, remember the key word is mobile so keep the mobile style and feeling. Think of what you usually shoot with a mobile phone and regardless of the device used, the instantaneous look is essential. It can be anything mobile, a street scene, a day at the beach with friends, a super concert, a surprise party, an unusual landscape, a celeb making an awkward face, election day facts. What is also required for all submissions are mobile phone applications and filters which turn the common things you shoot with mobiles into uncommon shots fit for wider usage. If you’re a camera person, feel free to use your camera and just apply mobile phone style filters to get a suitable final result. If you’re keen on experimenting with a mobile phone shot for this assignment, check and test your phone settings and capabilities first. A 3 MP minimum resolution applies and Dreamtime will not accept upsampled images. Pay attention to have the phone cameras set for high-resolution and don’t forget that applications work differently from device to device. Best mobile phone-graphers will instantly receive $300 for the first place, $200 for the second place and $100 for the third place.The winners will also get  Dreamstime branded t-shirts. Open for submissions

What is the ” Micro Mecenat ” Arts Funding Platform!?

Micro Mecenat is an online platform in Japanese and English that applies the concept of micro funding to artist posted  projects.

“Mecenat” is a French word taken from Maecenas, a historic character famous for supporting artists and poets in the Roman era. Therefore a Mecenat is a sponsor or patron of the arts.

Rather than do the standard Kickstarter campaign seeking US funders your art project, try Micro Mecenat to connect with Japanese funders.

Hotel des Arts, The Question of Ex-istence Exhibition

The Question of Ex-istence

Exhibit Reception

Questioning Statement

All of the artists featured in this exhibition have answered ‘The Question of Ex-istence’ with their artistic creations. We know this because it is not the label that makes them artists, but that in which they create to represent their existence. The questions we ask are often what unites us as a global community and is part of the fabric in which the human experience is woven. Without the ongoing asking of intelligent questions, we become blanketed in complacency.

The many types of questions that let us grow as real beings,paving the way for the next chapter in our lives are usually, factual, convergent, divergent and evaluative in nature .

Many of the questions in which we encounter are needed to explore abilities and reveal potential to ourselves and others so that we may move forward and endure.

Factual questions are simply straight forward, and are based on facts of awareness, with little processing power they are often answered, with a yes, no, right or wrong.

Convergent questions offer a finite range, of acceptable accuracy with complex analysis, cognition, comprehension and synthesization, make your creative thinking ability strong.

Divergent questions explore alternate perspectives and create variations of correctness, scenarios may be based on logical projection, and the conceptual ability to think long.

Evaluative questions require a high level, of logical cognition and a predefined process, answers let the questioners know, within a comparative framework where they belong.
