June 1

...Will be the official beginning of the Nomadic Portfolio project. I will be mailing it off on June 1 and it will start its trip around the globe. Aren't you excited? I am.

We'll post pictures of the book artwork as we go, starting with me on June 1 :)

(We have only 9 artists working on the current book project, so if anyone else wants to join, you still have time. Otherwise, we will be proceeding with only 9 instead of 10.)

Hi everyone. Well we've had quite a delay on getting this project started. Ive been trying to keep in contact with my project co-leader, by she's had a lot of stuff going on and we may be starting without her. Im still excited about this project and hope everyone else is also.

The Nomadic Portfolio is a project coordinated by Collettestreasure and implexus.

We are looking for 8 people who would like to be involved in a long term art project. This will be a collaboration of 10 artists, including ourselves, working together to create one art book. This book will travel from one artist to the other over a period of a year. We are looking for international as well as US artist to participate.

Each artist will do one 2 page spread in the book each time it comes around, which will be 4 times over the course of a year. You will have 7 days to complete your spread, then the book must be sent on to the next person. Each artist will be responsible for paying their own shipping costs, getting the book mailed out on time, and submitting photos of their spread as they finish each time. This blog will have a travel calender and will be documenting the phases and travels of the book.

Our concept for this book is "Life. Emotion. Lost." You will be able to work in what ever medium you chose, and the interpretation of "Life. Emotion. Lost" is up to you.
