Well, after Art's blessings and support from a couple of mods, I will be taking up the reins of the Blind Print Exchange. So, without any further ado . . .
IT'S TIME FOR BLIND PRINT EXCHANGE -ROUND 9.
We will keep things pretty much as they were with Art last year. Here is a link to a good explanation about the Blind Print Exchange.
Here's the basic rundown. Septenber 2009 is the signup period. October and November 2009 are for printing and mailing your print to your recipient. December is the rest month and we will start round 10 in Jan 10.
Anyone who would like to participate in the BPE must PM me with your name and mailing address during the month of September. Deadline for signup is 30 September 2009 at 4:00 am GMT (midnight US east coast). You can comment here. In fact, conversation here is encouraged.
October and November are set aside for printing and mailing prints. Of course, you eager beavers can print in September and you late bloomers can ship in December. These are basic guidelines and the unforeseen can always occur. We understand this.
On 1 October I will assign everyone a participant to which they will send their print. Everyone sends one print and receives one in return. And you won't know where your print is coming from either. Hence, BLIND. Your print should be the VERY BEST print that you personally can make. I personally want to discourage prints that are not the personal work of the participant. I would like all work to be exchanged to be personal work, not sent out. Size, content, B&W - Colour, matted or no, all of this is up to you.
If for some reason you cannot not meet your commitment PM me ASAP. If you receive a print and cannot fulfill your commitment simply resend it to your own recipient and PM me to the fact.
So, commence to PMing and signing up. I hope to have a huge turnout.
