My fans and collectors seem to like it when I do special events where I do a series of artworks and then auction them here on my blog. I have done “Paint-a-thons” and “Draw-a-thons” before, and I have done ‘Drawing-a-Day” auctions. I decided it was time to mash it up a bit and do something a little bit different.
This time, I am going to do a Create-a-thon Mashup!
What is a Create-a-thon Mashup you ask? Well, according to Dictionary.com, a mashup is: “a creative combination or mixing of content from different sources.” With that in mind, I am going to create a variety of artworks in different media, drawing on different sources, for a 12-hr time period.
In addition to the artworks created in the Create-a-thon, I will “mash up” an auction with the artworks created in the Create-a-thon, add in some already existing artworks, and make one big art event!
Here is how it will work:
- I will create as many artworks as I can (paintings, drawings, collages, etc.) between 10 AM to 10 PM (EST) on Sunday, June 10, 2012. All of the artworks plus some already existing works will be posted for auction here on my website the following day (Monday, June 11, 2012). Bidding will conclude Wednesday, June 13, 2011 at 10 pm ET.
- I will be posting photos of the works in progress throughout the Create-a-thon to Twitter and to Facebook. Follow the hashtag #bztatptg on Twitter for the latest.
- I will donate 15% of all the proceeds to the Ohio Arts and Crafts Guild, an organization providing supports to artists throughout the state of Ohio.
- Winning bidders will need to allow 4 weeks for shipping.
The Create-a-thon is a great way to find some affordable bargains on original artwork!
I hope you will join me for this special event. I promise to have some new and fresh images that have not been seen before as well as some favorite themes.
Have suggestions for what you’d like me to create? Leave them in the comments below. (It would be nice if you plan to bid on works that you suggest. )
