So you’ve heard about Roaming Art and the traveling sketchbooks, you’ve seen pictures, checked out the site and have seen us on facebook, flickr and deviant art. Now you’re wondering “How can I get involved, what do I need to do to participate?”. While Dan and I don’t control who gets a book after it’s left our hands, we can help people that have gotten a book figure out who to pass it to.
In this post I’d like to give some suggestions on what people can do to increase their chance of getting a book. Starting with just showing your interest in the project.
Make Your Presence Known
The first thing to do is just make it known that you’d like to add your art to a book! The best way to do this is to comment here on the site (this post is a good place to start) and watch the site for updates. If we see someone actively taking interest in the project we’ll turn to them when the time comes to move a book, or start a new one.
Tell Your Friends
Another way to get involved with the project is to share the idea. Roaming Art is already about sharing ideas and promoting a sense of unity within an art project with artists of all styles and skills. So tell your friends, link to us in your blog and get the word out. Be sure to send us a link if you ever blog or link to us, we’ll try to do something nice for you in return!
Join Us Around the Web
If you have an account on facebook or flickr, you can make your presence known there aswell. You can join our facebook group or our flickr group, be sure to make some noise there too with some comments and discussion. Right now on faebook we’re asking people for theme ideas for new books.
By showing us your interested and helping spread the idea we’ll be able to grow the project and we’ll do our best to get a book to as many people that we can!
