The next challenge starts on Monday August 31, 2015

Our next Munich Artists 30 day Challenge Begins on August 31, 2015 and will combine photography and illustration.  There are no limitations on the way you use the photographs I’m providing you.  There are backup photographs just in case the assigned photograph does not inspire you.  You can use any of the extra photographs once each during the 30 day Challenge.

The theme for the day is the composition of the photograph.  For A few options include:

Combining different photographs digitally – Take your own photograph and the photograph that I am providing you and photoshop them or, use a program on your smart phone to layer the photos like the image below:

Combining different photographs collage – Print out the photograph and then use the photograph within your photo composition like this:

Combining photography and illustration –  You can either download and draw directly on the photograph that I’ve provided you or create an illustration that combines elements of the photograph and then photograph it.  Examples of this type of artwork include:

Ben Heine

Artist Ben Heine

and Neal Murren

 Because of the flexibility of the challenge, artists can make art that takes minutes or hours depending on their schedule over the upcoming 30 days.  I will try to make a simple piece and a more complicated piece each day.

The Instructions above will be on the challenge page starting on Monday August 24, 2015.   I am providing you with the photographs a week in advance so you can prepare yourself for the challenge.  Please do not post any images before the challenge day.  I want to give your work my full attention and I can’t do that if it shows up out of order.

If you decide to participate in this challenge, your work will be shared on Facebook and Instagram and possibly printed in the Challenge book.  I will not use it for any other purpose without your permission. If you do not want your work used, I would ask you to specifically state that when you post the image in our closed Facebook group or when you email it to me (why would you email me a photo if I can’t use it?  That would be just silly. Don’t email me things I can’t use.)

All the photographs provided for this challenge are in the creative commons so you can do whatever you want with them.  I do have one photograph that is by a German photographer so you will need to reference her name in your credits.  I will use her piece in the extra photos. There are no other copyright restrictions on your final artwork except for your own personal copyright for the finished artwork.

Please remember this is to inspire and challenge you.  I do not accept archival work as a submission but you can use archival photographs for your digital collaging.  You must use the daily photograph or one of the Extras every day of the 30 day photo and illustration challenge.

I look forward to seeing your work!
