Announcing the launch of Inbox (12), a new publication where you receive 12 postcards drawn and written by 12 illustrators about their favourite city spots.
Inbox (12) is a sample of the work of amazing illustrators from major cities all around the world as well as a guide to the special spots that a friend who knows the place would recommend to you… and they’re not always in the usual travel guides!.
Inbox (12) is a fanzine for those who enjoy having a beautiful object in their hands.

Nate and Salli the great people behind the blog “They Draw and Cook” are having fun holiday contest in conjunction with the Food Network! Check out this link for the details.
Hi! I just wanted to make you aware of a fun little contest going on over at Escape from Illustration Island. The rules are easy: all you have to do is participate in Illustration Friday topics for the whole month of February (so 4 total). Post your illos here at IF like you normally do, but also add your link in the comments on this post. If you do all 4 weeks, you’ll be eligible to win Drew Stuzan’s tutorial DVD called Conceiving and Creating the Hellboy Movie Poster Art.
Find out more about the contest here. (This should be super easy for those doing IF every week anyway!)
Hello folks! We’re closing in on the end of the year, and are smack dab in the middle of the winter holiday season. To celebrate, Utopian.net would like to offer 5 FREE Pomfolio accounts to Illustration Friday participants!
Pomfolio is a new blog service tailored to the needs of artists and creators, using WordPress MU software. We offer easy to customize themes (also formatted for mobile browsers) and plugins to complement the social networking features we’ve all come to rely on (like easy Facebook, Twitter and Flickr connections).
To play, simply leave a comment below. We’ll randomly choose one winner today*, and two winners for the next two weeks until we’ve given them all away!
*YAY, we’ve done the drawing using Random.org’s random number generator and winner is…Ira, from Sketch for the Day!
Congratulations Ira! I’ll be contacting you with an invite code at the email address you provided in your comment. We’ll have our next giveaway for TWO more Pomfolio accounts next Friday!
Mail Me Art is a British-based project, run by Darren Di Lieto, the founder and co-editor of the illustration news portal the Little Chimp Society. Over the course of a year, the first Mail Me Art project brought together a vast collection of artistic work sent in the form of mail by both professional and amateur artists of all ages from across the world. A wide variety of media were used in an equally wide variety of styles and the work arrived on everything from postcards and envelopes to boxes and pieces of wood.
Mail Me Art 2 is now up and running — and ready for submissions! It is hoped that this will be as successful as the first project – if not more so!
Mail Me Art 2 will run for around 6-8 months (deadline for the project is April 2010), with a signed copy of the book plus an art-related prize given away each month to the artist of our favourite submission. They are planning to propose a follow up book, possibly called Mail Me More Art, and if they have half as many submissions as the first Mail Me Art project did they will run another exhibition.
The Alternative Pick invites photographers, illustrators, designers and interactive designers to enter one of the most popular award shows in the industry.
The judges will choose a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner and 3 Honorable Mentions in each category.
In addition to the design, illustration, new media and photography categories, this year they have added the “iPhone Fun Image” category. Upload your best iPhone image at no charge. Judging will be made by the “Popular Vote”. So be sure to get your family, friends and colleagues to vote!
This year they have some awesome stuff to hand out to the winners including Wacom Intuos4 Tablets, Nikon Coolpix Cameras, Moo Card Packages, SmugMug Pro Accounts, Blick Art Supplies Gift Cards and much more.
“If there weren’t any pesky practical limitations, what world-changing device would you invent?”
The two companies are holding a contest for viewers to submit their own passionate and innovative ideas to help the planet at www.good.is/bigideas. For the submission, GOOD and Babelgum are asking viewers to answer one question: If there weren’t any pesky practical limitations, what world-changing device would you invent?
The two will then choose the most creative submission to feature in the final episode of the new weekly series Big Ideas, also on the site. The winner will also be featured on GOOD’s website, in GOOD Magazine’s Fall 2009 issue, and will curate Babelgum’s Our Earth channel (www.babelgum.com/channel/ourearth) in October. (Super fun!)
Check out the video to get inspired and submit your ideas! Submissions are due August 26.
