ONLY ONE WEEK LEFT!

by evilnymphstuff

This is it. We are really doing this. In one week, on the 1st February 2016, we will be launching our artistic project, ‘The Mad Artist’!

For those of you who don’t know what this is all about, please read this brief statement explaining all of it HERE, and if you are more curious about my thought processes about it, click HERE.

But it’s basically a project that will help undervalued artists to showcase their beautiful artworks all on a growing Facebook page – a social media platform for creative minds! I pitched the idea onto this blog first, then to my friends and so far, I was encouraged, so here we are!

Hehe, this is actually the profile picture of ‘The Mad Artist’ Deviantart group, which I created and used to invite artists all over the world to participate in the project. Here’s the group name: TMA-NewTalents, in case any one of you would like to check out the various submitted artworks there. The response was great and positive :)

To those of you who have considered joining the project too, this is a reminder for you to submit your art now! Well, actually you can submit at any time, even after the launching date, because we’ll always need your art to showcase to a fresh audience that there are rare talents out there!

If you want to submit:

(i) Either through the Deviantart group that I linked above,

(ii) Or by sending me an email at daphyin.art@gmail.com

Do watermark your work and link me your Facebook page preferably (if you don’t have one then the link of your blog or any other platform you use), as all credits go to the artist!

You can also write a custom caption, to be sent along with the art.

So what are you waiting for? Join ‘The Mad Artist’ project!

Anyway.

I’m just so excited.

Will update you guys about the project in a week.

Until then,

The Mad Artist

by evilnymphstuff

‘The Mad Artist’ is a project that aims to solve a common inconvenience in the career of an independent artist, a.k.a. the second half of the creative job: publicizing one’s talents and being up-to-date with other artists.

We aim to offer a platform, free of charge, where all arts (both traditional and digital visual arts, crafts, music, photography, writing…) can be showcased to a worldwide audience, with the artist’s name and page/website clearly featured.

Our mission is to minimize the global underestimation of art and showcase how art does contribute to the beauty of the world, of one’s life. In simpler words: art is worth it. In addition, it is always a pleasure to fill someone’s social media feed with beautiful and meaningful things.

Being a start-up project, we will be starting with a Facebook page, and this is because Facebook is conveniently multi-media-friendly in terms of posting, while having one of the biggest active audience in the internet world. As some people say, ‘everyone has Facebook’ now. We might eventually expand to a website and other social networks in the future, depending on the response rate.

If you want to contribute your art to the project, simply send us your best work of art, with or without a caption of your preference, unless your art is writing itself, by email for evaluation and we will get back to you as soon as we can. If your art is accepted, then just sit back and relax, and we will do our best to put your work out there for everyone to see.

Email: daphyin.art@gmail.com

Tentative Launch Date: 1st February 2016 (?)

Partner in art: Dwij Rogbeer

Yep, it’s official. The project is on!

Oh by the way, we are also recruiting talents from Deviantart. Join our group here: TMA-NewTalents

I NEED YOUR OPINION: ‘The Mad Artist’ Project

by evilnymphstuff

I hate myself for saying this, but when I feel like chilling in the morning, doing nothing, I open my Facebook and scroll down my news feed. The nice thing about my news feed is that, since a news feed depends on the previous posts you liked and such, I keep seeing either inspiring/writing quotes or beautiful artworks. I’m especially a fan of Word Porn and berlin-artparasites.

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, despite my recent irregularity, you know that I’m also as much of a writer as a reader, and also that I’m as much of a visual artist (especially seen on my instagram) as a viewer and appreciator of art.

So, I was doing my usual online routine when an idea occurred to me. And ‘The Mad Artist’ Project was born.

What is that ‘crazy’ project?

Nothing has been done yet, because I would like some opinions from a little of everywhere before I do begin it; but in theory, ‘The Mad Artist’ is going to be a start-up Facebook platform for starting or established artists (digital, traditional, photographers, you name it) to get to promote their best art on a weekly/monthly basis. If I do get to go along with the project, I will start it as a Facebook page first, then expand to a website and Instagram and more maybe.

Why this project?

You see, I am sometimes an artist too, but often, my student life gets in the way and I just stop. Moreover, every time I feel like making my brand, I tend to falter and shift to another style, thus I’m way too inconsistent in art to have a signature style and build my own ’empire’. However, I’m consistently looking out for artsy things, especially during my Facebook time, since I do have creative friends and I do like a lot of such pages, and I really appreciate art, and sometimes I just wish I could help those consistent and dedicated artists in a way.

Besides, I think that being an independent artist (my targeted audience for the project for the time being) requires not only to make art but also to promote it… and the project is going to take care of that second job, at least, I hope it’s going to give more exposure and encourage mingles among the different artists I know.

It will basically be a platform for uniting my favourite arts and at the same time for more exposure for busy creative artists.

If you are confused, here’s a prototype of how a post on the page would look like: a photo/the art and a caption by me (because I do love to write and I did enjoy doing the Picture it & Write challenges long before on this blog, which has the same concept):

“”She might as well have been a porcelain doll. She was played with, but she could not play with.”

Weekly Photo Challenge | Work Of Art

by evilnymphstuff

my work of art

I’m taking this week’s challenge, Work of Art, as an opportunity to finally show you my first original painting on canvas, which I think I’m calling Homothea’s End. It was painted with acrylics :)

By the way if you have missed my last post, Narcissism & Manipulation, go and read it! It’s the first of a series in which I’m going to post every week on psychological profiles, based on my personal observations of the world. :D

Stay tuned.

The Story Of My Very First Art Exhibition

by evilnymphstuff

Saturday 14th September 2013.

I was really nervous. Especially that they would not only be exhibiting my painting, but also my portfolio and the idea of so many people going through my drawings just freaked me out. I’m very sensible about my art and although I should think about that, I can’t help but wonder whether people like what they see or not.

At the CCEF, there are two categories of art courses: one is the adult one, from 14 years old and up, like the one I got myself into, and the second is for the smaller ones, the children one.

On the day of the exhibition, the works of the younger ones were hung on the wall outside in the common corridor while ours were waiting for us in the exhibition room.

The cocktail party wouldn’t begin before 16.30 but together with my parents I arrived at 16.20. I had more than enough time to admire the children’s drawings, all so filled with talent :) The children’s group was already present and waiting as well, By 16.30 my friends came and soon the director of the Centre let us in the exhibition room. My friends and I waited a little, allowing the children to go first and finally went in…

(I tried the panorama option, so as to get the whole room all together)

And there they were, all of our works, paintings, on the walls, shining in artificial light.

Without wasting a single moment, parents and friends all urged us, the masters of our masterpieces to pose next to our work so that they would capture this moment with their cameras ;) That moment was actually so funny because we were just… lost in all this jungle of people staring at our work, taking photos… taking space as well. And the room wasn’t that big. But we finally made it to get to the front:

Nude Art Is Beautiful

by evilnymphstuff

WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS MATURE CONTENT.

I’ve grown a certain addiction to nude art since I finished my portfolio during the week, and nude art being one of the sections I had to put in and a chapter we studied in our art course.

Nude art is not vulgar or offensive or downgrading. It’s art. So it’s beautiful :)

And thus here’s my nude art collection:

It’s the very first that we drew in class itself with basic graphite pencils.

The ‘I’M GUILTY’ Episode!

by evilnymphstuff

One more week and my exams will finally be over. ONE WEEK! Well, they end on Thursday. Anyway, I wasn’t supposed to do anything like blogging or YouTubing… but I couldn’t help it. I was much active on Twitter especially.

And I bought art stuff!

Yes, I’m definitely guilty!

Then, yesterday I did the thing that a student in exams period should put last in their to-do list and that is… I did a video. Well I filmed one with the help of my little sister, and now it’s up on YouTube!

I guess it would be inhuman to be able to remain buried in school books 24/24.

So here’s the video:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern

by evilnymphstuff

When I first saw this week’s theme, pattern, it reminded me of my art classes at school a few years back. We had to draw a specific pattern all over an A3 size paper like the wrapping paper style… I didn’t really like it at that time.

Anyway, here’s my take for the challenge, a pattern that appeals much to me:

Art Is Changing My Life

by evilnymphstuff

Some of you might remember that when I started this blog, I said that I had a new hobby every year.

Only writing remains constant throughout my life’s journey, since it’s more than a hobby, it’s a passion, well, it hasn’t always been constant but it always came back – I always came back to it.

French fanfiction in 2008, vidding in 2010, makeup and blogging in 2011, novelist-huge-breakthrough-plans in 2012… For some I… well I didn’t give up but I kind of was out of time to do all so I had to eliminate, while for others, like blogging especially, remained and will remain in my life I believe.

And in 2013…

Art.

Of course, everything I stated above is art, but what I mean is that this year I’m embracing the very basic stereotype form of art, which is the visual one, painting and drawing. The one art I drowned in when I could not even read and write, which made me use up all the paint pots and try out all the cheap painting brushes we had in our family’s shop, and which made me wonder about beautiful sunsets painted on canvas…

Weekly Photo Challenge: A Day In The Life Of An Artist!

by evilnymphstuff

I know I usually do weekly photo challenges on Wednesdays, but a lot happened this weekend, and I’ve also being very active on Instagram. And this week’s photo challenge is ‘A Day in My Life‘!

I’m mainly going to concentrate on how I spent my Sunday, although you still deserve some explanations over Saturday and Monday:

On Saturday, we, Mauritians, have been victims of a never-seen-and-witnessed torrential rain situation. Unexpected floods, unpredicted (or compelled to silence) by the media, despite all the technologies we possess, which caused deaths and panic… My mother and I were far from our home, in a shopping mall, and we were so taken aback when we went out and saw that water was all over the pavements and roads… it came up to our ankles!

And I had to buy art supplies.

Anyway, I’m still alive! If you want to know more about this, my best friend just wrote a blog post about it here: Mauritius These Days…

So when I woke up on Sunday, it didn’t feel like Easter. Nevertheless, I ate chocolate bunnies! :) Thus, here’s the first photo for the Daily post challenge:

Lindt!!! ♥ Yumyumyum…
