5. It’s time for the 14th Annual EBSQ Ripped Off Show! Here’s a snippet from the exhibit prospectus:

If you haven’t done a Ripped show in the past, here’s how it works: you pair up with a fellow EBSQ Artist, and go through their portfolio and “rip off” their artwork. It can be one piece or a combination, or your interpretation of their work, ideas, medium, and technique. We invite you to check out past years’ exhibits to get an idea of the sort of things you can do. You MUST pair up with someone from EBSQ. Rip-Offs of non-EBSQ art, like redoing the Mona Lisa or ripping off Picasso, are NOT allowable for this show.

So, go ahead and pair up! If you’d like assistance looking for a partner, sign up in the EBSQ Forums or on our Facebook Page. Feel free to contact someone privately and see if they’d like to partner with you. The artist whose work is being ripped doesn’t have to rip off your work in return, but they do need to consent to their work being a springboard for your own.

Four Dogs by Melinda Dalke

1. I love these Four Pups by Melinda Dalke. Too much cuteness in one painting!

2. How Any Artist Can Price Their Art for Sale – Every artist struggles with this in the beginning.

3. Storybird: A New Opportunity for Illustrators - This looks interesting! Kelley McMorris writes, “Storybird users can make books for free by selecting illustrations from the site’s library, then writing accompanying stories.” If the writer purchases their book, the artists get a percentage.
