EBSQ Friday Five

Perch by Shawn Marie Hardy

1. Art Seen: At first glance on the EBSQ homepage, I would not have guessed this imaginative piece was collage. Perch by Shawn Marie Hardy thought-provoking, seamless and beautiful. Check it out!

2. Learning Resources: Tip #125 – Unusual (Found) Drawing Tools – I want to make an Ent Pen!!

3. In the News: Art or porn? Discovery Green statues raise eyebrows, discussion – Just my opinion here, but nudity does not always equal porn.

4. Exhibits: Calling all EBSQ Artists – Do you create fan art? Or maybe you’ve been tempted to portray your favorite Doctor or Superhero? Don’t miss our Celebrating Fan Art Exhibit!

5. Self-Promotion: Artists learn promotion is selling yourself, not selling out

Battle For The Net

Battle for the Net

If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10thEveryone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown Get creative! Don’t let us tell you what to do. See you on the net September 10th!
