Q: "Can I submit my painting or do you only accept digital works?"
A: Of course you may! If you are a traditional painter, you can submit your painting, likewise, if you are a digital painter, you can submit that work as well! Painting submissions just attach a clear photo of your work (preferably in good lighting as this is our only basis for initial judging!) and another picture of you holding your painting so we can validate your ownership. For digital artworks, submit a high resolution pdf of jpg file of your work. Philippinalia may ask for proofing (such as a screenshot of the layers of your work if necessary). *Remember, limit one entry per person per month.

In addition, here are some entry suggestions:
>t-shirt with original design
>decorative jewelry, hat, or shoe boxes (tip: you can embellish the box with various materials, have the box made with wood, tin, paper, etc. and even just decoupage it with your unique design!)
>guitar sling
>picture frame
>paper weight
>lamp
so much more!

If you're not sure, ask us!
Good luck and have fun creating!
If you love what you do, it'll show through your work!

Art is: starting with a familiar shape, like molding a pot from clay - then planting your mother's shoes, your brother's legos, your dad's car keys and your neighbor's cat. Art is layers and layers of everything and anything that resonates with you as a person that the artist in you tampers with.

Artist Kelsey Brookes shows how:

TED Blog | Are all new things a mash-up of what came before? A Q&A with Kirby Ferguson

There's a fine line between plagiarism and copying. Kirby Ferguson's TEDTalk on this is worth reading.

"...copying, then transforming and combining. I think that is creativity. Whether something is good or bad or revolutionary or derivative is about how much work you put into it, how long you’ve been doing it, how sophisticated the combinations are, how inspired the combinations are." - Kirby Ferguson 'Everything Is A Remix'

In today's TEDTalk, director Kirby Ferguson outlines a bold vision of creativity -- that it's not about dreaming up a new song, a new piece of art or a new form of technology in a vacuum, but instead about remixing what has come before.

Thoroughly enjoyed the exhibit of Gustav Klimt's sketches and drawings at the Getty today. Never thought I'd see them with my own eyes! Wish I could've taken more pictures to share with you all but cameras are strictly prohibited inside the gallery.
