|Yeah, mostly IZ fanart as well as unnamed anime drawings and comics. Stories, lyrics, and poetry fill some pages, too. Some things are even horrific!|
As we all know, being an artist can be difficult. Some categories of art receive more attention than others; some shows or fandoms receive more attention than others (like MLP and Naruto gain way more attention than My Little Monster). This makes it extremely difficult to be recognized in the art world when so many people are both drawing and paying attention to only a certain category. So, the lesser known or done categories get ignored and pushed aside.
As some of you guys may know, I run a group called #Pinup-Paradise, which focuses solely on, of course, pinups.
I've decided recently that I'm going to help promote artists (mainly the artists that are part of my group, whoever sees my group or the journal) by making a new journal each month that features a group of artists and some of their artwork. Each month, there is a new theme (ex: this month's is "Girls with Guns"), so that it's not just features of random artists each month. The themes are meant to help capture the artists' specific/target audiences and offer them more of the spotlight, but it can also draw in the unsuspecting person that may just randomly decide to search it or come across it. Different artists have different specialties, such as black and white photography, cosplay, sketching, painting, etc.
So, hopefully the themes and new journals that show two or three deviations of that month's chosen theme help those artists to gain spotlight.
Basically, I ask you guys to vote for what theme you'd like (or I may just choose one randomly, depends on the feedback), and once a theme is chosen, I announce the theme, and then anyone and everyone is allowed to comment if they'd like to be featured.
So if you like to do pinups and would like a bit more attention as an artist, please feel free to come over and ask to be featured Again, keep in mind, the theme changes only every MONTH. So you can either choose to submit your artwork to the group itself, ask to be featured in the current theme, or wait and vote on the next theme or what you'd like.
