“It Is A Pleasure To Meet You”
colors: Turquoise and Black.
size: 5.5in x 7in
due: Try to have these in by January 22, 2010.
Here are some things to keep in mind:
– The artwork needs to be drawn.
– You must include the words of the theme.
– Scan your work in at 300dpi or higher. Make sure the file you send me is at least 300dpi.
– This will be screen printed, so if you know about the process, you can send me the artwork split into two solid black layers – what you want turquoise and what you want black. At the very least, try to send me a file where the turquoise is on one layer and the black on another.
If you still can’t or don’t want to do that, no big deal, I will just split it up when i get it.
This is an OPEN CALL for submissions. I want everyone to doodle something and send it in, but understand that not everyone that sends something in will make it into the final print version.
ONLY 16 artists make it in. That is, until I start selling enough of these to get a bigger budget.
If your artwork does get selected, you get a free artist proof of the book. (It looks exactly the same, it is just one of the ones printed first).
And you can then make a donation, if you feel so compelled.
So there you go!
Please start submitting right away.

TWO PRINTS BY WILL BRYANT!!!!
These will go fast. Better snatch ’em up.
More important news soon.
Just wanted to pop in and announce a few things.
First of all, for some reason the submissions for the newest theme are a little slow going. I have only recieved 9 submissions so far. While all of these are great, this is not enough submissions to even create the next issue, much less enough for the ideal situation, in which I have more than 16 to choose from. For instance, there were 25 submissions for the “Hugs” theme. The most so far!
Anways, I want to reiterate the fact that I encourage anyone and everyone to submit something, and now everyone has even more time. For fear that I will not receive enough in time, the deadline for the “Remember the Good Times” theme has been extended to the end of August. So please try and have your art in by then.
Also, this means that I may have to renege on my promise of one issue a month. Since I am not getting enough submissions per month to make an issue, I am just moving the release dates to whenever I have enough submissions to make up an issue. Make sense? And hopefully someday soon that will be once a month!
So keep sending me your lovely work all you great people, and keep blogging and telling your friends!
Also, Also, I would like to inform everyone that this website, actually the front, “home”, page will start functioning as a general art blog soon. Not only will this inform you of the current goings on of artists already involved with Test Everything, But also expose you to even more artist out there working their tails off. Our zines can only cover so much! Think of this as a new “e-zine” aspect of Test Everything.
As always, Test Everything is ready to bring any artist’s idea to fruition. Any idea you have involving publishing or printing, let us hear it! We would love to help you out. More specifically Test Everything is looking to publish some screen prints by some awesome artists. If that is you, then shoot us an email with your proposed art and we will let you know if we want to work with you.
