General Holiday Info

We have a winner! Talia K. was the randomly chosen person out of everyone who answered the trivia question correctly in the first Test Everything Email news, and thus has won a free copy of I’ll See You In My Dreams. There were only five entries, so perhaps more of you out there should get with it, and respond to the emails, if you want to win something, or sign up for the email newsletter with the link in the column on the right if you haven’t already.

Alright! Also important is this tidbit: I (Rand Renfrow) will be in Chicago from December 14-21. This means a few things. Most importantly that, if you want to hang out or meet up, just email me at randrenfrow@gmail.com, and tell me when and where. But, also Test Everything won’t be shipping any orders until after Christmas. That is December 25th. Sorry, but I just can’t. Everyone can still order things, they just won’t go out until after December 25th.

I was trying to finish Hugs Will Save Us by Christmas, but that looks like it may not happen. I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated. I have emailed everyone that has been chosen to be in Remember The Good Times, so please, please, check your inboxes and respond to that email if you got it. I need your information! There are still plenty of copies of I’ll See You In My Dreams in the store.

Ok, I believe that is it. I’ll be updated this part of the website often, so keep checking.

NEW THEME!

“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.
Send files to randrenfrow@gmail.com OR testeverythingpress@gmail.com
Send your questions and concern there as well. AND PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS! Test Everything relies on awesome people like you spreading the word!

thanks,
~rand renfrow

Deadline for “Hugs” submissions

Hello all you awesome people. First order of business: a huge thank you to all the people who have submitted for the Hugs Will Save Us issue so far. I believe I have 20 submissions so far, and a few other people who have promised to do one, that just haven’t gotten back to me yet. So start adding those finishing touches friends, because the deadline for submissions to the Hugs issue is WEDNESDAY, JULY 29th. Put it on your calendars, it is coming up! I hope to see a few more entries by that time.

And another awesome thing: Don’t Worry About the Smiles, They’re Normal is now available for purchase at Domy Books in Austin, TX and Nudashank Gallery in Baltimore, MD. Sweet! Thanks for carrying it guys!

Also, I would like to highlight a feature of this Test Everything website. I know I have mentioned it before, but in the column to the right is a link to sign up for the email list. Now, I haven’t sent an official Test Everything email newsletter out yet, but by signing up not only will it be easier for you to receive updates from Test Everything, but you will also be eligible for prizes. That is right, prizes and surprises. There will be contests for people on the email list only to participate in, and probably a few other announcements, that I will just never post on here. Most of these prizes are also things that aren’t in the store (yet) and other items no one has seen.
In other words, please sign up for the email list, it’ll make your life easier and more wonderful. There are 47 subscribers right now (thank you awesome people), lets see if we can get 100 by the end of July. Maybe more. Tell your friends about it. No spam, promise.
Thanks everybody. And be looking for the next theme to be posted in a day or two. It is a good one!
~rand
(again that deadline is: WEDNESDAY, JULY 29th)
