BLANK PAD, OUR WEEKLY FORUM POST

Avatar

Welcome to Blank Pad,  a forum to discuss topics about our latest products, your comments and themes related to our obsessions – pen, paper and such.  This Friday, we would like to discuss a possible project with you.

Exaclair is currently working with Wet Paint Art to to have different artists draw, paint, watercolor, etc. anything they want in one Clairefontaine sketchbook. We are very excited to see the variety of art and the variation in the ways the different artists approach the idea. We would love to share these images (with information on the artists) with you, but need to know through what medium you would like to follow this project. Would you rather view the art through FLICKR or through an entirely new blog dedicated to the project? Or, do you have another idea on how we can share this with you? Finally, if we were to pass around another art book, would any of you like to participate in it?

  1. I would only add another website if it were ongoing, like skineart or urbansketchers, but it’s a big project.

    One thing about all of these competitions I wonder: Asking people to fill an entire notebook. Maybe some people work hard on only one or 2 pages. I just think a whole notebook is a lot to ask most people to fill and so you might be missing some great art.

  3. I think if it was presented in a separate website that emulated a notebook. As you click through it shows the page being flipped. I’ve read a few online magazines that way and I think it is a really good way to present the material.

  5. Flickr. Host the images on here. Make sure we can vew “all sizes” so we can see the original.
    that would be the best way. A new blog would be cumbersome and complicated to do, and why force people to add another something to their blogroll?
    but yes. Flickr, and it’s more likely there that people might discover the images, favorite them, and then come check out the blog here.
    The Art book….I suggest you carefully select who it goes to.(It might disappear somewhere)
    On top of that, you should round up some authors/writers/poets who use rhodia/clairfontaine and have them make a collaborative art book, with a specific theme, such as fairy tales/nature/etc. I’d definitely be interested in adding to and reading it, especially if it ends up containing a real story, in many different types of handwriting.
