    Its that time of year again, so get ready to start swapping art! The second Secret Santa Art Swap is upon us, courtesy of The Dont Think Twice Collective.

    The deal is that artists from whole over the globe will make and send an original piece of art, and in return recieve a piece from another artist somewhere else in the world.

    WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO:

    1... email your NAME, ADDRESS, and a link to your work to dontthinktwice@hotmail.co.uk . Closing date for entries is 29th November 08

    2... Ill take all the names and a secret santa will be drawn for each artist out of a big fat hat!

    3... You will be told by the 1st December which artist you will have to send an original piece of art to.

    4... Make some art that you'd love to get. What you put into this you'll get back. Remember that it must be an original piece of art.

    5... Post your artwork to the artist who's name i will give you by 11th of December, in plenty of time for christmas.

    6... Dont Think Twice Collective are not responsible for secret santa's being lazy fools, or the postman stealing your art..

    Get cracking!!

    Wasn't sure if I should approve this one or not...

    I guess if anybody is interested you could try it out.. it seems decently legit.

    I agree, one-hundred percent.

    Why should we have to send our art to this guy? Shouldn't they just tell us 'who, and where' to send them to, instead?

    This is a bogus thread.

    I like this idea and it gets the Small Time Seal of Approval.
    But I'd rather if a mod made a thread for this and stickied it. I'm not very willing to submit information to someone who joined today.
    No offense to the OP, of course.

    hell hes a cop!!!

    it makes perfect sense.

    wants to get names and addresses of writers.
    and a piece to support we write.

    its the only answer.



    lets all mail him gay fisting porn. :D

    Other then the fact the OP is an unknown trying to do this I think Rule 6 is kinda fucked. If someone put their name in the hat and didn't fulfill their obligation then they should get a temp-ban or something. Karma.

    And I'm still going to opine that this idea get followed through, but from a more reputable member. It's like a sticker trade....but secret. :eek:

    everyone agrees to do a sketch(they dont know who)
    then somone collects all the names and picks somone randomly for everyone to sketch their name...

    for example if me slushi zof and borg entered
    i cud do 1 for borg,
    org sketches for slushi,
    slushi for zof,
    and zof dose one for me...

    as for quality controle
    have a dope group,
    intermeadiat
    and uber toy

    But what of those of us who don't have much proficiency in letters..?
    It helps the project flow smoother if you just use art, period. Perhaps along with name and address you could send along a general idea of what you like, maybe two or three things that you'd like to see someone portray through a visual medium?

    or instead of doing piece exchanges we could male them the whole dam canvas?

    Mailing the physical piece would be the whole point.
    It doesn't exactly make things fun when you upload a .jpg on a website.
    It'd just turn The Secret Santa thread into another sketch thread.

    true. i doubt any of us are willing to send our own works across the country.

    or you could create a secret organization in which a small number of people have pledged thier alligence to garuntee an exchange for everyone within the group.

    sort of like " the exchange" or someshit

    http://www.graffitiprojects.com/exchange/writers/revok.html

    what those guys did. lol
