In today’s artwork podcast we are talking about artwork collaboration strategies. We are going to give you some tips on different strategies you could get the job done with other artists and creatives.
A person artist commences a drawing and the other finishes it
Collaborating can be great entertaining, so you want to try a thing, but you want to keep it really easy to check the h2o, you create a drawing (or part of a drawing) and then ship it to the particular person you have selected to collaborate with… and then that person could contend the drawing, or incorporate their own element to it.
Or greater continue to you could equally generate a drawing and then swap!
And this reminds me of that sport we applied to participate in as young children, called ‘Hats.’ And what you would do, is draw a hat at the top rated of a piece of paper, then fold it down so the other man or woman couldn’t see it, then they would attract the head, fold it down and hand it back again. And you’d maintain undertaking it right up until you arrived at the feet. Then at the conclusion, you would open up the paper and reveal the weird particular person you’d both made.
A sketchbook relay
A further truly awesome plan would be to get together with a team of close friends and do a sketchbook relay. So, you would sketch the 1st web site, then deliver the ebook to the next particular person and they would fill the up coming website page and so on. Inevitably, the full ebook would be a person massive collaboration!
We have considered about performing this for Kick in the Creatives, but the logistics could possibly be a bit difficult since we are all over the globe! But it could be actually amazing to do anything like that.
Edit two parts of art jointly digitally
You could each build anything by hand and then edit it together digitally with a image modifying application like Photoshop.
One way of accomplishing this is to each start out with the very same reference picture. Do your very own interpretation and then see if you can mix the two together digitally. Or a single of you could start out so the other can see what they have to operate with.
We did think that we could maybe do a collab like this. Maybe Tara could draw a deal with and then Sandra could draw a piece of fruit or a hand holding a glass and then we see if we could slash them alongside one another digitally
Various artists draw on an on line drawing board
There are on the web drawing boards where by you can get jointly with on line buddies and all draw on the very same board. Tara after did this at an on-line occasion and the outcomes had been very awesome.
A next artists functions above the best of your art digitally
Yet another way to collaborate is for one of you could develop a piece of art and then the other human being performs around the prime digitally. That’s the way I have labored with the collaborations I have accomplished. Mainly because the other artists function digitally, I started off and then scanned in my piece and then they labored over he top rated.
Make every other an art box project
One more way you could collaborate is by sending every other a package deal of artwork materials that the other human being has to create anything with. This could be the components that you like to use that could possibly force the other human being out of their comfort and ease zone.
Sandra and Tara did this by sending every single other art supplies of an agreed value.
Artwork postcard swap
So, on our Fb team, we organise a postcard swap at the starting of just about every thirty day period. So, everyone who desires to do it, places their name down and then we randomly choose pairs. Then these two folks have to build a postcard and send out it to the other man or woman by the stop of the month. So it not strictly a collab, but it’s a attractive way of sharing artwork and so great to receive one thing special in the submit, which is not a invoice or a piece of junk mail!
E-book of art or selection of postcards
You could arrive together as a team and create a reserve of artwork or collection of postcards – as effectively as currently being a awesome piece it could assistance cross promote you. This would get the job done very well if you were being going to go to an celebration exactly where you could hand them out
Collaborate on art worries you set yourselves
You could collaborate by setting every single other artwork worries. This is how we began functioning with each other and what got me drawing yet again. You can pick a obstacle that suits you both of those even if you technique it distinctive ways.
Operating with a good friend can help keep you accountable
Do an present artwork obstacle collectively
You could do the exact organised artwork problem with a buddy. That way you can cheer each other on and look at notes!
Joint art exhibition or party
Yet another way of collaborating is to do a joint exhibition or party. Sandra did a joint exhibition a few of several years in the past, with her mate Kerry, who’s also an artist and it genuinely does make it significantly less nerve-wracking, because you have just about every other there for moral guidance. Also, you have a person else to help with all of the organising, which can be really a headache on your individual.
Tara has organised a collaboration party for NFTS. It delivers with each other 30 artists to do 30 collaborations in 30 days. We have to alert you although this is really an endeavor to provide 30 folks jointly, Tara was sensation quite pressured at periods. So you may well want to start off tiny and then create up to greater collaborations
Collaborate on teaching artwork
You could collaborate on educating artwork. Is there a thing that you and a pal would appreciate to educate. Why not train it alongside one another and provide two perspectives to the table
Collaborate on artwork in various sorts
And as we know, art comes in heaps of diverse forms. It does not have to be all about visible art. You can collaborate on a piece of songs, a poem, or probably a story, like Tara and I did.
Or it’s possible 1 can create the e book and the other could illustrate. Just really don’t ask me to illustrate it if not you’ll even now be waiting a few decades afterwards!
In actuality it could be any kind of inventive endeavour mixed alongside one another. I have not long ago noticed some digital artists collaborating with musicians to generate animated art with songs
Matters to think about when collaborating
One particular final detail and it is an critical issue to consider… If you are wondering of embarking on a really serious collab, then make absolutely sure you are self-confident that you are a excellent match. Remember, you will equally will need to be reliable and on the very same website page, in any other case you may well find that you are going to possibly enable down the other individual or they will enable you down.
