In today’s artwork podcast we are chatting about artwork collaboration strategies. We are going to give you some suggestions on different ways you could perform with other artists and creatives.
A person artist starts a drawing and the other finishes it
Collaborating can be great pleasurable, so you want to test something, but you want to continue to keep it definitely simple to exam the water, you make a drawing (or aspect of a drawing) and then send it to the human being you have decided on to collaborate with… and then that man or woman could contend the drawing, or insert their individual aspect to it.
Or far better nevertheless you could both equally make a drawing and then swap!
And this reminds me of that video game we made use of to perform as little ones, referred to as ‘Hats.’ And what you would do, is attract a hat at the top of a piece of paper, then fold it down so the other person couldn’t see it, then they would attract the head, fold it down and hand it back. And you’d retain carrying out it until eventually you attained the toes. Then at the finish, you would open up the paper and reveal the weird particular person you’d both equally developed.
A sketchbook relay
Another truly great notion would be to get collectively with a group of buddies and do a sketchbook relay. So, you would sketch the initially page, then send the guide to the upcoming individual and they would fill the following site and so on. Sooner or later, the full guide would be a person major collaboration!
We’ve imagined about accomplishing this for Kick in the Creatives, but the logistics may possibly be a little bit difficult mainly because we are all in excess of the globe! But it could be truly neat to do one thing like that.
Edit two parts of artwork alongside one another digitally
You could each develop a little something by hand and then edit it with each other digitally with a picture editing app like Photoshop.
One way of performing this is to both of those get started with the exact same reference picture. Do your personal interpretation and then see if you can blend the two alongside one another digitally. Or one particular of you could start out so the other can see what they have to get the job done with.
We did think that we could maybe do a collab like this. It’s possible Tara could draw a face and then Sandra could attract a piece of fruit or a hand holding a glass and then we see if we could lower them together digitally
Numerous artists draw on an online drawing board
There are on the web drawing boards exactly where you can get collectively with on the web good friends and all attract on the exact same board. Tara after did this at an on-line function and the effects ended up pretty awesome.
A next artists operates about the leading of your artwork digitally
Yet another way to collaborate is for one particular of you could build a piece of artwork and then the other person works about the top rated digitally. Which is the way I have labored with the collaborations I have performed. Due to the fact the other artists work digitally, I began and then scanned in my piece and then they worked more than he leading.
Create each and every other an artwork box challenge
A different way you could collaborate is by sending every other a package deal of art components that the other individual has to produce anything with. This could be the resources that you like to use that could possibly push the other human being out of their comfort and ease zone.
Sandra and Tara did this by sending every other artwork materials of an agreed price.
Artwork postcard swap
So, on our Facebook team, we organise a postcard swap at the starting of just about every thirty day period. So, any individual who needs to do it, places their name down and then we randomly decide on pairs. Then individuals two men and women have to make a postcard and ship it to the other man or woman by the finish of the thirty day period. So it not strictly a collab, but it is a charming way of sharing art and so awesome to acquire one thing specific in the post, that is not a bill or a piece of junk mail!
E book of artwork or assortment of postcards
You could occur collectively as a team and create a guide of artwork or selection of postcards – as very well as getting a wonderful piece it could assist cross advertise you. This would work properly if you were heading to show up at an party where you could hand them out
Collaborate on artwork issues you established yourselves
You could collaborate by placing each individual other artwork difficulties. This is how we begun working together and what bought me drawing once more. You can opt for a problem that suits you both equally even if you technique it distinctive means.
Working with a good friend can help keep you accountable
Do an current artwork problem with each other
You could do the exact organised artwork challenge with a mate. That way you can cheer each and every other on and assess notes!
Joint artwork exhibition or occasion
Yet another way of collaborating is to do a joint exhibition or occasion. Sandra did a joint exhibition a pair of years ago, with her good friend Kerry, who’s also an artist and it truly does make it much less nerve-wracking, due to the fact you have every single other there for moral aid. Also, you have someone else to assistance with all of the organising, which can be pretty a headache on your very own.
Tara has organised a collaboration celebration for NFTS. It delivers with each other 30 artists to do 30 collaborations in 30 times. We have to alert you even though this is rather an enterprise to deliver 30 men and women alongside one another, Tara was feeling rather pressured at moments. So you may want to start modest and then establish up to even larger collaborations
Collaborate on teaching artwork
You could collaborate on teaching artwork. Is there one thing that you and a mate would love to educate. Why not educate it together and bring two perspectives to the table
Collaborate on art in distinct types
And as we know, art arrives in lots of diverse sorts. It doesn’t have to be all about visible art. You can collaborate on a piece of new music, a poem, or possibly a story, like Tara and I did.
Or probably a single can compose the e-book and the other could illustrate. Just do not inquire me to illustrate it if not you’ll however be ready 3 yrs later!
In actuality it could be any kind of imaginative endeavour mixed together. I have recently viewed some electronic artists collaborating with musicians to develop animated artwork with songs
Things to think about when collaborating
One particular last factor and it’s an essential detail to consider… If you are contemplating of embarking on a critical collab, then make positive you are confident that you are a fantastic match. Remember, you will equally need to have to be trusted and on the exact web page, usually you may come across that you’ll either enable down the other man or woman or they will permit you down.
