Hello everyone! Today I have some news that some might find disappointing, but hopefully everyone will see that I'm choosing whats best for the project.
Some of you may know that I recently started a small business TAFE course, so that I could improve my management skills and run the projects more efficiently. As part of the course we are setting up a potential small business, and I have started a small digital magazine/blog. Because of this, I haven't had much time to dedicate to Sparkle Spectrum or the Princess Project. I was thinking of putting the projects on hiatus for the time being, but after considering all the time and effort that every artist has dedicated, I realized I couldn't do that. So this is my proposal;
I want to combine all three projects into one. How this would work for Sparkle Spectrum:
First of all, we will no longer be using the Sparkle Spectrum group. Everything will now be at Pyxi Magazine
Instead of putting all the artworks into an artbook, I would like to put several artworks in each monthly issue of the magazine. $1 from each artwork will go to the selected charity for each volume sold. For example, if an issue contains 3 Pink Parade and 2 Endless Blue artworks, $3 will go to BCC Australia and $2 to Men's Health Australia for every magazine sold. This means we actually have the potential to raise even more money then we would have through artbooks ( because the cost of printing artbooks is so high, but magazines, especially digital ones, are quite cheap in comparison) Which I think is exciting! What does this mean for artists who have completed their artwork?
Simply let us know if you are happy with this new idea and give us permission to use your artwork in the magazine.
If you are unhappy, you may remove your artwork from the project, just let us know. What does this mean for artists who have not completed their artwork?
Good news is, if you still want to be part of the project, you no longer have to worry about due dates! Simply complete your artwork whenever you have the time and send it to us by note or e-mail.
If you no longer want to create an artwork, just let us know. How this would work for Princess Project
The Princess Project wont change much, except that we will no longer be using the old group.
Please head over to the the Pyxi Magazine group
Thank you everyone, I hope we can continue to work together!
