Calling All Artists: Win $6000 by Illustrating San Francisco’s 3rd Street Corridor

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

From San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Jose Herrera comes news of the Bayview Merchants Association‘s Third Street Corridor Project – how would you like to earn $6000 just for creating 6-10 iconic images illustrating the Lower Third?

Get all the deets below. And after you get paid, be sure to forward ten percent to me, your new agent. (Affirm our agreement by reading this sentence - welcome aboard.) But get cracking, as your first deadline is March 22nd, 2010.

You can’t win if you don’t play!

Introduction to the Project

The 3rd Street Corridor project is searching for local artists to create a series of 6-10 iconic images to represent the Bayview Hunters Point District of San Francisco. These images will be stylized illustrations of local landmarks that capture the spirit of this part of the city and will be used on a series of street banners and other collateral such as T-shirts. An example of a similar campaign is artist Michael Schwab’s series of prints for the Golden Gate National Parks.

Final selections for scenery will be communicated to the artist at the time of the commission. These scenes may include:

  • Bayview Opera House
  • T-Line
  • Quesada Gardens
  • View of Downtown from 3rd
  • Shipyards
  • Candlestick Park
  • Local Art and Murals
  • MLK Municipal Pool
  • Bayview Library
  • Industrial Buildings

Candidate Selection

The ideal candidate for this commission will be a local artist who lives and/or works in the Bayview Hunters Point District of San Francisco and can bring his or her personal style into the project and offer an authentic view of these neighborhoods. The artist must also be able to work within the established color palette of the 3rd Street logo (red, yellow, green and black- see samples for reference). To be considered for this project please submit three (3) JPEG images of your past work that best communicates your style. If you are selected as a finalist you may be commissioned to create one sample illustration before the final contract for the rest of the series.

Compensation

The selected artist will receive a $6,000 stipend for the final series of images. Artwork and reproduction rights will become property of the Third Street Corridor Project. In the event that finalists are asked to create a sample illustration as part of the selection process then they will be compensated $500 for their time.

Application Deadline

To be considered for this project, please email three JPEG samples of your work, a brief description of your background and a written statement of why you think you would be an ideal candidate for this project to bayviewmerchantsassociation@gmail.com no later than

MONDAY, MARCH 22, 12:00pm.

Which Celebrity Endorser Makes the Best Case for Ending Canada’s Seal Slaughter?

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

Let’s see here, the bay area hasn’t heard from PETA since that thing where they pwned the South San Francisco Ronald McDonald in front of all those kids in September and the red blood bikini chicken bath thing on Van Ness last summer. Now, it seems the focus of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animules has traveled up to the Great White North for the start of the 2009-2010 baby seal hunting season.

Some of our celebrities don’t approve of killing the furry cuties.  Who makes the best case against the slaughter? As always, click to expand:

T-Shirt Meme Evolution: From Defend Brooklyn to Defend Fallujah

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

Living out here on the west si-iide of the country, it can be easy to get mixed up over the “DEFEND ______ + Kalishnikov AK-47 icon (or RPG/launcher or similar)” T-shirt meme. The “DEFEND BROOKLYN” shirts came first, surprisingly enough. Of course they’re easy to interpret – we are being admonished to defend Brooklyn from people like the “Williamsburg ‘tards,” whatever that means.

But DEFEND FALLUJAH is harder to figure out. The wearer is expressing support for the U.S. Marines? the Republican Guard? The Iraqi First Army? It might depend on the year that the wearer first acquired the shirt in question. It’s all a bit ambiguous.

Google Goes Gay for a Day at San Francisco Pride

Monday, June 30th, 2008

There seemed to be quite a few Gayglers (gay Googlers) in the crowd during Pride 2008 last weekend. They weren’t too hard to spot, what with their official T-shirts, as in years past

What will be the next “-oogler” coinage to take off?  Noogler, Loogler, or Xoogler?

Online, you might notice a similar rainbow theme, depending on what you search for.
