The Spoils

Legendeer CHALLENGE 7:  UP
This week, we climb. Now, this is a relative term. Some of you may choose to free solo, others may prefer a  flight of steps. The extent to which you climb and the risk, are entirely up to you. Please be safe.
The challenge is presented in two parts. Part 1. You are to observe and document the destination to which you plan to climb from your vantage point below. Part 2. Document that place where you were standing from the vantage point above. 

Objective. 
This week’s objective focuses on physicality and goal setting. By documenting that which we intend to  climb, and, in turn, document that which we did climb, we have the ability to state our intent through our work, and to document proof of its execution. 
Be safe, climb smart, and take all precautions to exercise within your limits. 
* Legendeer and it’s creators are not liable for injury resulting from optional challenges. 
When completed, post your words, your photos, drawings, video, music, story or preferred method of creativity in the Facebook group. www.facebook.com/groups/legendeer/
#Legendeer. Life is story.

How to Start a Career in Illustration- new blog post here: http://blog.sterlinghundley.com/

In response to questions related to building a career in illustration, I put down some rambling thoughts. Not very eloquent, but to the point:

Excerpt: ” Invest in your career and build your audience. You should seek commissioned work that comes from the top down, as well as creating products that are available to your developing group of supporters from the bottom up. Pursue multiple streams of revenue, and put yourself into situations where you are surrounded by supportive, like-minded individuals.”

CHALLENGE 6: MONSTER HUNT Find your way to a relatively remote place in nature for this challenge (for those of you bound to a city, your urban jungle will work just fine). Keep your eyes open for things that lurk in the wild. Document any signs of the unexplainable while you are there- footprints, claw marks, and other signs that something else shares the woods with you. Of course, if you have any direct sightings of things which can not be explained, be sure to share your documentation, findings, your theories, and your experiences within the Legendeer Facebook group.You have permission to let your imagination run wild during this week’s challenge. Objective. Narrative development- the human mind naturally draws associations between disconnected things. Through priming with the introduction of the architecture of a simple narrative, we begin to look for clues and signs by which to complete that narrative. Priming can be a powerful tool in narrative development, as “an implicit memory effect in which exposure to one stimulus influences a response to another stimulus.” (from Wikipedia)Legendeer.

My new organization wallpaper for my desktop. Hot pink and gray? Yeah, kinda feeling that these days. The center illustration is an image I created for my ongoing painting series entitled The Spoils (www.sterlinghundley.com)

Attached is a clean copy, if you care to use, share, alter- drop in your own image/words/color scheme. I’d love to see how they are being used. The image is suited for a 17” display- 1900 x 1200 resolution. Let me know if you’d like it set to a specific resolution size.

Just added a new clean version for your own use/sharing, along with a link to the file.
