Art Submissions

Alright....

So, if you've been reading my blog in the last 24 hours, you'd know that I'm planning on releasing music a little differently in the future....

One Song released per month (I'm going to do the 1st day of every month), easily downloaded from my website, with an option to donate whatever amount you like in return for the download.

I wanted to add another way of including you fine people in this.... with regards to the artwork. Each monthly single will still have artwork. It will be included in the download package, and will be embedded in the mp3, so it shows up in iTunes, and on your iPod.

I realized this morning that it would be fun to accept art submissions openly from you guys! The winner of each month's submissions will have their art featured on the single at the beginning of the next month. Cool?

Here are the details....

You just need to create 1 image, 1000x1000 (pixels), in either JPEG or TIF format.

Email your submissions to jonathansteingard@gmail.com with "ART SUBMISSION" in the subject line.

I'll be honest, and say that generally the more abstract images are going to appeal to me. :)

The name of the single for September 1st is called "Can't Stop". My name and the name of the single can be in the artwork, or not. It's up to you. The more creative the better!

Go to it!

I think it would be a super-cool idea to post all the submissions that WEREN'T picked in a monthly post. Cuz I like looking at pictures, and that would be reall cool!!!
