After much deliberation, I decided to open a group on flickr. It’s been an idea I have had for a while now, and I decided to finally put it out there and see what happens. Sorry to anyone hoping this was a fashion post, don’t worry I’ll have one soon! 🙂
With so many amazing sl artists and flickrites, I was trying hard to think of a way where we could collectively work on the same subject matter, and see how our different ideas and perceptions can influence each other and help us try different things. Because of that, i decided to make a group, called The Menagerie. Each month, there will be a new theme up for interpretation in this flickr group. Anyone who wants to can create an image or series of images based on the current “Monthly Theme”. It’s all up to interpretation, so go wherever you want to with them. This group is open admission, so anyone can join, the only guideline being that the images (snapshots, photoshopped pictures, ect.) posted MUST pertain to the current group theme.
JANUARY 2012 THEME: BEAUTIFUL LOSERS.
The first topic I chose, is the term “Beautiful Losers”. This isn’t a test or anything, its a way to express ourselves and see what we come up with. Go anywhere, be creative, just have fun! I’m currently working on my first submission for this, and I REALLY hope people like this idea and want to try it out. For anyone unsure of where to go with this theme, something to consider: There are many ” Beautiful Loser” characters in literature, film ect. (i.e.: Cio-Cio of Madame Butterfly) you could easily bring those ideas into sl to interpret how you like.
