A few months ago at Magic-Con, artist Tony Cabral created illustrations of each presenter. The illustrations were presented in a gallery at the conference, as well as a book sold by Cabral shortly after. His work is incredible - filled with remarkable detail. You can see Tony's illustrations here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/magic-con/galleries/72157623688844676/ Tonight, we wanted to host a contest based on that premise - the ART of magic. We don't expect you to be the next Tony Cabral, Picasso, or Monet. We just ask for your best shot. The task is to utilize any medium (pen and paper, a napkin, or digital art) to create an image of any artist within this industry. It could be David Blaine, Chris Kenner, Criss Angel, Andrei Jikh - anyone you like. But the goal is to make the image recognizably certainly that artist. The more creative, the better - what the image shows is entirely up to you. If you don't want to use a pen and paper, you could check out either of the two websites below for easy online illustrations. You have 3.5 hours to make it happen. Submissions (images) should be posted in response to THIS forum thread on or before 11:00pm EST. Winner, like last week, will receive an unreleased deck of Erdnase Playing Cards printed by the Conjuring Arts Research Center, featuring illustrations by myself and Guy Hollingworth. http://mrdoob.com/projects/harmony http://sketch.odopod.com/ UPDATE: Winner has been posted.
