Autumn has come around again and the leaves outside the studio have already started cascading in brilliant colors. The nights are chilly and the breeze is a haunting murmur through the trees—perfect weather for hot drinks and reading a good book by the fire. If you ask Rein, it’s the perfect time to let the muse take over and allow the season to inspire. So, the next month is all about you and what you love to do!
Over the next four weeks, Impluvium Studios will be hosting a contest to see how the autumn air feeds YOUR imagination. Send in your autumn-themed poetry, photography, art, personal reflections, day dreams, and photo-document your outdoor adventures. Unique recipes, crafts, and sculpture entries are very welcome (all you have to do is send a high resolution photograph of your finished work, beautifully displayed). Do you have something in mind that isn’t listed here? New ideas are what the booklet is all about!
The studio’s resident creative anomaly Rein Eire will select the most engaging entries to include in the studio’s 2013 Fall Digital Booklet, which will feature your work alongside other talented artists. The digital booklet will be delivered to you in PDF format, easy to share and send to friends and family.
Do you want a taste of what the electronic booklet will look like? Hop on over to the studio website to view the results of our previous contests: Seasonal Digital Booklets
