Call for participants!

You love painting and drawing and want to contribute? Please email [email protected] with the following:
– Describe what kind of worlds you would like to paint.
– A sentence about yourself and a link to samples of your drawings/painting.
– Your desired username.


How does it work?

As a participant, you can pick a free spot on the quilt. You are then provided with a template image like this. To create your painting you use a graphics editor of your choice like Gimp or Photoshop. A drawing tablet will be helpful. You paint out the transparent area of the template while leaving the frame untouched and blending your painting into the neighboring parts. When you are done, you upload the image to the site where it is stiched into the quilt and becomes a part of the larger artwork.



Tiles have to blend into the neighboring parts in a meaningful way. No gross things, no violence, no weapons, no photocollages. Everything should be painted by hand.


Thank you for your interest and have a nice day!
