Call for participants!

Call for participants is currently open! If you want to contribute to the painting write an email [email protected] with a sentence about yourself, what kind of worlds you would like to paint, and your desired username! An account will be created for you manually.


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!
