About ArtMaker: For decades, many talented artists of subculture have gone unrecognized and furthermore unrecorded, their contributions, ideologies and names lost to us forever. The ArtMaker forum exists to create a public record whereby such "genius of instance," can be documented and encouraged.
We look forward to seeing a wide-range of artists in the forum: visual artists, performers, musicians, designers, hair/make-up gurus, cartoonists, etc. The definition of "artmaker" in the ArtMaker forum is as diverse as the talents of those who post.
As an artist, the first thing to do in the ArtMaker forum is to set up a topic about yourself. Tell the Motherboards community about your art, present or link to descriptions/examples of your work, discuss your background, techniques, etc.
Once you create your topic, we invite you to fill-out the ArtMaker "mini-interview," and email your replies to firstname.lastname@example.org. From your replies we will write a short, positive bio that we will post to your topic to help introduce you to the community here. After that, we encourage you to have friends and supporters get involved; and to update your topic on the ArtMaker forum as often as you'd like, posting announcements of upcoming shows, requesting feedback, etc.
In addition, the MotherBoards community-at-large is invited to contribute via posting reviews, providing "inside looks" at the artists and creating topics of critical discussion, to establish a valuable research resource for "our artists" in the years to come.
If you have any questions about the forum, please contact the moderators at email@example.com
