Art on demand
If you’re a regular reader of Cultural Zest, you’ll know we are fans of Graham Annable. Our very first feature was an interview with him, and we enjoyed playing Puzzle Agent and look forward to the next part. And you know what’s really cool? You can tell Mr. Annable to draw something, and he’ll do it! Well, if he has time anyway.
The first thing you need to do is follow Graham Annable on Twitter. Then you wait. And you wait some more. If you’re lucky, you will catch him between things to do. In those periods, the Grickle artist tends to doodle, taking requests from his Twitter followers. Now, if you’re really lucky, he’ll turn your suggestion into a personal doodle. He did that yesterday with my cat eating snails with the shells still on in a restaurant idea. The result can be viewed here. Pretty cool, huh? And as you can see in his Flickr photostream, he’s made quite a lot of those Twitter doodles already.
Has Graham Annable turned one of your ideas into a Grickle doodle? Do you know any other artists who take requests, either on Twitter or somewhere else? Maybe you are an artist yourself who draws on demand? If any of these apply to you, please do not be shy, and speak your mind in the comments below!
