This is week III of #Whisper! If any of you know of the game Telephone, this is a take on that. The beauty of Whisper is that it has no winners, and the excitement of it comes from the creative interpretations.
Steemians, welcome to Whisper Gallery III!
Whisper Gallery III, Week III: Featured Artist is @longer!
This is an awesome take on @soyrosa's piece from last week. I love the way this is turning. All of the form from the Hendrix style portrait is still here and taking it's own form. Wonderful job, and I hope everyone is able to check out @longer's post (link below).
If that's not enough, check out the process and animated gif she has on her page of this piece!
How will @voronoi transform this piece? Check out next week!
What is Whisper?
A chain of artistic creations that are each initiated by a seed idea/art piece (one piece of artwork inspires the next piece, and so on). Each week we will have a featured artist who will create a piece that is inspired by the piece from the week before.
The beauty of this trail is seeing this creative interpretation and reinvention take place on a high level.
Helping Build an Art Community
We want to collectively build an art community. This is a great way to connect us, support each other through up-votes, comments, and follows. Steemit can be a slow-growing platform for creatives starting out, and the future goal is to roll this into a community event where people can be perpetually submitting to the chain.
With Whisper Gallery I now behind us, I have found so much gratification in the ability to bring more eyes to artists as well as create a showcase beyond the contest level. Art is often abstract to people, and I think when we're able to tell a collective story in our own styles, it begins to unravel that mystery for some. If our goal is to make more art, more appreciators of art, more supporters of the art community, and more people happy in general, I think we've succeeded. More to come!
Steemians, I encourage everyone to re-steem this post to gain more eyes on the project and allow the artists to get more rewards for their high-quality work. Every comment, upvote, resteem, and follow helps!
Thanks to several community members for the support. I greatly respect and appreciate @sndbox for allowing this to be pushed forward and succeed in the way it did.
