Convocatório de Arte postal
Projeto Mago – Mage Project

Convidamos voces para participarem do nosso Projeto de
Arte Postal
Mago ou Magi, plural da palavra Persa antiga magus,
significando tanto imagem quanto "um homem sábio",
que vêm do verbo cuja raiz é "meh", significando grande, e em sânscrito,
“maha". Mago usualmente denota aquele que pratica a magia ou ocultismo;
no entanto, pode indicar também alguém que possui conhecimentos e habilidades
superiores como, por exemplo, quando se diz que um músico é um "mago dos teclados",
pois toca com perfeição o instrumento musical.

Tema: Mago
Técnica: Livre
Tamanho: A4 ( no máximo)
Inicio do Projeto: 2010
Término do Projeto: 3 / 11 / 2013

Qualquer pessoa pode participar,
Artistas e qualquer pessoa ao redor do mundo, enviando trabalhos com o tema “Mago”.
Não Haverá Júri e os trabalhos recebidos não serão devolvidos.
Os Trabalhos serão catalogados e estarão disponível no blog da Toca do Lobo sem valor comercial.

Hiya,

Happy New Year! Hope it's going well for you. I finally managed to finish my sketchbook, post it and complete my online profile and portfolio. Did you do yours? I'd love to connect with you on the Art House Coop site and see what you did with your book. What's your name so I can find you, or you can find me.

All the best,

Leslie

That's amazing. How do you practice?
I love your sketchbook idea. Fantastic. I'm torn between doing lots of drawings, prints, or pin hole sketches of pigeons and /or other animals that scavenge, or doing a kind of photo and text journal of my found objects I've collected and keep in a jar.

I too heard about Krishnamurti as a teenager, but it went over my head a bit. I took to The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran. I used to take quotes from it and put them into sermonistic letters to my mother, who I thought was hippocrytical, and should treat me more like an adult. ("your children are not your children...") I was only 15, but thought I was there! Strangely much later in Life, around age 30 I took to buddhism and remain a practicioner, and member of SGI.
I like your sketchbook title, too. Wow, that's going to be interesting. Any ideas yet how you will fill it?

That's cool you were into philosophy from any early age. I guess I was too, if you count 15 early. Inspired by my dad, 70's Californian culture and teachers in high school. That's amazing you started the sketchbook project. How interesting! it's a small world. I got my moleskin about 3/4 weeks ago! My theme is the Scavenger one.
