Group DescriptionTHE COMPETITION WILL STOP TOMORROW, 25TH AUGUST, AT 12 MIDDAY! (BRITISH TIME) ALL ENTRIES MUST BE IN BY THEN, MY FRIENDS.
The new record is called Belle and Sebastian Write About Love. While I was doing the art, I got Kim from the ace band, Zoey Van Goey, to write this in chalk in a few secluded spots in Glasgow, and I took her picture. Here she is: [https://www.flickr.com/photos/52896448@N06/4878475935]
What I was thinking was, it would be fun if some of you tried the same thing, and either filmed yourself doing it or got someone to take a picture. You can upload them here for everyone to see. We'll choose some of the best ones to use in our online TV show and will award some trophies for the most striking, scenic, artistic or funny contributions.
To sum up, I'd like to see pictures or footage of you writing either Belle and Sebastian Write About Love; or Write About Love; in secret or public places, in the town you live in.
Post them here - and please, remember to use chalk or at least something non permanent!!
August 13th, midday
So far so great. There are some really nice ideas coming in so far, really beautiful. I'm totally into this. Someone asked me if there was a time limit - i think if you aim for the end of August to get your pics in, that would be good. As an incentive, i must say that the ones that arrive quickly are more likely to be included in the "gallery" we're making as part of the "Write About Love" TV show .
But i'll still be handing out a few prizes in September for the best..
ps. i particularly like the ones where people are actually pictured in them, and you're in a public place! It's kind of bold, and it lets me have a window into your world. By the end of the month, I want representatives from Jakarta, Philadelphia, Osaka, Santiago, Manila, Helsinki, Turin, Melbourne, Brighton, Guadalajara, Lyon....
ps. if you want to ask me anything about the process, let's take it to the B&S page
