Original Sketch

UPDATE: Youth in Arts says that they have no problem with the image as is but they don't think that they can find a sponsor. So I'm looking for sponsorship on my own. For more info: www.indiegogo.com/Erik-Jagger-at-the-Italian-Street-Paint...


UPDATE 5/12 7am PDT: I am just $15 shy of 6x6 space at the festival and halfway to the amount needed for a large square (9x9). 65 hours to left to contribute to the cause: www.indiegogo.com/Erik-Jagger-at-the-Italian-Street-Paint...


UPDATE 5/17: I'll be doing the 9x9 square! Woohoo! Thanks to my supporters and contributors for making it happen.


This is the original sketch that I submitted for this year's Street Painting Fest. The theme this year is Bella Terra (Beautiful Earth) and I thought I'd do something a little...um...playful with that idea.

    This image was rejected and the submission guidelines quoted:

    "No words or symbols intended as advertising may be included in your street painting image (the sponsor’s name or message will be lettered at the top). Youth in Arts is a nonprofit serving children and families and the Italian Street Painting Festival is a public event for all ages. Artwork must be appropriate for a family audience, in the opinion of the Youth in Arts Artist Selection Comittee(sic). Additionally, sponsors and artists are partners. Because your art represents your sponsor, your subject matter be something the sponsor will consider a positive partnership. Generally, sponsors do not like to see their name associated with images of violence, gore or major controversy. If you are selected as an artist for the 2010 Youth in Arts Italian Street Painting Festival, you must render the image included with this application. Any change after submission must be approved by Youth in Arts."

    huh?! What in the above language makes this image unacceptable?

    I believe that all of the violent and other objectional material, such as the muskrat orgy, the copraphilia choir, and the Limbaugh Baiting are taking place on the other side of the engine in the YAASC mindset.

    I contribution is in order
