Ok all you artsy peoples with digital cameras - get clickin'. Everything that's been sent in so far has worked up real good but more would surely make the finals look even better. Remember, this is a Floyd theme so a perfectly posed picture of your little sister isn't necessary, but an abstract of what could be an albatross flying out of the sun would fit quite nicely.

To date there's only been 14 (yeah, 14!) contributors, with me, Obscured Echoes, and FromNorth submitting the bulk of it. C'mon, this is your 15 minutes of fame 8) , don't pass it up :lol: .

Since Ridan has chosen a new road to travel (miss you already girl!) it's probably a good idea to take another person on board the artwork team (hope you don't mind SDPilot). PM me if you're interested. And if you have a Masters in fine arts... you're hired :lol: :lol: :lol:

Last thing - we havn't returned to the old NPF website software so posting art directly into these messages ain't possible :cry:. I know I could find somewhere on the web to dump a few final artwork examples and then link them back here, but I've been just so darned busy watching TV and taking naps that I just havn't had time to fit it into my brutal schedule. Maybe the new volunteer could help with that.

Send pix! Become world famous!

Oh not at all! My role in this is simply the guy that gathers the audio and places it side by side with a little tweaking, the artwork side is a completely different ball game that is yours to run, I have complete confidence in you buddy!

Yes, the artwork made it through. Very nice work! Everyone, please add your NPF username to your message when you send.

I think everyone contributing should get a credit somewhere on the CD pages. Rather than fire up a poll, post here if you think NPF usernames should be credited or should your real names be used?

We're getting near the end so get your submissions in quickly. :smt115

Come on people!!!
Send us some of the art that i know you all have at home!

Stick a triangle on your cat's head or something...That will do for DSOTM :lol:

No, seriously, send us something that reminds you of Pink Floyd.
We are running out of time here.
Remember, the art should be YOUR visual interpretation of Pink Floyd.

P.S. Stu and Mooner, we are running out of space on yahoo. Something must be deleted from that account and i'm not sure i'm the one to do it.
I'v send a rather large "art" file and it's not coming thru...


Cheerio!

Coincidentally Im going through them at the moment, I just decided to take 5 minutes out and have a quick look in here, Ive managed to free up 7% by making a start on the 'sent box', more will be freed up over the next couple of hours.

Many people have been asking if it's too late to send in artwork. No. We'll be including ALL artwork submitted right up until a few days before this fantastic project premiers. It may not be on the front cover but it surely will be in there somewhere. So keep it coming people :lol:

i was kinda hoping that i could do the layout for some pages. i've got lots of nice photos, but i'm not sure which ones to send you. if you give me some song titles that need artwork, i can come up with designs to go with them. i'm handy with copy layout, having been a fanzine editor for years.

lemme know if that's something you need done and i'll try to make some time you guys for sure!

I'd love to accomodate you missbee, but I'd probably get shot if I tipped the hat on the song list. simpledumbpilot is your man. None-the-less, how would you like to put something together with the CD title in mind. Since NOUIP has taken the lead, I've found myself focusing on it as I put artwork together... your additions would be very appreciated. 8)
