the penny experiment — TERRIBLY excited about this

now THIS is cool:

I’m looking for artists that would be willing to donate a bit of their time and talent for the penny experiment project. What I’m hoping to find is 100 different artists who will each create one postcard size piece of art that incorporates a number of their choosing (between 1 and 100) and a penny. In return, the artist will get (if desired) a bio on this website under the image of their artwork, a link to their own website and the knowledge that they helped out a lot of people in need during these difficult economic times.

The size of the art should be somewhere between 3 inches x 5 inches and 5 inches x 8 inches (a small to large postcard) on postcard type material incorporating both a real penny and the number that you choose. The style, color scheme, etc is completely up to you.

The art will be sold with 100% of the money going to purchase food for food banks. If this sounds like something in which you would like to participate, please contact me with five (5) numbers in order of preference that you would like to use for your art (you will only use one of these numbers, but this will allow me to assign one if some have already been taken). Please also feel free to contact me or leave a comment with any questions that you may have.

I will be submitting a piece. I asked for any ol' number, and have been assigned "78,." which is a totally kickass number. I'm excited about the possibilities for it. Many thanks to Julienne, who put this on my radar screen. Terribly cool concept. Delighted to be participating.
