Hello there, cats and kittens
I would like to first remind everyone of our current spring-themed contest. We still only have one entry in our folder, and the contest ends in the beginning of July, so please come join in the fun! For more details: [link]
Today is Father's Day! A day to appreciate the hard work of each and everyone's Dad, Daddy, Papa, and "Old Man". You can even tell your mother or step father how much you appreciate them! And if you have a husband, don't forget him either. It is a day to love and appreciate someone else, so go out and have a good one!
Hello there, and welcome to the Hopelandic Club!
Here we explore the creativity of the human mind through our art, and hope to inspire others to push the limits of their imagination. We love and support the ability of the individual, as well as each other, and motivate others to find their own creativity and ability.
The Hopelandic Club is also a place for people who are inspired by anything or anyone, such as Tim Burton, Lauren Faust, Jhonen Vasquez, Stephen King, Edgar Allen Poe, and many other creative minds.
So if you have not heard of the band, Sigur Ros, you may be wondering what "hopelandic" is. Well "hopelandic" is the English translation of "vonlenska", and it is a non-literal language created by the band that mainly focuses on the sound of language without the use of any real lyrics (similar to the use of scat-singing in jazz music). It was first used in their album Von, which translated into English means "hope".
Because Sigur Ros' hopelandic songs have no lyrics, they can be interpreted by the listener as anything they imagine it to be. That is why this group is called the Hopelandic Club, because it motivates others to use their imagination and search their own creativity.
Founder: "I, as an artist, enjoy and encourage everyone to share their art and creative skills! Feel free to share with the world what you are truly capable of! All is welcome."
Please no hate art. This club is meant to "love and support the ability of the individual, as well as each other", so let's not attempt to bring other members down.
Please no used-bases or traced-art. This club encourages art created by your own imagination, so please share your own original art. We will not judge you if you have a "fan character", but try and show others art that you created yourself. However, if you created a base or lineart for others to use, and it is your own creation, then that is acceptable.
Please nothing too vulgar. Originality and creativity are welcome, but keep in mind that there could be young or sensitive members of the club. If you want to feature your artwork in the group's gallery, and it contains any acts of violence, sexual acts, frontal nudity, or overall sensitive material, notify the Founder first and remember to censor it.
If you ever have an idea for a contest, feel free to make a suggestion to the club founder, ~XxDemonofLightxX.
Our current contest is a spring-themed art contest, so why not roll down those sunshine-covered grassy hills and join in the fun?
Art featured in the group's icon belong to (in order):
~HerrBlitzDiktator, ~Aineska-Siwel, ~MisoNoodles, and *Rinmeothichca.
Enjoy yourself, have a wonderful day, love life, and remember that we should all be alive.
