Ciao gatti e gattini
I noticed we have some new members, so I thought I'd put up a new journal explaining our group.
Here in the Hopelandic Club, 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.
Our group also does club activities, unfortunately I haven't been very active in continuing activities. It gets hard keeping a club active when you're working on your own, and still have work to be done away from the computer. Which reminds me, if you ever want to become co-founder and help keep this club alive, feel free to ask me about it. I'd be more than happy to have some extra help on this group.
And now for the club rules (don't worry, they're only a couple):
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.
Also, if you ever have an idea for a contest, feel free to make a suggestion to me, the club founder Strabius.
Well, that just about wraps it up. I wish you all nothing but the best, and strive for what makes you happy. Enjoy yourself, have a wonderful day, love life, and remember we should all be alive.
