HOW TO PARTICIPATE

 

 

ARTERIE is a charity initiative, created by comic artists and illustrators, to support all the people impacted by the earthquake which on August 24 struck central Italy.

ARTERIE welcomes all artists willing to donate up to three of their artworks for charity.

All participants can draw or donate comic strips, illustrations, prints (if HD), sketches, paintings, or signed copies of their publications.

Each artist can donate up to three pieces of his or her artworks.

Given the charity purpose of all the proceeds, the use of copyrighted characters (such as properties of DC comics, Marvel comics, Sergio Bonelli Editore, etc.) will be under no restrictions. In case a copyrighted character is interpreted, artists will be required to name it “tribute to”, and add the character’s proper name.

There are no technical restrains.

For digital artworks, a HD print (scan and print at min. 300 dpi) will be required to be printed on a suitable support, signed, and, where appropriated, numbered.

All the artworks must be sent as images to our email address before Saturday, September 10, 2016.

Please complete your email by specifying:

• Your name and family name

• Artwork dimensions (our suggestion: A4 format, i.e. 210 x 297 mm)

• Technique

• Type of support (paper, canvas, cardboard, etc.)

• Where appropriate, your artwork’s publication infos (date, place, page number)

• Your suggested bidding

• Your website or online gallery (optional)

 

FILE SIZE

All images need to be saved as .JPG or .PNG at 150 dpi resolution.

 

AUCTIONS

Auctions will be held online, starting from Thursday , September 22, 2016, in our new designated web area  ArterieAste .

THE SITE WILL NOT BE ACCESSIBLE UNTIL THURSDAY 22 SEPTEMBER.

Due to the huge number of contributions, the artworks have been divided in 24-pieces groups, each of which will be the object of a single auction.

Roughly, there will be two auctions per week; each auction will last for three days (Monday to Wednesday and Thursday to Saturday) and will shut at 22.00 PM (local hour) of the third day.

Purchasers will be able to view all 24 donated artworks composing the current auction in ArterieAste's Homepage (please note: if you only see the first 10 previews, please click on the arrow on the bottom to open and browse the entire gallery).

Clicking on each image, you’ll open the dedicated page where purchasers will find all the artwork’ specifics and where, starting from the entry price indicated by the authors, they will make their bids using the comments section below any image ( ” LASCIA UN COMMENTO ” area).

At the end of the auction, the artwork will go to the highest bidder.
Tenders submitted later than 22.00 PM will be rejected.
