Art on USA TODAY and C-NET

“ARMCHAIR REVOLUTIONARIES” is a site that has just launched, and they are using my artwork as part of the big media blitz they are rolling out, which means in the last 24 hours my art have been posted on USA and C-NET.
This is a “social crowdsourcing project”, meaning that, in the same way that people play the Farmville game on Facebook, people can do the same here but raise awareness of scientific and social causes. They more work they do, the more prominent their mini-site within ARM-REV’s site is featured. As they accumulate more “credits”, they can “rent” artwork like mine to trick out their site area, and draw more attention to it. I still own all the rights to the artwork, and every place it’s used, it’s hotlinked back to my site. And I get paid when my art gets used.
This will be interesting to see how this progresses. The site is backed by a ton of Hollywood bigwigs, so it’s going to be interesting to see where this leads to as far as people seeing my work. Will it translate to paying gigs? We’ll see…
Very weird, but very nice.
