We will be making shirts through a partnership with BabyWit.com, so please be aware that your piece may be used on t-shirts (let us know if you would rather not have your art on shirts.) Fifty percent of the profit of these shirts will also go to Pose2â€™s programs.
To hype up the release of the East Coast book we are doing a satellite show with the legendary Leno Rainbow. We are looking for big black and white line-art pieces for the Color Me Bad exhibit thatâ€™s happening the month of April in Portland, OR and New Brunswick, NJ. The pieces will be put up as an interactive exhibit based on Leonâ€™s show and theyâ€™ll be colored in by the attendees. These should be no bigger than 48â€ square and be strictly black and white line art. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP if you are into it; Leon can be contacted at email@example.com. This summer this series of books will be promoted at shows nationwide.
Please forward this to anyone might be interested; weâ€™re doing the East Coast book now, but the West Coast one will start up pretty soon too. Our ideal is to have the books 50% female, so please send this submission letter to any female who paints. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 732-546-2005 with any questions.

About the Programs:
â€œGraffiti: The Art Formâ€ originated from Pose 2â€™s dedication to educating new writers. Through discussions, videos, slide presentations, books and daily â€˜studioâ€™ time at the Hawthorne Cultural Center in South Philly, students aged 10-110 learn about the basic foundation and history of graffiti. Pose 2, Base, Sew and Psy work together to give students alternative perspectives; all funding generated is used for paint, bringing in visiting instructors and helping out the Hawthorne Cultural Center. The B-Boy BBQ, starting in Philly and expanding this year, is a family event informed by the block parties that gave birth to Hip Hop. Drawing writers, MCâ€™s, DJâ€™s and b-boys from miles, states and nations away, the B-Boy BBQ fosters a local, national and global community. For more info on these, check out www.pose2.com and www.bboy-bbq.com.
