Happy birthday Bleaq! I can’t believe it’s been two years already since Bleaq officially launched! We’re 335 articles further down the road now, and I’m so excited about all the lovely and talented people I met through this website. Last year I completely forgot to celebrate Bleaq’s birthday, so I thought this year I had to think of something special! And what better way than to share it with you guys? :)
I created a small reader survey to find out what you think of Bleaq, so I can make the blog even better. I know surveys can be a bit dull, that’s why I have something in store for you! If you leave your e-mail address at the end of the survey you have a chance to win an amazing art book, ‘The Book of Skulls’ by Faye Dowling. It’s one of my personal favorites! The survey contains just a few questions, it will take about five minutes to answer the questions.
About the prize
The skull is one of the most recognizable symbols of today’s contemporary visual culture. Since its 1970 s renaissance in the iconic album designs of bands such as the Grateful Dead, the skull has found its way into the visual vocabulary of urban life, adorning T-Shirts, badges and rock memorabilia as the ultimate symbol of anarchy and rebellion. Repurposed and recast by artists, illustrators and designers, it has become one of the most iconic cultural symbols of our time. In response to this cultural phenomenon, The Book of Skulls presents a cool visual guide to the skull, charting its rebirth through music and street fashion to become today s ultimate anti-establishment icon. From Black Sabbath to Cypress Hill, skater punk graffiti to Gothic tattoos, from high-couture to Hello Kitty and Dali to Damien Hirst, this book is the ultimate collection of cool and iconic skull motifs. Drawing together artwork from music, fashion, street art and graphic design The Book of Skulls is a celebration of one of today s most iconic cultural symbols.
You can see a preview of the book on Amazon. Small side note: unfortunately I ate the cupcake, so that won’t be included with the prize ;)
Thank you so much for reading Bleaq the last two years, I’ll hope you stick around for the next two (or three, five, ten…) :) And thanks a lot for completing the survey, I’m curious to hear your thoughts on Bleaq! If there’s anything else you’d like to add feel free to leave a comment or get in touch with me.
Have a lovely Sunday!
