Lomo Art: Draw your own cameras!

2013-02-25 39

Dalí, Picasso, Goya… and you! Get inspired by the Lomographic muses, and give free rein to the artistic genie that’s hiding inside of you. Keep reading if you want to know what we are taking about, and start creating!!

Colour pencils, charcoal, markers, watercolours, collages, oil on canvas, or just a pen! Choose your fave technique and draw your fave cameras, in a 100% analogue way, scan your drawing and send it to our competition. We want to see the coolest illustrations of your Lomographic jewels!

For this competition, we have a very a special judge, the Basilian Madrid-based illustrator Gabriel da Silva. An illustrator from head to toe in whose drawings cameras sometimes slip. If you want to get to know him better, have a look at his answers to our Lomographic Questionnaire.

Amazing illustration with analogue camera by Gabriel da Silva.

Gabriel will be in charge of choosing the winner. The First Price will win a La Sardina DIY, the Second Price will receive 10 Piggy Points and the Third one, 5 Piggies. And all of them will be given a special prize on their LomoHomes.

    This sounds so cool! I just have a question about the first rule, it's a little unclear...are we allowed to incorporate actual analogue pictures in our submissions?

    Hello @awkward-otter: only analogue illustrations allowed, free technique. You can scan your drawing or take a photo of it to submit it (photo of the illustration could be analogue or digital).

    @lomographyembassyspain - The contest rules say "digital retouching is either allowed". That is confusing. Maybe you should clearly state that digital techniques and digital retouching are NOT allowed. I read the spanish version of this page and there it clearly says you cannot use digital, only for taking the picture of your ANALOGUE art work. Great contest BTW!

    great submissions so far!
    i had this idea of something i want to have as a tattoo but i really can´t show here unless i have it and i think this will take time.

    oh cool!! this is perfect for me, i have made a few drawings with cameras :)
    but is it allowed to submit photos where there are also other things than the camera itself? or is it only allowed to submit drawings of a camera.

  20. lomographyembassyspain
    lomographyembassyspain ·

    Hello @guinastrapazi. At least there is one analogue camera in your illustration it's Ok! You can draw more things around :).
