INKBRUSHMOOD is now accepting artwork + art appreciation submissions!

We are now accepting brief articles about:

Japanese Art/Movements
Ukiyo-e and its subcategories (i.e. Bijin-ga, Shin hanga)
Japanese photography or graphic design

Please include in your post:
1) A high quality image of what you wish to appreciate. No format restrictions as of yet, but should ideally be JPG or PNG.

2) Caption the image as follows:

ARTIST NAME: Title (in italics), date (in parenthesis). You may include additional information such as canvas size and medium beneath the initial caption.

3) Brief description of stand-out elements of the image. What caught your attention? Point to that or to your favorite aspects of the image. Keep it simple. Off-beat references to Western art or other disciplines are great! Somewhere between 1-2 paragraphs would be ideal, but more is acceptable depending on content.

Are you a graphic artist influenced by Japanese art? If so, we look forward to receiving your work!

IKB is looking for:

  • Illustrations
  • Paintings
  • Photography
  • Graphic design experimentation

Formats of your choosing, but try to keep images high quality, JPG or PNG. Ideal post size for Tumblr is 4813px * 4692px. You don’t have to explain your artwork, but make sure to caption it:

YOUR NAME: Artwork Title (date of completion). Medium and canvas size (if applicable). Link to portfolio if you have it.

Online submissions only at the moment. Print submissions will open depending on need and reception of call. Submissions will be featured on as approved. Stand-out submissions will be featured in IKB VOL. 2.
