Some AJ fixes/updates...

Hey guys!

Sorry, been off the grid for a couple of weeks.

I recently changed hosting servers, hence that AJ's topic hasn't been showing up for the past couple of weeks - we'll have to recycle the topics that were missed (Week 238: Elijah Wood and Week 239: Captain America). So, sorry about that.

Along with fixing the topic, AJ looks slightly different - so, no the page isn't broken, just doing some house cleaning, removing ads, improving load time, etc.

Anyways, take care!

Welcome to Week 200!!!

Hey all:

Art Jumble is four years old!

So enjoy this week of posting your best pieces! We've got some exciting new things in the works for the Art Jumble Blog to be released in the next couple of weeks:
  • A new site design (web and smart phone friendly)
  • Monthly competitions (more details soon)
  • Monthly newsletters
  • Advertising with Art Jumble
  • And other little improvements... 
Comic Jumble (found in the top banner), will be taken down soon for the time being. It's a great idea, but needs to be rethought - so enjoy that while it's up.

Just a couple of stats from the blog:
  • We've gotten over 270,700 visits from 12,860 cities around the world
  • Most traffic comes from Arizona, New york, Vancouver, Madrid, Toronto, etc.  
  • Most of our referring traffic comes from Google images because Google owns Blogger. All images that get posted to Art Jumble will more than likely show up as Google image searches when people look for things. See for yourself, you might find one or two of your own posted images:
  • Over 1,000 people subscribe to our RSS feed:
Looking forward to another four years, take care and have fun guys!

AJ server move...

My apologies... again.

We had to move servers this time - the Topic Submit and the Join AJ forms at the top of the page have been down. They are now up and running on our new server, yay!

So, if you entered any info (or tried to enter) into these form fields, please re-enter your topic or to join up, if so inclined.

Thanks all,

Mark G.

Hey all prospective AJ members!

My apologies...

For a couple of weeks now, the "Join AJ" form at the top of the page has been broken - fail! We have been getting your requests but they would come through blank.

It's now fixed!

Please re-enter your submission to join up, if so inclined - thanks all,

Mark G.

Phoenix Comicon 2009

This show was great and looked a lot like Comic Con 2008. Overall the crowd that attended was very unusual as in many con's. It was a great time though - moving product and all.

Tons of quality stuff!

Charlie acting goofy, ha.

Happy Birthday Art Jumble! (two years)

Art Jumble has almost 100,000 hits to date, averages 5,100 hits a month, with over 214,662 page views, viewed in 5,029 cities around the world!

All this wouldn't have been possible with out YOU (the member, the viewer, the person that does a random Google search that pertains to a past AJ topic). To think it all started with less than a dozen people has grown to 253 members from around the world and counting.

So thanks all!

See where you're at on the map...

Comic-Con 2008 (Art Jumble Booth)

San Diego Comic-con was a blast! Below is a video and some pictures taken during the duration of the 4 day event. We sold artist prints, sketchbooks and only 70 CAKE V1 books, we think it was due to crappy placement of the booth, maybe next year we'll be in a better section. Either way it as super fun, so plan next year to go! Enjoy the visuals...

Red Hot Robot pictures (7-11-08 - Art Jumble Show)

It's been a month, but better late then never to post these pictures. We hung pieces on the walls for sale, sold 30 books (but we signed like 50 total, people brought books to be signed) and sold various prints - but most of all we had fun. Enjoy!

Around 7:30-9pm it was busy like the two photos show above.

Greg, Mark, Jim and Rory ready to sell and sign & sketch some CAKE.

CAKE @ San Diego Comic-Con!

The 2008 San Diego Comic-Con is here (July 23-26). These are very exciting times for anyone who's been to one; it's the mother of all Comic-Con's. If you haven't been to one, you're totally missing out - so go, before it's too late (it gets more expensive the longer you wait with hotel stays and whatnots).

If you are going, stop by the Art Jumble exhibitor table A9 to pick up CAKE, Volume One (for the special Comic-Con price of $10) and meet some of the artists involved in the making of the anthology. We'll have tons of individual artist prints for sale too!

If anything, come by and say hi - see you there! Anyone else have a booth? Anyone going? Please reply to this post if you do/are going...

AJ Art Show pictures (12-7-07)

We had a great turnout despite the rainy evening (raining in Arizona, go figure). Framed pieces and prints were sold - overall very positive feedback from everyone, artists included. All framed pieces will remain in the gallery for the next First Friday art walk in January. Even newer pieces will be up by then too.

Enjoy the pictures – there’s still more to come!

Art Jumble on MySpace...

Hello fellow Jumbler's!

This is just an FYI for all you MySpace users out there.

Art Jumble's MySpace account was recently hacked and deleted. Since then, the account has been reopened - so we currently have no friends to update about special upcoming events :'(

So if you used to be a friend of the Art Jumble Blog on MySpace, click the MySpace logo on the header of this page and Add a Friend. Please also be aware of the Facebook logo to the right of it, Facebook is like MySpace but BETTER! It has a lot less garbage ads and is very cool.

If this happens again (the MySpace account delete) for whatever reason, we'll have to keep it closed - because apparently people have a lot of time on their hands, lol.

See ya.
