What Are Your Rare Words?

You submit words and Mark Burrier draws them.

Don't be fooled by that surface simplicity. Our latest artistic collaboration is anything but. 

Mark is a world-renowned illustrator, cartoonist, and designer who lives here in Frederick. Rare Words is his collaborative drawing blog where readers submit words that become the creative starting point for Mark's original art. When Mark completes one of the user-inspired drawings, he posts it to the blog. (Additionally, 100 of Mark's favorite submissions have already been compiled in the book Rare Words: Volume 1.

But starting today, all submissions to Rare Words will be in contention for original art that will premiere Saturday, June 2 at the brewery. We'll give some sneak peaks along the way, but from now until Friday, May 18, all submissions on Rare Words will be kept secret until our show June 2. 

Submit your words on Rare Words. Then, come to the brewery Saturday, June 2 from 7 to 10 pm to find out if yours are chosen for the show. We'll have a ton of Mark's original art on display, along with live music by Old Indian and beer samples.
