Nothing runs like a Deere. This is not your father’s Oldsmobile. Think Different. You ever wonder if the copywriters who wrote those lines wrote anything else… more personal?
Many years ago I wanted to create an anthology of poetry and prose for copywriters by copywriters. I knew my peers were working on projects other than advertising. I also knew how hard it was getting work published. I figured a “copywriter’s anthology” would give us all a place to go. As originally conceived, it required a publisher in order to move forward, someone to produce the book in which our poems and stories would appear -a tough sell.
Much has changed in ten years. The Internet presents new opportunity for an anthology or gallery.
What hasn’t changed is my belief that creative people will get a kick out of seeing personal work by their peers as well as contributing their own, be it prose, poetry, painting or photography.
Welcome to The Rogue’s Gallery! “What we make we make when we’re not making ads”
The Rogue’s Gallery is not a commercial gallery. Nor is it a beauty contest. The Rogue’s Gallery is a place where creative advertising people can show their work and appreciate the work of their peers.
The Rogue’s Gallery needs your paintings, poetry, fiction and photography. If it means something to you it will mean something to us. Don’t be shy! Who knows? Maybe a publisher will fall in love with your prose. Or your oils will smite a patron of the arts. Life is full of surprises.
