Judging by the surge of submissions it seems as if most of you have heard Alex’s request and have started submitting your fan art, but if you didn’t know, Alex has requested that fans submit their artwork here at alex-lambert.com. Every so often (if he remembers :wink: ), Alex will pick his very favorite and post it as his Twitter profile picture!!

TrueAlexLambert: Ok this may sound crazy if you’re not an artist but! I think people should make Art and send it in for me to post as my profile picture!!!
TrueAlexLambert: My Name writin or like a design that would be my style :)
TrueAlexLambert: Edit pictures or whatever! But try to find some new ones;)
TrueAlexLambert: Post it on Alex-Lambert.com on the link fan art! Ayyyyyy!

P.S. Even if you don’t submit something, check out the Fan Art gallery anyways…the art is REALLY good. Here’s a small sample. Nice job folks!

And this technically isn’t “fan art”, but it sure is kick ass!! Fellow Alex fans have dropped a few hints to promote Alex and the site! You guys rock!! I know Katrina, Cecily, Lauren, and a few others have done something similar, so if you decide to take part and spread the Alex love be sure to snap a shot!

Upload your photos of creative ways to promote Alex to the “Guerrilla Promotions” gallery on the Fan Art page!

  1. yep I definitely have done this!

  2. Cecily’s being modest – we know you were the instigator!! Best Buy must love you haha.

    In reply to Diane in previous thread – The artwork contest WAS a great idea, but we had nothing to do with it! Like you said, guess he’s got a good marketing head on his shoulders :wink: But we’re very glad that the fan art section is getting some love :) Keep ‘em coming!

  3. I wasn’t going to let Cecily go uncredited… It was her idea and she has done it a few times already. The only thing I can take credit for was taking the picture for proof. I’d do anything for Alex, just like many of the great fans on this site. I am going to be looking for other things I can do to help promote Alex though. Any ideas? Let me know! I’m off on Sunday and planning on doing something to promote him. :)

  4. Cecily Gonzalez: yep I definitely have done this!  (Reply)

    And it was a GREAT idea! More people need to do it! :biggrin:

  5. Ha ha, I made flyers, with the picture that Alex LOVES…LOL (I guess I gotta chage it)….:(

  6. We should also put his music vid on the laptops in another window or tab! and @LindaW I LOVE that pic! he just doesn’t like his hair in it.. but I do! :)

  7. My pic is coming.

    Off topic, but I don’t know where else to put it. I heard y’all had a twitter session with Alex which I naturally missed. UGH! Anyway, tell all! Questions and answers please. It’s been so long since we’ve had any real news.

  8. On this fake facebook … most of these unsuspecting fans actually think these terrible comments from FAKE Alex are real, from looking at their comments…Yikes!!! How can 3,300 people be fooled for so long? Are they sadistic Alex fans? What’s the deal there? :shocked:

  9. Cecily Gonzalez: We should also put his music vid on the laptops in another window or tab! and @LindaW I LOVE that pic! he just doesn’t like his hair in it.. but I do! :)  

    I changed it anyway lol

    I sent a email to abuse@facebook.com.. dont know if it will do any good…..

  11. LindaW:

    or abuse@fb.com

  12. I agree that we must continue to take action against that phoney FB site. It’s really pissing me off.

    On the same topic, I found this website called lastfm.com where they claimed to have Alex Lambert photos and music. They didn’t actually have any of his music to play. What they did have were links to purchase his songs on Amazon. Am I wrong in thinking that Alex did not place them there? If someone is selling his music, that’s illegal. He gave us all permission to download what’s on this site for FREE, but no one has the right to be selling his songs. I’m going to investigate further. I should be able to tell if it’s real or some jerkoff trying to make $$ off Alex.

    This shit’s getting out of control.

    Still waiting to hear the Q&A report from the twitter session.

    One more question: Can we still send stuff to Alex thru the 19E address that we used before? I’m assuming yes, but want to be absolutely positive that he gets what I send.

    • @Janet Last.fm is an established music streaming site… kinda like internet radio. Alex having his Mp3s there is a good thing at this point – his songs may come up automatically when people are listening to similar music, thus giving him more exposure. Have you checked the links to Amazon? They probably don’t actually lead to Alex stuff – these type of affiliate ads just put a link to the store with the name of whatever you’re listening to, assuming it’s going to be there. Also for the record he did not give us explicit permission… though I suppose since he’s telling people to come here to download stuff when they’re looking for his songs, he’s OK with it ;)
      Anyway, these mp3s are all over the web at all kinds of mp3 downloading sites… but since they will never be commercially available, at this point that’s a good thing… more exposure. Save the battle call for when the album comes out and people start distributing it illegally, which they will do…

      ETA Janet I can’t find the link you’re talking about? Anyway, if they are selling Alex ringtones, it is a site not affiliated with last.fm, just an advertiser, and definitely not legit. But there is also no action we can take to shut them down. Not even the major labels are capable of shutting these people down – that’s why they’re all in trouble haha.

  13. Wow! The fan art is looking great! I have to finish mine, but maybe not today. Too sick.

    Here’s the link to last fm where they’re selling Alex ringtones:
    @lastfm http://t.co/3NY3Wxh

    There’s a button down and to the left for Alex Lambert music, which they don’t have, but somewhere it lead me to Amazon.

    PLEASE, NO ONE BUY ANY RINGTONES UNTIL WE KNOW IF THIS SITE IS SELLING THIS LEGALLY. I’m highly skeptical.

    Alex, please let us know so we can take action to shut them down.

  14. Apparently I am not keeping up here. Can someone tell me how I can determine which Facebook site is the phony one.

  15. Thank you Kassandra for the info.

  16. Dang! Thought the fake page was down…the link you gave Kass says page not found for me, but if you go into fb and search hands that hurt, it does still come up… :cwy:

  17. Thanks for the info Kass. I’m not thinking straight today; damn flu However, I’m a believer that anything can be accomplished if enough people band together. At first, I had the same thought you did that people downloading Alex’s mp3s was actually a good thing, more exposure, etc. And, you were right — as usual — :). The link on the site just brings up one ADAM Lambert mp3 to buy and download. So, it’s just as you said. The ringtone thing bothers me slightly because it’s just an out and out ripoff. Anyone can make their own ringtones. It’s easy enough to do. But, selling someone else’s music without their permission just grinds my gears.

    But, I’ll take your advice and save my energy for when it’s really needed. After all, I doubt anyone has gotten rich off Alex ringtones when people can just do it themselves.

    Still waiting to hear what Alex had to say at the twitter session. Nothing exciting to talk about? lol. Oh, well, someday I’ll hit it at the right time.

    • @Janet Flu sucks!!! Nothing too exciting yesterday, but going back through today’s, to some girl who asked when his cd would be out he said “Umm hopefully within this next couple of months”. More confirmation!

  18. Oh Kass. I didn’t see that. Thanks.

  19. Kassandra: @Janet Flu sucks!!! Nothing too exciting yesterday, but going back through today’s, to some girl who asked when his cd would be out he said “Umm hopefully within this next couple of months”. More confirmation!  

    Well I guess February is out. Can I change my date to late March, early April?? :lol:

    No choice but to hang on a little longer. :cwy:

    • Within next couple of months… Could be within Jan/Feb. Hence by end of Feb?

      Fake Alex is now apologizing: “Sorry everyone, i don’t usually talk like this. Please forgive me, i’ve been going through a lot lately.”

      Prior comments about the page being fake have all been deleted, though there are some new ones up.

      What is this person’s DEAL!?!?! Is it really some 14 year old girl like Denise and JB were saying? Ugh people are weird.

  20. @Kass – You are sleeping, I’m sure, as I write this, but some of my fb comments have not been deleted and I added another one tonight.

    • OMG what is with that person on FB? If you really need do help, do it under your own name – there’s no excuse if you’re doing it to damage someone else’s reputation! Good job guys.
      See you all had ANOTHER Twitter party yesterday haha. Lucky :P

  21. NO Facebook news…wow I doubt she’ll ever comment again. Glad y’all blasted her. Truly she does have problems!

    I did want to share some good news. Alex tweeted that the collaborators on “Learnin’ From You” from the “classic” set list were Jason Reeves and Jordan Lawhead. Now I really can’t wait to hear that one. :w00t:

  22. Lauren: NO Facebook news…wow I doubt she’ll ever comment again. Glad y’all blasted her. Truly she does have problems!I did want to share some good news. Alex tweeted that the collaborators on “Learnin’ From You” from the “classic” set list were Jason Reeves and Jordan Lawhead. Now I really can’t wait to hear that one.   

    I saw that Lauren, Great job getting that info.

    • Hey I think Idol must’ve just aired in Denmark… TONS of visits from Denmark all at once in the last few hours. Hello Denmark!!

  23. Kassandra: Hey I think Idol must’ve just aired in Denmark… TONS of visits from Denmark all at once in the last few hours. Hello Denmark!!  

    Oh goody! A bunch of new Alex Addicts. HI there, Denmark!!

  24. Kassandra: Hey I think Idol must’ve just aired in Denmark… TONS of visits from Denmark all at once in the last few hours. Hello Denmark!!  

    Wow, Kass! Do you mean last year’s Idol would only just now be airing in Denmark? That’s crazy-late!

  25. No It’s American Idol rewind! haha someone tweeted Alex saying that. and she’s from Denmark

  26. Cecily Gonzalez: No It’s American Idol rewind! haha someone tweeted Alex saying that. and she’s from Denmark  

    Got it!

  27. We LOVE Denmark!!! :heart:

  28. I wasn’t around for a few days and just seeing this. A lot more fan arts contributions for the fan art section now. That’s good to see. :) I’ve made 4 wallpapers and a drawing for him already – that’s more than I have done for anyone.

    That’s weird someone was impersonating him on facebook. Who does crap like that and then apologize that they did it because they were going through stuff. Anyway, glad its taken care of.

    So he has a new song “Learnin’ From You” – that’s good. Hope we get to hear them all and he gets to make his CD soon.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
