hi! what time are results coming out tomorrow?

They're coming out right now! Just need to make the post about it - sorry for the delay!

Application Period Over!

Thank you all for applying! There’s over 200 of you who have applied - I’m going to have my hands full picking 35 from that! Please keep an eye on your email come May 5th - I’ll be sending out both acceptance and rejection emails on that date as well as putting up the full participants list in a post here.

I want to make a note however - I apologize for not being able to answer questions during the application period. I got caught up with life situations that distracted me from doing so. I’ll see about taking the time to do so now that the application period is over.

The theme of the ninth Object Head Zine is “HISTORICAL FICTION”.

Whether you’re swashbuckling against pirates on the high seas, flirting with a shy noble across the royal court, or partying up at the busiest speakeasy - history awaits you in the new Object Head Zine! This topic is a little open ended: so long as your object head is historically accurate to the time period, it can be whatever you like!

This book will feature 25 people I’ve selected, plus 35 open slots available to the public for a total of 60 participants! This year’s zine is a PAID OPPORTUNITY of $100 USD per page (an increase from previous years!). Participants will be paid as soon as they complete their piece  (give or take a week for PayPal to transfer funds). There will be a pre-order sale to cover the costs of printing and shipping.

The 25 pre-selected participants are:

The guidelines are as follows:

  • Illustration-quality works in either digital or traditional mediums. Both colour and b/w acceptable; background required. *BG can be as simple as a pattern or colour block!
  • 6”x9”, 300 DPI illustrations with a 1/8th inch bleed (FINAL DIMENSIONS SHOULD BE 6.25” x 9.25”) Works must be in CMYK, and in a vertical format only.
  • At least one (1) work in progress picture should be sent in with your final illustration.
  • For consistency’s sake, keep faces to a minimum (You can have eye(s) or you can have mouth(s) but don’t have both in a humanoid arrangement.)
  • Original characters only (yours or your friends’).
  • You can include humans or other creatures, as long as there’s a 1:1   object head to non-object head/human ratio.
  • This book is for all ages. PG-13 content at the most! Cartoon violence and blood are acceptable, but realistic gore is NOT. Use your common sense. If you’re unsure, run the idea by me.
  • Depictions of war, fighting, and/or violence are acceptable but please be aware of the usage of symbols in your work. Do not have any usage of hate symbols, associated flags, slogans, greetings, or uniforms. Use your common sense. Any depictions of this will be given a one time warning to remove the offending part of piece. Any refusal or argument against this will remove you from the zine completely.
  • Do not have the Red Cross, the Red Crystal or the Red Crescent symbol in your piece. Usage of this symbol is legislated by the Geneva Conventions Act, the Trade Marks Act and the Canadian Red Cross Society Act. Any usage of this symbol will be asked to be edited to remove it.
  • Please put in the proper research when illustrating your historical period, especially if you’re drawing from a culture that isn’t your own. Mistakes are inevitable, even when working within our own cultures and while 100% accuracy isn’t necessary or required, we want to be respectful to the cultures we’re depicting.
  • Completed illustrations must be sent as a flattened psd or tiff file

There  are only 10 slots for comics available due to page count space so if  you apply for a comic space, and you are selected, you may not be picked  for comics but instead illustration!

If you have any questions  about the zine, feel free to send an email to  objectheadzine(@)hotmail(.)com. I’ll do my best to reply promptly. If  you haven’t received a response from me, please feel free to send it  again. There are a few essential questions answered over at the FAQ. There is also a twitter account for the zine for frequent updates and WIPs of the book!

Applications are due May 2nd, 2022, 11:59 PM, PST.

Anonymous asked:

Will those who are not chosen know? Or is there a certain time like "if we don't get back to you within this time- it's safe to assume you will not be hired" etc etc

I will be sending out both acceptance and rejection emails so everyone should know whether or not they've been chosen on May 5th. If you don't get a response on the 5th, feel free to send an email to the zine email asking about the result.

as long as you give me a warning ahead of time, they're allowed!

The theme of the ninth Object Head Zine is “HISTORICAL FICTION”.

Illustration by @theholeyness

Whether you’re swashbuckling against pirates on the high seas, flirting with a shy noble across the royal court, or partying up at the busiest speakeasy - history awaits you in the new Object Head Zine! This topic is a little open ended: so long as your object head is historically accurate to the time period, it can be whatever you like!

This book will feature 25 people I’ve selected, plus 35 open slots available to the public for a total of 60 participants! This year’s zine is a PAID OPPORTUNITY of $100 USD per page (an increase from previous years!). Participants will be paid as soon as they complete their piece  (give or take a week for PayPal to transfer funds). There will be a pre-order sale to cover the costs of printing and shipping.

The 25 pre-selected participants are:

The guidelines are as follows:

  • Illustration-quality works in either digital or traditional mediums. Both colour and b/w acceptable; background required. *BG can be as simple as a pattern or colour block!
  • 6”x9”, 300 DPI illustrations with a 1/8th inch bleed (FINAL DIMENSIONS SHOULD BE 6.25” x 9.25”) Works must be in CMYK, and in a vertical format only.
  • At least one (1) work in progress picture should be sent in with your final illustration.
  • For consistency’s sake, keep faces to a minimum (You can have eye(s) or you can have mouth(s) but don’t have both in a humanoid arrangement.)
  • Original characters only (yours or your friends’).
  • You can include humans or other creatures, as long as there’s a 1:1   object head to non-object head/human ratio.
  • This book is for all ages. PG-13 content at the most! Cartoon violence and blood are acceptable, but realistic gore is NOT. Use your common sense. If you’re unsure, run the idea by me.
  • Depictions of war, fighting, and/or violence are acceptable but please be aware of the usage of symbols in your work. Do not have any usage of hate symbols, associated flags, slogans, greetings, or uniforms. Use your common sense. Any depictions of this will be given a one time warning to remove the offending part of piece. Any refusal or argument against this will remove you from the zine completely.
  • Do not have the Red Cross, the Red Crystal or the Red Crescent symbol in your piece. Usage of this symbol is legislated by the Geneva Conventions Act, the Trade Marks Act and the Canadian Red Cross Society Act. Any usage of this symbol will be asked to be edited to remove it.
  • Please put in the proper research when illustrating your historical period, especially if you’re drawing from a culture that isn’t your own. Mistakes are inevitable, even when working within our own cultures and while 100% accuracy isn’t necessary or required, we want to be respectful to the cultures we’re depicting.
