If you’re interested in a rose-coloured campus life, sign up with us!

Applications for the Tatami Galaxy fanzine are open from today, March 20th to April 2nd 11:59 PM PST. 31 artists will be selected for this zine and will receive a copy of the book once completed. General sales of the book will be available online approximately July/August via a pre-order system for a limited time and will go towards the single-run printing and shipping of the books. Excess money after all costs will be split amongst the artists.

Watching the series is highly recommended before applying for the zine. This show involves a lot of interconnected threads of relationships and emphasizes repetition in its themes that will undoubtedly help you create an excellent piece. You can find the full series on the Funimation site with an account or otherwise. 

The guidelines are as follows:

  • Illustration-quality works in either digital or traditional mediums. Both colour and b/w acceptable; background required.
  • 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, a template will be provided via email if you are selected. Works will be in a vertical format only.
  • This book is for all ages. PG-13 content at the most! The show presents mature themes by way of metaphor but use your common sense and try not to be explicit with your piece. If you’re unsure, run the idea by me.
  • Completed illustrations/comics must be sent as a flattened psd or tiff file.

To apply, please submit:

  • Examples of your work (art blog/tag, homepage, whatever)
  • The name you want me to credit you under  
  • The website you want linked on your credits page
  • (Optional) The email you want displayed on your credit page

Send this information and/or if you have any questions to potentialfa(@)hotmail(.)com with the subject “Tatami Galaxy Application”. I’ll do my best to reply promptly. If you haven’t received a response from me regarding your application in a few days, please send it again.

Again, applications end on APRIL 2ND, 2017, 11:59 PM, PST.
