Ok my gf and i were walking home from our school and in the field next to the football stadium the grass was basically dead and brown except there were little perfect circular targets of perfectly healthy grass and see in the last picture where the circle is cut off perfectly before the parking lot??? Aliens i swear!!!!!!!
The theme of the third Object Head Zine is “SPOOKY”.
This year’s topic is a little more flexible - participants may draw
either spooky-themed object heads, or place object heads in a spooky
situation! It can be either scary or cutesy or even a mix of both! You
may include monsters, but please keep object heads the focus of your
This book will feature 25 people I’ve selected, plus 25 open slots available to the public. This year’s zine is a PAID OPPORTUNITY of $100 CAN (approx. $80 USD) per page.
A Kickstarter launched after the drawing period completion and
compilation (around late Feb, 2017) will provide payment, plus cover the
cost of printing and shipping for the books’ single run print and sale!
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, a template will be provided via email if you are selected. Works will be in a vertical format only.
10 slots are open for a 1-4 page comic. A separate portfolio of your comic works must be sent in for consideration.
At least one (1) work in progress picture should be sent in with your final illustration/comic.
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 non-spooky object heads, as long as
there’s a 1:1 spooky object head to non-spooky 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.
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, etc). If you wish to submit a comic, please provide examples of your comic work as well. Object heads are not required in your portfolio but always welcome.
The name you want to be credited under
The website you want linked on the credits page
The email you want displayed on the credits page (optional)
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!
