A Little Light is a Miraculous Ladybug charity zine to benefit those affected by Hurricane Matthew. The zine will be a pay-what-you-can digital download that will include art, fanfics, and cosplay. The zine’s motif is light and will be themed for the Winter Holidays (Christmas, Hanukah, general winter, etc.).
The medic-themed TF Zine submission by @dailydurian and I! Writing and colors by me (except the theme song… Albie did that lol), drawn and lettered by Albie! Starring Flatline, Omega Spreem, and Quickmix. We’re very excited to share it with you! We learned a lot during the creative process. Thank you very much for having us in the zine! Hope you all enjoy \^_^/
In the spirit of inclusiveness and community, the aim of the Quiznak Chronicle is to gather all fan events for the Voltron fandom in one place so that people can keep up to date on what is going on and what is coming up soon. Whether you’re looking for character/ship weeks, zines, exchanges, big bangs or something else, it’s all here!
**I try my best to keep the information up to date, but if you see I’m missing an event don’t hesitate to bring it to my attention!
For issue two of stars aligned, we are pleased to announce that we will (again) utilize an open submission process and have a new predetermined theme.
To note, our results were (surprisingly!) 50/50 between open submissions and doing an application form, and after having thoroughly discussed the pros and cons of both, we decided that due to the big success with the way we ran our first issue, we will continue to use the former method.
That being said, we will have our policies and submission guidelines posted and finalized on the night of February 14, but to briefly explain, having an open submission process with a predetermined theme means we will provide a general theme(s) for creators to work with, and from February 15 through May 15, we will be accepting complete works of art, writing, or multimedia submissions for consideration for acceptance.
Again, we don’t have all the policies and guidelines published or updated, but as always, if you have any questions or have any suggestions for themes, feel free to send us an ask!
Hi, do you have recommendations on artist books? For illustrators?
Anon, it honestly depends on your taste and what you’re looking for. Personally, I am a slut for artbooks, but that includes fine art, animation, graphic, fashion, literally anything. Everything that is art-related, I want.
That being said, I can give you a list of books that I own or have read that do have something to do with illustration. Not just artbooks or artist books, but any books. But you must keep in mind that these are books I like for various reasons and whether they would help you for anything, I have no idea, but they are all amazing books and I wholeheartedly recommend you get your hands on them if you can. So…
