zine show

Calling all artists and writers! Do you like Lance? Do you like Zines?! 

Welcome to our Lance-Centric Voltron Zine: Starboy!

What is Starboy?

Starboy is a Lance-Centric Zine dedicated to showing our blue son he’s not the seventh wheel of our hearts. (He’s not the seventh wheel. He’s the whole damn automobile ;) )

What is a Zine?

A zine is a collection of artwork and stories that will be published in physical and pdf format.

So How does This Work?

  • Our zine will consist of 30 participants: 15 artists and 15 writers.
  • Artists and writers will be paired together to create an illustrated short story.
  • The zine is Lance-centric– there can be ship content, but the ship should not be the main focus of the art or the story. It’s all about the boy in blue.
  • Authors and artists will be paired together by our ever-vigilant mod team. The artist will create their piece first, and then the writer will do what they do best about it.

Applications Open on the 9th!

Now that she’s finally healed, I wanted to share some more photos of the gorgeous tattoo I got last month. The design and text is from @musterni-illustrates Shitty Horoscope series, tattoo done by the amazing Susi (suspirialand on Instagram) at Armoured Soul Tattoos in Toronto. Amrit’s art is so gorgeous, I hope to get more of her designs inked on me someday soon!!! And if you’re in Toronto, I can’t recommend Susi enough, she’s done three of my pieces and she’s a fantastic artist. 

Applications for the as of yet untitled Dorohedoro Fanzine are now open!

We’re doing a submission callout for our zine and art show by asking one question “What’s it like being a punk of colour?”. 

From your lived experience, you can answer this in any 2-D format (or 3-D or video for the art show) a poem, a photo, a story, a painting, a sculpture, a scene report of the punx of colour in your town (even if it’s just you, maybe especially if it’s just you), whatever format is appropriate for your work.  

deadline is march 11th.

Let’s swing, baby!

Part of the Pandora Hearts gift exchange! This one’s for Dweebunny! Hope you have a lovely winter break! <3

June is cruising right along, and we’ve already gotten three great pieces for the Wayfaring Strangers zine! 

I had to show off a sneak peek of each! Left to right is @picnokinesis, @psychicpumpkinpi, and @professor-cinnamon-roll. Seriously you three, I love these pieces! <3 

For those still working: Don’t forget to refer to the rules page to check and double check your image specs, and don’t hesitate to ask any questions you might have! Soft deadline for final pieces is June 26!

What? @giveyourbacktome-zine is almost in our hands and I still didn’t show you a preview? I didn’t let you know I worked on seven pages? Well, now you know.

I can’t wait to be May 31st <3 Working on this zine was not easy (and if it was just me I would already be drawing again every single page), but honestly, it was the best experience I ever had. I signed up just before the applications close, and you have no idea how happy I am I found the courage to join such a great project.

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.

Hey, I rebooted my Tumblr blog. *(re)offers this viktuuri piece I made as sacrifice*



*inspired by @meyoco ‘s lovely art if you squint*

Fanzine of Mythicality is a R+L zine dedicated to showing the creativity and skills of this fandom! 

It’ll be made into a PDF and shared for free, mostly because I wanna avoid a good mythical lawsuit, so sketches and unfinished pieces are allowed! This is just meant to be a little fun thing for fans to enjoy making and reading later on!

Send an application over to [THIS LINK]! The applications will be closed on Monday 19th of June at 10pm BST! 

Just some rules:

  • SFW only! 
  • no ship art!
  • if youre a homophobe or transphobe dont enter, seriously. 
  • the piece you submit needs to be 300dpi and 2480 pixels by 3507 pixels at most, so make sure youre able to work with those!
  • traditional art is allowed!

reblogs are appreciated!
