Anyone Interested in Doing the August Cover Art for ComixTalk?

I've got a large number of "how-to" type books to review and so I'm going to try and make the theme of August about tutorials and tips.  I don't have a cover artist lined up for August, however and in the spirit of doing something different I'm going to open it up to submissions.  Here's the plan -- if you're interested in doing the cover for ComixTalk for August (that's the 1000 x 400 image that sits at the top of the site) submit a quick sketch (and any explanatory notes) of your idea by the end of July 21st.  I'll pick one idea for the artist to do a final version for the site.  Submit your sketches to xerexes AT gmail DOT com and include any links to work you've done online.

There's no pay for cover art, however, you retain the copyright (you do have to give me a non-exclusive license to display it online), get your name and linkage under the cover for the month and if you're interested we'll run a free left-hand column ad for you.

I sent in a sketch on Friday.  Did you get it?

Yep - got it.  Probably not going to look at anything closely until the deadline though.

I run this place! Tip the piano player on the way out.

Hope you don't mind  a joint submission: I came up with the concept and a friend drew the art. Only proper I should give it a go since the Create a Comic Project is one big tutorial in community service form.

Is there a certain theme for that month's magazine that cover art submissions should reflect?

Local Heroes (http://www.localheroes.us): Super-powered all-ages fun | Playtime Projects (http://www.playtimeprojects.com): A dysfunctional children's show (strong language)

Well, 3X does say it's going to be about tutorial & tips, though I can understand if that concept is a bit too nebulous for illustration.  (A classroom setting, maybe?)

Sure! I'll work on a sketch soon!

Caught me in a good mood and on the lighter side of my work... :)

I'd always be up for something like that... I'll send you a sketch when I'm not at work.
