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.
