This is pretty old news but for those of you who don’t know, Platinum Studios is seeking two individuals who might be interested in an internship at their LA headquarters. Hours and days are flexible but it must be on a weekday as the office is not open on weekends. It’s an unpaid internship but it is an opportunity to gain some experience and network with other people. More information can be found at the link above.
Meanwhile sign-ups for the DrunkDuck Wizard World Texas Artist Alley is still open but it’s now "standing room only." The reserved tables are now at their maximum capacity of four per table so while sign-ups are still welcomed, there’s no guaranteed table at this point. However DrunkDuck artists are pretty nice and in the past people have shared tables and traded spaces.
I was visiting my usual round of forums when I stumbled upon a thread about an upcoming magazine called Comix Magazine. The name should be self-explainatory as to what this magazine is about.

Only three more days left before voting closes for the winner of this year’s Comic Book Challenge! The top three finalists were revealed earlier this month and they were: Josiah Grahn’s Banana Barry, Shawn Granger’s Grey Shades, and Jorge Vega’s Gunplay.
The winner of this year’s Comic Book Challenge will be announced on August 28th and will be published by Platinum Studios. The winner will also receive a copy of Toon Boom Solo, Comic Book Creator Super Pack, and an Intuos3 6×11 tablet. The winning entry will also debut at a Wizard World Tour event in 2008.
Additional information about prizes and timeline can be found at Platinum Studios’ Comic Book Challenge website.
San Diego ComicCon may have come and gone but voting for Platiunum Studio’s 2007 Comic Book Challenge is still underway! Voters can go to their website to view the entries, watch the contestants’ pitches, and then pick their own favourites. The narrowing of the 10 will end on August 12th and from there, another public vote will be held to determine who the winner will be.
The winner of the Comic Book Challenge will be formally announced in late August and will have their pitch published and premiered at a Wizard World convention in 2008. The top 50 contestants will also receive prizes such as wacom tablets and comic software.
Skoolmunkee recently interviewed Tyrapendragon, creator of Slugs of Mystery and the organizer of the DrunkDuck community project, Fusion. Continue Reading

Every so often, someone goes into the DrunkDuck Tips and Tricks forum and share some of their own art tricks with the community. It's a really kind thing to do since that kind of contribution takes time and time is a valuable resource.
So I figure, why not share the love? Read on for some tips and tricks from various artists!
Carly Mizzou is now taking sign-ups for Wizard World Chicago for DrunkDuck members. Like the previous two Wizard World gatherings, space will be broken up based on the number of users interested.
She also released the list of DrunkDuck participants for Wizard World Philadelphia. This year DrunkDuck/Platinum Studios will also be hosting a panel and a competition during the convention.
Platinum Dan recently announced that unlike last year's Comic Book Challenge, this year's top 50 entrants will all receive a prize in addition to the $595 that will be given to help with the traveling expenses. Prizes include comic software and Wacom tablets.
More information can be found here but below are the prizes: Continue Reading
Yesterday DrunkDuck released a new feature for the site: genre pages. The feature is still not fully complete as not all the genres are represented yet but so far users can view the genre pages for horror and manga webcomics.
This is a bit of old news but interviews with DrunkDuck creators have been posted in the forums for quite some time by administrator Skoolmunkee. The latest one was with KC Green of Rumblo.com but previous interviewees also include Hawk of Culture Shock and Carrollhach of Clench and Cheese.
Speaking of the talented KC Green, he released a video of his creative process a while back. It's done in a very KC Green-style so it's hilarious to watch.
