I just got the first official finished comic by the illustrious Sam Spina, as usual. He's a punctual dude. I heard from his girlfriend, Samantha, that he was laughing out loud to himself as he drew this comic. It's four pages long and this is only the first page, so you'll have to buy the book to see what he was chuckling about!!
Mr. V, another splendid Denver artist, is second in place for speed so far, having turned in his finished inks only a week ago!
I have a list of over 20 artists who I'm totally psyched about. I also have three scripts that need artists to draw them, so if you're an artist looking for a script, email me!
My line-up of artists so far:
Oi Bob Parks and Berto
Justin and Andy
Nick Van Over
Thank you to everyone who submitted ideas! PSYCHED.
Here are a couple of important deadlines that you should know about!
Get your papers in for the first comics focused literary conference in Denver! It's the Rocky Mountain Conference on Comics and Graphic Novels! Just click on the link: http://www.denvercomiccon.com/literarycon/call-for-papers/
Both of the Cellar Door: Threshold contests will be ending on the 31st. If you are an artist be sure to get your drawings in based on the poem The Jabberwocky (http://www.facebook.com/events/262856103771332/). If you are more interested in the writing side of things, get your essay in connecting Lewis Carroll to the theme of Threshold (http://www.facebook.com/events/348960491785949/).
Hope to see your work!!!
Hey all you submitters from near and far! I'm looking to put together Kickstarter campaigns for both Cellar Door Threshold and the all-comics version Cellar Door Ancient!
What I would LOVE to have from you? If you have the capabilities send me a vid that I can splice in telling us your thoughts on the anthology or just a couple minutes of you being your wonderfully creative self (talking about your work, reading, or drawing). If you live in Denver Proper or the surrounding areas we have pro-status film friends with worthy equipment so you should call us and set something up!
I'd really like to get some of these done by the 15th of this month but there is not really a cut-off since we can use them as updates over the course of the campaign! I can't wait to see something from you! yes you!
