send everything in low res to email@example.com, but do have it available in 300dpi, high res .jpg in case you are chosen.
The book will be printed in Spanish -Gutter is a Buenos Aires-based indie small press project-, but we have translators available, so if you want to send the script in English we can translate it :)
If you want to see any of our previous projects to get an idea of what we usually go for, you can visit our site and take a peek :D www.gutterglitter.net
send everything to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: March 31st, 2015
Specs for Illustrators:
This time we’ve decided to make some changes, and we’ll be receiving portfolios up to December. After this date, we’ll assign a short story to the chosen artists for them to illustrate with at least 3 illustrations. Because the book will be in Spanish, and we don’t have the time to translate the stories to English, it will be necessary for the artists to understand Spanish or have someone around to tell them what the story they need to illustrate is about.
send your portfolio to: email@example.com
Deadline portfolios: December 31st, 2014
Deadline finished illustrations: March 31st, 2015
¿How to participate?
Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org in low res (just make sure to have your work ready in high resolution in case we pick you, same with your contact info so we can credit you properly!) Each artist will get an issue of the book they appeared in. Due to our small runs, in case of creative teams (comic artist+script writer, for example), they will still receive one issue for the team.
Gutter Glitter keeps only the non-exclusive rights to publish the creators’ works in said anthology. Any question just let us know!
(please share in case you know someone who might be interested in participating, thanks!)
