MEANDERING REALMS:

AN UNCONVENTIONAL MATERIALS COMICS ANTHOLOGY


Calling all artists who create comics out of UNCONVENTIONAL MATERIALS!

I am accepting pitches for original comics work in any genre that are made using unconventional comics materials such as embroidery, clayworks, cut paper etc. 

Submission pitches are due *NOVEMBER 9TH*.

PITCH SPECIFICATIONS:

1. A brief description about what the comic is about and what it is made out of.
2. Estimated page count. (Thumbnails are optional but encouraged!)
3. Estimated length of execution (How long do you think it will realistically take for you to make this? Be honest about what time you need, I’m in no rush!)
4. One page of final (or as close to final as possible) art to show me your vision and that you can execute your plan!
