Hang on a second while we grab that post for you.
Hi art friends!
As you may have read on the internets, rather than commissioning art from specific artists based on individual stories as we have done in the past, we are now opening up submissions. We’re looking for any art, photos, or cartoons that the creator thinks might fit with our general aesthetic.
Artists can submit through our Submittable page, by clicking on “pictures” here: https://dragnetmag.submittable.com/submit
The deadline for art for Issue Seven is December 5.
Of course, we can’t promise to take everything everyone sends in, but we’ll let you know within two weeks if we decide not to take something, so that you can send it elsewhere.
We can’t pay right now, but we hope to in the near future, and in the meantime we’ll talk you up like mad.
If you want to look at some of the stories for the issue for inspiration, let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we’ll pass them on to you, but it’s not necessary for you to work from them in any way. You can look at our past issues on http://dragnetmag.net if you want to see the sort of art we’ve featured in the past, but don’t let that restrict your imagination.
If you have other cool artist friends, feel free to pass this on, and if you have any questions, feel free to email us at the above address.
- 300+ dpi scans
- Ideally TIFF format, but PDF and JPEG are okay too as long as there’s no visible quality loss from your original.
- Our magazine is horizontal format so if you want it to be a full-page thing, rather than just accompanying text on a page, it should be 2560 px wide x 1600 px high
- Due December 5
This illustration is elegant and whimsical, which is what we tell our cover artists is the only requirement for each issue. This is not, however, the cover of issue four. (More on this later.)
This illustration makes me feel like I could train a platypus to beg for treats…they’d probably stab me with their venomous leg-spikes. Well, the males, at least.
