ⓚⓑ ⓓoodles and illustrations

fictograph:

I was rather floored by the response to my cursory interest post.  So now it’s time to release one some actual details in an official post:

WHAT IT IS: I’m obsessed with this show, and I know other folks are, too.  I just want to connect professional and aspiring fantasy illustrators with a common interest by printing a book of fan art celebrating Game of Thrones.

I am looking to have a list of 100 artists.  I have a number of professional peers confirmed already, but the deadlines are far away, and it’s hard to say what’ll happen! With 100 artists - even if if half drop out - there will still be enough content for a book.

  • WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR: Composed illustrations. You need to fill a finished page and tell a story.  If you have a particularly good sample, please point it out.
  • HOW TO APPLY: Please send me a gallery or blog link or samples through my e-mail (gracepfongATgmailDOTcom). Do NOT start drawing without approval, expecting it to go into the book!
  • REQUIREMENTS: All pieces must be new for the book and not posted online until the Kickstarter begins.  Must reflect book or show canon.  Must be SFW.  
  • TIMELINE:  Deadline for Application is July 7, 2014.  Accepted Applicants notified by July 31.  Thumbnails due August 31. Sketches due October 31. Final pieces due December 31. Kickstarter will run from March 1-31, 2015 (in time for Season 5!).  Product should be shipped by the end of Season 5.
  • COMPENSATION: You will receive a free copy of the book and a flat fee (TBD).  There may be a chance of additional exposure. Amateur applicants can also receive critique to help them with the illustration process. You and a guest will also receive an invite to my next Game of Thrones Feast (in Los Angeles, CA), but you have to provide your own transportation and housing.  Any extra profit will be given to charity (TBD).  
  • Note, if the project receives a cease-and-desist from the owners of Game of Thrones, the project will be canned without compensation for anyone…. :( 

ABOUT ME: I am a programmer and illustrator from Los Angeles, California.  I’ve successfully crowd-funded two art books (and contributed/consulted on a few more), and after two years of doing nothing, I wanted to try something bigger. I just really like this show.  As project manager, I will handle deadline planning, graphic designing, campaign funding, and product disbursement, so all you have to do is e-mail me a file!

So yeah, that’s about it!  Send me your samples (gracepfongATgmailDOTcom).

If you know any artists who might be interested, please re-blog this opportunity for them. Thanks!

BANNER ART CREDITS: Coyfish, Fictograph, Jax Jocson, Zimmay, Dana Guerrieri. ((All these artists are confirmed for the book.))

I was so excited to hear that RedBubble added tote bags to their line-up! I’m going to be buying the reading gals one soon. If you guys would like me to make a specific pattern (ie. certain animals, certain guys or gals.) please, please let me know! I customized the space animals piece for a friend of mine to just the monkey and hamster, so don’t hesitate!

HERE FOR TOTEBAGS!

Bing bang booming these collabs, folks. Just kind of hoping that this’ll get me to do pieces at least a couple times a week. Welp, here’s Derwin, derrrrr, for the Animal Crossing Collab! I managed to get it before the due date too. Hip hip hoorah.

Revisit of this piece when I was trying so very hard to get away from line art and experimented a lot with colors and rendering. These characters were a lot of fun to work with again. As a refresher, these critters are some of the first animals to be taken to space! In no particular order.
Prints, etc. Here!

Digisona week! Was super excited to see this was a thing, so I jumped at the chance to rehash some of Yahoo! chatroom memories. That was way back when. I had (albeit) lazily come up with Snowmon, Gatomon’s ice counterpart and we conquered the Digital World in prose and roleplay.
Kira and Snowmon. She uses the crest of Tenacity. And, that’s all, folks!
PS: Forgot to link you guys. Please join!

Some Mother’s Day art from yours truly. Even though Nurse’s appreciation week was last week, props to our Mom who’s been bringing bread to the table since we moved to the states a long while back. On top of that, I’ll be the first of the family to graduate with a degree in the states. Much to celebrate this week and be grateful for. Have some floating mother/daughter action.

WIP of more of the One Piece Collab character I grabbed. I suddenly don’t remember how people look like on bikes. Holy.

Claimed a second character for the One Piece Collab. I can’t figure out which direction I want to go in. I just find Aokiji on a bike so adorable.

Each of us gets two pages in our year’s senior books and this is the second page of mine. The chairman and Jillian agreed that the tennis piece would represent me the best, so I had to pull this out before the last day of classes on Weds. This is a complete redo of the reading girls piece earlier last semester and I’m quite happy with it.Prints and phone covers here

I’d just like to think that B-MO would see the good in what happened and that would cheer up Finn. Bros for life.
Print available here.
