Artist Call Detail

Speed Read
For International artists

Artists will be tasked with creating a "book cover" for a 1-5 page short story. These contemporary stories have been handpicked by author Adam Schuitema (creator of Freshwater Boys and Haymaker).

The stories will vary widely in theme. We want to showcase the connection that visual and written art have always had but rarely get to share in the modern printing world.

All artists and authors will be paired blindly. Artists will work separately from the authors to create a cover they feel conveys the mood of the story. The title and author's name must be included in the final illustration. Artists are also welcome to include their own name or signature on the cover.

We are asking for a quick turnaround on this one with only until the 26th of November to work on art. This is due to printing times.

The work will be printed in an anthology book including all stories and covers.

We welcome all mediums and styles for consideration!
