Show Your Inner Strange Kid Open Call

Strange Kids Club would like to give you a chance to show off your inner strange kid with an open call for entries!

Established to celebrate the pop culture retro geekdom of B-movie monsters, classic wrestling, comic books, toys and television shows; Strange Kids Club is seeking to recognize those talented illustrators, character designers and comic artists that wish to take part and be featured in an upcoming Strange Kid Anthology.

Strange Kids Club is looking for fan art, short comics, creative collages and more (even animations!) to compile into one huge SKC anthology towards the beginning of next year.

Objective

Strange Kids Club is seeking either fan art pin-ups and/or short comics featuring Strange Kid as the main protagonist.

The plot or artistic style of each submission will be solely at the discretion of the artist, suffice that they adhere to the most identifiable aspects of the character (namely his blue pompadour hairstyle, red and white striped t-shirt, lack of pupils and braces). Sample images are available online.

Prizes

All artists that submit work that is accepted into the anthology will receive a copy of the book.

Rules

  • In order to promote the participating artists, names and website URL’s will be included in the final book. If you wish to have this information withheld, please indicate so in your submission. Selected artworks may be showcased on the Strange Kids Club website. If you do not wish to have your work shown on the site, please indicate this as well. Strange Kids Club cannot be held liable for printing this information if not otherwise noted.

How to enter?

Strange Kids Club only accepts files submitted online via email. Please use ghostlab.ds@gmail.com as the recipient address and be sure to include “Strange Kid Anthology” in the subject header.

Prepare your files to be 300 DPI CMYK TIFF files , sized to approximately 11″ x 17″ and send a single compressed file (.ZIP or .RAR). If your file size exceeds 10mb, it is okay to send multiple compressed files. Be sure to include your name and the title of the image in each file name (for example: First_Last_Title.tif).
