So I need 4”x 5” B&W pictures of cats, each with enough room for me to add a fairly big word bubble. I’m looking for “realistic” cats doing dumb cat shit like playing with yarn or sleeping belly-up on a couch… No anthropomorphic critters. No Doctor Who mash-ups. Just cats.
Each artist may submit as many cat pictures as they want. I may accept none, some or all. You may recommend the belligerent statement that the cats make, but no guarantee I won’t change it.
Payment: Spec! (I almost never do that, but I don’t want to take money away from my real comics) When we get the book together, I’ll do a solicitation on nixcomics.com, sell as many as I can and we’ll all divvy up what’s left after print and shipping costs… Half to Nix Comics and half to the artists, pro rata per page published. Or 10 copies of the book.
Either way, it’s a horrible deal. You should only do it if you really like me or really like drawing kitties for no money.
Deadline: Open. When I get to 40 keepers, I’ll close it down.
Send all submissions as 300 dpi JPGs attached to an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Belligerent Kitties Submission.”
