All work will not be accepted. Only approved artwork will be printed the final product. People accepted will receive their own copies of the anthology.
So for the anthology we ask that you create thumbnails before going into a refine sketch, and then finished the final art work.
“But what’s a thumbnail?” To help clarify what we mean and expect at each of these steps, we’ll explain and also link to some examples from artists for visualizing.
We’ve extended the submission date to November 14th! Submissions still must be printed and given in SGA’s office, G400. Don’t pass this chance up!
See poster below for more details.
Now that we have our printer in place, (Thank you Rolling Press!), we’re planning our timeline for when the anthology should be done. The goal is to have the books done by MoCCA Fest.
Timeline and deadlines are subject to change! So be sure to stay updated!

About two weeks ago, Prof. Eli invited members of Ink Club to his class to see and meet his guest lecturer, George O’Connor. George is a comic artist and creator of the hit comic series ‘Olympians’. He talked about his path to where is his now, his process, and gave incredible advice’ that hopefully we can put into words here.
We’re excited to announce that the theme for our first anthology is ZODIAC!
All participants will submit an illustration or short comic based on the theme. You may choose to design your own version of a zodiac, delve in Chinese zodiac or other cultures, or even maybe tell a story with a zodiac or more! The choice is all up to you.
How can I participate?
Your work will not be submitted into the anthology if you do not make any thumbnails, sketches, and share work for critique. This is meant to be a professional project and will be treated as such. That said, all skill levels are accepted, we only require that you put the work into your submission.
Where do I start?
Research. Research. Research. Start brainstorming what you may want to do. Look up inspiration of other artists, books, or shows. SKETCH OVER AND OVER. Your first idea will not always be your best.
We’ll be giving a more detailed timeline of when you should be finishing up preliminary sketches down the line, as well as spec details. For questions, ask us.
Recently Ink Club participated in Club Pride! A chance to build more awareness and fund-raise. Thank you to all of those who helped out and stopped by to show your support. It was a huge learning experience so stay tuned for next time!
