Anthology Theme – ZODIAC

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.

Club Pride

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!
