The Spectrum 25 Call For Entries is Open!

The Spectrum 25 Call For Entries is Open!

This is an invitation to all professional and student artists, art directors, publishers and artists’ representatives to submit entries to the 25th Annual Spectrum International Competition for Fantastic Art. All artworks in all media embracing the themes of science fiction, fantasy, horror and the surreal are eligible for this show. Fantastic art can be subtle or obvious, traditional or off-the-wall, painted, sculpted, done digitally or photographed: There is no unacceptable way to create art, and there are no set rules that say one piece qualifies while another does not. Imagination and skill are what matters. Work chosen by the jury will be printed in full color in the Spectrum annual, the peer-selected “best of the year” collection for the fantastic arts. Click here to submit.

The Spectrum 25 Call for Entries poster art is by the revered illustrator, Scott Gustafson. This poster mails for free in the U.S.A to our Spectrum mailing list. If you would like to receive a poster you can fill out the online form here.

The Spectrum 25 jury is comprised of a five member panel of some of the most exceptional artists working in the industry today consisting of Terry Dodson, Tyler Jacobson, Tran Nguyen, Karla Ortiz, and Chuck Pyle.

“I am delighted to have this esteemed group of renowned artists as the jury for Spectrum’s twenty-fifth anniversary,” shares Spectrum director, John Fleskes. “I am honored to have gathered this exceptional group. Each is respected by their peers, gives back to the community, and are celebrated by art admirers for their superb works. Additionally, they cover all of the aspects that make Spectrum great: its diversity and core message that all are welcome. They embrace all methods and categories featured within Spectrum by artists from all over the world, while having a profound knowledge of the industry. They have my full trust when selecting the works for inclusion into Spectrum 25, along with the silver and gold recipients who will be recognized during the Spectrum awards ceremony held in the spring of 2018.”

For over twenty-five years the Spectrum annual has been a showcase for the best and brightest creators of fantastic art from around the globe: it serves as an invaluable resource book for art directors, art buyers, publishers and agents world-wide. Hundreds of copies are sent out gratis with the intent of generating additional work and exposure for the artists selected for inclusion in the annual. The circulation of Spectrum far exceeds those of other annuals and resource books; we deliberately maintain a price that makes it affordable for every budget. Our purpose and singular agenda is the promotion of the art and artists. We believe that Spectrum functions as a cost-efficient promotional forum and provides a bridge between creator, client, and aficionado as well. Spectrum is all about facilitating opportunities for creators, about growing the audience for imaginative work in all its forms, without pretension and without prejudice.

The largest of this field’s competitions is also the toughest to make; the act of entering art does not guarantee inclusion in the book. Not everyone gets in. The “excellence bar” is raised every year: the job of the jury to make selections gets increasingly difficult. Not being selected is not a personal criticism of the artist, but having your work chosen by the judges is of significance. Join with us to help celebrate twenty-five years by making this volume the best yet: considering the excellence of the work in the previous twenty-four books, it will be no small task, but we’re confident you all can do it.

Enjoy,

John

Free Bonus Book For Supporting Our Hellboy by Mike Mignola and Gary Gianni Kickstarter Campaign!

Kickstarter link.

Hi, everyone,

Free bonus book for supporting our Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea by Mike Mignola and Gary Gianni Kickstarter campaign! How’s this for the best stretch goal ever? A free Gianni signed book with 100 pencil drawings.

Free fully illustrated The Call of Cthulhu book by Gianni to all Kickstarter supporters who pledge $50 or more if we reach our Stretch Goal #4, 80K goal! The Call of Cthulhu by H. P. Lovecraft comes illustrated with over one hundred pencil drawings by Gary Gianni. This 96 page paperback book will be 6 x 9.125 inches. All copies come signed by Gianni.

A few years ago, Gary Gianni began to work on a personal project; a fully illustrated edition of one of Lovecraft’s most highly regarded texts, The Call of Cthulhu. Gary Completed a full mock-up of the book by heavily designing the story with approximately 100 pencil drawings in preparation for the pen and ink finishes. Despite his intentions to complete the book, (George R.R. Martin wanted Gary to work on a small project of his!) and in spite of all the pencil work, it was set aside and never came to fruition. Now we have a unique opportunity to see this version in a beautifully produced book.

In addition, Gary is refining the design and many of the drawings to make this bonus book even more special. With your help we can give you this version as a free bonus for supporting the Kickstarter campaign with a pledge of $50.00 or more!

Thanks everyone for your ongoing support! Here’s the Kickstarter link.

Enjoy,

John

J.A.W. Cooper Online Interviews

Hi, everyone,

Over this last week there have been two interviews posted online that feature J.A.W. Cooper. I thought that I would share the details about each with you in case you were interested in learning more about Cooper.

The first one was conducted by Bobby Chiu from Schoolism. A portion of this interview is her philosophy regarding freedom vs. income and maintaining a proper balance in life. This hour-long video can be viewed on the Schoolism website, or on YouTube.

https://www.schoolism.com/interviews.php
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUDNRk1mneI

The second interview with Cooper was conducted by Walt Morton and is titled “Drawing the Inner Animal With J.A.W. Cooper. It’s an enjoyable read where you can gain much insight into her influences, working methods, and additional details regarding her philosophies.

https://www.poetsandartists.com/magazine/2017/5/14/jawcooper

We hope you enjoy these interviews!

Thanks again for all of your support!

Enjoy,

John

J.A.W. Cooper Kickstarter Campaign Update! New Stretch Goal Announced!

J.A.W. Cooper Kickstarter Link

Hi, everyone,

A lot has happened over the last week with J.A.W. Cooper’s Kickstarter campaign. Stretch goal after stretch goal has been unlocked as we continue to add more goodies for those who have pledged $25 or more.

Our supporters have all helped to make this campaign go far beyond what we could have ever imagined. We are unbelievably grateful for all of the enthusiastic comments, and the help in sharing the news on social media.

There have been three previous stretch goals that were shattered within days; An extra 16 pages of art for Familiars, a slipcase for the hardcover set, and four bonus prints for all pledges of $25 or more. Now, it’s time for another extra special item that will only be available to those who are a part of this campaign.

If we are fortunate to reach the $175K mark we will add a 1 inch enamel pin to every pledge of $25 or more! This new design of “Fig Frog” was made over the weekend by Cooper. This pin will only be available through this Kickstarter campaign. (Note that the design and colors are in progress and may change.)

Thanks again to all of our supporters! We certainly look forward to the possibility of extending this gift to those who pledged.

Enjoy,

John
