About | FAQ | Rules | Application Form | Current Artist Lineup

The application phase to the Pacific Rim fanbook is open! Please follow this link to the application form.

(Cosplay photography, craft photography, and writing submissions will be open at a later date!)

Please note that your final piece is not needed at this time! This form is simply for submitting existing work that is of the quality you would expect to submit as a final piece. People accepted in this phase have reserved themselves a spot in the book and will be included (provided they submit their piece by the deadline to be announced later).

Applications are open until November 30th!

After that, a submission phase will begin. The submission phase will be when those who were not accepted in the application phase, or missed it entirely, are given a chance to submit specific pieces for consideration. Writers, crafters, and cosplayers may also submit work at that point. (Accepted artists from the application phase will also have this same time frame to get their work done and submitted. The only difference is, those artists have already been accepted.)

I realize this two pronged method might be a little confusing. There were people who wished to apply before investing the time into a piece, and those who wished to just submit a piece. This is an attempt to have both those methods available. If there’s any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

A really cool Pacific Rim Fanbook is happening. I’m participating, and if you want to join in too check out the above info. 

So many awesome artists are already involved : D ! I’m so happy to be amongst you peeps.

Hey, folks. I’ll be publishing a new comics anthology next spring. Perhaps you’d like to pitch a story for it?

New World is a black-and-white sci-fi/fantasy comic anthology with the theme of exploration, colonization, conquest, assimilation, “going native,” appropriation, imperialism, strained relations… essentially, what happens when mutually un-contacted cultures, continents, and species collide.

The deadline for submissions is November 20th. Head on over to the official page to see how to submit, and I can’t wait to see what you’ve got.

japan-ism:

These lovable cat-themed sweets were made by Caroline, a Japanese housewife. She creates them annually on Cat’s Day — February 22. The cat-shaped sweets are nerikiri: a traditional Japanese sweet made by mixing sweet white bean paste and glutinous rice. Caroline tints and sculpts them into various shapes and styles; then puts them on pancakes and doughnuts as edible decorations. They’re just too cute to eat!

Diversity Group Announces Walter Dean Myers Award and Grants

We Need Diverse Books, the grassroots group of authors and others that coalesced around the lack of diversity in BookCon’s initial children’s author lineup this past spring, continues to advocate for more diversity in contemporary children’s literature by introducing new initiatives. WNDB is officially rolling out its new logo with this story. The organization announced exclusively to PW this week that it is launching an award and grants program in 2015. Also, Walter Dean Myers’s literary estate has granted WNDB the rights to name the award and grants in memory of the late children’s book writer, who was outspoken in his lifelong advocacy for multicultural children’s books. Myers died on July 1.
