Artists wanted to create a piece of art in exchange for a stay at our eco hotel in Oaxaca
There’s a big difference between illustrating and designing a figure. Concept artists should have the ability to visualize a miniature in 3-D and put it into a 2-D format.
A sculptor is going to use your concept art and will need as much information as possible to fully realize the finished miniature. Be sure to show things like a back view, fun details, and notes to explain something that could be overlooked or misinterpreted.
The important thing to remember is that a great illustration might not make a great miniatures design, and vice versa.
Since every issue of Creative Nonfiction features original illustrations, we are always on the lookout for new work and new artists.
We will consider various media (e.g. line drawings, watercolor, collage, etc.) and welcome all styles of interpretation, providing they are well suited to a print format. The artist chosen will work closely with CNF editorial and design staff to create 8 to 10 original designs to be featured on the cover and interior of the magazine.
This is an excellent opportunity for an artist (student or professional) to have their work prominently featured in an internationally circulated literary magazine. The artist chosen will also receive a modest honorarium and will be profiled prominently for at least three months on CNF’s website. Interviews with past artists are available here.
Interested artists should upload a resume and three samples of their best work; a link to an electronic portfolio is also encouraged.
