    Love 100 Artists Celebrate Will Eisner's Centennial Year

    In this Will Eisner Centennial Year, how about we get a hundred artists to draw characters created by The Master Storyteller; who has inspired many of us in our comicbook art.

    Characters created by Will Eisner have been selected for 100 artists to draw. Digital files will be submitted at the proportional size of 6.625“ x 10.25“ and will be 300 dpi. One character per artist. However, that character may be drawn by more than one artist. For instance, There are two spots for Ebony White and 8 spots open for 8 artists to draw Silk Satin.

    After all art is received, we then put it together as a plain vanilla .CBR and an interactive PDF with everyone getting the credit they deserve

    The layout of the issue will be roughly:

    1. Cover

    2. A short text piece about Eisner.

    3. Bio about Eisner.

    4. The pin-ups or sequential pages created by the 100 artists. However, you want to pay tribute to him based on the character selected.

    5. Credit pages with each artist providing name or username, country, favorite Eisner story or character, your web-site link.

    6. Back cover

    This will not be printed. It is strictly for download by the participating artists and whoever has the link.

    Due date to submit completed art is May 31st. Art can be in color or black & white. Do what you are best at; drawing or painting.
    Completed book and links to be provided on June 30th.

    Okay, lets celebrate!

    For those who may not know; Will Eisner (March 6, 1917 – January 3, 2005) was an American cartoonist, writer and entrepreneur. He was one of the earliest cartoonists to work in the American comic book industry, and his series The Spirit (1940–1952) was noted for its experiments in content and form. In 1978, he popularized the term "graphic novel" with the publication of his book A Contract with God. He was an early contributor to formal comics studies with his book Comics and Sequential Art (1985). The Eisner Award was named in his honor, and is given to recognize achievements each year in the comics medium; he was one of the three inaugural inductees to the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame.
