Engage Wonderment: Update!


Attention all Odyssey “Tokyo Zephyr” Participants!






Your opportunity to be a published artist as a part of “Tokyo Zephyr” is here. “Tokyo Zephyr” (yes, that will be the “Odyssey” book’s name!) is coming closer and closer to publication! (The chosen charity for all proceeds to rain upon will be UNICEF.)


We are now encouraging submissions for:


  • Illustrations for Chapter 7 & Chapter 8 covers;
  • Three (3) poems;
  • A collaborative piece which will be judged by yuumei and;
  • The “ultimate” illustration for the cover of the book itself.











Here is an example of the idea for the collaborative piece.
We would need to decide on a line drawing first, then color artists for each square.





Deadline


Please have all your submissions submitted by

Monday, May 21, 2012, 6:00 pm PST












DeevElliott has joined the team to help us with this last lap on our way to the finish line. Dave will be working with us as we bring all of this beautiful work together and ready this book for publication. Dave has mastered every aspect of the publishing industry during his career and we are excited to have him on board.






Submission Folders



Folders are open in the Odyssey Group for your submissions for these last important elements. If you’ve submitted previously elsewhere, please re-submit to these new folders to help with the proper perusal and judgment of all the entries.



















:thumb276645021::thumb273731657:Odyssey: Just Like Old Times by Kaneladit:thumb277704769:







Thanks for all the thoughtful comments and ideas everyone has already shared with us on what elements of the Odyssey project should be included in the book, and I still want as much input as possible about more deviously creative elements that could be added to make the book really stand apart!  Keep thinking and keep communicating!  We’ve got something really special in the making here!  


The other important element  is that we have this process locked now.  So when I announce the next Odyssey Project I will be also be able to announce the publication date for that project as well.

I realize this maybe a very dumb question but I am a bit lost on how to submit an entry for the poems. I enterd the galery with poems and when I put submit, then contest there is no "Odyssey into 2012"...so how should I submit? Should I send a PM? Thank you for understanding...

It's fine, I'll tell you what to do. :)

Submit your poetry as per normal as free verse, traditional, etc. through dA's main submit button.

Then you join the Super Group here: [link]
Once you join you'll see a button there instead called "Contribute". Click on that and it'll let you "contribute"/submit your poem into the category you're entering into. :) After that you're done. Tell me if you have any more problems. ^^

Change of plans people! We are now ACCEPTING LINE ART for the COLLABORATIVE PIECE! Make it nice and big, with plenty of potential colouring space so we can have lots of artists come onboard! Please at least use a DPI of 300 and a fairly high resolution seeing as this being printed and we want artists to have some room when they colour! Go nuts people!

I guess I'm a little confused too. you want art submitted and poems but you can't read the actual chapters these need to be based off because they aren't picked yet? Or did I miss something

First the poem must conform to these rules: [link]
It must be only for the Project or it'll be rejected.

Then you submit your poem as literature, join the super group: [link]
and contribute your poem there. :)
