CALL for ENTRIES: Steampunk
More than once I have reported my concerns about the sci-fi food of the future as it is predicted to involve printers and replicators. Scary. But, I am certain the Victorians were a little afraid of all the gadgets that were exploding onto the culinary scene during their time; however, the apple peeler and refrigerator turned out not to be so scary after all.

CALL for ENTRIES:
Steampunk Originals is a steampunk-themed comic anthology published by Arcana. Arcana has published 300+ graphic novels and 1000s of comics carried through Diamond Distribution & Barnes and Nobel.
‘Punk expresses a critical stance on society. If you lose the punk from Steampunk, you’re just blowing hot air.’ This theme poses an alternative timeline where the culture and power-sources from the 19th century persist to the modern day. Artists and story tellers are then asked to use this alternative reality to reflect and comment on our own.
ELIGIBILITY: Open to all artists. This anthology is looking for 1-12 page full color comics which explore the steampunk theme through are of all styles + media and stories of all tones + genre. Artists may choose to work independently or with a writer. (The coordinating editor will assist interested artists in finding a writer/ script to work with.)
MEDIA: Open to all visual media. This anthology series is not restricted to traditional ‘comic art’. Submit Uncompressed TIF files (6.875″ x 10.5″ @ 300 PPI) with any digital lettering layers un-flattened (if comic contains text that is not hand-lettered).
DEADLINE: January 14th, 2013
NOTIFICATION: February 11th, 2013
ENTRY FEE: There is no entry fee or limit to the number of entries an artist may submit.
JUROR (Co-ordinating Editor): Mike Schneider (of Neoflux Productions) brings anti-art traditions to mass-media production. His collaborative works frequently involve hundreds to thousands of international artists, illustrators, and animators.
