I have been working with an illustrator, but she having family issues.  Now find myself looking for new illustrator. I am looking for sample illustrations of kittens or cats.

My children's' chapter book is called Mr. Grumbles.

It is about a kitten is abandoned at the side of the road at a driveway to a house. He has to deal with the weather, other animals living in the front yard, and finding food. His survival is up to him until humans of the house take him in.

It is based on a true story. I have lots photos and a video for a illustrator to work with be able to illustrate the characters in my book. I am looking for realistic illustrations not paintings, Japanese’s style, cartoons, or comic book.

Call for submissions

This is a call for action to all authors to create a short literary piece inspired by an art work.  Any aspiring writer or poet can choose up to five art works from preselected images by Artem Mirolevich and submit up to five individual literary pieces.  The format is up to one written page (500 words maximum) per art work.

You are invited to submit short stories, poems, essays, scripts or any other type of creative writing.  One submission per each art work will be selected by a jury to be published in the Book of Doors.  The book will feature over 50 stories by various authors and over 50 art works by Artem Mirolevich.

Submissions will be judged based on their literary quality and its relevance to the art work. Prizes of $300, $200, $100 will be awarded for the top 3 submissions. Winners will be announced by September 1st.,2018.  All co -authors chosen for the printed format will receive a free copy of the book and a limited edition print of an art work.  All participating authors will be featured in the Book of Doors blog. The aim of the book is promoting creative collaborations between writers and artists.  

 

From the artist:

Literature is one of my primary sources of inspiration. Tolkien, Dante, Tolstoy, Asimov and numerous other writers and poets helped me shape my own vision  as a visual story teller.

My story starts with a protagonist Goggle Man, who travels through time and Space using his goggles.  He visits numerous worlds, makes friends and enemies , learns secrets of the universe and finds his true love. 

The art work selected for the book is divided into five worlds or chapters. Each chapter has a brief introduction, describing what inspired me to create it. You are definitely not obliged to follow it and are encouraged to use your imagination freely. The only condition for successful collaboration is relevance between the visual and verbal components. 

Each chapter represents a milestone in the development of humanity. From the birth of life itself (CH. 1 Tree of Life) to the very first story tellers that created religion and mythology (CH. 2 Elephants), which inevitably led to the development of thriving civilizations from Babylon to New York City (CH 3. Metropolis) to its it’s probable self destruction (CH. 4 Sunken City) and ultimate redemption (CH 5 Cosmic Love). I can’t help but look at the collapse of history’s greatest civilizations and wonder what the future holds for our own. If Rome didn’t make it, what chance do we have? Is there anything that could unite us as a species or is it too late to destroy all the borders we’ve built?

Book of Doors format: 10”x 12” Hard cover, premium paper,museum-quality binding, full color, 160 pages.

The Blockchain Challenge

City:

A blockchain is a continuously growing list of records (blocks), which are linked and secured using cryptography. Invented by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008 to serve as the public transaction book of the cryptocurrency bitcoin, blockchains were designed to be secure. This makes them perfect for many uses like;  identity management, recording of intellectual property, transaction processing, food traceability, and even voting.

In our case we have used it to create a decentralised application in which creatives can show and monetize their work without intermediaries. Providing the capability for creators all around the world to be compensated for their intellectual property.

For this Weeklys Challenge we want you to get inspired by the blockchain! Be it a collage, illustration, animation or photo we want to see what blockchain means to our community!

The challenge is open to all public. Simply download the Creativechain’s app, create an entry fitting with the challenge’s theme, add the specific tag (blockchainweeklys), and you’re in!
