WkndUpdate: Comic Submissions from Image Comics

10.20.18 So you wanna write or draw for comic books? Well, I’m sure some of you have already known this, but for those who don’t, I’m going to pass along on how you can get your submissions into the comic or graphic novel world. Here is one for Image Comics. This is from their submissions page, just a peek at what they expect. Credit source: Image Comics HOW TO SUBMIT TO IMAGE COMICS: Image Comics only publishes creator-owned material. We do not contract creators; we’re only interested in publishing original content for which you would retain all rights. Please do not submit any work that utilizes already-existing characters—Image characters or otherwise—as they will automatically be declined. Image Comics publishes creator-owned/creator-generated properties and WE DON’T PAY PAGE RATES. Image takes a small flat fee off the books published and it will be the responsibility of the creators to determine the division of the remaining pay between their creative team members. Things often change from proposal to the printed page. If the intended title of your book is awkward or …

Where To…Atlanta, Georgia

10.20.18 Back from London and now we are in Atlanta, Georgia. What can you do in Atlanta? Pretty much everything… Credit source: http://www.atlanta.net & City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs   Launched in 2011, the first exhibition of ELEVATE hosted 15 events and 40 performances over 66 days. Artwork filled vacant properties, street corners and plazas to showcase artwork ranging from 13 story murals to contemporary dance, video, installation, and poetry. Although public funding allocated through our percent for art program was the direct source for the artist commissions, additional funding to execute an exhibition of this caliber was provided through local Atlanta businesses. Donation of art space, hotel rooms, theatrical lighting, food, advertising, and cash support nearly doubled the exhibitions initial budget, demonstrating the immediate community support. This intensive cultural programming brought in 13,313 new visitors to downtown Atlanta. At the end of the program, downtown property owners and businesses adopted the bulk of the visual work commissioned through ELEVATE. The artwork has now been incorporated into the permanent downtown landscape. In addition …

Favorite Scary Film: When A Stranger Calls

10.17.18 Hey! Another favorite scary film of mine, When A Stranger Calls. I discovered this old gem when I saw Bravo’s 100 Scary Moments several years ago. After seeing that scary moment in the film, I was anxious to know more about it. I bought the DVD and I wasn’t disappointed.  A young high school student babysits for a very rich family. She begins to receive strange phone calls threatening the children. When she finally realises that it’s not a joke, she calls the police, only to find that the calls are coming from inside the house. Starring Carole Kane and directed by Fred Walton (who directed the short film, The Sitter, which this film is based on) those 20 minutes of the film gave me chills! I used to babysit and this film would’ve cut short my babysitting career immediately. In fact, according to Wikipedia (my best friend), the film received a bit of a cult following because of those 20 minutes, which made it the scariest openings in horror history. Released on October …

Shadow Spotlight: The Works of Herb Ritts

10.15.18 Hello! Wanted to put the spotlight on the late Herb Ritts. Madonna, Johnny Depp, Denzel Washington, including supermodels Cindy Crawford, and Noami Campbell have graced the late photographer’s lenses. He was also a video director for Madonna, Michael Jackson, and Chris Isaak. I will let his works speak for him.         I can’t describe his works, but again, these people who worked with him can describe it. He left a beautiful mark in the field of photography.
