Calling all artists!
We will soon be accepting submissions for AlphaBands, the latest weekly art challenge from Alphabet Press! If you love music and want to participate, please join us at this space every Monday beginning January 20th, 2014.
All ages are welcome, no experience is needed, no genre of music will be excluded, and one may take part in as many or as few weeks of the project as one wants.
More news will come as it develops. Help us spread the word! Get this bootleg out into the world! Let’s get a monster lineup for the best concert ever!
vanderjess10 asked: Hi there! I participated in 'Alphabooks' blog and really had a fun time doing it. I'm curious to know when the next blog project is projected to be. Also, have you ever thought of doing a theme project based off of video/computer game characters? (It could be called 'Alphabytes' or alternately 'Alphabits'). I know a lot of artists tend to also be gamers, and I for one feel like this would be a great hit. :)
That’s a brilliant idea, but we do have a project lined up for the new year— we’ll be announcing it soon! (We’ll be sure to keep yours in mind though for next time!)
Realized I missed the letter “Q” so went back and did a QuispBot as a tribute to the awesome Jay Ward Studios.
Wanted to finish up AlphaBots and finally got the chance to do the last two letters. Here is “Y”.
Y is for YogiBot a tribute to awesome Hanna Barbera character designer Ed Benedict.
And letter “Z”.
Z is for ZotBot a tribute to Scott McCloud.
X, Y, Z! This is the end of #Alphabots!
X is for X-51, The Machine Man!
Y is for Yeti!
Z is for Zhora!
I started this project over 27 weeks ago and have finally finished my master “Challenge of The Alphabots” poster. Like all of my Alphabet projects, this was a learning experiment. So it’s far from perfect, but I’m very happy with what I learned about Manga Studio along the way. I’m looking forward to trying my hand at my own sequential stories with MS very soon!
