Hey guys, we sent out all of the emails regarding the portfolio submission application!
We just want to say on here that we are forever grateful and absolutely floored at the response we received from the open submission. We honestly expected about 50-150 people to apply, but we received ALMOST 500! It took us days to comb through every portfolio, but we did it and we’re very happy to have our final list of artists onboard the project. If you didn’t get in, please be assured that it’s not a signifier of your competence and we had to painfully reject some really really great people. If resources were unlimited, we would’ve gladly taken everyone that applied. We had a blast looking through everything and we hope you all continue to follow the project!
Thanks again everyone, more updates coming soon including the final artist list!
Happy International Literacy Day, guys!!!
(updates regarding Volume 2 coming soon, we promise!)
The Ladies of Literature: Volume 2 Call for Artists has officially closed! We’ll be in touch with our chosen artists by mid-September. Thanks everyone for the amazing response! We can’t wait to look at your work. :)
I'm really sorry about bothering you, and this seems to be too soon, but do you have any plans, however vague, of volume 3? I'm not really satisfied at the level I am right now and therefore will not submit my art to volume 2, but I would love to try once I've improved.
Currently, we aren’t thinking that far ahead. We’re estimating months and months of development on Volume 2, and that is taking first priority for us right now.
That being said, the two of us are always coming up with new collaborative illustration zines. Even if you don’t feel comfortable applying now, you might consider applying to one of our future projects. :)
Ladies of Literature call for artists open until 11:59pm on August 31st!
I'm sorry, I'm a little confused because of the title. I understand you're doing illustrations based on female authors and female characters but are you looking for only female artists aswell? Or is it open to both genders? (Also how many applicants do you have thus far, generally speaking, if you don't mind me asking?) thanks :)!
We’re looking for artists of all genders to draw female authors and female characters!
As for the number of applicants, the response thus far has been wonderful. A lot of artists have already submitted their names for consideration. Of course, we’re still looking for as many artists as possible to apply. The jurying process doesn’t start until after the form closes, so everyone has a fair chance, no matter how early or how late you applied.
