Big round of applause...

..for everyone that submitted art for the books.



I am honored and grateful so many people submitted wonderful illustrations, the only words I can think of is thank you. Thank you everyone.

That's why I'll never write speeches.
Never ask me to make one, I'll bore everyone to sleep.

The only sad note may be that I may not have the space to put everyone in the book. You've all been so generous, I never even thought so many people would have the time to draw something. I've never been so tortured and so happy to be wrong, heh.
I will try my best, but I may have to edit out a few. I can't decide yet. Still putting pages in order.

But EVERYONE that submitted guest art will get copies, even if the art didn't make it in the final. You've all worked hard to do these on time, you deserve all the praise and recognition for it.

Here are a quick glance at all the entries.

GuestArt04

GuestArt03

GuestArt02

GuestArt01


All the guest art will go in the first book. The second one will have all the extras I can pull out.

Once again, thank you everyone.
(I just hope I won't cause too much anger if I have to edit out pictures- I am truly sorry, it's been hard to predict these things. I should have put a maximum number of entry...badly organised, mea culpa)

Aiee, these look great! I'm so glad you got such a great turnout. If you're trying to pare down some of the art, feel free to take out my Nauja picture if it'll free up space.

I can't wait to see the book! 8D

I'm trying to keep everyone in. I'll try until the very last second. I don't want to cut out anyone.

They are all totally wonderful! I think the one that really got to me with the snickering out loud was the Annual Ice Fishing. Zhaoka, wet, shivering, and with a teenytiny fish.

If it's simply a matter of running out of space, you could put several images on the same page. The ComicCon Souvenir booklit does that, they have some fan art that are full page spreads, and others 4 up...

or wait, maybe you are allready since they come up grouped on the photobucket image zoomy pages. I think my personal favorite is Zhao warming himself by the fire with all the black fading into scribbles around him. Very simple and iconic and artful. But yes, they're all fantasmic, and you should be gratified and smug that all these lovely people wanted to make them for you!
