Calling all artists of all ages! (Check out my video on social media for all the details, or you can read about it below.)
When I was a kid, one of my favorite parts of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic were the back pages, where they published drawings of the characters made by kids just like me. I thought it was so cool that anyone from anywhere could put their art into a real comic book.
Fast forward to now, where I’m the guy making comic books, and I want to give everyone the same opportunity!
I’ve shared the character design sheets for Brushfire on my website — this one you’re on right now! — you can find them here. If you or a kid in your life is an artist, pick up a pencil or crayon or mouse or stylus and draw whichever characters you like from Brushfire. I’ll choose my favorite ones; those drawings will go into the back pages of Brushfire: Wave 1, and the artist will be credited and receive a free copy of the book as my thanks!
Right now there isn’t a deadline, as I still have lots of work to do myself, so this should give you time to work on something amazing! The wildlife in Brushfire love going on adventures and helping people, if that gives you an idea of where to start.
There will be a section for kid’s art and another for 18-and-over artists, if I get submissions from adults, too.
You can send the art as a direct message or to my email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy drawing, and I can’t wait to see your work!
