Conbook looking for art submissions [The 80s]
« on: 05.04.2016, 13:41:14 »

„It’s just a jump to the left,
and then a step to the right,
with your hands on your hips,
and bring your knees in tight!
But it's the pelvic thrust
that really drives you insane!
Let's do the time warp again!
Let's do the time warp again!“


Dear artists and creative minds,

This year's theme for Eurofurence 22 is „The 80s“. Some of you might vividly remember, some have not been born yet to that time – however this should not be a barrier on our way to turn this blast from the past into an unforgettable experience!  

The Eurofurence Conbook is once again looking for both full page and small filler illustrations. With a bit of luck you will see your art printed in the conbook, which will be handed out to every attendee at the convention. We appreciate every single submission and would encourage every artist who feels inspired by our theme to take a chance and have a go.

To help jump-start your inspiration, here are some key ideas that show the wide range of possibilities within this topic:
  • Old-school video games, Arcades, Boomboxes
  • Famous 80s movies and series (A-Team, Knight Rider, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Tron)
  • 80s music, be it disco, techno or punk rock
  • trends like aerobic dance, yoyos, Rubik's Cubes, hula hoops
  • Fancy fashion, crazy hair styles and neon colors

Basically, you can let your imagination run wild.

As a rule, please keep all submissions FSK 12 / PG-13. Also, you don't have to take the theme too seriously. Funny interpretations are highly welcome as well.

The Conbook is in full color, and so color illustrations as preferred. The format for full page illustrations is A4 (210x297mm) plus 3mm cropping area along all edges, adding up to a total of 216x303mm or 2551x3578 pixels at 300 dpi.

Fillers should be saved as PNG with a transparent background and be at least 1500px on the longest side (larger files are no problem at all). Their dimensions and aspect ratio will of course depend upon their particular content and purpose, but please make sure they don't turn out too small.

The deadline for submissions is the 30th of June.

You don't have to be an attendee to submit artwork to the conbook; if you just like the theme, feel free to send us something. There are so many awesome artists out there who simply don't go to conventions, or at least are not able to take part in this year's Eurofurence, and they deserve a chance as well.

Please send all finished art to!
