[Feb. 4th: THE SIX SEMI-FINALSTS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED! Please check your emails! : ) ]
I wanted to reach out to my lovely lolita girls in the community again for an illustrator call/entry submissions!
Pop Princess is excited to announce its selection for its 6th fashion show, to appear on the runway and in the boutique at this year's Frill 2013, the all lolita convention! (http://affrilliation.com/)
As such, we are looking to celebrate and collaborate with one selected illustrator to create custom printed fabric yardage for the indie brand to appear at this event! Whomever is selected will have an exclusive contract to work with Pop Princess, and the designer, Annika Simmons, as well as share mutual and exclusive rights to the illustrations/prints, as well as exposure as a lolita artist! Plus, who doesn't like getting paid to illustrate right? : )
(See designs/blog here: http://lepopprincess.blogspot.com/)
If the custom illustrated prints receive a good amount of exposure and excitement at the fashion show/boutique, then Pop Princess will be looking to keep the illustrator on for further prints in the future! The indie brand is mostly sweet, but is looking for an illustrator that is well rounded and would be able to do all kinds of styles of illustration: sweet, classic, gothic, etc.
To give you an idea, I am looking to have the first exclusive print for Pop Princess to pay homage to my little white Holland lop bunny that passed away a year ago named, Hopscotch.
Criteria of Illustrator Submissions:
- Is willing to work with the designer, be flexible, and bring the creations/ideas to life
- Has a good eye and skill for illustration (i.e. proportion, color concept, overall design)
- Is well versed in both Illustrator and Photoshop in order to create full color digital illustrations
- Must be fully committed, hard working, and able to meet/complete deadlines
- Be able to create sweet lolita prints---a bonus if you can do other styles as well!
Submission Entry Form: (Please post entries into the comments section, thanks! ^-^)
A Portfolio Link: (i.e. a website portfolio, Deviantart, etc---I want to see your best work! : ) )
A Little About Yourself: (i.e. how long have you been an illustrator? etc)
What Makes You The Right Candidate for Pop Princess?:
We will be accepting submissions/entries until probably the 1st of February, maybe a bit longer if the response is good! I would like to collect as many candidates as possible, and then will be contacting the top three! I will post another announcement of the selected illustrators here on EGL after February 1st, as well as sending an email out to all our wonderful illustrators that submitted!
If you have questions, please drop me a line!
Looking forward to seeing all of your lovely work, and hoping to work with you soon!
