Illustrators needed for queer zine!
Una Buena Barba (literally, “a nice big beard”, in Spanish) is a kick-ass Spanish, soon to be bilingual, magazine about queer and feminist culture.
We are looking for illustrators for a zine we will be printing and presenting in late April. The topic is queer idols and icons. The zine will be a family album of sorts, featuring 20 illustrations of people who have influenced the queer movement in some way. It could be anyone, from Butler, to Bowie, Peppermint Patty to Lady Gaga. We want to feature as diverse a range of idols as possible, with a wide spectrum of genders, occupations, and races.
The zine will be sold at a literary event in Madrid in April, and possibly in bookshops as well.
- The illustration must be in black & white
- You can use whatever technique you wish as log as you send it in a digital format
- The image resolution must be 300dpi
- The size must not exceed A5
Final date for submissions: April 8th
Unfortunately we cannot afford to pay anyone at this time. Our earnings will be used to cover printing costs.
WHAT YOU WILL GET
-A free copy of the zine
-An Una Buena Barba button.
-Promotion of your work and website via our Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, website, and of course, the zine itself.
-Love, admiration, and awe from thousands of sexy queers, possibly millions, at least four.
