Earlier this month I announced that we are looking for a new artist to illustrate Ubuntu User magazine. This announcement was followed by the soothing sound of crickets chirping.

I've decided to extend the call for artists for another week because maybe I wasn't very clear in my first call: You do not have to be a professional artist. If your art is chosen to run in the magazine, you will get fame and fortune (well, at least you'll get published, get credit, and get paid). Here are the dirty details again, with the new & improved deadline:

Our artist, Curt, is ready to pass the torch on to a new illustrator. If you'd like to have your art considered for our next issue of Ubuntu User, submit two sample drawings of a "Lucid Lynx" by March 29, 2010, 5pm CST (GMT -6).

In one illustration, the Lucid Lynx critter should illustrate the theme "Networking," and in the other it should illustrate "Security."

To see previous illustrations in action, check out the Discovery Guide section in issue #1: http://ubuntu-user.com/free1

The details for submitting art:

Vector graphics:

 

  • Size: as big as possible (at least 8'' x 6'')
  • File format: .eps, .svg, .ai (Adobe Illustrator)
  • Fonts (if used) should be converted to paths
  • Color space, RGB, CMYK (RGB is better) – no spot colors
  • Transparent background

 

Pixel graphics:

 

  • Size: as big as possible (at least 8'' x 6'')
  • High resolution: 300 dpi at least
  • File format: .png (high res), .jpg, .psd (Photoshop)
  • Color space, RGB, CMYK (RGB is better) – no spot colors
  • Transparent background (or include a proper clipping path)

 

Important: If you use Adobe Creative Suite be sure to save your art in a CS3-compatible format.

Include your full name, phone number, & email address with your art submission: If your art is selected for our next issue, we'll contact you to work out the details.

Submit art via email attachments to: rkite@linuxpromagazine.com
