One of the many things we've enjoyed about working on Ubuntu User magazine is the new illustrations we get for each Ubuntu release. 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 22, 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

    Thanks for the tip -- I'll check out that site! I know there are a lot of creative folks in the Ubuntu community so I hope a few of them are interested in doing some illustrations for us.

    I run the Ubuntu Artists deviantArt group and I'd be happy to pass on the news that your looking for artists that can draw ubuntu animals. You should check out some of the existing work and try and court an artist:
