tundraboy @ : Eric L tribute anthology
CALL TO ARTISTS: a tribute/benefit anthology for Eric Lappegard
Fellow cartoonist, cyclist, and all around wonderful person Eric Lappegard passed away on July 23rd, 2007 from complications after a car accident that had left him paralyzed earlier this month. Eric was a charming fella, full of passion and enthusiasm, and talented as hell. Please take the time to check out some of his wonderful comics and get a glimpse of what we’ve lost.
Eric's several communities of friends here in Minneapolis are putting together a day-long benefit/celebration of the life of Eric on SEPTEMBER 8th, 2007 which will include an "Alley Cat" bike race, an art show at Altered Esthetics gallery(www.alteredesthetics.com), silent auction, music, and more. All money will go towards Eric's parents to help pay for the remaining hospital bills, etc.
We here at the Cartoonists Conspiracy are doing our part by putting together an anthology and the art show- AND THAT'S WHERE YOU COME IN!
The anthology we are now accepting submissions for is to be called: "ALLEY CAT: CATS ON BIKES(with Ninjas) a tribute to Eric Lappegard"
The anthology's themes and your submissions are encouraged to be as wild and varied as Eric's interests(cats, bikes, ninjas, veganism, beer, or ANY COMBINATION THEREOF!).
1) Contributions of one or two pages of comics/pin-ups. The book will be BLACK AND WHITE.
The DEADLINE is AUGUST 15th, 2007. PERIOD!
2) In addition to the book we will be auctioning off ALL the original art in the name of Eric. We must insist in order to contribute, you must be willing to have your original auctioned off.
3) The final size of the book will be the mini-comic "standard" of 8.5"x5.5".
Your image will fit a 8"x5" area. Think proportionately!
4) Kevin and Zander Cannon of BIG TIME ATTIC have graciously offered to scan any art work not submitted via email or disk. (and in fact, unless you live outside the MPLS/ST PAUL area, I think they'd prefer to scan to keep a consistency.)
Their offices are located at: Big Time Attic 1618 Central Ave NE, Suite 216 Minneapolis, MN 55413 (ph) 612-521-7423 (fx) 612-605-9216

5) All orginal art must also be dropped-off/recieved via mail to BIG TIME ATTIC at the above address by the Friday, August 31st.
6) All contributors WILL receive a copy of the anthology, but we ask you consider either buying more anthologys/drinks/original art/prints at the tribute party since all money goes to Eric's parents to pay for medical bills, etc.
Also we strongly encourage donations directly via:
Account of Eric Lappegard Voyager Bank 500 Marschall Road Shakopee, MN 55379
So there you have it! Get that ink to paper and get it to us as soon as you can. Any questions can be address to any of the below emails. Also, PLEASE forward this to any and all cartoonist friends/associates you have. And thank you!

tundraboy @ : NH, VT, western MA anthology opportunity
Members of the Trees & Hills comics group (www.treesandhills.org ) are proud to announce that we plan to publish a second anthology of work by regional creators early this summer.
Submission details for the new anthology are located near the bottom of this message.
In October 2006, the comics group published the 60-page opus, Trees & Hills & Friends anthology, which featured cartoons by over 20 creators from New Hampshire, Vermont and western Massachusetts.
The mini-comic, which featured work by Stephen R. Bissette, Cat Garza and Marek Bennett, has sold more than 100 copies. This total does not include the copies that we gave to contributors for their work, meaning there may be nearly 200 copies out there in circulation.
The release of that book capped the first year of operation for Trees & Hills, which was formed by NH cartoonist Colin Tedford and VT writer Dan Barlow following a large turnout to a 24-Hour Comic event just more than a year earlier in Brattleboro, Vt.
Publishing and distributing the anthology was the first major expansion for the group, which had since been focusing on holding semi-monthly drawing parties, managing a Web site and tabling at local comic book conventions.
Format: The 2007 anthology – which does not yet have a name – will be 5.5 x 8.5 inches with a one-color cover and black and white interiors. It will be a mini-comic; the same size width and length as the previous anthology.
Content: There will also be a change in the content we are looking for in this publication. This time around we are looking for all-ages contributions, whereas the first publication was a showcase of the talents of the many members of our group.
Now, we are hoping for a comic that children, teenagers and adults will all be able to enjoy.
Details: Every contributor will receive one copy of the book per page published. We're looking for copies of the content; please do not send original art. If you live in Vermont, please send the contributions to firstname.lastname@example.org and New Hampshire artists can send their work to email@example.com
Creators from Massachusetts can choose either Dan or Colin to send their artwork to.
Photocopies snail mail submissions can be sent to Colin Tedford, PO Box 645, Winchester, NH 03470 or Dan Barlow, 182 Main Street #2, Montpelier, VT 05602.
The submission deadline is Saturday, May 26.
