I posted this to my Google+ circles a little while back, thought I'd run it by you guys (although a number of you are in those circles and probably saw this already...sorry for the endless self-pimpage.)
I'm working on the layout of my zombie apocalypse RPG Horde of Corpses and will be seeking art, but here's the thing: I'm totally not interested in people with a shred of artistic ability. I know that sounds bonkers, but hear me out.
Horde of Corpses started out as a Day of the Dead RPG I hacked together for myself and a few friends back in the early 80's. I'd nearly forgotten it's existence until one of those friends said he'd found the manuscript - 30+ pages of scribbled notebook paper stuffed in a beat-up yellow Trapper Keeper folder - in his mom's basement (yeah, I know ...)
Anyway, I decided to take those pages and lay them out in a professional manner, while preserving every typo and run-on sentence of the original text. It's as bad as you'd expect - the rules are shit , and very often straight-up batshit crazy. You should see the weapon list...it's insane. I'm re-doing the maps (there was a shopping mall scenario included in the original document). Scans of the original document will be included in an appendix, as well as a new version of the game rules.
So - here's the rub. I was originally going to do the interior illustrations myself, but I thought it might be more entertaining to go really meta with this whole thing and solicit drawings from people who don't have any artistic talent. Is this something any of you would find appealing? I've got zero monies tied up in this thing (doing all the layout myself, and probably will do POD for the publication - .pdf's of the finished product will be made freely available), so you'd be doing it out of the sheer satisfaction of seeing your half-assed artwork in print (and for full artistic credit, of course). For the cover itself I'll be scanning in the original Trapper Keeper folder and adding a few embellishments.
What I'm looking for: character sketches, people fighting off zombies, zombies eating people, that kind of stuff. The more your stuff looks like 'someone earnestly trying to draw something completely awesome and failing miserably' the better.
