You have been invited to take part in the "Sea Dracula cover illustration and world improvement program". Yes you. The person reading this. By providing a cover illustration for Sea Dracula (which was recently named 2007 game of the year
), you'll be making both the world in general and this product in particular a better place.
We have very low standards, so there is no need to do your best work on this project. Our own work has been close to sub-par. The design specs for this project are very simple. The cover art needs to fit in a space no more the 4.25 inches wide by 2.75 inches tall. Yes, I know how small that is. The art needs to be reproducible in black and white. The art needs to feature the title of the game "Sea Dracula", along with the text "by Nick & Jake". The art needs to feature some variation of the text "Just $1.00!". The art should also feature your name or signature. You can use my own mock-up illustration as reference.
Sea Dracula is a game about dancing animal lawyers from Animal City. Sea Dracula is actually the name of the famous giraffe lawyer that founded Animal Cities corrupt legal system. While you should feel free to create any kind of image you want, might we suggest some of the following themes?
We will be accepting multiple cover submissions with the intent of printing several different covers. While this project does not pay in any usable or legal currency, either I or Nick will give you a short and emotionless hug the next time we see you.
The deadline for this project is Tuesday, March 25th. Final art or questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your participation and cooperation.
