Guest Strip Project Nears 100th Entry
The Guest Strip Project has announced a new fundraiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundation (one of our personal favorites) as it nears its 100th strip. The project was conceived in April and was announced as a one year event that would raise money through ads, donations and upcoming merchandise.
The spot reserved for the 100th strip on December 1 is up for grabs.
Program leader Mike Rouse-Deane says, “If you haven’t already contributed to the Guest Strip Project all you need to do is a Christmas strip and be one of the 31 artists, webcomic artists or even just fans. As long as you can pick up a pencil, that’s all we need!”
When we first profiled the charity site, we outlined the requirements which remain:
One artist can only do one guest strip, they won’t be asked back, once their page is completed it’ll go into the archives and they can never return. This means its much more complicated but also allows other talented people out there to have a chance of making an impact.
At the side of each page are banners and also donation buttons where people can donate money to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. There’s also the store which will every so often have exclusive merchandise as well as spin-off books, posters, t-shirts and artwork up for grabs all donating to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Entries can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and a selection will be made just before the release date.
The strip must be 700 x 221, in a gif format and have a Christmas theme including one (or all) of the established characters. Your submission should contain your email with your website.
