    Ok so rather than music itself, album covers? Or music genres. Encapture a style of music in an illustration. Blues, metal, jazz, r&b, 50s, techno...or even pick big name bands and design a cover. Eg Daft Punk, ACDC, Kamelot, Eminem, Ten Tenors etc.

    I agree that IOW should stick to stricter, more professional briefs most of the time, but I think every once in a while we should get the chance to go crazy!

    very cool activity !

    some things popping up in my mind


    - editorial - illustrate an article from an magazine
    - scientific illustration (biological,medical etc...)
    - children book illustration (different ages)
    - classic book-illustrations (black and white line-art for example)
    - book cover
    - record cover

    this would be some of the things an illustrator could be confronted with.
    think it would be good to see topics that are somehow related to "real" stuff like this.it´s a long way until an illustrator can "choose" his clients and get interesting topics like monsters and characters for video-games etc. often the topics clients present are less exciting. the art is to turn them into exciting illustrations. but i agree- that we need to have fun with this so the topics should be attractive enough.

    I am in accord with the posts that express concern for a preservation of the range of style which illustration can encompass. Illustration can be technical, it can be expressive, it can be abstract, it can be narrative, it can be highly stylized, or realistic, etc. It would be a pity if the only entries capable of winning were those which cater to a certain popular style. I am excited to see this new section happening and I hope that it lives up to its potential!

    Aksel (Nyctalgia) and I will be starting the first round when he returns from vacation within the next week or so. We decided it was better to have the two of us be able to discuss it properly and arrange a good beginning for this challenge rather than have one of us try to start it on our own.

    So basically: quite soon.

    Since CHOW is going to be more design-focused now, we could do a nice cross-over event with them or even do a big challenge where you can design various elements of the story in one of the other weeklies, then implement them into your illustration for IOW. And if we're really lucky, we might be able to rope in a nice Art Director (someone like Jon Schindehette from Art Order) to supply the concept/brief and maybe award the top voted entries with a critique.

    I think before suggesting any topics here, we need to come up with a set of rules and guidelines for this challenge, also if theres no mods for this yet, that should be a first priority! And the first round should be a mascot round i think

    Nyctalgia and I are the mods for this section. We will be ironing out the rules and have already got a general idea for the first round.

    We apologize for the delay, but since it's summer Andrew was away when this started and I was away the following three weeks. But I'm back! So it's time to get blasting.

    Expect things. Soon.

    I was wondering, if the deadlines so far have seemed longer than on most other challenges, why not call it illustration of the fortnight or something ?

    We're switching between one and two week challenges, so to keep it simple it's "of the week" at the moment.
