    Hehe, I took it in to Watts to show Jetpack, and everyone was crowded around it looking at it. I guess it just came out? I just stumbled accross it in Barnes and Nobel and was like "Oh shit, it's out! Sweet!"

    And yeah, I thought it was bigger than normal. I really dig it.

    GO BUY EEEET!

    Man, That 20 fee is sooo painful if you want to submitt more than one unrelated pieces.

    I understand they want serious applicants but, it seems so wrong. They make all lll that cash off artists. I extremely disagree...

    On the submissions do you have to be professional or a student, what about in between? I think that is my goal for the year to get something in one of these books. Expose just takes anyone right?...I mean not just anyone you still have to be good.

    A $20 per entry fee is entirely in line with comparable competitions (SI, American Illustration, CA, etc.). As a matter of fact, it's a bargain because there's no additional publication/hanging fee for the accepted entries. The logistics and expenses of putting a book like Spectrum together on an annual basis are enormous. Trust me, no one's pocketing any "ill cash" from it.

    There are no restrictions on who can enter. There are no separate categories for "professional" or "student" work. Anything unpublished, be it student work, portfolio pieces, gallery paintings, pre-production art, etc, gets submitted in the "unpublished" catagory.
    Download the entry form PDF, it will answer all your questions.

    jetpack42: Hey man. Yo, I just read that for Spectrum 12, that artists who get in do get a free copy. So maybe your right and the same is true for Spectrum 11.

    Yup, everyone who gets in gets a copy (last year it was even the hardcover). Hope it gets here soon!

    The book is better and better each year....and it started pretty damn good! There are too many great pieces to start naming names so -- Congrats to everyone that got in AND to everyone that tried.

    Tristan is right, it's an insane bargain. Not only is it advertising that you can't buy, it's also soooo much cheaper than any kind of advertising that you CAN buy. It doesn't take a high acceptance rate to pay for itself many times over.

    Man, Irene...I was commenting to some of the gang, that you were like the "it girl" in that book. It seems like every page has a picture on it that you art directed! haha

    Thanks, man....I'm just making the phone calls, making the art look good is the artists' fault.
