Last Monthly Topic: Farewell!

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 13, 2014, 2:30 AM


Hello dear members!

We decided it's time to let go. Let go of this club that has been on "life support" for a very, very long time now and give our full attention to the projects we feel need us more.

It was great being here, seeing your beautiful illustrations and your take on themes.

:heart: Here's a HUGE thank you to those few of you that kept the club going for so long. You kept us going. :hug: :heart:

We shall log in from time to time and submit your deviations so all is not lost yet, but there won't be any new topics from now on.


Last Monthly Topic: Farewell!

Will it be a happy or a sad one? Let us know.



New theme will start from March 13th (your deviation must be submitted on or after March 13th). This must be a brand new and finished children's illustration, NO DOODLE and NO SKETCH accepted!

Since as of April 2013, all previous topics are now open, when you send us your note with the deviation please refer to which theme you are submitting to.

Also, please, mention the club in your deviation description.

For members only.


Do remember that, if you wanted to submit to this topic but couldn't do it, there's still time!
Send us a note with your submission and we'll add it to the gallery.


WE STILL LOVE YOU! :heart:
the team (Nini and Toia)

Queridos Ilustradores y amantes de libros infantiles!
(Dato para Buenos Aires)

Quería contarles que hoy fuí a la muestra "Elsa Bornemann ilustrada" que está en la Biblioteca Nacional del Congreso (Adolfo Alsina al 1835) Hay una exposición (pequeña, pero hermosa) de diferentes ilustraciones a partir de Cuentos de nuestra queridísima Elsa Bornemann. Para todos aquellos que hayan disfrutado que sus padres les leyeran una historia cuando niños, hayan leido por su cuenta o ustedes les hayan leido a algun niño, quería recomendarles se dieran una vueltita. La Muestra es de lunes a viernes (creo que de 9 a 20) y ya sólo queda una semana en exposición.
Si quieren volver un ratito a la infancia o inspirarse un poco les recomiendo vayan porque yo me volvi a sentir niña por un ratito.
Un abrazo a todos <3

Hi,

My name is Anna and I'm currently working on an interactive, multi device, digital kids book. The story is an urban take on Stone Soup. It's a new kind of children’s popup book to be experienced across a tablet and a smartphone. Each page of text is accompanied by a dynamic illustration that can be modified by content and gestural use of the smartphone. So for example, it's snowing on the first page of the book and the reader can pour snow from the handheld device onto the tablet below, where 3 raccoons are pictured (along with the story text). I am a designer and programmer and I am seeking an illustrator to work on this project ASAP. I also have a budget. No technical skills needed but the timeline for the project is only 12 weeks.

To inquire about the project, email annalocalitegames.com

childrensillustrator Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2013
that's perfectly fine! as long as it is in your own style and not a copy of the original animation there should be no problem :)

give it a go if you want, we have opened up for submissions all previous topics!

I don't think that matters-- I submitted something for this month's topic that is an animated movie, but did it in my own illustrative style that makes it different/unique from the film.

Maybe I'm wrong and went about it the wrong way, but as long as you're exploring it in your illustration style, I think you're allowed to pick whatever you want! :)
