Dear Comic Art Fan,
Comic Art Fans is pleased to announce a collaboration with Jim Moorman, author of Jamaican Flowers. Jim will offer a comic artist the opportunity to turn his novel, Jamaican Flowers, into a full-length graphic novel and give Comic Art Fans subscribers the power to select the winner.
The contest begins on July 6, 2012 and run 90 days, ending at midnight on Halloween (October 31st.) Through banner advertising on sites like deviantart.com and through word of mouth, comic artists will be directed to a contest page on Comic Art Fans, where the competition rules will be published. Artists wishing to enter for a chance to win will be required to submit three sample pages of their choosing from an action sequence in the novel.
Submissions will reside on Comic Art Fans and CAF subscribers will be able to view the entries as they arrive. Guidelines' for submitting artwork can be found at the link. Beginning on October 15th, voting will open for CAF subscribers to vote for their favorite submission. The winner will be announced in a November edition of the weekly CAF newsletter.
Jim said, “I’m thrilled to be able to offer an opportunity like this to an artist who’s been waiting for his (or her) big break. Artists aren’t always writers, so by offering the opportunity to create a graphic novel based on a story that’s already been written will open the door for a lot of artists to compete. I hope CAF receives a lot of great entries from which to choose.”

See you next week!
