Hello Friends-

So my email is totally, totally messed up due to Spammer Hijacking (my term). Ugh. So if you have sent me an email in the last day, I didn’t get it. I had to erase my inbox (the post-millennial version of a personal apocalypse). Should be okay now. Or try jntamaki (AT) Shaw (dot) com.

I’m off to Florida for a few days. Yes, Florida. I can hardly believe it myself.

Fan Art Results!

Jun 19th, 2008

That was my response every time someone sent me a piece of fan art. I was totally floored by the effort you guys put into your pieces and I think I am now addicted to getting “presents” in my email. So, THANK-YOU! It was so freaking difficult picking “winners”. But here they are:

Jeremy Sorese, the creator of this particularly hilarious piece (I’ve dubbed it “Window of Indecision (in Grey)”, will get Skim, some buttons, and a Gilded Lilies book.

Annie Wu (above) will receive Skim, buttons, and a small print, as will Thomas Pitilli:

Oof, it was so hard to choose. Please view ALL the entries here. Thank-you to all participats. If you’d like to contribute fan art, even if it’s sans prizes, I’d love to add it to the gallery.

Oh Happy Day

I am getting some AMAZING entries to the Skim Fan Art contest! Details a few posts down.

I am now throwing in some additional prizes. Top three will get the Skim book and Skim buttons. One will get a Gilded Lilies book, and the other two will get a small giclée print.

Tomorrow is the last day to enter.

Occasionally I try to draw without lines, to varying levels of success.

So I have three copies of Skim to give away. We couldn’t sell them at MoCCA due to a tiny bit of cover scuffing, the odd bent cover, or other minor imperfection. So let’s have a little contest!

I’m ripping off Hope Larson’s Fan Art contest she held a few weeks ago for her new book. Send you SKIM-INSPIRED art in to me by Wednesday and I will post the winners (plus a link to your site) on Thursday. I’ll make a little section in the “Books” area of my site where I’ll post ALL entries. I hope you send me something! Email me at jill (AT) jilliantamaki.com …. please?

Here is a preview link, for character reference.

P.S. Everyone’s welcome to send me stuff, but unfortunately I can only send books to North Americans. There IS a recession on, y’all.
