A chance to paint the cover
I’m a freelance illustrator and for the past three years I’ve subscribed to ImagineFX magazine.
The first issue I bought was the Star Wars issue. I was on a beach in Morocco and after reading it I had to get back home and start painting digitally. This magazine made me take my art seriously and opened up a whole new world of possibilities through the digital medium.
I’m writing to see if ImagineFX would be interested in doing a cover art competition for a future issue. We see many talented established artist contributing each month. There’s so much undiscovered talent out there waiting for such an opportunity. I believe that the subject should reflect what the magazine is about – fantasy and sci-fi – and combine the two. It should be something original, rather than fan art.
Thanks for such a great magazine and for taking the time to read this. Randy Debono, via email Claire replies Thanks for emailing in, Randy. I love the idea for a cover competition, so I’ll keep it in mind for a later issue. However, if there are any artists out there who think their art should grace the cover on ImagineFX, don’t wait for a competition – just email me!
Our Star Wars issue from autumn 2011 inspired Randy to start painting digitally.
