A chance to paint the cover

ImagineFX - - Imaginenation Letters -

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.
