Dear XX Artists
Since we want to promote the hells out of this magazine— we are announcing a little side project.
We would like YOU artists and collaborators to create some Art XX logos/visual representations. The designs (be it paintings, drawings and other media of your choice) will than be printed as a card with our info on the back side (and your name of course and a website) and be distributed as a promo piece in SF and beyond. Get creative with type, color and materials, we want to see a variety of styles and hands at work.

We are eating the costs of print so technically it is a free ad for you as an artists and for us as a magazine. We sort of comission you...kind of, but it has to somehow say our name ( please recreate our logo in your own way, it doesn’t have to be ours, do your own take on artxx).:)

There will be more than one print run so we will chose more than one artwork, so submit, submit, submit artwork to (with "art XX postcard submission" in the title field)

As a chosen artists you will receive a share of postcards to distribute in your area and to put in your portfolio. Maybe one day these will turn into more than just postcards......

Art Specs:

1. nothing larger than 10 MBS , 5x7 at 300 dpi
2. only jpg, pdf, gif, small tiff, ai and flattened files (rasterized or outlined fonts with digital work)
3. no layered Photoshop or InDesign files please.
4. Include website address if you have one

So keep them coming and have a happy productive Summer!
