VIZ media is looking for visual, graphic and manga/comic-inspired artists to submit original work and participate in Art for Hope, a special limited edition digital art book anthology, to be sold through VIZManga.com and the VIZ Manga App for iOS devices.
One hundred percent of the net proceeds of Art for Hope will go toward supporting ongoing disaster relief efforts in Japan. Parts of the country were severely damaged by a March 11 earthquake off the cost of Tohoku and have yet to fully recover.
Artists interested in submitting work to be considered for the collection can get the full details at www.viz.com/artforhope. The deadline is September 15th.
All of the artwork for the Art for Hope collection will be rendered using Autodesk SketchBook® digital paint and drawing software applications. Partners in the project include Autodesk, Inc., a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software.
VIZ Media’s editors will work with Autodesk to review and select works for inclusion in the digital anthology, which will be released later this fall.
