Webcomic Blind Date

Sign-up is open until Jan 19th, 2014!

Valentine’s Day is coming up, and we have revitalized “Blind Date” project that Xavier Xerexes (of ComixTalk) had originally created. The way that Webcomic Blind Date will work, is that people will email us (at webcomicbeacon@gmail.com) as either a comic WRITER, a comic ARTIST, or as BOTH (with preference, if any).

The idea is to pair writers and artists with each other as a “blind date”, and then they are to create a valentines day comic (including single panels) in time for Valentine’s day. We will, in turn, link to all completed products on our site, to where ever the artist/writer teams post theirs.

We tried something similar with the Webcomic Secret Santa, and I would like to find more seasonal art exchanges, or other projects like this throughout the year!

Please email us by January 19th, 2014 (maybe be extended an additional week), indicating that you are a Writer, Artist, or if you can do either (this will help in the imbalance of entries). Also include if you have any restrictions (such as you can’t work over a PG rating, etc), or any other sort of things you want us to take into consideration. The idea is that the writer would write the comic (or single panel), and the artist would draw it. In the end you will have to work together. We will announce and post the pairings on the website, and also will like the links to the final products in time for Valentine’s Day!

By DEFAULT, the end result should be PG or less.
