Cool Artwork Required

APoV needs you!

Specifically, it needs artists to create the following:

A collage of Amiga gaming imagery: screens, machines, game controllers, game characters.

An image to go at the top of the letters pages. As our 'letters' are going to be emails, something representing electronic correspondence would be cool. All glowing lines and 1s and 0s, that sort of thing.

Any original artwork that alludes to gaming and/or 'action' or 'fantasy' (akin to Oliver Frey's work for Crash and Zzap!). This could be used as a background to specific things such as a reader games chart, for example, as well as being sprinkled around the mag to liven pages up. Large or small, all welcome.

Work can be computer-created or scanned hand-drawn art.

Please send artwork to cornflake @ abime.net

Yes, good idea.

The covers for the first two issues have been taken care of, but work to use for future issues is more than welcome.

The first two covers are based on features within the respective issues, but we intend to be flexible with regard to cover art - covers won't necessarily be tied in like this every time.

In other words, anything goes.

Ah shite, I wanted to do one for issue 2.. That's why I asked CodyJ about that issue's main feature.

Oh its not set in stone is it? Hell i forget whether issue 2 is Team17 or Bullfrog these days. Besides, any covers i do could always be used inside for the beginning of the article instead.

Absolutely. The use of artwork is not set in stone by any means.

More than one piece of artwork would actually be very useful for things such as the feature on Bullfrog, so new material is more than welcome. If a new piece would work better as the cover, we'll use it as the cover.
