As we stated in a previous post, Leigh Bardugo will be at the Barnes & Noble book store at the Grove in Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 26th, with Legend author Marie Lu, Avatar and Legend of Korra creator Mike DiMartino, and The Walking Dead Co-EP Seth Hoffman. If you’re attending (which I hope to try myself) and you like drawing, then you might be interested in this contest by New Leaf Literary:
Hello Fellow Tumblrites! We here at New Leaf had an AWESOME idea that spawned from an AWESOME event that is happening next week (I seriously can’t wait—the fangirl in me is wigging out!). You see, creative geniuses Michael DiMartino, Marie Lu, Seth Hoffman and Leigh Bardugo are getting together on a panel to discuss the incredibly rich worlds that they have worked on…(you might recognize some of these)
….and how their work and/or creative processes have evolved in the age of social media—where fans have direct access to the artists they admire and have the resources to create fantastic art and stories inspired by others. (Which is, in my opinion, freaking awesome.) So in turn, we had an idea that involves the amazing and talented fans out there: a tumblr fanart contest!
Using the hashtag #PowerofFandom we invite you to create a piece of fanart that encompasses something from each of the panelists’ work. Be creative! Make it fun! Anyone can enter!
How cool is that?! Of course, this type of crossover may need some out-there creativity, as you it’s not generally known that characters from Avatar or Legend of Korra frequent the lots of The Walking Dead. However, artists tend to have a very creative mind anyway.
So, get at it, and post it on Tumblr! They might get it signed for you and even shower you with other gifts as well. Who knows when it comes to these authors.
For all the details about the contest, go here.
