TWELVE HOURS REMAIN OF GOBLIN WEEK 2014. A HUGE NUMBER of Goblin-related works are queued up for these last few hours. Thank you everyone for making this by far THE BEST GOBLIN WEEK TO HAVE EVER HAPPENED EVER.
Submissions to the Goblin Week Zine will be open until MONDAY. There are over 100 submissions already, and I think there should be MORE, personally. Thanks everyone!
I will get a couple more goblins drawn to go up during the GRAND FINALE!
Goblin Week 2014 ENDS at MIDNIGHT TOMORROW! At the end of SATURDAY, JANUARY 25! There are currently almost 500 Goblin-related works of art and literature on goblinweek.tumblr.com, with MORE BEING POSTED EVERY HOUR 24 HOURS A DAY.
Submissions are still open for the Goblin Week Zine, and Preorders for same. Because preorders have been lackluster, and submissions have been TRULY EXCELLENT, I have decided to just print a few hundred more of them and have them available for sale online. I hope that is cool with everyone!
HOW MANY MORE GOBLINS CAN WE GET OUT INTO THE WORLD IN THE NEXT 33 HOURS?
A book goblin. I’m one goblin behind my one-a-day goal for goblin week!!! I will try to get another done today.
I am THRILLED at how many spectacular submissions have already been received for the GOBLIN WEEK ZINE. Thank you everyone so far for submitting your words and pictures! I would love to have a pretty wide range of different works, so if you are apprehensive about submitting something I think you should probably… go for it….?
All I ever want to say about goblin week is that I am super excited about how well goblin week is going. Thank you everyone and I’m glad you’re having fun. 60 hours remain, how many goblins can we fit in that time!!!
I AM PUTTING TOGETHER A LIMITED-EDITION PUBLICATION OF GOBLIN WEEK MATERIAL.
Submissions will be accepted DURING GOBLIN WEEK ONLY. The zine can be pre-ordered DURING GOBLIN WEEK ONLY! Let’s see how this goes!
SUBMISSIONS. If you are interested in submitting any art, writing, or printable Goblin-related content, please send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
The content in printable format: 300 to 600 dpi, black and white or grayscale. Images can be spot illustrations on a white background, OR full-page images: pages are 5 by 8 inches, and can be printed to bleed if an extra 1/8 inch margin is given. Two-page spreads are acceptable, but anything more than two pages might not make it in!
If text, you can supply EITHER a correctly-formatted 300 to 600 dpi, 5 by 8 inch image file which includes the text (this would be better), OR just the text itself with any notes as to how you would like it formatted.
Your NAME and any WEBSITE you would like to appear with your credit!
Your MAILING ADDRESS if you would like a few free copies of the finished book sent to you! Everyone who submits will get 2 copies at least!!
Submissions will be CLOSED at the end of JANUARY 25, EST!
This is a fun thing that will get put together in ONE WEEK and sent out probably by March. Everyone who submits will get free copies, but unfortunately I cannot offer payment for submissions!!
PREORDERS: If you would like to purchase the Goblin Week 2014 Zine, it will be available ONLY THIS WEEK, ONLY FOR PREORDER, RIGHT HERE. Only enough books will be printed to cover preorders and free copies for people who submit material. The book will come with several goblin stickers and miscellany by me. Basically as much as I can get done by the time they get printed.
Preorders will be CLOSED at the end of JANUARY 25, EST!
Preordered books should be sent out by MARCH 2014.
I do not know what to expect, but in the spirit of Goblin Week I want to emphasize QUANTITY AND INTENSITY in the contents of this book, and get it out there to everyone in a VERY INTENSE AND LIMITED PERIOD OF TIME.
Future updates about this project will go under the zine tag! OK!!!
So far MANY PEOPLE HAVE MADE EXCELLENT GOBLINS for the occasion, and they are being reblogged regularly at this Goblin Week Tumblr. Use the #goblinweek tag if you would like me to reblog your thing!!! I AM VERY EXCITED TO SEE WHAT THE NEXT SIX DAYS HOLD FOR GOBLIN WEEK.
A thorough explanatory post regarding the GOBLIN WEEK 2014 ZINE will be up tomorrow, but until then: submissions (in black and white, as spot illustrations or as 5x8 inch full pages) will be accepted THIS WEEK ONLY, and the 48-page zine will be available for preorder THIS WEEK ONLY STARTING TOMORROW! More information tomorrow.
Goblin Week is a thing started by me last year as an excuse for frantic and uncritical creativity for myself and others. Goblin Week is the reason for the season.
YOU can participate in Goblin Week, AND IN FACT I INSIST THAT YOU DO. Beginning on JANUARY NINETEENTH and ending on JANUARY TWENTY-FIFTH, you should consider putting into the world as many goblin-related creative items as is feasible for you. The tag #goblinweek is at your disposal on tumblr and on twitter, and both accounts will do their best to publicize the goblin-week-relevant works of all comers.
WHAT DOES “GOBLIN” MEAN TO YOU. GOBLIN WEEK IS ABOUT YOU. FOLLOW YOUR HEART.
ANOTHER THING THAT WILL BE HAPPENING FOR THIS YEAR’S GOBLIN WEEK is the GOBLIN WEEK 2014 ZINE, which will be detailed further in the near future. But broadly: the zine will be available for preorder on Goblin Week and no later. The emphasis as to contents will be on intensity and quantity. Your contributions will be extremely welcome BUT NOT ACCEPTED UNTIL JANUARY NINETEENTH THE FIRST DAY OF GOBLIN WEEK 2014.
WHETHER YOU PARTICIPATE OR NOT I HOPE THIS IS FUN FOR YOU
This was a RESOUNDING SUCCESS. Some hundreds of people drew goblins of all sorts; you can see a bunch of them by tumblr or twitter tag
Next year’s Goblin Week by my reckoning will be January 19 through 25.
THE MORAL OF GOBLIN WEEK IS THIS. It is just a thing I made up as an excuse to draw some fun stuff. You can draw goblins or whatever you want at any time. You can show everybody what you are drawing on the internet. It is great and goblin week can be every week if you want it to be. Long live goblin week.
