*** IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT BELOW - UPDATED JUNE 3, 2013 ***
First of all, I'd like to officially introduce myself. My name is Cameron Paris, 22 - and I am a self taught graphic designer who has created multiple working websites, logos, t-shirts, business cards, animated shorts and more. I am addicted to making art on the computer, with markers, and several other techniques. I love helping people find their inner imaginations. But this task is something I cannot do alone, nor is the one I am about to present to you.
For the next couple months, I am asking you all to donate pieces of your art to the '#Marker-Madness 2013 Artbook'. The Artbook will consist of marker pieces completed by you as you will be credited in the Artbook. It doesn't matter when the piece was created, as long as it was created by you. As many as two submissions per artist, a page in the Artbook will feature your works with a space where you can write a personal bio about how marker art has affected your creativity, or how you first got into making art with markers.
Our sole focus with this Artbook is markers. In this day and age, I feel marker art is more important than ever. The digital era is stomping most traditional techniques - featuring options that mock markers & other popular art supplies through brushes. We need to come together as marker artists, and show the community that marker art is worth the patience and practice just as any other technique is worth. Coming together to talk about our art is one of the only ways to do this. The other way is when we come together to make something to show others. This is where you come in.
I will be making a Kickstarter once we reach 100 marker submissions.
We will only be accepting 130 submissions, so be sure to submit NOW to reserve your spot! We're at 51 so far!
To submit, simply link your art piece(s) below, and be sure to include your bio/first experience with markers. If you don't want to include anything with your submission simply leave it blank.
Include your real name & your real age. If you do not, we will simply include you as anonymous.
To help support the Artbook in more than one way, please donate 's to blaaaaakk (my personal account) and I will be using the points to help make #Marker-Madness a Super Group.

I'm sorry this hasn't crossed my mind until recent.. But I totally spaced the Rules for Copyrighted material (i.e. copyrighted characters & designs)
I regret to inform you if you have submitted copyrighted material, you WILL have to change your submissions to something originally created by YOU. This art book is all about art creation, not art style duplication/fan artists. Yes, there is a time and place for fan art, but this art book is NOT the place.
To those who have not submitted copyrighted material, your content will not stricken from the Marker Madness 2013 Art Book.
To change your copyrighted submission(s) simply reply to your original comment ON THIS JOURNAL and I will automatically replace your art with the new links.
Again, I am extremely sorry for any inconveniences this may cause, but I won't be able to print this Art Book if it contains copyrighted materials. I hope this switch goes smoothly, and if you have ANY questions, please PM me on my personal account - blaaaaakk
Thank you, I hope to hear from you.
