Hello there,

         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!

:bulletred: 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.

:bulletorange: Include your real name & your real age. If you do not, we will simply include you as anonymous.

:bulletyellow: To help support the Artbook in more than one way, please donate :points:'s to StudioFireboltt (my personal account) and I will be using the points to help make #Marker-Madness a Super Group.

:bulletgreen: Remember to chat in our MadnessMember Chatroom!

:bulletblue: Stay active within the group. Spread the word to others who you think would join. We need everyone we can get!

:bulletpurple: If you're on Facebook :facebook: please like us to receive instant updates!

:bulletpink: If you have any questions please don't hesitate. If you have ideas too, please message me! I am eager to hear what you have to say.

:hug: I hope to see all your amazing art below this Journal. I thank you in advance for letting me use your work in this book. :hug:

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 - StudioFireboltt

Thank you, I hope to hear from you.

Hello c: I just joined this group. I think it's awesome, and I LOVE using markers <3

So here are two of my marker artworks:

My Protector by RunsOnPixiStix Fanciful Dresses and Whimsical Books by RunsOnPixiStix

I can send you the high-resolution files if you'd like? I scan them at 300 dpi. Please let me know where I can send them.

Name: Monique Wiegand

Age: 18

I've been drawing ever since I can remember, and along the way, experimenting with as many different media as I possibly can. My favorites have always been traditional media. There's just something about putting a pencil to paper and watching a blank sheet come to life before my eyes that holds a certain amount of magic that digital media could never live up to. I recently started playing with markers in between projects - and before I knew it, I was hooked. Markers are just so much fun and versatile! I don't think I'll be putting them down anytime soon.

i am sorry, but we won't go through it personally. it's totally preference from the artist's point of view as to what they might include.

Is it still possible to enter? ^^'' This would be my work:

Enrica Angiolini A.K.A. Eren (or Eeren on deviantART), 25 years old, Italy.
I fell in love with drawing when I was a little child and traditional medias where of course my first approach to art. I loved crayons and markers, and since my parents worked in graphic design we had a whole bag full of copics, even of the old kind. I adored them, but I only understood their true beauty later on, during my last years of High School when I first tried the "new generation" of copics and I went crazy for them. When I went to live in Japan for 3 months -nearly 4 years ago- I saved some of my salary money to buy all the copics I could! Thanks for reading and viewing my work! <3 CIAO!

We definitely are still accepting. We still need 50+ more submissions, so tell your friends/watchers?!

Thank you so much for participating !! :)
Eeren Jan 6, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I will!! :) ^O^
I'll soon make a journal about it! ;)

Valtteri Kuusisto (TurqouiseInk), 19 yearls old.

Drawing has always been a passion of mine, and copics were something I had thought for a long time. Though they were quite expensive, I never regret getting them. It has been 2 years since I bought them, and they still are one of my favourite way of coloring. I wish to become a mangaka when I'm older, and Arina Tanemura is my favourite mangaka! These 2 works feature a boy and a girl, and are quite different in styles. I must admit, I prefer drawing girls, haha! Oh yea, these illustrations are Misfortune and Shreded. Try quessing which is which!
Thank you for viewing my art!

Ah I made it in time! ^^
The download files are huge on my works, but I hope it results in a better quality, right?
