The great Minutemen album “Double Nickels on the Dime" was released 30 years ago this summer. I’m putting together a tribute comics anthology and want to invite you to participate.
DEADLINE: All files to email@example.com by JULY 5, 2014
GIG: 2-5 pages (ask me for more if needed), 5.5 x 8.5. in. each, no bleed (leave about 3/8 inch all around) black and white, tones ok. We’ll be printing this “econo” (Minutemen style) so don’t get too fancy. Send me 300 dpi tiffs or jpegs. Dropbox links ok. If you make weird stuff, email me and we’ll figure out how to get it in this thing. There’s room in the van for all kinds of craziness.
SPIEL: Base your piece on a song from “Double Nickels on the Dime.” See track list. It would be cool to use lyrics as words but we’re not demanding that.
UPDATE: We pretty much have all the songs covered now, but email me if you still want to participate - maybe we can work something out. You don’t need to use all the words but do something that is a translation, a tribute, a version, a cover. Please don’t just illustrate, make something new.
MERSH: You get $5/page + your % of net profits after that is paid off + 5 copies. Price will depend on how much stuff we get. If we get too much I’ll split it into two books! Like a double album!
Email me with questions etc. This project is open to anyone anywhere so feel free to pass it along. We plan to have the book printed and released at SPX this fall.
LET’S MAKE WATT AND HURLEY PROUD! Also D. Boon, RIP.
