Bad Art Contest: Giant Monsters, Robots, and Kaiju

by Karl Fischer
with special guest S.T. Cartledge

Everyone loves giant monsters and things. If they say they don't, they're fucking liars. Another thing that people love is crude, ridiculous artwork. Like this:

See that? That's the fucking Mona Lisa. Do you have any idea how much people will fork over to see that thing in person? It's a lot. The Mona Lisa is a French icon, and the French invented cream and fried potatoes, so they're not exactly smashing rocks together.

The point is, anyone can be an artist, and everyone wants to draw giant monsters for a living. Now, I can't afford to pay people to draw giant monsters, but what I CAN do is give away books. Specifically, me and Australian author, S.T. Cartledge, will give away copies of our giant monster books, FREE, to those who participate. That's right, bungholes. For one piece of artwork, you can now receive two books in digital format: TOWERS and KAIJU CANYON.

How to Participate:
From now till the end of August, all you have to do is send an ORIGINAL, horrible piece of artwork to everybodyco@gmail.com. It can depict anything, so long as "anything" constitutes a giant monster, giant robot, or some other mysterious, gargantuan creature wrecking havoc. Be sure to include a title and an official artist's statement. Once submitted and scanned for copypasta, your contribution to the visual arts will be featured on the blog and you will receive both books in whatever digital format you desire (please specify).

Not only that, but at the end of August, one lucky participant will be chosen by Shane and I as the best of the worst. This individual will then receive a giant monster goody bag filled with splendors and surprises. We might even throw in this piece of gum! When submitting be sure to include BAD ART CONTEST in the subject line.

About the Books:

Towers, by Karl Fischer

When we are locked inside ourselves, nothing outside could be worse.

After fighting giant monsters for a thousand years, a sentient guard tower is set to go to heaven with his soulmate. But for reasons unknown, the lovers are reborn as lowly humans living inside the Towers they once operated. Separated by thousands of miles and trapped within menageries of horror, only a profound transformation of mind and body can reunite them.

Kaiju Canyon, by S.T. Cartledge

When a hunting expedition goes missing during a freak earthquake in the Australian Outback, the Alice Springs Police Department sends out a search team to find the missing hunters. Instead, the rescue party discovers a newly-formed canyon in the heart of the Outback. 

Nothing could have prepared them for the horror that awaits them as they find themselves besieged by gigantic flying monsters and mutant lizards. 

Kaiju Canyon is an action packed journey into primordial terror, where every step you take may be your last.
