Anthology *should* go to the printers today! The cover file has its ISBN and GRcode and everything. :) It is SO pretty. We're also 1 vote from our banner showing at topwebfiction: vote here!
$761 / $900 total funding by June 2011. 85% done! If we haven't made this goal, the December 2011 issue will be our last!
We're making really good progress, but EMG-Zine is not safe yet! Any funds that go over our goal go directly towards site improvements (there are so many I want to do!).
Additionally, we have 7 artwork submissions for our jewels-themed issue; if we get to 12 (limit 2 per person!), I will program in better artwork pages at the site for that issue! Submit here: http://emg-zine.com/submitart.php
My next priority once these files go to press! Our next milestone is payment tracking features:
$85.00 / $250 for payment tracking and escrow services. 34% done!
The partial donation option was a modest success! Artists have gone home with $183 so far, and the Sketch Fest webpage fund got enough to add a few more features to make the whole system a little more streamlined before the next Fest (plus some towards Commission-Control, already figured above). Specifically, people who left a prompt will get first shot at buying the pieces created for them, with a 1 hour hold and email alert.
There is still a good selection of work available! These are a few of my favorites:
Let's not forget to be working on Arabian Nights themed work! See all the current coloring books here.
The queue is empty! Are you brave enough to submit your portfolio?
