Sticker Club Guest Artists

STATUS: SLOTS CLOSED

Hiya! Now and then I’m looking for guest artists for my Pokémon Sticker Club. This is the page where artists can apply.

It is currently unknown when slots open in the future, so please don’t apply when slots are closed. I don’t accept or keep track of unsolicited applications. Artists won’t be selected consecutively, so if you weren’t picked this time you’re very welcome to try again next time slots open!

HOW THIS WORKS
Each month my Sticker Club members on Ko-fi receive a mini print + stickers set, usually themed around 2 Pokémon and a food & drink pairing.
During guest artist months members receive limited sets containing bonus stickers at no additional cost. This includes already existing members. Which means that if there are 40 bonus sets but there are already 30 members, 10 new members can receive the bonus set.
Guest artists provide artwork, which will be ordered and paid for as stickers by me. During the month there will be shoutouts to the artists.

🖐WHAT I NEED FROM YOU
1) A sticker design in your style, featuring Pokémon with food/drink of the month. Subject preferences can be picked in the application form. Keep in mind you’ll be designing a sticker without special effects and there will be a white border (you can add your name in the border, if you want). After the month ends you’re free to reuse the design for your own purposes, so I would appreciate designs that are newly created over already existing designs with some food slapped into their hands. 😉🙏
Size: At least 5 x 5 cm but a bigger file is better
Format: 300 dpi / CMYK / PSD, PDF or PNG
Please flatten all Layers in your artwork and keep the background transparent!

2) Promo material like business cards, flyers, etc (maximum size A6) that advertises your own art, around 40 pieces. Feel free to promote your own patreon/pin club/etc! You can give these to me at a con or send them per post. Otherwise I can also print out basic notes with your socials.
Leftovers can be sent back to you; otherwise I’ll put them in my online orders as extra advertisement.

🤝WHAT YOU GET
Because this is still a tiny project and I’m paying the sticker production, no monetary compensation is planned for now. Each participating artist will be sent 5 bonus sets and any leftover stickers to keep, sell or raffle as they wish, AFTER the month has ended.
