A little while back Neil Gaiman asked readers for their ideas as he set out to write 12 short stories, one for each month of the year. Now he’s reaching out to readers again for the art to illustrate his words. The selected art will be included in a limited edition calender with his stories.
If you have a talent for art – or just a desire to read some new Gaiman stories – head to his Blackberry page: http://keepmoving.blackberry.com/desktop/en/us/ambassador/neil-gaiman.html?CPID=E70C215#. There you can download the stories, check out the art already submitted, and upload your own. And definitely watch the videos of Gaiman talking about the project. They yield a great deal of insight into how he views art and the creative process and they might inspire you to look at art from a different perspective. Or they might just inspire you.
