I came up with a really fun idea yesterday and can’t wait for all of your responses. Today starts the official Grey Ghost Art Project!
Can you Draw? Doodle? Paint? Make amazing Macaroni & Glue pictures? Then this is the contest for you!
One of the fun aspects for me during the writing process for the first novel was taking a break every now and then and working on other parts of the book i.e. the cover, chapter art, Vindicator newspaper’s etc. And while I love that part of the process and I am hard at work on new pieces for the second book, I would really love to see other people’s interpretations of our Ghostly Hero. It’s one of my favorite parts of books; everyone envisions things just a little differently when they read it. And a different view on the Grey Ghost will work perfectly for the new story.
So here you have it Grey-Ghosters, here is your chance to have your art immortalized (haha dramatic much!) in the second novel of the Grey Ghost. You’ve seen little sketches, doodles, covers, paintings, photos and full descriptions in the first novel of what our hero looks like to me but maybe you saw him in your mind a little different, well then, let’s see it!
All I ask is you keep to the feel and good spirited nature of the little world I created. More Clayton Moore’s Lone Ranger than say Frank Milller’s 300.
You can use any media: paint, pencil, markers, crayon, back of a napkin, go crazy! And this contest is open to any level of artist, at any age! (I know I would’ve looked something like this back when I was in school, so tell your kids, grand kids, nieces and nephews!) I will be picking at least two entries as winners. These winning entries will be used as art in the next novel and the artist will be credited in a special “thank you” page in the novel.
Oh and all winning artists will receive a free autographed copy of The Grey Ghost: The Jeweled Kiss Mysteries upon its release. <- Pretty Cool!
I will be putting all entries here on NicholasCara.com and on the Nicholas Cara Facebook page in a special ‘Grey Ghost Art Project’ folder. As of right now there is no end date set for the contest because I know good art takes time but get working Grey-Ghosters!
To enter send your pieces as an attachment to:
Please include your name, address, and email so I can get back to you in case you win.
Thanks and get drawing Grey-Ghosters!
