Design Week 2009 Graphic Novel

“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
Arthur C. Clarke.

Design Week comes to Waterford City for the 1st time! In the spirit of creativity, our aim is to showcase the incredible talent of contemporary Irish Illustrators. We are calling for entries to contribute to a limited edition printed graphic novel on the above theme.

The theme of this graphic novel is to get an illustrated take on spirituality, religion, science and everything in between. Participants are asked to contribute a 2,3 or 6 pages max story / comic strip about their opinions, beliefs, non beliefs, paranormal or scientific. The selected stories will be published in a limited edition graphic novel.

The topic is quite wide so all ideas welcome no matter how bizarre, although in the event of a large amount of submissions, selections will have to be narrowed down. The end result will be a printed book based on the contributions.
