1914 Artist Specification


General information for all sketch illustrators:This is part one of our Great War set. The set will cover the build up to the start of the War until 1915, these are very specific dates and our collectors take this seriously. We are looking for wide range of art and styles, from battle images to portraits, homefront, german/american/french perspectives etc so this set will be suitable for a number of different illustrator styles. This was a very gruesome conflict, it was one of the first major conflicts fought with advanced weaponry and it took a heavy toll on the populace and combatants. We are not asking you to shy away from these facts, so illustrate as you feel appropriate.

Please also keep the following in mind: We are looking for period accuracy: This means while you are free to draw images from your imagination or from historical fact, we do request that you stick within the time confines. This means no weird items that didn’t exist, in other words no M16’s, Steampunk, Aliens, Unicorns bla bla bla…. I know this isn’t a big issue but if it’s not on the set spec we will get emails. Also please try to vary your compositions over the cards, if all your art is portraits this will limit the collectability of your art.

We really want to do the subject justice, it’s a fascinating topic with a very rabid collectors market many of which are not traditional card buyers, so we are looking at a crossover market, if you have no interest in history or the Great War then this may not be the set for you. We are looking for people who really know about or want to know about the subject, and it should be a lot of fun to work on. Places are limited and this is going to be one of our flagship products over the next 24-36 months so if you’re interested please get in touch with Liza at cult-stuff.com asap, as blanks are in stock and waiting to ship. We need the cards back by the 30th of September

Remember Collectors like COLOR!
