Time to celebrate and thank you guys for your support and encouragement.

We are inviting artists, photographers, and anyone else to post images of one of our Blind Sight characters to go in a gallery on the blog and on Facebook.  One submission has the potential to be printed on a t-shirt.

Odette Reyes is the main character whose story spans both volumes of the first book. Blind from birth, her ability to draw is abnormal even for the magical world of Edaion where she and her brother find themselves after mysteriously ripped from their life in Spain. Our first gallery is going to be dedicated to her.

The contest:
Odette is a sixteen year old with straight medium brown hair that falls just past her shoulders. Freckles cross her nose and cheeks on an olive skin tone and we would like her blindfolded.  Abstract images and photography are encouraged as much as realism. For an optional challenge, you may draw eyes over the blindfold as if embroidered or printed on the fabric.  Your submission may be in any medium and does not need to be in color.  Submissions for the contest end November 5th but submissions for the galleries will always be welcome.  All submissions will be posted to the blog and Facebook galleries and one winner will have the option of having their design on Blind Sight merchandise.

To start us off, here is a sketch by Eliabeth drawn from photography by Ermisenda.

The rules:

  • Must be original work.
  • You must have the rights to post the work and by submitting it, you give us permission to use it in the gallaries.
  • Post links to images as comments with a name or username which you would like credited and a link to your blog or Facebook page if you would like it posted.  If you need a site to upload the images to, try tinypic or photobucket.
  • The winner is not obligated to let us use the design for anything but the galleries.
  • by submitting your work, you agree to all of the terms above and may not withdraw your submission once it has been posted.
We look forward to your submissions!
