Week one-fourty-five of Operation Graphite – theme: Heavy Metal.

Shock - Marooned

Back in the 80’s and 90’s, Heavy Metal was pretty much everything a geeky thirteen year old wanted in a magazine. While boobs and swords were certainly the main draw, it was also a bastion for very weird stories that few other publishers would print. Heavy Metal is not much more than a whisper of its howling past, but much of the dark and gritty sci-fi and fantasy today has a little bit of heavy metal in their DNA.

A comic anthology with so many bare breasts, it had to be created by the French; Métal Hurlant (Screaming Metal) was introduced in the United States in 1977 under the name, Heavy Metal. Artists such a Moebius, Philippe Druillet, and H.R. Giger, along with Writers such as Harlan Ellison and Alejandro Jodorowsky have contributed to the magazine. While many might recognize the magazine for its cheesy, and often sexist illustrations, after you scratch the surface, Heavy Metal has showcased some amazing illustrators, and the strangest, and darkest Sci-Fi and fantasy stories out there.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: Heavy Metal.

All art work is due on Thursday, 12.11.14 Submissions will be published the following Friday, 12.12.14.

Part of our land navigation training will not only include the how to use a lensaic compass, but map making will also be important. When exploring a fantastical realm, one needs to keep their bearings. That is why we are tasked with creating a map of a fantasy world. Take any of the places you have traveled, whether in novel, dream, or digital simulation. Create a map for the next person who happens to journey to that land.

Please submit a drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media that fits the theme, Fantastical Cartography.

All art work is due on Thursday 5.16.13. Submissions will be published the following Friday 5.17.13.

 

Week thirty six of Operation Graphite – Theme: Classic Villain Reimagined.

The classics seem to be reimagined, in one way or another, time and time again. Whether set in a different world or time period, it is always the characters who are the anchor to the source material. Change an outfit or the technology used, and the core of that hero or villain will aways come through.

Contributing Villains

bruku – The Devil

kalebschad – Mummy Bear

Shock – Punk Hook

Thank you for contributing.

The theme selected for week thirty six of Operation Graphite will be: Classic Villain Reimagined.

Classic Villains – either updated, given a new twist, or imagined in a different universe; it’s a popular exercise for character designers. It is fun to imagine Dr. Doom in the old west, or have Darth Vader be all Steampunked out. This week we will take any Classic Villain from fiction, update, reimagine, or take them to a place they have never been before. It can be as simple as the Wicked Witch of the West as a pin up girl, or as crazy as futuristic, cyborg Cthulhu.

Please submit a drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, of your Classic Villain.

All art work is due on Thursday 10.11.12. Submissions will be published the following Friday 10.12.12.
