I thought a really pragmatic use for this blog might be to post about any worthy solicitations for submissions we come across. We're all at least somewhat interested in being published, no? Our own dear Limey Zeke alerted me to this little UK outfit called Paper Tiger, who're looking for contributior to their decidedly underground anthologies. They seem to have a kind of punk edge to them , which I'm not interested in. Good thing its tempered with stuff like cool painted covers like this here:
Anyhow, I submitted a drawing and the editor, Sean, accepted it.
The deal is pretty standard; one time use, no pay, etc. The only thing I find lacking in our arrangement is that I was told they could not afford to send each contributor a copy, which seems odd..*
It doesn't bother me too much though.
He's listed a few other anthologies as works in progress. I'm sure he wouldn't mind looking at a few jpegs you send his way.
Have you been solicited for submissions recently?
Should we put together our own anthology?
The above-mentioned Sean has alerted me to his plans to provide a comp. copy for each contributor. Please keep this in mind.
Oh, and, thanks Sean.***

Another addendum/email from Sean:
"Hi Luke, I saw the blog entry on eatenbyducks.com for War/ paper Tiger, thanks for putting it on there, but I wondered if you could please make two changes. Firstly, all contributors will get a free complimentary copy of any anthologies they submit to, but i may have to ask half of the shipping costs for overseas contributors ....Also, could you mention that the deadlines for Paper Tiger Comix 4 and WAR is February 15th, and that the website hasn't been updated in a while so all enquiries should come through me
