LomoAmigo Update: A Calendar of Tales by Neil Gaiman and You

2013-02-20

Want a chance to have your artwork or photograph illustrate one of Neil Gaiman’s short stories? Well, this might be the perfect chance for you!

Earlier this month, the prolific author (as well as one-time LomoAmigo) Neil Gaiman revealed his role as an ambassador for the mobile company Blackberry, as well as his new writing project, A Calendar of Tales.

Ever the collaborator, Gaiman asked a series of twelve questions (representing the twelve months) on his Twitter account, and encouraged everyone to answer them. He then chose one corresponding answer for each that will serve as the inspiration for the stories in A Calendar of Tales.

And now that he is done writing all twelve fictions, he is now on the lookout for the perfect artwork or photo to illustrate them.

To give you an idea, here are some of the questions that he asked, as well as the answers that inspired him:

Why is January so dangerous?
“Because an aging veteran just retired, to be replaced by a dangerously unqualified youth, no more than a babe in arms.” – @zyblonius

Where would you spend a perfect June?
“A refrigerator. Summertime always makes me wish they’d make large refrigerators that people could squeeze in.” – @DKSakar

What would you burn in November, if you could?
“My medical records, but only if that would make it all go away.” – @MeiLinMiranda

You can read the full details as well as the whole Calendar of Tales here.
