Creative fanworks challenge for The Sentinel fandom

Mini Bang Artist Claims

It’s artist claim time!

We have a massive thirteen projects for our artists to choose from. All are fiction this time around, and we’ve got a nice mix of genres – gen and slash, humour and drama, crossovers, AUs and PWPs. Hopefully you’ll all be inspired!

As this is a mini bang, artists are asked to provide just a single piece of art to go with each story. You may make multiple presentations – for example a cover, banner and icons – but all must be from a single base image. All stories are 10,000 words or less.

How to claim a project

The projects are listed below. You must give at least three choices of project – this is just to cover me in case everyone wants the same one – and you can list up to five choices, or six if you’re offering to illustrate more than one project. We don’t have a lot of artists signed up, so you may claim two projects in round one if you want to.

I’ll do my best to give everyone their first choice, but no guarantees as it depends on everyone else’s choices, so please give some thought to your selections.

Please leave a comment here, in our LJ community or on the mailing list with your claim, using the format:

I will provide art for [number] projects.

(additional author notes) Beta’ed by Bluewolf. She’s a star.
This story was inspired by me thinking about the old Road Runner cartoons. Remember how hard Wile E.Coyote worked to catch the Road Runner, and how he always got it wrong and his schemes backfired on him? Well, think of Jim as the coyote, out to teach that pesky roadrunner, Blair, some lessons about life.
No actual coyotes, roadrunners, or cartoons are mentioned in the story.
