Estrella War Gatebook art

The organizers of the 2011 Estrella War are seeking artwork for the event's gatebook.

The Tradition of Estrella War continues for 2011 with Estrella XXVII. Another tradition of Estrella is the event gatebook  which contains all the information attendees need to enjoy Estrella to its fullest; this is given to everyone who attends.

For 2011 we are seeking cover art and small designs to feature throughout the book. We want to give artists from all attending Kingdoms multiple opportunities to have their work published.

This Estrella will see the Principal Kingdoms of Atenveldt and Outlands come together to meet, greet and compete in the great game of the SCA. Every book is judged by its cover and this is your chance to have your artwork seen by a 3000+ audience.

Art specifications are listed below. If you have any questions please contact the Estrella Gatebook editor, Dame Anita de Challis, at gatebook@estrellawar.org
