You may remember them from our Thanksgiving Rocksgiving charity concert: Rainbow Danger Club. The local indie band is now hosting a competition to design the cover for their next album, and they’re willing to offer you 1200 RMB if they choose your design!
According to Neocha Edge, they have a general idea in mind and are hoping for someone to bring it to fruit:
* Medium: You are free to use any medium you want like: water-color, painting, collage, photography, illustration, graphic design, etc. (or any combination of these)
Style: Can be simple like a child’s drawing, or can be complex with mixed media….no limits!
* Dimensions: Square
* Art Direction:
* An old sailing ship (simply-drawn) falling off the edge of the earth
* A very, very large moon with stars and clouds in the background
* Design should have an old “vintage” look – like a color illustration from 1850s – 1930s, or an old, weathered photograph
* Have a magical, childish, but somewhat scary feel (the band’s music is a combination of magical, scary stories)

You can listen to their music here for more inspiration. Submissions must be received by February 1, 2011 and can be emailed to [email protected] with “Rainbow Danger Club” in the subject. Though, with the drawing I whipped up (upper right hand corner), I don’t know if anyone else need bother.
