Call for artists – for 2022 CMS tshirt
Are you an Oregon artist with a passion for all things fungal? We are looking for a new design for our 2022 Cascade Mycological Society t-shirt. If selected, your design will be featured on our 2022 t-shirts that make their debut at the Mount Pisgah Arboretum Mushroom Festival in October 2022. Depending on the design, artists will be compensated $150 to $200.
- Last day to submit your design is August 18, 2022.
- The design must include a mushroom that fruits in Oregon.
- Please limit to 5 colors including black and white. Note: More colors add to the cost of printing, so less is better.
- Designs must be of original art (e.g. drawing, painting), no photographs of mushrooms.
- Past designs include Psylocybe Azurescens, Chanterelle, King Bolete, Morel, Shaggy Parasol, Hedgehog, Fly Amanita, Oak Polypore, and Xylaria. Please avoid these.
- Designs may be submitted as a PDF or image (.jpg or.png). Please compress large files.
Traditionally, our t-shirt designs have been of a single mushroom species placed within the CMS “Celtic Circle”; an example is pictured right. The approximate size of the interior of the circle is 6 to 7 inches. If you would like to try your design within the Celtic Circle, you may download the circle here. Your design is not required to be of a single mushroom species that will fit within the CMS Celtic Circle. If you would like to submit a free format, non-traditional design, that is also acceptable.
The t-shirt color is unknown at this point. If selected, your design will be provided to a graphic designer to finalize for printing. If you have questions, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Email your submission to email@example.com. Please state your name in the subject line of the email (Example subject line: T-shirt Art – John Doe). Submit your art as an attachment to your email.
