I just did a shout out on Instagram about finding artists and illustrators to feature for Pikaland’s gift guide this year (I think it should read 2014, not 2015, doh!) So if you know of any artists who self publishes on Amazon, Etsy, Lulu, Blurb, etc,; any kind of books – comics, zines, self-help, guides, stories, random stuff, etc feel free to send your recommendations over to be considered!
I think it could be an interesting, unconventional gift guide – it’s the kind of guide I’d definitely pick up myself (oh, because I’m obsessed with zines and books, if you haven’t noticed already!) so I’d appreciate any leads you have to share! I was planning on doing one on books and then the idea of having a listing of lesser-known authors/artists hit me a couple of days ago. I think it would be refreshing to provide some counter-balance to the whole spirit of Christmas consumerism and to spread some joy in the form of lovely surprises, which can often be found in the least unexpected of places.
I’ll be doing up the gift guide next week, so for any recommendations, you can email them as soon as you can to me at AMY @ PIKALAND . COM (remember to lose the spaces between characters before hitting “send”!)
