Call for Selfish Art and Photography

Press News!, Submission Calls

Issue three of Incandescent Mind is looking for selfish art and photography. Artists can send in creative interpretations of the self portrait OR can be included in a special project to create work in response to the selected writings. Incandescent Mind is a full-color print journal, with poetry and prose. We prefer work that is raw, personal, emotional, and/or vulnerable.

Submissions for Art will close April 30th.

Submissions can be taken through this form:
cognitoforms.com/SadieGirlPress1/IncandescentMindSelfishIssue
(If you have trouble, please email us at SadieGirlPress@gmail.com)

We’re looking for art related to the topic of selfish work, possibly self-portraits (realistic or abstract), or other work that reveals your self. This is not limited to a typical face portrait, but can be of other perspectives of the self. It can be yourself at a different age, such as a child or older than you are now. It can reveal alternate versions of yourself. It can be an image that reveals what is inside of you. Feel free to be creative, but we want work that tells a story about you.

We are also looking for artists who would like to create work in reaction to the selected writing pieces. When the final writing pieces have been chosen, you would receive a copy of all the writing. If a piece inspires you, you can create a piece in reaction to it. If you are interested, email us at SadieGirlPress@gmail.com and we will contact you with the details.

We would love paintings, drawings, photography, digital art, collage, etc. in color or black and white, or any mediums that transfer well as a jpg or png file. If you aren’t sure, send us what you have and we’ll let you know! You may submit up to 10 high resolution images (200 dpi). Please include titles with your images (preferably in the file names).

Include a 100-word max, 3rd person bio with website or social media contact information where people can learn more about you.

Artists will retain the rights to their individual work. We do not offer payment other than one complimentary contributor copy.

For more details and updates, please join the Facebook event.

“The first time I saw Esmeralda Villalobos’ artwork I thought it was beautiful, but there is more to her art than just the beauty. There is a narrative that shows an artist of depth who has great respect for the sacred. Ms. Villalobos is an artist who knows herself, her strengths, and how to share her story with us. This collection shares her vision of the world, the way it could be, the way it would be, if we were all as true to our own art, our own vision, as Esmeralda Villalobos is to hers.” -Ann Brantingham, Spout Hill Press

Esmeralda Villalobos is an artist from Guadalajara, Mexico, currently living in Southern California. Her primary media are oils and acrylics, but she also enjoys working in watercolors, ink, and other mixed media. As far as her painting style is concerned, she feels that experimenting with different forms—surrealism, abstract expressionism, realism—is one of the greatest freedoms an artist has. She believes that working in different styles and media keeps her interested, engaged, and helps to expand her creativity. She is the cover artist of five books for Sadie Girl Press; Cadence Collective Anthology: Year One and Year Two, All the Tiny Anchors, Unanchored, and Born to Electrify, as well as contributing artist to CadenceCollective.net, Like a Girl: Perspectives on Feminine Identity and Then & Now:Conversations with Old Friends. Her artbook, Artwork by Esmeralda Villalobos, is available for purchase at the SGP bookstore. Follow her on Facebook.com/artworkbyesmeraldavg.
