Dear South African Illustrators On The Come-Up, How Dope Are You?
Very? Then this is right up your alley!
MTV Breaks (platform that offes budding creatives their first breaks – on a global scale) is searching for creative illustrators and colourists to translate the multi-award winning television drama, MTV Shuga into a unique and original comic book.
The new season of Shuga, set in South Africa and aptly titled MTV Shuga: Down South has reportedly, “taken SA by storm”. But, where’s the fun in a storm without special people?
That’s where talented blossoming talent comes in. If you’re South African, aged between 18-26, haven’t worked professionally as an illustrator before but got mad skills, this could be your big break.
All you need to do? Draw one of the MTV Shuga: Down South characters and upload it to Instagram, using the hashtag #MTVShugaComicBook (this is waaaay too long I’m afraid). Entries, however, close on June 8th, 2017.
Get your work chosen by the judges and you stand the chance to get your work produced on an original MTV Shuga comic. What’s more? Win and you’ll earn R5,000 ($388) towards your tuition. All this for your hard work and creative genius!
What’s more, more? You get to be mentored by none other than Kwezi comic book creator and fine artist extraordinaire, Loyiso Mkize!
To get in on the action or find extra info, visit MTV Shuga: Down South or MTV Breaks TV. Alternatively, connect with them on Facebook or on Twitter.
