NEW Echo Chernik Rum Cthulhu pinup on Kickstarter

NEW Echo Chernik Rum Cthulhu pinup on Kickstarter

Click Here to go to the Kickstarter! Hello, my name is Echo Chernik and I am a professional artist with over 24 years experience. You can learn more about me on EchoChernik.com and Echo-X.com. I have successfully used Kickstarter to produce nine (9) original works of art, five (5) books,  four (4) calendars and four card decks. All of them succeeded and have been fulfilled. (Note: Some of my Kickstarters were run on my husband's Kickstarter account as Lazarus Chernik.) This time, I would LOVE to create a tenth new work of art for my Cthulhu Pinup series. You can learn more about that series on EchoChernik.com/collections/cthulhu-giclees.

Illustrators of the Future

Illustrators of the Future

One of the reasons I was gone from DeviantArt for so long was my appointment as the Coordinating Judge for the international Illustrators of the Future competition in Hollywood, CA. For those who don't know - Illustrators of the Future is one of the most reputable competitions for aspiring illustrators in the world. Here is why I think it is the best of all of them: It's free to enter.Submit work you have already done.You keep the copyright of all of your work.Rolling submissions: You can submit every 3 months (but only win once).Twelve winners every year win $500 and a statue.One Grand Prize Winner wins an extra $5,000 and a bigger statue

Echo is Back!

Echo is Back!

Hello all, I'm sorry to have vanished from DeviantArt for so long, but I was buried in commissions for nearly 2 years. Among those projects were: The Name of the Wind Art Decks, which included 32 original paintings of Name of the Wind characters, four vector Aces, two cards backs, two box designs, several vector background designs, and collateral. The Kickstarter was fulfilled in 2018 and you can buy the decks from me: https://www.echochernik.com/collections/games The Shadowrun Sixth World Tarot, which included 79 illustrations and 3 cards backs.
