The Spontoon Island website posts "Speed Week" stories and art on a 30s racing theme each year at the end of August, and continues racing uploads through the first week of September: Here's a contents page for the previous contributions:spontoon.rootoon.com/SPwRacCn.…
We'd be happy to add more art and stories to this air-racing section of the website!
"Spontoon Island" is a co-op art & story archive set in the 1930s on an alternate version of our world. The population is anthropomorphic-animal toons to funny-animal furry, depending on the contributor's style. The location is a small independent nation of Pacific Ocean islands. Think of "Miyazaki anime" meets "TaleSpin" meets "Blacksad"... but this is not a fan-art web-site. Characters should be original to the contributor.
The Spontoon Island website will celebrate "Speed Week" starting 24 August. The site would be happy to repost images of 1930s racing vehicles on a tropical island, including racing seaplanes, 1930s motorcycle races, and similar racing contests. Also welcome would be images of visitors watching the racing, locals managing the races, mechanics at work, & pilots. Original aircraft designs are welcome, and designs based on historical aircraft.
Text stories set during the air races or the racing festival in this 1930s Pacific island setting are also welcome.
Rating is PG to (mild) Mature.
Your own original characters are welcome to visit the Speedweek festival. (We wish to avoid publishing corporate-owned characters.) Reposts of your previously-published art and your own characters are okay (if they fit the theme). You keep your copyrights, and we will give credit to you as a contributing creator and offer text links to your own archive.
