This year was (is) to be the first year of the DarkZel Scholarship for young artists interested in the field of science fiction and fantasy.
The idea is to create a self-sustaining, yearly scholarship with which I can help out young artists in high school, college and university with money, expose their talent to the RPG community and maybe help them get started on a career.
My ability to publicise is limited, but despite publicity on social media and on some websites – such as BleedingCool – the response has been disappointing in the extreme. I have had one query and no entries.
Two weeks remain, the money pot is up to – close to – $300 now. A single piece of work is all that’s needed.
Please pass on this information, tell your friends, tell your kids if they’re artistically inclined.
I need your help to make this happen.
I really want to commemorate my friend and continue paying forward into the future and helping – and spotting – young talent.
