What Makes this event different?

This latest edition, accompanied by the original 1818 text, will reflect different styles, mediums and interpretations instead of using one illustrator’s style throughout the book. Artists whose artwork is used will receive a portion of proceeds from the sale of books and in various media.

Copyright Policy

Artists appearing in the books will retain the rights to their work, granting SMC! provisional rights.

SuperMonsterCity! (SMC!) is celebrating the 200th anniversary of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley’s novel, “Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus” by publishing a newly designed printing of the original 1818 text. Artists of various mediums, including traditional and digital, are asked to create and submit artwork representing his or her interpretation of a section of the famous science fiction novel. Artwork will be selected through a submission and jury process. 

Contemporary artists, illustrators and designers can use any of the messages and themes present in the novel or thoughts and emotions shaped from the novel to inspire and create their own original art. 

The winning artwork will be announced January 2018, followed by the release of the redesigned book. Two types of books will be produced: a limited-edition leather-covered hand bound with color plates and a print-on-demand hard or cover book with color or black and white plates.

The esteemed panel of jurors includes Justin Adams, a veteran artist working in the fantasy and science-fiction genres (New York City); Barbara Schulz, comic book artist and Professor of Comic Art at Minneapolis College of Art and Design (Minneapolis); Bill Rude, professional designer, animator, and effects expert with a penchant for retro horror (Los Angeles); Isabel Samaras, painter whose images are often woven with references to classic horror movies, ancient mythologies, and childhood fairy tales (San Francisco); and Laurie Lee Brom, artist pursuing fairy folk, curious ghosts and odd characters in her enchanting portraits and paintings (Seattle).
