Normally, Artful Dodge doesn’t
accept unsolicited artwork, though there are exceptions. But—as with our
written content—your work should not have been published or graced the pixels
of the internet yet.
We are also quite interested in works that bridge the gap between
word and image. That doesn’t mean illustration or typography (some sort of
brand new type font), but rather collaborations of word and image (by different
artists or by the same one), where the two elements complement each other and
build a relationship that transcends what either piece is when displayed in
singularity. If you’re having trouble picturing what we mean by this, check out
the series of poems and paintings by Tess Gallagher and Josie Gray which adorn
the pages of AD 46/47 and Jody Servon’s collection of artwork found on eBay
paired with their original descriptions, which appears in AD 50/51. Even further back, we might want to look at
Rat Rondell in AD 14/15 or Kathe Kowalski in AD 16/17 whose work also somehow
combine word and image.
