Here’s yer chance! Light in the attic zine issue no. 3 design contest!

Dear Light In The Attic devotees, we have a mission for you! Curious? Then, read on…

On Record Store Day 2011 (April 16), we will unleash upon the world the supreme righteousness that is the Light In The Attic Zine. For those of you who are counting, this will be Issue No. 3. And for those of you who are scratching your heads (“Zine, what zine?” or god forbid, “What’s a zine???”) the Light In The Attic Zine is an awesome and completely FREE zine that features interviews with legendary artists (Jane Birkin, Kris Kristofferson, Betty Davis), special features, record reviews and coverage of upcoming LITA releases (like the upcoming Jim Sullivan U.F.O. reissue). The contents of Issue No. 3 are still top secret, but let’s just say that they are hotter than a two dollar pistol at an all night shoot-out!  Damn!

OK, OK, back to the matter at hand. For the cover art of the two previous issues, we enlisted the talents of artist extrodinaire (and frequent LITA artist/desinger) Drew Christie (see below). And now, it’s your chance!  The rules are simple and practically non-existent:

1). Make use of your talents and design (paint, draw, etch-a-sketch) us a cover for Issue No. 3 of the Light In The Attic Zine. The rough dimensions are 7 inchs x 7 inchs.

2). Entries must be submitted by November 1st, 2010. All entries must be submitted to zine {at} lightintheattic {dot} net

That’s it! And, what’s in it for you??? Well, in addition to receiving full credit for your kick-ass artwork, the winner will also be entered into the Light In The Attic Subscription Program for 2011! That’s a whole lotta good records coming your way all year…for free. Have a look at this past year’s program to get an idea.

Need some inspiration? Here are the covers for Issue No. 1 and No. 2 by Drew Christie:


Light In The Attic Zine, Issue No. 1


Light In The Attic Zine, Issue No. 2

Good luck!!!
