Dear Every Artist and Illustrator Ever,

Illustration // Friday, February 17, 2012
First off, I would like to genuinely thank everybody that has sent submissions into Juxtapoz for review. I will occasionally promote a 'Call to Illustrators' encouraging reader submissions, and it has just occurred to me that you may have ZERO idea how to go about doing this. So, I'm going to do you a favor and write up some quick guidelines to follow when submitting to anyone, to make all of our lives less painful and better your chances for future success, recognition, white tigers and rooftop jacuzzis. You're welcome....

Great work from an avid Jux follower and reader submission, thanks George!!
