IT’S FINALLY TIME FOR ISSUE #4 YOU CHUMBAWUMBAS
What Is Too Kawaii to Die?
It’s a non-profit comics and illustration zine with the theme of cute meets scary, stupid, strange, sad, and serious. Traditionally we add a pinch of bitter anime memories to the brew but it’s not required. You don’t have to be anime to work here, but it helps!
Read and download the first issues here:

The zine is also printed and sold at cost via on demand printers. Visit this blog’s “Buy” page for links to the first 2 issues (3rd issue is coming in some form soon).
What should submissions be? And in what format?
Submissions can be comics or illustrations. FULL COLOR YAY. You can submit as many things as you’d like, multiple images or comics. If your comic is over 7 pages, let me know so we can make sure you’re not crowding anyone out.
Pages should be 7” wide X 10.5” and 300 DPI (or more)
We are using this template: http://ka-blam.com/printing/front/?p=119
They can be JPG, PNG, or TIFF
Please learn about what trim area/live area/bleed pages mean before you layout your pages. Let me know if you need something about it cleared up.
When is the deadline?
The deadline is July 15th
If it’s close to the deadline and you’re not sure you’re going to make it. Contact me, things can be worked out!
Where do I send my submission?
Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org, this is also where you can direct all of your queries and questions.
You can also ask questions at tookawaiitodie.tumblr.com
Feel free to contact me just to declare your intent to submit, it’s nice knowing who is planning to. I try very hard to keep in contact with all interested artists.
In the case that there are too many submissions for the print edition, the rest will all be in the digital version. This was not a problem last time as anticipated, so don’t let it scare you off.
Spread the word! I hope to see many new artists as well as this zine’s stalwart mainstays ( =①ω①=)
Enter your submissions by July 15th to be a part of my friend Zach’s Art Mag! I’m gonna try to participate since I graduated now.
