Up Late with Eric Xu cover art

Post by Beevor Feevor » Wed Jan 07, 2015 7:52 pm

So while uploading the last couple of episodes of the podcast, I've been a little annoyed at the lack of cover art, so I (jokingly) asked the podcast chat on Facebook to come up with some pieces for me, since I am entirely devoid of artistic talent. Lo and behold, I got quite a few submissions from them, and they were all quite excellent! Inspired by this, I want to make a request to the Quizbowl community at large. If you guys want to come up with some cover art for the podcast, I will gladly use it for future and past episodes of the podcast. Please email your cover art to xkcdlover@gmail.com! I'd appreciate my email not being filled with troll art, so please, just be a good sport about it?

As an added incentive for making this awesome art, if your artwork makes it onto a podcast (which is guaranteed for like, the first 10 people), I will mail out a random book prize that I have lying around the house. Below is Jennie Yang's submission (and it's pretty friggin-sweet). I'm certainly not expecting all of them to be that spectacular, but do your best, and get a book if I decide to use it!

For anyone who wants to get started, I have sloppily cut out the face of the up late with eric xu for convenient use here

You can quickly and easily insert it into timeless images, so find your best image and just stick stuff in it. For example you can use faceinhole, a site I found while attempting to figure out what those things you see at fairs are where you put your face in the hole, and created this masterpiece.

Well... ideally, future cover art doesn't use my face! Those bottom two are very solid though, and speak to my interests, so you get a book at nats! :grin:

Thomas Nagel knows what time it is. Also, trying to write in cursive on a trackpad is awful:

If you're feeling student theatery.... (and want to be overly dramatic about how long your podcast is)

Probably best used for episode five.

Easiest way is to upload to imgur or something, then take the direct link to the image and put it in between [img] tags.
