Dave Hyatt asks:
How Can I get my work in the Image Gallery?  What's the difference between the Image Gallery and the Fan Art?
Tlalocelotl Replies:
The "Image Gallery" is only for official Gravitywell published work. "Fan Art" is non-official stuff, basically Gravitywell characters done by Gravitywell fans, such as yourself. If you have a fan art for us, just e-mail it to this address art@gravitywell.com . You can either e-mail the attached file, or send us a link to the image on-line. Specify what name you want credit (real name or alias) and let us know if you want your name to be a clickable link to your e-mail address. We don't link web pages from names, just e-mail addresses.

Hi! I checked out Hangwire and really dig the art! Only, there is something that really bothers me and I hope you don't take this wrong but as a suggestion:
The font used in the word ballons is really ugly and clashes with the beautifull artwork. I personaly prefer when artists letter the words themselves for better harmony but I understand that this is time consumming. So why not try the next best thing and either create a font based on the artist's own style or find a better suited font. I realize this involves some costs but word baloons are a very important part of comics, so no art should be diminished by such a detail. If you have quality art and storytelling, why not go all the way and take special attention in these details? That's only my opinion of course but I really needed you to know this!

Here at Gravitywell we're always open to friendly suggestions so feel free to e-mail us any time you have something to say. You are right on two respects, that the correct font is very important to the artwork and story, and that it can be time consuming to have an artist hand letter each piece that they illustrate. In respect for our comic books, we usually use digital lettering for a wide variety of reasons. Ease of correction, easy to read, fast and efficient. As you know we update 6+ times a week so getting our material out on a timely basis is a very important item to us! With time, even as I type this our abilities to letter, as well as illustrate, create and write improve. We will get to the point that the distinction of the art and words are so smooth, that you won't have anything detracting from your reading. In the meantime we have to use the most efficient as well as legible means available to us. As you may know, a talented artist isn't necessarily a talented letterist! If you know of, or see any fonts which you think will suit "Hangwire," or any other Gravitywell piece that you enjoy feel free to let us know what they are. In the meantime, your suggestion will go directly to the letterist who will peruse his hard drive for a better font, if there is one!
        Thanks for writing!
