BBC America Needs Your Orphan Black Art!

Dear Brilliant Orphan Black Artists, We want to feature YOUR Orphan Black artwork at the San Diego Comic Con this year. By “feature” we mean we want to put your art on a GIGANTIC SCREEN* for all of Comic Con to see and admire.

*We are not sure how big the screen is exactly, but it’s something like a billion feet long and a trillion feet tall. (Rough estimate.) It’s so big that we need fan art that is high resolution (or as high rez as possible) and preferably sized to 1920×1080. Translation: BIG, TOP-QUALITY ART for BIG, TOP-QUALITY COMIC CON SCREEN.

Even if your OB art is the best thing that ever happened to the internet, if it’s too small, we can’t use it. So please go big or go working and shopping. (Helena joke.)

Due Date: RIGHT NOW. ASAP! URGENT! Get it to us as soon as
