As previously announced the interview in issue #3 of The Seneca Collective will be with artist/adventurer Ryan Estrada, whose work you may be familiar with from anthologies such as Flight volume 4 and This Is How You Die: Stories of the Inscrutable, Infallible, Inescapable Machine of Death, his webcomics, Aki Alliance and The Kind or his newest project, The Whole Story. Ryan also runs the Twitter account, @forexposure_txt, where he makes fun of unpaid artist want ads.
Ryan has also been a gator wrangler in The United States, an ambassador to Australia, an undocumented animator in Canada, a Bollywood star in India, a ghostbuster in South Korea, a coca war reporter in Peru, explored Kim Jon Il’s secret tunnels in North Korea, slept on a bench in a Japanese typhoon, dug toilets for Thai tsunami victims, wandered illegally into Burma, made comics on top of ancient ruins in Cambodia, performed a made-up musical in Malaysia, sang on stage in Sinapore, played the guitar in Lao, hunted Hyena skulls in Kenya, climbed Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, watched whales in Ecuador, made adventure videos in Colombia, lived on a Costa Rican beach and a Panamanian volcano… and only one of those things is a lie!
Ryan’s interview is a record breaking 12 pages long!! Not only that but Ryan was nice enough to give us a special offer for the first 10 people to read his interview in the next issue of The Seneca Collective. Will it be you? Make sure to pick up your copy of The Seneca Collective issue #3 and read his interview on March 25th, 2014 to get Ryan’s special offer.
The deadline for submissions for the next issue of The Seneca Collective willl be MARCH 18TH and the release date for the third issue will be MARCH 25TH, although this is subject to change.
The theme for the next issue of The Seneca Collective will be "PROGRESS". You may interpret this theme in any way which you would like whether it involves progress in society, the progress of a character, or your progress at Seneca! Remember, the theme is only there to provide inspiration. Feel free to ignore the theme altogether. If you’d like to get an idea of the type of content that we publish in the zine then take a look at the previous issues. Keep in mind that we’re open to and actively encouraging people to submit new types of content!
We are excited to announce that the interview will be with artist/adventurer, Ryan Estrada, whose work you may be familiar with from anthologies such as Flight volume 4, This Is How You Die: Stories of the Inscrutable, Infallible, Inescapable Machine of Death or his newest project, The Whole Story. More exciting info about that later!
We are also currently seeking submissions specifically intended for use as the cover art. Here is a template of the layout of the cover for the third issue. Whatever art you submit for the cover should work with the overall layout of the cover, leaving dead space for the logo, text, issue number, and other illustrations. This does not mean that your illustration can’t extend to the edges of the page, (we would prefer it if it did) it just means that you shouldn’t put anything interesting in the areas that the other elements will be covering up and that your focal point should be where the big black circle is. It doesn’t have to match the current layout exactly (we can always move stuff around) but it should be as close as possible.
The cover should also reflect the theme of the new issue which, as previously announced, is "PROGRESS".
Hey, if you go to Seneca you should submit to this zine I’m editing. I interviewed Ryan Estrada for this one and it is an amazing interview. What a cool guy.

Thanks Krishna! That means a lot coming from you.
Q:hi there! I applied to seneca for illustration and I'm interested in hearing about the program is like. Mind telling me some info? :) Once you get the time. It would help me out a lot. I've been really uncertain about where to attend for illustration. I'm not interested in a 4yr bachelor course so this seems like my best option.
Hi. Sorry for not replying to you earlier but to start, the program is pretty intense and I wanted to give you a pretty detailed response. This is going to get long and ranty but hopefully it will be helpful for you. If you’re not interested in taking a 4 year course, then Seneca is a good option for you! There is a strong focus on getting people out of school and into the industry as soon as possible at Seneca. If you go through the summer then you can graduate in just over 1 year.
Wow Tim, this is AMAZING! Great job.
Thanks! I hope Barney agrees.
We’re making mail teasers in business class that incorporate a word cloud of adjectives and slogans that describe our art and business. We were supposed to use Wordle.net but were allowed to use Photoshop or Illustrator if we wanted to. The ones from Wordle looked too automated to me so I made my own… I hope mine isn’t too creative to be considered a Wordle.
