I'm looking for an artist to fully illustrate a single issue (the first issue) of my ongoing comic series. This includes the front and back cover, the panels, the dialogue balloons, the dialogue itself, everything, all in full colour. I can't imagine it would be longer than 20-30 pages.
To sum up my comic as a short elevator pitch, it would be...
Sin City meets Spongebob Squarepants.
I'm looking for an art style similar to the visceral nature of The Walking Dead, mixed with the anthropomorphism and emotion of comics like Blacksad and Saga.
I have the whole first issue written out in the style of a film script. So, all of the dialogue, action and certain character/location descriptions are in place.
Not being an illustrator myself though, there will need to be a lot of collaboration between us in order to create the look of the characters and the world they inhabit (since they won't be human), as well as the layout of the actual pages. Collaboration is the key word, actually, as I'm open to any and all illustrative, layout, or general artistic ideas that you may have.
I'll need to see some of your previous art, preferably in graphic novel/comic form.
Despite my efforts, I can't guarantee that this project will be successful/published when it's finished; exposure isn't the ultimate payment here, delicious money is.
And speaking of money, I'm not what you'd call wealthy in the slightest sense so I won't be able to pay you an hourly rate. I'd rather negotiate a "per page" form of payment, or a lump sum for the completed project. I don't mean to sound like a cheap skate, but if you can work for less than the budget I've chosen then you will be preferred (as long as the quality is still high).
By agreeing to work on this project, you will not gain or retain any rights my story, my characters or my comic as a whole. You will be credited as the illustrator, but you will not own any part of the completed project. When it is finished I will require copies of all preliminary sketches to possibly be included in the finished product. If all goes well then I MIGHT ask you to work with me again on the second issue, and subsequent issues after that (if you're interested, of course), under different circumstances.
There's no definitive deadline for this project, but I will need you, or us together, to work out a timeline to keep things on track, with regular contact and updates. I'll just need your email so we can stay in touch.
If you think you're the illustrator for the job, then I look forward to hearing from you soon.
