J.L. Collins has been published by Wizards of the Coast in Realms of the Dragons II: A Forgotten Realms Anthology, and also published in Dragon Magazine #332 - A Novel Approach. William Ward edited the Fantasy Anthology Fablewood, which was recently, spotlighted by Ursula K. Le Guin under her ongoing Some Books I’ve Liked website entries.
We are currently seeking a sequential artist for a paid submission package, and subsequent ongoing/mini-series monthly comic if project is green lighted by a publisher. Artist should have an appreciation for the fantasy genre, as well as an interest in ‘breaking into’ comics.
Project involves up-front page rate for the submission package, however we are looking for someone that is interested in collaborating to get their work published, more than interest in the freelance aspect (not that there is anything wrong with that, or that you can’t do both – we simply want to be clear where we are coming from with this project).
Essentially the pay offered for submission package is a ‘safety net’ for someone interested in collaboration, but tired of taking chances on projects that are never accepted by a publisher. We are only looking for people who would be interested in continuing on the project if it is picked up, with the understanding that it would be a division of profits (a back-end 'roll of the dice') situation from that point forward.
Interested artists should e-mail to email@example.com with links to current sequential art samples, list of published work (if any), and page rate. Script (obviously) and other additional information is available for those that may be interested, we are open to questions you may have as well. We are proponents of contracts that make people comfortable and safe, and will work out details with interested parties in advance of work.
We lean slightly towards color work, but are also considering B&W artwork. Storytelling ability is more important to us then style.
E-mails will be accepted until September 6th 2008.
Thank you for taking the time to consider our offer.
