I am currently seeking a comic book artist in the style of Jim Lee. The artist must reside in the United States, Canada or the United Kingdom.
The comic will consist of 8 pages with typically 4 to 6 panels per page and once completed will be submitted to Zuda.com (DC Comics) for their monthly comic book contest. Please note the artist must agree with Zuda’s submission agreement which is located here. Additionally you should be aware if this comic is selected as the winner or as the instant winner; I have NO intention of signing with Zuda and their extremely one sided ‘Rights Agreement’. This is instead to be used as a promotional tool for the concept of the comic, which if picked up elsewhere, would be an ongoing monthly series.
Pay Scale and Rights
Please send me a quote as well as if you also do the coloring. Ideally I would like an artist who can do the pencils, ink and coloring. This is preferred but not required. Once a price is agreed upon, I will pay you 50% up front and the remaining 50% upon completion. Additionally if we do win the Zuda contest and are awarded the $1000.00 prize I will split that as well as any other profit made from these 8 pages, down the middle.
It should be noted I make my living as a web developer and if you would instead like to trade services in lieu of payment; I am open to that also. I am proficient in HTML, XHTML, XML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, JavaScipt and AJAX. This is optional and of course I will pay cash if you don’t have any web needs.
If you’re interested and will agree to the Zuda submission agreement, please contact me at email@example.com.
Let me thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
