my first post here...i wanted to get some help on doing freelance work for extra pay. currently, i'm an art teacher and a kickboxing instructor on guam, and i'd like to take a crack at comic book illustration. my questions are:
--do people who hire freelance artists usually hire artists locally?
--would it be too much of a hassle to hire someone from, let's say, guam? even w/the artwork being sent via expressmail or email?
--what is the standard payment for freelance comic artists? i've read that it is usually $$xxx per page. is this true?
i'm asking because i feel like i could make some extra money and i'd like to put my talents on the table--but i feel like i'd be passed up due to my location.
any help would be great. thanks guys.
