I am real frustrated today.
In my efforts to find an artist to pencil and ink an 8 pages story I’ve written, I posted a thread on Digitalwebbing.com under PAID jobs. But it did not post. The next day I contacted the webmaster but no answer. I tried posting again yesterday and it still did not work. Contacted the webmaster again and waiting for an answer.
This morning I decided to post the job on Elance.com. I got a couple answers right away but then the job was taken down (RAAGH!). I contacted them to figure out what the problem is and I am waiting for an answer. I am SOO waiting. WTF Internet?!?!
Do you have any similar experiences? Any advice?
While I wait, here is the job post,
-Seeking Artist for 8 pages Fantasy/ Action Comedy ($60 per page, negotiable)
My name is Nico. I am a Comic Book writer. I am currently looking for an artist to draw an 8-pages story.
I am looking for someone to produce both pencils and inks, $60 per page (negotiable depending on the quality of the art) and a cover. I will be lettering the final artwork. You will send invoices and get payment through Paypal. You will receive payment for one page as a deposit upon signing the contract and the rest of the money once you turn in the final files to me as 300dpi TIF files. If you have a different payment set up in mind, I am flexible. There is no specific deadline but I would like the work to be completed no later than August 1st. I will retain ownership of the property but you can do with the final artwork as you please, of course.
The ideal candidate will have experience creating sequential artwork. I am looking for an artist with integrity, strong work ethic, and with whom I can have an honest back and forth about the work.
The 8-pages story is an Action/ Fantasy Comedy about KING ARTHUR reincarnated as an amnesiac hobo (in the spirit of The Dude from the Big Lebowski) who is forced to retrieve Excalibur from the stone by his mortal enemy and Rich CEO MORDRED. In the end, Magical Hitman MERLIN saves him and takes him back to Avalon. It’s over-the-top comedic madness.
A bit about me. You can see some of my work at http://activecomics.com/ I got a couple stories published by 8th Wonder Press but I am not yet able to share them on my site since it has to be one year since the book publication for me to be able to do so.
If interested, please send me an email with links to your work and page rate to firstname.lastname@example.org
Don’t hesitate to contact me with questions and to request a copy of the script.
Thank you for reading,
