View Full Version : 5-page story set in 1930s needs artist for Vast Expanse #2

11-06-2015, 11:23 AM
I am searching for a work-for-hire artist to pencil and ink a 5-page crime story set in 1938 with two female leads. It is fun and lighthearted. Geared toward fans of Golden Age detective stories. It will be published in 2016 in the second issue of my comic book anthology Vast Expanse.

The artist I am looking for will have sequential art samples in their portfolio. Attention to detail in historic vehicles and fashion is mandatory. In a perfect world I would like to hire a female to draw it, but the artist whose style best fits my vision for the story will get the job. I will be lettering the story myself, and may add graytones if needed. I will provide sketches and designs for major characters.

$25 per page @ 5 pages = $125 total.

$40 upfront. $40 upon mid-project check-in and approval. $45 on completion within 1 week of receiving final artwork via email, cloud drive, or other Internet application in the form of high-resolution (300 dpi or higher) images in PSD, TIFF, or JPEG format. Payment will be delivered via Paypal. Must be willing to sign work-for-hire contract. Artist will be given a 60-day deadline for completion of the project.

I am Jeremy Scott Nichols. I am the publisher and writer of Vast Expanse (https://www.facebook.com/vastexpansecomic/), a new anthology from Township Comics. The artists for the first issue were hired from these forums.

I am a writer and artist with a handful of professional credits over the years with small publishers like Delta Comics, Uncut Comics, and Desperado/Image. My highest profile work was 3 appearances in Negative Burn. I am the author and artist of webcomics such as Red Glare (http://redglare.thecomicseries.com/), An Earth to Defend (http://anearthtodefend.thecomicseries.com/comics/1/), Interstellar Strike Force (http://interstellarstrikeforce.thecomicseries.com/), and the author of webcomic Ghost Division (http://ghostdivision.webcomic.ws/comics/1/).
