View Full Version : seeking artist for slice of life romance one-shot

01-16-2017, 03:38 PM
Constellation Comics is seeking an artist for a new 22-page one-shot. The story is called The Next Dance. It is a slice-of-life story about a woman finding love again after a loss. It is a character-driven, moody, atmospheric piece with strong romantic themes and subtle supernatural themes.

The story will be in black and white. We would prefer an artist who does their own inks, but if you are strictly a penciler you may still apply; just understand that you will be at a slight disadvantage over someone who can provide the whole package.

We are offering $100 a page for pencils and inks together. If we wind up hiring a separate penciler and inker, we will need to negotiate a pay rate for each. Terms are negotiable, but up front we are offering payment in full net 30 upon completion, via paypal.

If you are interested in applying, please email anna.leue@gmail.com. Be sure to include a link to your online portfolio in your email. Your portfolio MUST include sequentials. If your portfolio is all pin-ups, splash pages and character sketches, your application will be discarded. Please also include a few lines about your experience in the comic field in the body of your email.

This project is going to follow a similar model to the one we are using for our project, The Other Son (On Kickstarter now! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1807618223/the-other-son-a-dark-western-one-shot-comic). We will pay a page rate up front, and when the project is complete we will go directly to digital distribution. Then we will run a Kickstarter campaign to raise capital to pay for a print run.
