Background on me
​I'm self funding this project and the money has already been put aside. I would love to find an artist with whom I can form a great working relationship with, on this and possible future projects. If you are interested please read further.

Background on project
I have obtained the rights to adapt a short story about the future of earth and humanity into graphic novel format. The story spans the period from the near future to the far future. I have planned out and conceptualised about 80% of the project. ​The story is broken up into 10 sections of about 6 pages per section.

What I'm looking for
A realistic style will be required for this project. A recent example of a project that closely resembles what I have in mind is Habitat by Simon Roy. Being able to convey emotion and the passage of time through scenes with and without people in them is very important.

Delivery of between 6-10 pages per month. ​

The project requires illustrating various landscapes, city​scapes, people and animals etc​.​ There are various montages that show the passage of time.​
I would like to do this in a realistic style with a margin for an artist's own style. ​The listed page rate is only for finished inked pages but if you have any other skills including colouring or lettering these may be utilised in the future. ​Please mention any additional skills in your e-mail.

Upload types
Getting a 600dpi TIFF document to me in whatever way you find convenient will form the final output, although Dropbox is preferred. Pages must be inked, complete and ready for colouring. ​

What constitutes completion
When you have let me know via e-mail that a page has been delivered and I am able to open it I will commence with payment for that page.

The page​ rate I'm offering is $65 (USD).​

Payment terms
​After completed pages have been received payment will be made using PayPal within 48 hours. ​I will pay for the first page upfront.

Successful artists will be required to sign a work-for-hire agreement.

What to send
Please send examples of your sequential artwork to the listed e-mail address. Please try and include examples of the specific attributes outlines in this post. ​If you can included any professional references as well that would be greatly appreciated.
