Otherly is on a distinguished road

Comic book artist (pencils and inks) $300 per page

We looking to hire a talented artist to collaborate with on a creator-owned sci-fi. The rate is $300 per page.

About us: OTHERLY IS A PRODUCTION COMPANY EXPLORING STORYTELLING FRONTIERS IN TELEVISION, FILM, VR, AR & COMIC BOOKS.

Otherly is a development company that has seed funding to develop imaginative new properties. From a journey into the magical world of a child's imagination, to a series of haunting encounters with the world’s greatest living storytellers, our development portfolio is diverse but all with the simple goal of telling stories that need to be told in new and exciting ways. Our approach brings together creative talent from a diverse range of backgrounds to experiment together and bring original ideas to market. We are currently developing Thea, an expansive science fiction ip, as well as a number of narrative vr series. Thea will launch as a comic book in 2017.

The comic Thea is a character driven sci-fi set in a rich and imaginative world. We are looking for someone who feels just as comfortable conveying deep and nuanced character emotion, as they do high-octane action set pieces, and with a talent for world building.

Artists we love: Fiona Staples / Greg Tocchini / Jerome Opena

Timings: The first book script is almost completed and so we’d be looking to start work asap, however, we are able to be somewhat flexible for the right partner

Contract: This would cover the first book (a 44-page double issue) with the option for a longer term commitment. This is a work for hire contract and the copyright will be retained by Otherly.

About you: We are looking for an artist who is a great collaborator, is imaginative and keen to share their own ideas, and can be trusted to deliver to publisher deadlines. Ultimately the choice will be made on creative talent but also the passion you bring, and willingness to become involved and engaged with the world and the stories we are telling.

Applications: Please send your portfolio to workfor[at]otherlyproductions[dot]com, which must include a broad range of examples of your sequential artwork (links only, no attachments), work experience, contact information and references which we can follow up on. We will only consider applications that are submitted to the email above.

Payment: We will pay 75% of the page rate every two weeks on a Friday for all pages signed off and submitted as final hi-res pages in tiff format in that time period. With the final 25% being paid 5 days after completion of the 44-page book.

*Note: For $300 we would be expecting a great artist with a solid body of work and experience. That said we are also excited to discover new talent and invest in helping realize great potential.*

Thank you for all submissions

Hi,

First of all, thank you for all the submissions. There is incredible talent out there. We have received close to 500 submissions for this one position and are now closing this post so we can review each and every one of them. Unfortunately, due to the sheer volume, we will be unable to respond to each one individually. We hope to make a decision within the next week.

Many thanks once again.

Christian
