We are currently looking for an illustrator for a Baseball storyline in a new Sports comic series. This is one of 7 story lines in the comic. The storyline will be spread over 2.5 to 3 pages, with a total of 6-9 small panels per page for each edition.
We would prefer an artist who is proficient in digital illustration and can supply print-ready work. Please quote per page. We are a new firm and cannot compete with the big players in terms of paying pro rates, but we are looking for flexible and good illustrators. We are open to giving good new illustrators a chance.
This will initially be a monthly publication, eventually going bi-weekly, so we are looking for long-term commitment. The storyline and characters will be provided and we are looking for the right illustrator to bring the characters to life. More information will be given to shortlisted illustrators after we narrow down the candidates.
The ideal illustrator will have a relatively good knowledge/understanding of the history and rules of MLB baseball, some knowledge of the game of Cricket (not a show stopper) and can translate the text of the storyline into stunning illustrations using a unique style. They should be very flexible, with great imagination, be reliable, respond promptly to communication and be ready to work as part of a team.
