r.e. I need a Comic Book Artist (Psychoticville)

You are out of your mind, Sir.

Even at minimum wage (which no skilled artist should be expected to accept) your offer is ridiculously insulting. It takes about 12 hours to pencil & ink a page. (Yes, even if you already performed the “layouts” — because your mess will have to be redone… Otherwise you wouldn’t need a real artist in the first place!!!)

So — follow me here, the math is simple…. 12 hours a day times $10/hr (approx. min. wage) = $120 a day, times 22 days. That equals $2,640 for a job that needs to be completed in 22 day straight, no breaks.

You don’t need a comic book artist, you need a psychiatrist!

By the way, comic books are not the same thing as conceptual pieces or storyboards, i.e. the actual tools that are used to pitch movie ideas (by professionals). Clearly, you know nothing about either mediums. Comics are a storytelling art form and deserve the kind of respect for which you are obviously incapable.

I Need A Comic Book Artist (NYC)

Reply to: gigs-pybpt-1606535793@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

I am a New York City based writer and I need an illustrator for a sci-fi/action-adventure comic book. The comic will used as support material for an animation series proposal, and may separately be published on-line. I’m looking to have the book illustrated in a clean animation style (along the lines of work by Bruce Timm/Darwyn Cooke/Geddy Tartakovsky, etc).

The comic will be 22 pages long. I already have character designs for all the major characters, as well as layouts drawn for the issue — so this will really be more of a “translation” job than anything; turning those elements into final images. I am looking for an artist to provide final artwork (I already have a colorist and letterer). The job will be considered a “Work for Hire” assignment. I can pay $600 for the completed issue.

If you are interested in working on this project, please e-mail me through the link. Please include a link to, or attached sample of your artwork so that I can get a sense of your style. Please note that I am based in New York City, so if we work together it will need to be through e-mail and phone.

Thank you.

IF I LIKE WHAT YOU PAY I MAY WORK FOR YOU, jackass.

You need the services of a professional – not the other way around.

Post again with respect for our profession and we won’t flag you!

ARTISTS: Commence flagging the jackasses that seek to rob,
exploit, take advantage of and rip-off hardworking artists!

The slaves were freed.
Except for the artists and designers apparently

Do you get to rent your house because you tell your landlord it is good practice you are giving them renting to you?
Does a plumber come and fix your shitter for a portfolio piece?
Does the grocery store give you food in exchange for a good recommendation?

Well artists and designers need to respected by being paid for their skills, talents, time and work just like everyone else and this insane assumption so many morons have that we can exist on a wing and a prayer does not cut it.
You offend me, every time you ask for work for no pay.
Free the art slaves
Do not accept these ridiculous NO PAY ads
