I've been doing pin-ups and commissions the least decade, including pencils/inks for a variety of small press books. Check out www.sorethumbgraphics.webs.com for bio and gallery. I'm also on ComicArtFans and have a gallery at DeviantArts.
I work quickly and professionally, and my rates are pretty low for the quality I deliver. I'm easy to work with, and will draw just about anything!

I'm looking for an artist for my newspaper-type strip, "Sheepless in Seattle". I've written tons of these strips, but I can't draw them myself (believe me, I've tried!).
Biff is an unemployed, cranky bunny. His wife is Brandy, an overweight, neurotic cow. Their lower-middle-class life challenges and comedic plights never stop! Other characters like dragons, porn stars, demonic sock puppets, and crazy neighbors add to the zany fun!
The humor is "adult" but not graphic, in the vein of Pearls Before Swine. Most characters are anthropomorphic animals. I storyboard each strip and can provide detailed character descriptions.
I have no unrealistic ideas about getting rich off this comic, but I'd sure like to give it a shot!
Please be motivated and dedicated. I'm very motivated and expect my collaborator to feel confident about this project!
Find me at FB (user name Swizzleglitch Fables) and contact me at Robschark@gmail.com
Hope to hear from you soon!
Hey guys, I'm an experienced writer and I have published a short story before. But my problem is that I have the ability to draw of a blind two year old that's drunk and high at the same time. Anyway, I need an artist for a unique comic series idea. (End of the world biblical version.) Sorry guys, I don't have $, but if this unique idea makes money, you will get 70% of profit (I am not in it for $.) I don't care if it's black or white or colored, either way is fine. Like some people have said, first issue or so will be free, and if people like it, we will charge. If interested, please email me DakotaGrossman99@yahoo.com After you email me, I'll send you the script for first book.

I know there are--I'm one of them. It's rough trying to find someone to draw your brilliantly written comics, isn't it? At least, to get them to draw them for free, or for a backend share of the profits. Can't really blame the artist though--they're holding all the cards there.
We've started a magazine called Black Cross, and our first issue is superhero themed. We're not going to help you on the art front, but we will publish your fiction stories about superheroes. So turn that script into a story and let us look at it. We pay low amounts of cash, but that's not really why you write, is it? It is? Oh. Well, we can't help there either. But if you'd like to see your work in print, and you'd like a couple bucks and a copy of the magazine, send us your work. Check out our blog here (website is forthcoming).
We're a pretty open-minded magazine, so if you've got art as well, we'll look at that. We will print short comics inside the magazine, whether it's one page, a three panel strip, or a few pages. Pay is negotiable for most art. However, we can't pay out all of our money for submissions to one person, so the shorter the comic the better the chance of getting it published.
Future issues will have other themes, like horror or science fiction, so if you write comics in those genres, check back at our site/blog for more opportunities.
This is our first issue, so we have no previous issues that I can show you as an example. Sorry. I know some people are always a little leery of someone new asking for submissions. I understand it and I get it. If you want to wait for a future issue before submitting to see if we're going to stick around, I understand that too, but I don't know if we'll be doing another superhero issue soon. We already have several pieces lined up for this issue--several stories along with a couple pieces of illustration. We're going to be doing small print runs--around 100 copies to start, with more reprints if sales go well. We've already got advertising booked. This is happening by December for a convention, and we'd like for some folks on here to be a part of it.
You can send submissions to email@example.com. Thanks for your interest!

I'm a writer, located in the Boston area, who has pursued various projects under various stage names over the years involving the written, spoken, and sung word. I've written a handful of essays -- around a dozen or so -- which touch upon various aspects of new age spirituality, quantum physics, sci-fi, and fantasy. I wouldn't call any of this "fiction," per se...let's just say I've had some interesting life experiences and insights.
It occurred to me recently that the vivid imagery in many of the essays would translate well to the comic book/graphic novel medium.
I'm looking for a graphic artist who would be interested in taking these essays and collaborating on a graphic non-fiction book, with an eye towards seeking hard copy and digital publication.
My ulterior motive is to take the ideas presented in my essays and frame them in a medium in which they're not usually found and provide readers with food for thought. If this ends up generating revenue for us, that would be great.
I've posted one of these essays below. If it strikes you as something which you'd enjoy bringing to life as graphic art, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
YOU CAN'T HOLD THE RIVER IN A PAPER CUP
Devotees of various religious and spiritual paths will often consider the teachings of their savior or guru to be complete truth, the whole of spiritual knowledge worth knowing.
The problem with this aspect of faith is that it ignores the limitations of human consciousness.
A year or two after I moved to Boston in the late 80's, I met a woman at a small shop. When our eyes met, I flashed on something which I couldn't and still can't accurately describe. It was a bit like hieroglyphics, but it wasn't that. Maybe something like a mathematical formula dancing before my eyes, but it wasn't precisely that either.
In that moment, I had reached the outer boundary of what the human mind can perceive and peered beyond that hard limit...and I lacked the adequate tools to perceive what I had experienced. The five senses failed me in that moment, as did rational thought and emotional feeling.
We can never know the whole truth while in human form. We're bound by the limitations of language, visual representation, reason, and emotion. The mind of God doesn't fully fit into the vessel of humanity which we inhabit.
That also holds true for divine beings incarnate on earth.
Take the spiritual essence of Jesus Christ, Buddha, Mohammad, or any other spiritual teacher and put that essence on earth in human form, and even that divine consciousness is limited by the bounds of human consciousness while on earth. You can't peer behind the veil completely when you've got to move through this plane in all of the traditional and necessary ways. If you could fully perceive the consciousness in every molecule of a coffee cup sitting on a nearby table, or see every parallel and alternate reality without regard to space, time, or frequency, you'd reach a point of consciousness overload where the sheer volume of information placed before you would make the act of picking up that coffee cup impossible.
That applied to Jesus Christ, just as surely as it applies to you or me.
Any enlightened being who walks the earth in human form has certain blinders on, blinders which make possible functioning in daily life. The words they speak and write are limited by the constraints of human language and symbology.
I don't claim to know the whole truth, but I do know that that truth is so much bigger than anything we can begin to imagine. The most that any teacher or teaching can communicate is but a mere whisper, a hint of something much greater.

Reminder that this is not a discussion thread. Please send any responses to solicitations for artists or writers via PM or e-mail. Thanks.
I'm currently looking for an artist for a graphic novel I'm working on. It's a small project that I've already done the writing for. If you're interested, please check out our website, http://www.va-comics.com/ where there a bit more info, and contact information. Cheers.
Hey everyone. I am a writer, director and producer for shorts on the web. All of my projects have been creator owned and they've retained all rights. I am in the process of writing a comic that I will be self publishing under a branch of my production company. I intend to purchase a batch of ISBN #'s and are looking for individuals who are also interested in self publishing to scoop up some open ISBNs (free of cost) and release their work alongside my book and hopefully many others. If you are interested, you probably have many questions. I am new to this forum, so I may not check it often (which I'd like to change that, this seems like a really cool board) so you can also reach me at JohnnyC@SchjoayProductions.com
I am also seeking collaborators for my current projects, including a colorist for my immediate project (a Western) and an artist and colorist for another sci-fi concept I've developed for several years.
Thank you for your time and attention to my post.
Our company, Trusted Cape, is looking for a digital illustrator to help create a series of groundbreaking interactive comics.
We are looking for pro-quality art and a slightly left-of-center style. We want to be inspired. And frankly we want to work with someone who is collaborative and fun. Must be proficient and comfortable with Photoshop.
So, if you meet the above criteria and if call Arthur Adams, Gabriel Rodrigues, Mark Bagley, J Scott Campbell and Brent Anderson your heroes, then shoot us an email with samples.
This is a paid gig.
We’re Bill Groshelle and Brendan Cahill, we’re working on a book tentatively titled Operation Dragon, and we’re looking for an artist.
The Tech Specs
The book will likely be graphic novel-only, not individual issues, with about 8 issues’ worth of content (176 pages)--so it's a relatively weighty project. We're looking to get it out within one year. The faster, the better, of course. Yes, there is money--we’ll negotiate a fair page rate on work-for-hire terms. We’ll likely ask several artists to do three or four pages of the script (for which we’ll pay), so we can see how their styles and capabilities mesh with the story.
Operation Dragon pairs a retro pulp sensibility with a sci-fi adventure storyline. Set in the Pacific during World War II, it’s an action story, but there is plenty of personal interplay and conflict between the three main characters. Mature readers. The language is explicit and realistic, and violence is dealt with frankly.
The Pacific, World War II. Rick Novak, a U.S. Marine corporal and disgraced ex-cop, is captured by the Japanese. He escapes with the help of Tony Bruno, the man who destroyed his career, and Catherine King, a government agent with a secret agenda, but the three of them soon find themselves in greater danger as they fall headlong into a Japanese plot to hasten the end of the war--by breeding and controlling dinosaurs. The three castaways, along with a small group of Army Rangers, have to stop the monsters, and the plan--but first, they have to survive.
What We’re Looking For
Ideally, we'd like to find an artist who can produce complete pages (pencils/inks/color) or at least pencils/inks, but we'll take a look at whatever you've got. Stylistically, we’re open. You'll have to be comfortable visualizing a World War II world and its technology and styles, along with dinosaurs interacting with people, and pitched battle scenes. Character and action are both important. We prefer realistic over cartoony. We’re looking for professionalism--in both your work and your work ethic.
If this sounds like a good fit for you, email Brendan Cahill at bc (at) brendancahill.com. We’re located in Northern California, willing to work with someone in a different location.
i am kdart an aspiring comic artist and painter.

i appreciate your time
Hello I'm new to the forum. I'm a amateur writer and I've started on a comic series. The concept is to put a twist on the super hero genre with drama. I'm looking for a illustrator who would like to become a partner, whose style might be dark and isn't afraid of blood & violence. I'm not looking for gore but this might not be for little kids. I would like to partner up with an artist who would do this for the love of comics and we would split the profits if anything comes out of it but i'll pay for the right rates if i like the artwork. Email me if interested @ email@example.com
