We are seeking an artist/illustrator for ongoing work. As part of a new and self-funded creative initiative, we are producing up to 20 completely new and original comics, along with additional illustrations for digital publication. We may work with several different illustrators/artists on this project.
We are using this contest to identify talent who we can commission for this project. This will be ongoing paid work, noting that you will need to agree to a non-disclosure agreement and assign all rights for the materials you produce to us.
For this contest, we would like to see you produce 3x panels of an original comic based on the brief below:
- Character: Suzie, a 20 year old female who suffers from severe social anxiety, slim figure, any race
- panel 1: Suzie is sitting down at a bus stop waiting for the bus to arrive. A man is sitting next to her, innocently reading a newspaper. She is scared of him even though he's just reading the paper
- panel 2: Suzie glances over at the man, thinking to herself: "Get away! Get away you nasty man. I'M catching this bus!"
- panel 3: the man turns a page of his newspaper and glares at Suzie. He now looks larger, threatening, sneering/grinning evilly at her. We are seeing him as Suzie imagines him
There is an optional 4th panel:
- panel 4: Suzie gets up and takes one step away. The man looks normal again, reading his newspaper calmly
The style, background, outfits etc. is entirely up to you, but follow the details above closely.
We are excited to see your submissions and hoping to find a collaborator for this project.
