I'm looking for talented graphic artists, comics, illustrators and animators.
If I like your samples, I will place a small amount ($20-$30) into escrow for to you explore some concepts and ideas I have. I want you to explore these using your own style and strongest median. If I like what you do I’ll give you more work.
I’ve had great success previously with these open offers (vs. a single project for one person) and have developed several great and lasting relationships.
I don’t care if you have any previous feedback or much experience working this way.
I’m looking for three things.
1.) Friendly and clear communication skills.
2.) Raw talent
3.) Reliability (consistently DOING what you said you were GOING to do)
If you have these 3 things I WANT to build a relationship with you will likely have A LOT of work for you now and in the future
My goal is build long term and mutually beneficial relationships with the right kind of people.
If you are potentially interested in working with me this is how I would like to proceed:
1.) Give me your hourly rate. Really this is just a starting point I'm very happy to increase it when I see quality and reliability from someone.
2.) Include up to 5 links of your favorite work. Do not give me a huge list, just pick a couple things you are the most proud of.
3.) Tell me a little about yourself but please don't spend much time on this... yet.
I will respond to every message that isn’t a standard ‘copy and paste’ bid. If you spend some time writing me a ‘real’ message and showing me your work I will reply to you even if I’m not interested in hiring you.
Also, I’m not interested in ‘agencies’ I want to speak directly to the person creating the artwork.
I’m looking forward to working with you!
If you are waiting for me on anything please PM me. If you have written me and not heard anything please give me a PM. I'm doing my best to manage all the threads... but there are a lot!
Again, please send me a PM if you are waiting on me for anything. OR if you are bidding for the first time send me a PM. I'm scanning the page for the new BOLD PM notification and I will not see your message if you don't do this.
One more reminder. :) Please give me a PM if you are waiting on me for anything. Also if you followed the directions in the posting and haven't heard anything from me drop me a PM to remind me and I'll send you a response.
I believe I'm up to date on communications with everything. If I missed you and you are waiting on a response please drop me a PM.
Sorry for the delay in responses. Its been a crazy week and wasn't able to keep up. I think I've responded to everyone needing something. If I've missed you please send me an IM.
If you have accepted escrow for concepts and haven't updated me within the last week please drop me a PM giving me your status. I'm not in a hurry but I'd like to stay on contact with you.
Thanks so much!
Sorry for the long delay between updates. I've been speaking with many of you through this time.
I've started to green light a few projects. I've had many great submissions and obviously I can't approve everything.
Hopefully if these initial ones are successful I can get some of the other submissions started.
I've already contacted you if your submission was selected however please feel free to drop me a PM with any questions.
In particular if I still owe you an escrow release or your waiting on something from me please let me know. I 'm sure a few things slipped through the cracks and I apologize for that.
If you haven't had the chance to submit a concept you can still do so... I'm always looking for great quality artwork.
If you aren't going to get a chance and I've deposited escrow with you please return it.
Again, please feel free to contact me with any questions! I've extremely excited from all the great stuff I've received and I can't wait to see selected pieces fully realized!
