Seeking an artist for a one-off mini

I’m looking for an artist to pencil, ink, and (negotiably) colour* an original eight-page minicomic, for a one-off payment of US$150. This comic will be published online under a CC-BY-NC-SA license: it won’t ever be sold, so there’s no profit share available, but you will always be credited fully for your work, and will be free to distribute it as you like. I’m also hoping to give away printed copies of the comic at New York Comic Con this October, which means I’ll need all eight pages complete by the beginning of September.

The comic’s plot takes place between 1880 and 1911, with settings including an English coastal village and a ship at sea. I’d love to work with someone whose style is influenced by artists like Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá, Alex Maleev, Bill Sienkiewicz, and Dave McKean. I’m thinking atmospheric watercolours, expressive faces, and impressionistic settings and effects. You’ll also need a good understanding of written English.†

Interested, or want to know more? Then I’d love to see a sample of your sequential work and hear a little bit about you: you can email me on ejne7comics AT gmail DOT com. Really looking forward to hearing from you.

Please feel free to reblog/pass this along to anyone you think might be interested.

*Or digital equivalent, if you don’t work with real pencils and ink
†If reading text is difficult for you, I’m more than happy to help make an audio version/find another way to present the script for you.
