Comics and Illustration Gigs
I have some small gigs for interested artists from time to time. They pay in whatever you prefer from cash, trade, credit, or all of the above. Please note that these gigs are subject to change or cancellation, but I will try to do so only if it means a better result for the artist(s) affected.
Here is what's currently available:
Distro Gig: Comics Cube Series 1
I'm trying a new promotional thing which is a 2 inch cube with a 4 panel comic on the outside and some promotional stuff inside, like fun miniatures, mini zines, weird objects and so on. It will be available in a limited run both here online and in a vending machine on my table at shows. I'm seeking submissions for:
- 4 panel comics readable at 2" square. Can be a license of an existing one that you have done or you can pitch something new. Payment is $25 cash per comic accepted (most likely just 1 per artist per series) or $40 in distro credit. Terms are that you are giving me license to print the comic to use on the cube package as described for the series (a print run of 100 plus extras for promotion). Artists whose work is accepted will also receive file copies of their cube and a full set of the series).
- Mini zines, small prints or other pieces of art or sculpture. Again, you can use this as an opportunity to clear your inventory of something you already have done or you can pitch something new. Payment and licensing (if applicable) would be negotiated case by case but don't be shy to let me know what you would like to get for something.
Distro Gig: Fall & Winter Catalog
The catalog will always exist online but I will also publish a seasonal print version to give out at shows, hopefully drive readers to this site, and give some of the distro artists another space to show what they're up to.
So in addition to submitting your zines and comics for listing in the catalog itself, I'm looking for:
- Cover art for the catalog, which will be either half letter or half legal sized paper. Cover will be wraparound, preferably full colour, with room for text on the front and back. Pay is $100 in return for license to use the image on the printed cover and as a promotional spot illo on the website.
- Comics and/or illustrations for the interior of the catalog. If you are listing something new and would like to submit some process art or other behind the scenes information, that is always welcome.
