  • [Wanted ($)] Artist needed paying gig!

    Oh Hey,

    Thanks for stopping by…
    A lot of you will know me.
    Those who don’t, my name is Matt Garvey and I am a comic writer.
    I self-publish my own comics and in the last year I have managed to put out seven individual issues and a trade of one title.

    You can see samples of my comics here:

    I am planning for 2017 to be an even more proactive year for me…I hope.
    As well as the three titles I am currently writing and will continue to produce, I have five NEW titles that I want to put out too.
    Four already have artists lined up, but I need a fifth.

    As the title suggests, it is a paying gig… It is not a page rate either, but a flat fee per issue.
    It is a fair amount (I think so, anyway) that will allow you to work on this around other paying gigs you might have. You will also (rightly so) get equal 50% creator ownership of the comic and a share of any profits that are made.
    Basically, If I am able to sell it to a decent publisher, we’ll split the profits.
    HOWEVER, what I am looking for more than anything is a partner and a collaborator.
    I am planning this to be a four issue miniseries, so I need someone who is going to stick around and work with me…not just do one issue to make some quick money and leave the team.
    All four may get done in 2017, but you can’t die if it takes longer….

    What is the comic about I hear you say?
    Sorry, can’t tell you, it is a secret… :smiley:

    The only thing I can say about it is, its THE RUNNING MAN meets the GODFATHER…with a twist.
    I think you’ll like it.
    Once I have selected my partner and you have read the story, you’ll get it.

    What type of artist style am I looking for?

    I would love to work with someone who has a similar style to the amazing Steve McNiven, but I am open to all styles and will consider pretty much anything…Except anime style…Sorry, its really not my cup of tea.

    If you would like to work with me and want to know more, I’d love for you to post some samples of your work in this thread and then send me a direct message saying that you are interested, so that I can explain the terms privately.
    Then if you happy with the payment and terms laid out, I will pick three possible artists and will ask each to do a test page from the script.
    Based on those pages I will select my new partner.
    Sorry about being a pain and for having “try-outs”, but because I am paying for this out of my own pocket, I need to make sure I am working with the perfect partner.

    Thanks for reading my thread and I look forward to see what you guys and girls have up your sleeves.

    Here's a link to a few samples of my sequential work.
    I do a gritty style that's slightly more suited to B&W, a cleaner style that's more conventional, and a cartoony style.
    Examples of those can be seen
    I have examples of other styles in my pinups and illustrations but not all of those are suited to sequential storytelling.

    EDIT: Also, important note, I'm booked until probably mid-March.
