While this isn’t directly related to freelance writing, it is related to a ‘zine. I would appreciate it if you could list this as a job ad, since it is on a freelance basis)
Due to unexpected real life circumstances that forced our original artist to back out, Marginal Boundaries is currently on the lookout for 1-3 freelance artists.
Marginal Boundaries is a speculative-fiction e-zine currently working on publishing its first issue. Bearing in mind that this is a start-up ‘zine, we are currently only offering $10.00 per original art piece. Each piece will be relevant to one of the stories in the first issue, and there are a total of 10 stories in the first issue. In addition, we are commissioning an original piece of art for the cover of Issue 1, which we will pay $100.00 (one hundred USD) for. Ideally we would like to work with an artist who can cover the entire project for us, but we may split the load between several artists depending on what we see.
We are not accepting unsolicited pieces of art. You should send your cover letter + links to your online portfolio (blog, website, Deviant Art page, whatever) to [email protected]. We will only be contacting short-list candidates. We will be basing our decisions upon your cover letter + your online portfolio.
We are currently looking towards a due date of around mid-March. This date is somewhat flexible. Our publish date is March 31st, 2010, and depending on the needs of our layout department we may adjust the deadline for artwork. We will be publishing in PDF format only.
Artists must have a PayPal account to be eligible. Artists will be required to sign an NDA and a contract. I will pay 50% of the money up-front for any artists who are commissioned to work on our first issue. Any artists commissioned will also receive a complimentary issue of the ‘zine.
