Oni Press, publishers of such outstanding comics and graphic novels such as Wasteland, Stephen Colbert’s Tek Jansen and Scott Pilgrim, has announced today something really special for you aspiring comic book artists out there who don’t know how to break into the business: A talent search.
Check out all the info in the official press release from Oni Press:
In past years the Oni Press Talent Search has been a terrific success, and this year we’re excited to continue our search for up and coming artists at Comic-Con International in San Diego, California July 22nd – 27th, and through the mail until August 15th.
In order to have your portfolio reviewed, you must illustrate at least one of the below stories. Realizing that different artists are geared towards different subject matter, three professional writers have each developed a five-page script, using a different genre and showcasing a different personal scripting style.
Supernatural comedy titled Our Hero by Philip Gelatt, writer of Labor Days, and Indiana Jones Adventures.
Espionage thriller titled Cold City by Antony Johnson, writer of Wasteland and the Dead Space video game series.
Western drama titled Medicine Show by Frank Beaton, writer of various short stories appearing in This is a Souvenir, Outlaw Territory, 24/Seven and others.
