Every now and again, I will post announcements about places and people looking for contributions from ace artists. I will never post anything that expects artists to work for free or exposure. Don’t even get me started on that rant.
Today, we have opportunities for ace visual artists and ace writers. Without further ado …
Okay, so I hope this isn’t too weird, but I’m in need of an artist. I’ve been so invested in getting Asexual Artists up and running that I kind of lost track of time and now I’m in a bit of bind, which is really stressing me out.
Here’s the story: my biggest con of the year is in April (the weekend of the 23rd). I’m going to be surrounded by authors who have loads more money than I do, probably way more resources, and most probably already have an established audience. I’m going to be all on my lonesome at my table and I’d really, really like to have something to draw people in (aside from my novels of course). Obviously, people are drawn in by visuals and most of these booths will just be covered with them.
I really, really want to hire an ace artist. I’d prefer someone who can draw realistic figures (human-like in appearance for the most part, maybe a couple animals) and someone who doesn’t mind answering fairly obvious questions or working with an occasionally frazzled author. I have a couple ideas of what I’d like, but would definitely welcome your insights and ideas as well.
Again, I don’t have a lot of money, but I am willing to pay you something for your time and work (monetary and exposure, obviously). I’d be willing to give you a PDF of my first and 2nd novels for free (and some excerpts of the third: there’s a scene I’d really love to have illustrated that I think it would be fairly simple to sketch). If everything goes well, and you enjoy the job, I may even hire you in the future for cover art (if you were interested).
If you’re interested and/or want to know more, please please please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
Yesterday, I received an email from K.D. Callaghan, who was interviewed earlier for this site. She brought a new magazine to my attention: Vitality
They are specifically seeking asexual writers and submissions open again in May. It might be worth checking out. I’ve only skimmed it, but they seem to accept both short stories and poems.
Well, that’s it for now. New interview goes up today. So exciting!
