Looking for artistic starry interns!

With the success of recruiting three starry research interns, I am moving on to looking for three artist starry interns! 

These starry interns will be responsible for:

1. Assisting with the comics,

2. Help design a few graphics for social media

3. Creating patterns for the blog backgrounds

and more!

If you feel qualified and want to add this as experience for your resume, send an email with a few samples of your work at

Once you send me an email, I will send you a starry art/design test and then we’ll go from there!

Good luck, and I look forward to your responses!
