Want to join the team of Redline Artists? Here’s how! Applications are now open!

Please make sure to read the WHOLE post before you send us an email. If you fail to follow the guidelines we might ignore your email and not consider your application alongside others. 

*This post expires on August 24th, 2018*

If redlining art seems like a fun and fulfilling experience for you, then you can apply to be one of the artists on the team! A Redline Artist will look at the submission box, choose an art piece that they feel comfortable redlining, draw their corrections on top of it, and then post it to the blog alongside the original. They can also reblog useful art reference posts to the blog or create tutorials and post them here!

This is a volunteer position, meaning that you will not be paid, and that your obligations to the blog are entirely based on how much free time you have. There’s no minimum-posts-per-month. If you apply and get in, you can redline whenever you have the time to do so, since you are the one offering up your advice for free.

In order to apply to be a Redline Artist, you have to have some prior experience in art. Read on if you think you might be interested!

  • You need to be at least 18 years old
  • You need to have a tumblr account
  • You need to have made at least 6 drawings/illustrations in the past 12 months

In order to see if you’re a good fit for the Redline team, it would help us if you were to send us some examples of your work in an email. Please read the below instructions carefully - although your ability to read instructions does not make you a worse or better artist, it does help us decide whether you should be trusted to politely and maturely critique someone’s work.

You’ll need…

  • A link to your tumblr where you have plenty of your drawings posted (doesn’t have to be your art tumblr, it can be personal, but make sure we can easily find your drawings)
  • At least 3 ATTACHED examples of your work, including…
  • A full-body drawing of a human
  • A full-body drawing of any kind of animal
  • A redline of ONE of the following drawings:

or

or

or

or

or

Attach examples of your art AND a redline of one of the drawings above, and…

Q: Do my example drawings all have to be realism?

A: No, not at all! They could be semi-realism or be leaning more towards an anime style or a cartoony style. However, they should show that you understand how the baseline anatomy works. So for example, drawing something like Jake from Adventure Time would NOT be good for showing us whether or not you can draw a dog. But if you wanted to draw Tramp from Lady and the Tramp, that would be adequate.

Q: Do the drawings have to be full-color?

A: No! They can be black and white or cleaned up sketches. As long as we can see it clearly, you’re good.

Q: Do all my example drawings have to be from the last 12 months?  

A: Nope! You can send us older examples. The only thing we ask is that you have drawn SOMETHING in the last 12 months. They don’t all have to match the description of the examples.

Q: Can my examples be nsfw?

A: The examples can have artistic nudity, but please don’t send us examples of porn. We don’t care if you draw porn in your free time, but we would prefer not to see it.

Q: Does my redline need comments?

A: Nope, just the redline is fine! We just want to see an example of how you would adjust/critique the work if you were to become a mod.

Q: I sent an application email to the blog before and didn’t get accepted. Should I reapply?

Yes. 

Mod Chekhov thought to keep the emails from previous applicants, but the rules of applications have since changed (we now require an example redline). Because of this, and because the email for the applications has also changed, it will be easier and more fair for everyone if we received fresh applications. Sorry for the confusion!

Q: I applied last time. Should my examples be the same or can I send new ones?

A: That’s up to you! Treat it as a whole new application.

So, what are you waiting for?

Send all emails to: theredlinestation@gmail.com (emails to the old submission address will be ignored). We will review your application over the next few weeks and reply to your inquiry by our decided deadline.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!

5 Myths About Becoming a Flight Director

Have you ever wondered if you have what it takes to become a NASA Flight Director? 

They are historically well known for making difficult calls and guiding the crew through “Houston, we’ve had a problem” situations, but in all spaceflight operations, they are ultimately responsible for the success of the mission.

We’re looking for a new class of Flight Directors to join our team, and there are a few things to know.

Here are a few myths about becoming a Flight Director:

MYTH: You have to have already been a flight controller in Mission Control at NASA to become a flight director.

FACT: Although many flight directors have previously been NASA flight controllers, that is not a prerequisite to apply. The necessary experience could come from the military, other spaceflight organizations or areas that operate in similar high-stakes conditions.

MYTH: You have to already have a special spaceship flying license to apply.

FACT: The only place to get certified is on the job at NASA. Once chosen, the new flight directors will receive training on flight control and vehicle systems, as well as operational leadership and risk management.

MYTH: All flight directors have advanced degrees like, a PhD.

FACT: While a Bachelor’s degree in engineering, biological science, physical science, computer science or mathematics from an accredited university is necessary, an advanced degree is not required to become a flight director.

MYTH: Flight directors are required to have experience in the space industry.

FACT: While you need at least three years of related, progressively responsible professional experience to apply, it can come from a variety of industries as long as it represents time-critical decision-making experience in high-stress, high-risk environments.

MYTH: Only astronauts become flight directors and vice versa.

FACT: To date, only one astronaut, T.J. Creamer, has become a flight director, and no flight directors have become astronauts. However, members of the flight controller teams have become astronauts. The “capsule communicator,” or CAPCOM, role in Mission Control is more often filled by astronauts because the CAPCOM is the one responsible for relaying the flight director’s decisions to the astronauts in space.

Okay, but What are the requirements?

Basic Qualification Requirements

Applicants must meet the following minimum requirements before submitting an application:

  • Be a U.S. citizen.
  • Have a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution in engineering, biological science, physical science, computer science or math.
  • Have at least three years of related, progressively responsible professional experience.

Applications for our next Flight Director class open on March 26! Visit: go.nasa.gov/FlightDirector
