Know your worth! A comic page takes hours of work and you should be appropriately paid for it. If you like the idea of a comic’s idea and want to volunteer your time, by all means, go for it, but don’t let someone tell you that your time and work are worth less than ten cents.
People Seeking Artists:
Know the worth of what you’re asking. If you’re looking for volunteers, just say that. Don’t beat around the bush, and by all means, do NOT insinuate that an artist’s work is worth less than ten cents.
If you want to find dedicated artists who are willing to help you, offer them something. Offer input on the project. Offer them a free copy. Offer them something in exchange for all their hard work and dedication.
