From Oni Press
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.
At San Diego Comic-Con we will be conducting the Oni Press Talent Search in lieu of portfolio reviews. In order to guarantee a portfolio review appointment with an Oni editor during regular convention hours you will need to illustrate one or more of the three scripts provided. In addition to presenting the original art at the review session, interested parties must also bring with them 8 Â½â€x11â€³ photocopies of both penciled art and inked art for Oni Press to keep as reference. Each photocopied page should include the artistâ€™s name, phone number, and e-mail address. The samples are preferred in a manila envelope that also includes the artistâ€™s name and contact information in the address line.
