Ken Eppstein, the head honcho over at our friendly neighborhood NIX Comics, is looking for a few good artists. Well, actually, he's looking for ONE good artist, but never mind that right now. Ken is prepping for the fourth issue of NIX Comics Quarterly and is in search of a cover artist. As he writes on the NIX website, "it will require someone with a decent feel for the rock music/horror comic crossover material that is the bread 'n' butter of Nix Comics Quarterly." The artist that gets the gig will receive $300 for the cover art upon completion, plus 12 contributor copies of the book after printing is complete. The initial print run will be 2500 books. "If we are lucky enough to go into a second print, we'll negotiate a second deal for use of your art."
All the details and such can be found at the NIX Comics website.

What do these things have in common?
They all oozed out of the mind and hands of Michael Neno and will be on display at the Wild Goose Creative from Oct.20 until Oct. 24. There you will witness a wide variety of Mr. Neno's comic book art pages, story book illustrations, webcomic art, minicomics, as well as an example of Michael's working process from notes to the finished page. There will be a gala opening on Thursday night from 7p-10p complete with exhibition notes, comic-related music, and snacks to fill the margins.
Mr. Neno is a recipient of a Xeric Grant and the Ohio Governor's Award of Excellence. He's been writing, drawing, lettering, coloring and publishing comic books since the 1980s. Michael's also curated three previous exhibits at Wild Goose Creative (including "Hey Kids! A History of Comic Book Advertising" which was featured throughout the 2010 Wild Goose Creative Geekfest).
