About spec work.
I don't do it.
I don't do spec work.
No matter how cool it is, I will not work on your project under the premise that it will make money to split on later.
We have our own passion projects to see through, our own artists (and musicians, and programmers) to pay for. 
We respect these professionals, their skill sets, and their expertise enough to pay them a living wage.
This means thousands of dollars.
We don't approach these artists until we know we can pay them for their work.
That means we have the money sitting in a bank, ready to be transferred into their hard working hands.
I respect artists;  writers, musicians, illustrators--the whole lot of 'em. If I want their talent on my project, I pay them for it.
If you can't afford me that same respect, don't contact me. My answer is no.

Sample Comic Artist's Contract
=======What is a contract? Why use one?=======
A contract is a legal document stating the conditions of a job/partnership/other agreement. It is a written version of what has been agreed upon so there is no confusion.
Contracts protect both/all parties involved. They ensure that creators get their artistic needs met, and artists/writers/editors/etc. get credited and payed.
Contracts are not about a lack of trust. A contract is a written promise. You will do your end, they will do theirs. No one side is targeted. The creator does not need this to be sure the artist works, the artist does not need this to be sure the creator holds up their end. It's so both know what is expected, and what will happen. There is no reason not to have a contract, even between friends.
=======How to use this one=======
Contracts can be tricky to write. Especially if you're not familiar with the legal jargon involved. Let's face it, if we all were keen to reading legal jargon

Hi. Whoops. Fuck. I'm here. I'm going to clear out a lot of shit, make it look a little pretty, but yeah. I should still post my stuff here. Probably. 

It's a Sunday and I'm trying to stop pushing my ass with drawing way too much. Need to rest my hand. 

Also how fucking hilarious is it that I keep doing this around march of every year. Yeah.

Comic Artist, Illustrator, 3D Artist-in-training (perpetually, as usual.) In an attempt to unify my brand across the internet, I've set up shop under a new deviantART username (instead of the one I had through school.)

I have a comic now. It's super shiny. You should also go support it too.

You want to see my old stuff? Click Here for my portfolio. Most of what's worth looking at is there. Otherwise, you can always check on some of my works-in-progress in my WIP Tag on my Tumblr.
