Artists Workshop

Current Résumé

Your résumé should include all published drawing experience, comics related and beyond. Sequential art experience is preferred but not required.

Short Composition

A short composition is no longer than the space provided, which is equivalent to about a page, double-spaced and in size 12 font, or 2000 characters (with spaces). It should tell us why you want to be a DC comic book artist and how your background will add a unique perspective to our publishing portfolio.

Art Portfolio

Applicants must upload a portfolio that includes up to five pages of art: at least three pages of sequential art (preferably three pages in sequence with one another) and no more than two illustrations. The pages must be uploaded as JPEGs or PNG files ONLY, with a 1 MB limit for each page. You may also send us links to a file share or blog site such as DeviantArt. Portfolios that do not include sequential art cannot be considered. You are welcome to use the sample scripts on our Inspiration PageArtists are encouraged but not required to represent DC characters from the list below. We will, however, want to see how you handle our characters’ likenesses during the workshop.

You are only required to upload pencils, but we will also accept the finished inks and/or colors as long as you are the penciller AND inker. Neither inks nor colors are required, and we want to see YOUR work and not somebody else’s.

Submission Agreement

We must have your submission agreement to review your portfolio. Make sure both your signature and all required information are at the bottom. The agreement must be uploaded to your application before the deadline. Faxes and e-mails of this document will not be accepted. Please take into account the time it will take to submit your submission agreement when applying.
