Hashtag Comics has had over a thousand applications in the first year of its internship program. Our internship program consists of a semester-long art audition where the applicant is assigned a script and is then critiqued, edited and coached through pencils, inks, colors and letters. Typically this takes a full semester. If your work is up to the quality, you will be selected to be assigned permanently in a paid position to the project and become a contract artist for Hashtag Comics.
You must be able to use the internet, take criticism, work in groups/teams, use Google Drive, Facebook and other associated industry media. You must be old enough to have power of attorney over yourself and enter into contracts. You will have a required amount of work to accomplish each week, inability to meet these deadlines without proper excuse will result in termination.
We don't require a degree, but you must be accomplished in sequential art with a unique style that is generally accepted as popular. You MUST have an online portfolio to accompany your application, if you don't, your application will not be considered.
