A great opportunity for figure artists working with the male figure…..

I will post from time to time opportunities for artists. Not the normal contests that cost $15 to $50 to enter and then if selected you have to buy a frame and pay shipping. The goal here is to find opportunities for little cost that can bring wide exposure to the artist.

This is a great opportunity to work with firehouse publications. They are looking for writers and figure artists, that work at least 50% of the time with the male figure to help them produce a quarterly book on the male figure in art. Below is a showing of the book on amazon. It seems to be of great use to the artist and receives great reviews. This is a large publishing company so this might lead to another job with another publication with the company.

It doesn’t cost anything to apply. Email them that you are interested, send a sample, you will get a quick response. I was interested in another opportunity the company listed but it had closed already. They responded to email within a few hours.

Its very frustrating to spend hours on end working on a piece or making a portfolio for a specific company and you NEVER hear back. They say they are too busy but the artist probably put in 40 hours making the piece so they can spend 15 seconds typing a response.  Sometimes the artist even pays to ship some samples via a cd.  We as artists deserve to know if our work fits the task at hand or if it doesn’t let us know what we can change.

Enough rambling, the link for this company is below. GOOD LUCK! Please let me know if you have success!
