We’re doing a mini expansion of our stock collection and commissioning 5 new digital illustrations from disabled BIPOC artists. We’d love to work with at least 2 illustrators and pay $600 per piece.
Emerging and established illustrators are welcome. This time, we’re especially interested in commissioning artists that illustrate from their lived experience of being blind, visually impaired, and/or d/Deaf.
To apply, you’ll need a portfolio link and a short textual description of the illustration(s) you’d like to create.
In addition to being a disabled illustrator of color, you should be:
- 18 years of age or older
- In the United States
- Able to provide a completed W-9 form and sign a work-for-hire (independent contractor) agreement
Invisible disabilities, mental illnesses, and self-diagnoses are all valid. Disability is a wide spectrum and our goal is centering the BIPOC who experience it in various forms!
What to expect
- All artists will get a response by September 17, 2021.
- Selected illustrators will collaborate closely with Disabled And Here to develop their commissions, which should be: either a vector image or a JPG / PNG with at least 3 megapixels in resolution (2048 x 1536); mindful of color pairing and contrast; and accompanied by image descriptions.
- Artist payments will be sent by electronic bank payment or PayPal, through our fiscal sponsor Open Collective.
