ShaneWSmith's Profile Picture
Shane Walsh-Smith
SHANE W SMITH is an Australian graphic novelist. He has a Bachelor's degree in Creative Writing, and a number of published graphic novels, including the 2013 Aurealis Award finalist Peaceful Tomorrows. His oddest achievement is getting a comic published in a refereed academic journal in 2007.


I am a writer looking to hire an artist to produce the artwork for Undad #2.

I did the artwork for Undad #1, and it can be found here for reference:

The pages are square, each with either one or four panels apiece. If you think your style would work to complement this existing format and world, and these characters, please get in touch!

The payment on offer is $35 (AUD) per page, totalling $1400 for the entire job of 40 pages. For promo purposes, I may commission some artwork for you to put onto the Kickstarter page - this will also be paid.

Your payment will be funded by an upcoming Kickstarter campaign. (I am happy to send a link to the preview Kickstarter page via private messaging or email on request.) If the campaign ultimately fails to raise its funding target, we will part ways without you having to invest any uncompensated time or effort.

To reiterate, at no point will I be asking for any work for free/exposure.

I am also seeking expressions of interest from artists who might like to take a crack at cover design for two issues of Undad. This would be commissioned work also (work done and paid for upon completion of the Kickstarter) for $100 AUD per cover.

Thanks for your time.
Shane W Smith
