Journal
average pay rates for comic book artists:
"Generally, the good graphic novels fetch $100 - $300 per page, although professionals who have been in the industry for a long time can command as much as three times that amount. In fact, one elite illustrator commanded as much as $1,000 a page (on a 22-page comic book)! Most of the popular titles that artists, like David Cassaday, work on are monthly issues, which end up providing him with a six-figure salary. The back-end royalties on merchandise, trade paperbacks and movie royalties are also generous."

"In 2008, Sean Jordan, founder of Army Ant Publishing, claimed established freelance comic book artists were paid anywhere from $220 to $4,400 per book project, which breaks down to $10 to $200 per page. Pencil and inker artists can ask for $75 to $200 a page. Colorists often fall in the range of $35 to $125, and writers and letterers make $10 to $50 a page.

I'm kind of a jack of all trades. I enjoy writing, sewing and most of all drawing. I'm going to be trying my hand at sculpting and mold making soon as well. I've been drawing since I was a preschooler (maybe even before that) and while I did take a couples years of art classes in the hopes of earning a bachelor's degree in graphic design, I'm mostly self taught. Same with the sewing and crocheting. Right now, I'm stepping into the convention circuit in my hometown of Houston TX in hopes of meeting fellow artists as well as making a name for myself.

Right now my time is split between a rowdy three year old, my silly but loving fiancé, a full time job in Accounts Payable and whatever project I'm working on.

Update as of August 2015:

I am now under contract with Inklings Publishing, an indie book publisher based out of Houston, TX.

Update as of April 28th 2016:
I'm currently working on my first graphic novel! More details coming soon!

Update as of July 9th 2016:
It's official. I am now working on the first chapter of my graphic novel series.
