I'm putting together an anthology of short comic book stories that I've done over the past couple years. I need to hire a cover artist for it.

Any suggestions? Pro, non-pro, whatever. I've got a few bucks (not a fortune) to put towards hiring someone of caliber if I have to.

I've already hit up Professor Oreo here because I think he's the bee's knees.

That page makes me dizzy trying to read it. I hate it when people make their MySpace pages look "fancy".

Depends on what style you're overall looking for. I know a good few people I can recommend.

I'm still curious as to what kind of style or whatever, you're looking for.

Juan is fucking awesome. I'm puzzled why one of the big two haven't leapt at the chance to get him in with them. The guys on a level with Cassaday in my book.

And he's already shown that he does covers for some of the smaller publishers like Dakkuwakka, etc. He's also a VERY cool dude, so that's an added bonus.

Well, me too, actually. The stories in my book are all over the genre map (horror, humor, WWII love story, sci-fi, fantasy). I guess I'm open to just about anything.

Just "visually striking" with a "holy shit" factor?

I only read Rex Mundi in the trades, but I loved his work on the short lived Small Gods. It's just shocking that he's not become a household name in the industry by now.

Well, my favorite person in the whole wide world is Michelle Silva. (The girl drawing my book, Love Buzz.) She's got a DA account if you wanna hit her up.

The first person I thought of after reading the thread title was Beland, but as Len said, really depends on what kind of style you're looking for.

You serious? Dude, that'd be cool. Especially considering you illustrated one of the stories going in the book.

Again depending on the style your looking for you could try Burke on the forum here. Look him up, or check out his art thread on the forum here.
