Last Chance For Fame As A Rising Graphic-Novel Artist

The train to fame at future ComicCon conventions -- the ride includes groupies dressed as the characters you've created -- is leaving the station, and there's only one last chance to get on board.

The Houston Press is looking for a young, local fan of graphic novels who's always hoped to break into the business. By "young" we just mean who's looking for a break, which is pretty broad. By "local" we do mean the Houston area, though, which isn't so broad.

We're putting together a package for a future cover story and we'd like to work with a local artist to do it. You'll get paid, of course.

Send a sample of your work to hairballscontest@houstonpress.com, but do it quickly -- we've already gotten a good response from our first call for entries, and the deadline is Friday.
