Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

We're all about hope and opportunity here at the Houston Press. That's why we're looking to give a lucky break to some local frustrated artist out there who sees him- or herself as a graphic novelist.

If you can out-Watchmen the Watchmen, if your notebooks are filled with Dark Knight images that out-Millers Frank Miller, this could be your big shot.

We're looking for someone who could have some fun with a project we're putting together for a future cover story. Someone who is from the Houston area.

You'll get paid, of course -- we're not into indentured slavery here -- but we're looking to give someone a jump start on a career where such starts can be hard to come by.

Send some drawing samples to hairballscontest@houstonpress.com and put "graphic artist" in the header. It may take some time for us to go through them all, but we'll eventually be in touch.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
