Well I am excited, I was just told that this image I submitted to Washington Trails Association last year, in a trip report, will be used in the upcoming print issue of the Trails Magazine. They are featuring the Colonel Bob Peak hike in the upcoming issue, and will be mailing me a copy at that time.
I’m not an artist, but I have more than a few friends who are, so I thought this might be a good thing to post.
I used to do freelance illustration and gd, this is sound advice.
No free work and get paid on signing the contract. Otherwise they will take ur shit and never pay you.
Never send anything in to be ‘chosen’ unless it’s a comp. If u send any work in they must pay you for it even if they decide they’re ‘not going to use it after all’.
