PITCH US A PAGE - Issue 9 | Mary Anning

Adult artists, ages 13 and up.

For issue nine, we will be accepting original illustration pitches from adult artists of all skill levels. These pitches should have something to do with the issue nine featured woman, Mary Anning, and anything that relates to her life and career field (paleontology, geology, dinosaurs, earth sciences, etc).  If interested in submitting a pitch, please read the guidelines below.

In an email, please include:

-Your portfolio or samples of your work with links to your website and social media accounts.

-A brief bio and why you think your style would be a good fit for Bravery.

-A brief pitch of your illustration idea.

optional but helpful: a rough sketch of your illustration idea.

After reviewing all of the pitches submitted, we will choose the artist and pitch that fits most organically with the issue. We will then develop the idea with that artist and hire that person as we do all other hired artists. There will be a contract and compensation agreed upon before starting the development of the page.

All pitches must be submitted by July 3, 2019, no exceptions. Pitches delivered after the due date will not be considered. Please email all images to The subject of the email must be ISSUE 9 ART PITCH
