Street Roots is an award-winning, nonprofit, social justice advocacy newspaper in Portland, Ore.
We are looking for a talented graphic artists interested in getting published who can work with Street Roots on an as-needed basis. This would mean periodic requests for artwork to pair with stories: Like this one:
We currently have a story coming in about the food stamp cuts and the health are damage that can cause children. A simple illustration, black and white, of an empty bowl, perhaps, or something straightforward, could be a major piece of art in the paper. This deadline for this particular piece is Tuesday, Jan. 28. We work on pretty tight deadlines.
We can pay a flat rate for quality work, which could be with stories or as standalone graphics. Pay is to be determined.
Please inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org, either with samples of your work, or with the example noted above by Tuesday. Either way, we’re looking to develop relationships with artists for the newspaper as the months progress.
