Thanks guys for your interest. Is it possible for you both to show me some historical motivated work. Work not in a cartoon genre would be ideal.

My art is photo based – I can't draw nearly as nice as Jakar. The only thing I can come up with at 11pm on a Monday (besides the current TMBP masthead is this little piece:
The photo was staged with the Romans but modern power lines, a few spectators and the tank's owner were removed from the photo.
I take that back, the book cover, map and logo in the first photo are my handiwork as well as the map towards teh bottom of the page

How quickly do you need to make a decision? Most of my work is of machines for the packaging industry but if you can geive me a couple of days I may be able to pull something else together. Any particular time in history?

Some examples of my work on the front cover. It depends which era of history you are interested in.
But I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org

Well thank you all for your responses. I am very excited that there is so much interest out there.
Could everyone, interested in applying for the role of Graphic Artist, please submit an example of Horse and Musket work on an A4 size sheet to the following email address:
If any one does not know what is meant by Horse and Musket any Cavalry, Infantry examples from 1670-1870 will do. Although at this stage anything from 1670-1815 is prefered.
The company is not seeking a one off project but is looking at a minimum of one detailed piece of artwork a month for the next two years. That gentleman is our estimated minimum artwork projection. I am of the belief that it will end up being much, much more.
If you feel that you cannot devote the time to this we understand and thank you for your interest to date. If you feel that you can devote a minmum of one artwork per month then please proceed as follows:
Send a Horse and Musket A4 size example to email@example.com as described above.
Please include your various rates for artwork
Please do the above in the next three weeks. Projects to be completed and emailed by 12pm Monday the 14th of January EST.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to seeing everyone's applications.

I forgot to mention in my last update a very important point. Any work you send to me remains the property of the sender. You get to keep the copyright and I nor any one else will be allowed to use the said work without prior permission and payment to the artist.
The example is a means of determining the potential of a mutually beneficial business relationship.
No we are not looking for freebies.
Just thought I should clear that up before any work is sent in.

Well, I tried to paint some Jacobites using an inked illustration I did for a convention last year as the basis, but it doesn't seem like it's working. Maybe it's just Photoshop, maybe it's me. The back ground looks fine, but the rest, ugh
|David Pickelsimer ||13 Jan 2009 5:23 a.m. PST|
I see Monday the 14th as the day you would like it. Knowing that the 14th is Wed. and you said 3 weeks on a Wed. I have been going on Wed. the 14th as the completion date. If this is unacceptable let me know and I will not bother sending the illustration tomorrow.
|queveritas ||13 Jan 2009 10:07 p.m. PST|
The 14th is not a problem at all. My mistake for quoting a Monday. If there is need of an extension till friday you are all welcome to take it.
|David Pickelsimer ||16 Jan 2009 7:38 p.m. PST|
I have sent an image for your consideration. If you do not receive the email please let me know and I will resend. Thank you,
|queveritas ||19 Jan 2009 2:31 a.m. PST|
Thank you everyone that sent applications in. We shall be looking over them in the next few weeks. All will get feedback and be kept on file for future work.
