Art by Thomas Nast (1840-1902) the king of editorial caricature

Scott Kennedy of the New Jersey local paper The Montclair Dispatch writes to say he’s looking to hire an editorial caricature artist.

This is a paid opportunity, although it it geared towards student, “The time has come to add in the Caricaturists. Students who are looking for their first opportunity, a place to start their professional resume work in the field they hope to be successful in,” writes Kennedy.

Attn:  SVA gals and guys?

This is, as are all openings at The Montclair Dispatch, an opportunity for a current student who is interested in a career as an Editorial Caricature Artist, Political Cartoonist and or an Editorial Illustrator.

This is a paid opportunity.

Quality, talent and skill should be progressing towards art similar to award winning artists Rob Rogers and Phil Hands

If you or someone you know are interested in this position please send a sample color image and brief introduction to me for review.

As with all job openings, please don’t give away your work for minimal page rates, or give up all rights in perpetuity. At the same time, beginner jobs are the right place for some people. Others will just move straight to Tumblr and then Cartoon Network.

The Montclair Dispatch is available weekly in both print and digital form and covers goings on in the greater Montclair area, Glen Ridge, Bloomfield, and Verona.
