Do you always feel inspired after looking at art work featured in your favorite comics? Are you a cartoonist and need someone to take a peak at your work? Cartoonist and illustrator Jillian Tamaki would like to assist you! Tamaki’s art has appeared in graphic novels she’s helped co-create such as This One Summer and publications such as The New York Times.
As Tamaki mentioned in a twitter post, she’s looking to provide two six month mini-mentorships to cartoonists not currently enrolled in arts school. This is for anyone of any age and artist level, and one is based in Toronto, while another can be located anywhere.
I've been thinking about how to teach and mentor outside of art school institutions. So I'm gonna try this and see how it goes. Deadline is Aug 15. pic.twitter.com/NBnGSgpb3u

As stated in her tweet, “introduce yourself, links to portfolio, a CV if you have one (not mandatory), a description of your project and your goals. Please send PDFs, not WeTransfers.”
