An internship opportunity at Oni Press!

An internship opportunity at Oni Press!

Tue, 11/08/2011 - 17:56 by Ananth in response to jw vol.2 cover

Here are the inks for the cover of volume 2! We are delivering the last of the book files tomorrow, and if all goes according to plan we'll have them in time for the holidays. Will keep you posted!

A lot of you send me e-mails asking about how to get into comics, including people who aren't illustrators or writers. Here is a great opportunity: 2012 Internships at Oni Press! Here is a quick clip:

An intern interacts with every department of the company but will also choose a focus department they desire more knowledge about. These focuses are:

-We teach you specific details about editing sequential art including comic coverage, story development, copy editing, book mapping, and proofing.

Design & Production
-We teach you specific details to the design and production of a title including technical skills, ad design, logo design, cover & spine design, and interior book design.

Sales & Marketing
-We teach you specific details to the sales and marketing of a title including generating models, convention planning, creator signings, sales analysis, and developing marketing plans.

This is a chance to get some real, substantial knowledge on the inner workings of a comics publisher, and a great opportunity to learn the ins and outs of the publishing side of comics. Here's a Tumblr post for you guys to reblog if you think your friends might be interested. I can tell you from personal experience that these guys are really nice and totally ready to put your enthusiasm to good use.  

See you Thursday!

Did anyone else see all the happy faces in the building to the left of Yuko...?

Ehehe, I love it! The attitude! The crisp lines! The side-of-building smileys!

Also man what I'd give to be in school right now. Will pass this along!

I Can't Wait >w<

1) YAY VOL 2! Excited!
2) YAY comics internship! So sad I didn't hear about this before I graduated. Definitely letting the graphic novel society at my old school know about this :D

My name is Joy in real life and I thought you were someone I knew. But you weren't.

The cover looks amazing! I am very excited to hold this book in my hands.

So angry!

I'm sorry but John immediately steals the spot light of any image that he is in for me. His expressions are always so poignant, I can tell exactly what he is thinking.

They always make me laugh, so I've been trying to not look at him and save him for "the finale", if that makes sense.

It's very beautiful cover image! Thanks for posting up the internship information, I would totally apply for it if my school wasn't a complete super giant tosser when dealing with internship credits and doing more than one internship. Also, last semester of senior year @_@. Maybe i'll be able to do it for three months once I graduate, the experience is still valuable!

The cover looks amazing! The perspective, all the little details, the line weight, it all looks great.

This cover is pretty kick-butt!

I'm liking the cover! It definitely has a "sequel" feel to it(if that makes ANY sense at all)!
As for this Oni-Press Internship deal... I dunno if that would be a good or bad idea for me at this point in time. I would definitely want to know more about the other side of comic-book production, but I also would like to spend that time getting better on the creator's side now...
It's all a bit flustering right now...
I dunno...

Thank you so much for posting that information on the internship! I've been freaking out for a while now about it. Congratulations on Volume 2!

It's so sad

Anyone else notice the tiny face on Conrad's hair? ;D I remember that comic.


Comment by Sam (not verified) Wed, 11/09/2011 - 20:54

I heard Yuko went back and added tiny eyes to Conrad's hair on every comic he's in.
