We are currently seeking contract Lead Action Fantasy Webcomic Artists to work on one of several original IPs. As a webcomic artist, you will be the lead artist for a new story world, building out the next beloved IP alongside your team which consists of a primary writer, additional artists, and the Storygrounds creative support team.

For this project, we are targeting an action-fantasy setting that captures anime and Eastern webcomic aesthetics.
