  • Image FX and Digital Artist mags

    Hey, do the Illustrators that have work in Imagine FX and Digital Artist mags get paid? and how do you get one of those slots?

  • #2
    If the article is about an illustrator, generally no, they don't get paid.
    The guy who writes the article does.
    Same goes for tutorials.

    If the illustration is in an ad, then the illustrator paid to be in there.

    I don't get either mag, so not sure what happens regarding 'featured artist' type articles. The featured artist may get paid, but most likely not.

      Get in contact with the editors of the magazines.

      I send article ideas to editors of some magazines and if the article is interesting/relevant/etc. they ask me to write the full article and send it in, and then they send me a cheque.

      I also produce a magazine here - and I contact various authors, past, previous and present, to submit article ideas (give them an outline template) and then we ask the ones we want to write the full article. And we also encourage new people to submit article ideas.


      First step is getting in touch with the editor.

      If you want advertise then get in touch with the marketing department.

        It's good exposure, promotion and marketing to be featured, if you are talented and fast and it will lead to sales and commissions. A lot of up and coming Illustrators pursue the editors to be placed in to the edition.

              Yeah I guess it can bring an artist lots of attention. I just thought that those guys/gals were getting paid to be in there.

                It's also about what you can bring in to the Magazine. I don't know about these two but if you want to get an article into a sign industry mag, you pretty much have to do something revolutionary, and be willing to go into detail how you did it, in order to get an article about you in there. It's funny how something is 'revolutionary' about once every 3 years though. I see articles about things I've been doing for 15 years like it was dreamed up yesterday.

                  Yeah, it's looking a bit drab.

                  Here's a paraphrased version of an actual conversation I had with our HR department a few months back. Seriously.

                  And for a beach party, I'm sure you can do better than this photo of a pier.
