    Part of UpWork's “Expert-Vetted” group, which is invitation-only to the top 1% of professionals. Clients: Coca Cola, Fidelity, Google, Intel, McDonald’s, Ralph Lauren, and Time Warner. My work has appeared in The Atlantic, Forbes, and Wall Street Journal. I've had the good fortune to illustrate books published by Pearson, Penguin-Random House, McGraw-Hill, Macmillan, Prentice Hall, Harvard Business Review Press, including several bestsellers. A small percentage of my work comes from Upwork, (the majority are repeat clients, referrals, and clients from my agent.) For this reason, I am selective, and bid on projects for which I feel I can do excellent work. The best cartoons are more than just artwork. They depend upon funny concepts and writing. If you already have ideas for cartoons that you would like illustrated, I can give you publishing quality artwork to bring them to life. If you also need concepts and/or humor writing, I can assist with it. I am a published humor writer, and many of my clients hire me to create humor and concepts for marketing, advertising, publishing and presentations. I also have an experienced 2D animator and storyboard artist on my team. ———- ♾️ “Mark did an absolutely fantastic job illustrating my book. Better yet, he was a pleasure to work with--a model of professionalism and high standards." —Daniel Pink, New York Times Bestselling Author ♾️ "The cartoons Mark created for us to advertise our new technology have received a huge response." -- Randy Harrel, Vice President, Director of Marketing, CISCO SYSTEMS. ♾️ "Mark: I so appreciate your help through the process of creating cartoons for my book and its promotional tour. While I’ve been working other New Yorker cartoonists, I’ve relied most heavily on you. I think your capacity to capture an idea visually is akin to magic."   - Author, Gary Hamel. "Humanocracy", published by Harvard Business Review Press Recent highlights: Created a series of humorous cartoons for Google. Hired by Intel Corporation to design and create a series of animated commercials to introduce a new technology. Worked with Time Warner to design and create a cartoon spokesmen for their advertising.

Whether you have a multi-part series or a simple idea you would like to see visualized in a comic, novel, or singular image, I am here to help. I'm super dedicated to helping people bring their ideas to life, whether it's for themselves or to be shared. Being a writer myself, I have been on both sides of production and I can not only help with materializing your ideas but can also offer advice for how the writing can itself prop up the illustrations.

    I have been writing, acting and performing comedy for over 25 years. For the past 13 years, I've been a stay-at-home dad, which has given me books and books of comedic material. I find myself with lots of time in between school pick-ups and kid sporting events, so I thought, why not utilize said time by doing some brain work for other people?! I enjoy sitting up at night, typing, and quietly laughing at my own jokes, but I'm also good at breaking stories, suggesting new plotlines, and championing your project. I co-wrote and co-created a web series for Atomic Wedgie (a subsidiary of Freemantle). I've written 3 screenplays (comedy and horror) and 3 pilot scripts, 2 of which have been in consideration by executives at CBS, FX, and JAX Media. I've also written for National Lampoon, TROOP! and The Riot Act and cultivated a career as a Voice Over artist and just to round it all out, I recently started Podcasting, although I'm still trying to figure out what that means. I have a BFA from Emerson College, and I do enjoy long walks on the beach but only on short beaches. Oh, and I'm a Libra. Which apparently means something. Let me help you!

How to Hire Top Comic Freelancers

What is a comic freelancer?

A comic freelancer is an artist who specializes in creating stylized artwork ranging from comic-book-style cartoon drawings to manga-inspired artwork. Comic freelancers may use a variety of tools and methods to create their artwork, including pencil, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and computer animation software.

How do you hire a comic freelancer?

You can source comic freelancers on Upwork by following these three steps:

  • Write a project description. You’ll want to determine your scope of work and the skills and requirements you are looking for in a comic freelancer.
  • Post it on Upwork. Once you’ve written a project description, post it to Upwork. Simply follow the prompts to help you input the information you collected to scope out your project.
  • Shortlist and interview comic freelancers. Once the proposals start coming in, create a shortlist of the professionals you want to interview. 

Of these three steps, your project description is where you will determine your scope of work and the specific type of comic freelancer you need to complete your project.

How much does it cost to hire a comic freelancer?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

  • An experienced comic freelancer may command higher fees but also work faster, have more-specialized areas of expertise, and deliver higher-quality work.
  • A contractor who is still in the process of building a client base may price their comic freelancer services more competitively. 

Rates typically charged by comic freelancers on Upwork are:

  • Beginner: $15 per hour
  • Intermediate: $31 per hour
  • Advanced: $85 per hour

Which one is right for you will depend on the specifics of your project. 

How do you write a comic freelancer job post?

Your job post is your chance to describe your project scope, budget, and talent needs. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a contractor to know if they’re the right fit for the project.

Job post title

Create a simple title that describes exactly what you’re looking for. The idea is to target the keywords that your ideal candidate is likely to type into a job search bar to find your project. Here are some sample comic freelancer job post titles:

  • Need comic artist to help me bring my superhero ideas to life
  • New graphic novel publisher looking for experienced artist
  • Can you draw comics in the Peanuts style? We want to talk to you

Project description

An effective comic freelancer job post should include: 

  • Scope of work: From creating in Adobe Illustrator to drawings in different comic styles, list all the deliverables you’ll need. 
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project. 
  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain genres, software, or styles, mention this here. 
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.
