    If it is anything like writing other picture books, you don't, it is the publishers job to find an artist, you just write the text, dialogue, and description for each frame.

      Interesting! Good to know! I have never attempted anything like this, including illustrating any of my books, so this is quite helpful smile

      There are specific formats for writing up each frame for comic books.  A search on google should get results.  If my memory serves me well, one goes along the lines of Stan Lee, something like that.

    If you end up going the route of self publishing, or you just want someone to draw concept pages, then you could search through the artists on Deviant art. A lot of them already work for comic book companies and many will work for a commission. It's an option, though I don't imagine it would be cheap.

    I'm working on one for a small company. Since it relies so heavily on drawings, they want the drawings and the text together. I'm going to Guru.com to find my artist because I'm registered as a freelance writer there.

    Find an artist whose work you admire and then approach them about a collaboration.
