    Howdy there gents,

    I'm just starting out as a recruiter for animators and 3d/2d artists and I'm planning on attending Wizard Chicago con to start filling my roster. My agenda is just to get artists work. I'm a comic freak and a writer and have come to the conclusion that this line of work is a great way to keep my foot in the animation/comic realm.

    My question is this: What are the major hang-ups/concerns that artists have when working with a recruiter?

    Just testing the waters to get an idea of what to expect when approaching artists.

    Thanks,

    Lins.

    I don't get it, you're becoming a talent agent? Is that what recruiter means or are you working for a company recruiting new talent?

    Yup, I could be considered a talent agent. No I'm not working for a bigger company. Just me, small business.

    :)

    Throw lots of money at them. They like that.

    I would say that most artists might be a little worried about the commission that a 'recruiter' charges . . . if you do in fact charge a percentage . . . which I imagine you do; especially since the pay isn't exactly 'rock star' treatment . . .

    I've never met an agent, but wouldn't mind working with one if they could get me work, though . . . in my area, there is little to no demand for conventional illustrators
