Graphic Novel Illustrators

James Lorimer & Company is a small independent Canadian book publisher. We are looking to expand our publishing program to include graphic novels and have several opportunities open to illustrators.

We are looking for graphic novelists to adapt non-fiction books from our adult list into graphic novel format for use primarily in secondary schools.

Topics many include wealth inequality, basic income, the environment, and the oil industry. For an idea of the type of project we are envisioning, please see the book Understanding the Crash by Seth Tobocman.

To see the types of books we publish, please visit

We are also looking for illustrators to adapt a series of books on Canadian who have been wrongfully convicted (Real Justice series) into graphic novel format. The narrative format editions of these books can be found on our website at

If you are interested in this opportunity, please apply with a covering letter, CV, and links to samples of your works.

Note that this project will likely be royalty based and that the fee below is the advance against royalties. Once the advance has “earned out,” illustrators will receive royalties annually for the life of the publication.

  • Ability to take direction and feedback well and work as a team.
