A friend of mine and myself are currently working on a comic book concept. Problem is we don't have an artist to help create the actual characters, locations, kwk. themselves. How should we go about finding an artist?

Pay them long term money. A stable income will guarantee a loyal and cooperative artist.

Finding an artist isn't difficult. There's Deviant Art where I found mine. There's also a ton of comic artist groups on Facebook. However some of the things you stated needing help with are writer/creator duties. Unless you plan to have this artist become part of your business (as opposed to being an artist for hire. You should keep those "creation of intellectual property" type of duties in house so that you don't suffer the legal entanglements of rights and ownership issues later on. Once you have that sorted out make sure that you and the artist have a very concrete agreement in terms of payment and payment schedule and for GOD'S SAKE HONOR YOUR AGREEMENT!!!! Good artists are hard enough to find so don't become one of the horror stories that they tell.

No, I mean the visual aspects.

That's why I said I need an artist for the long haul, not just one for commission work. I need the artist to be a part of creating the visual aspects of the concept.

Establish realistic payment, rates, processes and publicity. What is in it for the illustrator?

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
