I recently started working with The Globe and Mail - specifically their reader submitted essay column Facts & Arguments. Very happy to be working with these guys.
I've already seen improvement in my work by doing these. I tend to draw things I see in real life. I take tons of photos. I'm most inspired by places around me and the feelings of those places, and I don't really consider myself very visually clever or conceptual. But these pieces have been a really great opportunity to get better at creating worlds and feelings that are outside of my own experience.
