Artist needed!

September 17, 2016

Hey all, if anyone can recommend or suggest an artist, I’d be grateful! I have a project in mind, and I’m interested in the Bruce Timm style (Batman: The Animated Series), so something close to that would be awesome.

There is money in this, so hopefully that can entice some people. I’ve had a lot of people flake out or simply not respond, so if you leave a comment with some suggestions, that would be even more awesome.

Thanks in advance!

Last week, I turned 35 (I know, I should have faked my age long ago!), and I feel like things aren’t going the way I’d hoped with writing. I mean, I graduated college ten years ago, and I’m just now starting to have some semblance of success (Hey! Stop laughing! It is too success…sort of…) with my stories, and I always fight with myself over whether or not I should just quit.

Well, I’ll never quite. I’ve tried. I can’t. Writing is as much a part of me as my beautiful hazel eyes and massive chest muscles (Hey! Stop laughing again! It’s not that bad…), and I’ll never quit. Maybe quit trying for this to be my career, but that’s neither here nor there. Until I give up, I have an idea that might just work for me.

I’ve loved comic books for almost my entire life. I keep thinking of turning some of my stories into comic books. As a longtime lover of the medium, I think a lot of my stuff could easily and awesomely make a good transition from words to pictures with words.

We’re talking pirates…we’re talking monsters, aliens, space ships, fantasy, romance, adventure, swords, blood, sweat, tears, sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll!

Seriously…it’s all there, and it could all work. I’m sure it’ll go through Kickstarter, but again, we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.

Anyone know a good artist who can work pro bono?

There can be similar ideas on the market. Hell, there can be total ripoffs that foster just enough changes to make it seem okay.

Yesterday, DC Comics released their new title, Black Canary #1. It’s awesome, and I’m really glad I took a chance on it. Also, I love the art style!

But the story of this issue is very similar to a short story I wrote a few years ago. It was never published, and I can’t claim that the writer of the comic stole my idea, especially because there are enough differences to make them individual. However, the main idea is similar, and it bugs me.

I’ve been sitting on the story for a while, mainly because I wasn’t too confident with it. However, after recently reading over it again, I’ve decided to start looking into submitting it for publication.

Well, lo and behold, a similar idea is out there already.

But not to worry, I’m going to do it anyway. Because I didn’t steal the idea, and they’re different enough that it won’t matter.

And you know what else? It’s a damn good story. I can’t cheat you out of that 😉
