Artists Wanted - Supporting a Great Cause - Hero Initiative - CBLDF - Help for Heroes
Wanted Artists looking to contribute to a great campaign. You can submit a sketch card, you can be the lead inker or toner, you decide.
A bit about the project.
My name is Joe and I have embarked on an unpaved path. I want to challenge the world of comics with a new way to perceive Comics as a source of Inspiration and Paying it forward.
And so the story I've been working on for the last 30 years has finally come to fruition.
I have teamed up with a local and talented artist Mr. Daniel Gorman and together we are going to revolutionize the way you think of comics, challenging what you thought was a great plot line and critically acclaimed story.
Think Walking Dead vs Inception, now turn it upside down, and give it a really good spin…
Why am I here.
Currently we have a lead penciler (Mr. Gorman), the story concept/arc/script (myself), and potentially a letterer (professional typographer).
What we need:
Potential Core Inker on the book (can be digitally enhanced pencils or digital inks)
Potential Toner on the book (can be water color style, shadows and grey/black tones will suit this Macabre style tale well)
Any artists willing to donate small pieces parts to the cause
Anyone willing to help spread the word about the project and share resources or a positive mention
Dave Sim started the revolution when he was one of the first self published creators to gain critical acclaim. Critical acclaim is the goal here. Delivering a smart match of ideals, prophetic warnings, mystery, politics, and suspense.
We are going to work our butts off this summer promoting this book, teaming with Good causes like Hero Initiative, Help for Heroes (a new foundation started by Sean Forney), and CBLDF. Between our core team and supporters we are going to cover at least 10 major comic con shows in the U.S. We are hoping to distribute 10,000 copies of our ashcan. The goal is to get everyone involved in the project, in some way shape or form, both self satisfaction for helping a worthy campaign, some type of compensation, and all the right publicity.
I will personally go through ALL who submit and based on style and timing, decide who works best for the story.
If you are submitting or willing to submit anything as a donation, all will be appreciated and accepted.
The ashcan will hit print around March 3-5th and will be debuting at Orlando Comic Con in Mid March.
What do you get out of it?
Any donations will be properly welcomed and thanked.
If you can contribute a pin-up / variant cover / or full on inks or tones we can discuss terms. We do have a budget that can be appropriated towards this, but since the goal is not to make money, but be a game changer, I would prefer artists who would like to continue to see involvement in this project, that can offset up front commission, for publicity and continued involvement and interest in the project.
I am very open to terms and negotiation as far as that goes and welcome your thoughts as well as rates. (due to the nature of the book rates beyond $50/pg will be beyond our budget for this project)
10 shows across the US - distributing the ashcan's / post cards / promotionals / linking to social media and kickstarter campaign
I am willing to link you to any and all promotions for your involvement in the project and would love to give all credit where it is due whenever possible
Thanks for all of your attention and I hope to hear from some talented artsists soon!
