Got a box of comics today B-) They are A5 size and 52 pages (plus 4 covers pages) and contain a bunch of comics about animals. There is also a photo of my dog flying in there too (spoilers).
They will be available next week at London MCM (I’m at table CA10) and then online after that.
My friend J.N. Monk has a heck of an idea.ed: links fixed
StarHammer follows the exploits of a straight-laced teenage girl who finds herself in the possession of a powerful object that once belonged to a disgraced superhero. After being badgered into taking up the mantle of the former hero by practically everyone she knows, she finds herself under their tutelage, which they begin to view as their ticket to a redemptive comeback.Left: ‘disgraced superhero’ Danae. Right: Evey, new owner of Orion’s Mallet. (illustration by katiasketches@tumblr)
StarHammer is a diverse and inclusive family-friendly tale of aliens, superpowers, a society still learning to deal with superpowers, and forgiveness. The creator is looking for an artist with a fun, contemporary, and colorful style to produce final character designs for the series, as well as five full color comic pages for the project’s planned IndieGoGo campaign in early 2015. This is a for-pay assignment.
J.N. is looking to pay $80 USD each for comic pages. Character design work rates are negotiable; please contact him if you are interested. J.N. would love to have the same artist produce both the final designs and the comic pages, but if you are only up for doing one or the other, please contact him anyway, as this may be entirely doable. Even more ideal is if you are potentially interested in a long-term, for-pay assignment, dependent upon the success of the IndieGoGo campaign.

Why am I asking you?
Because J.N. has been asking around all over the internet for a couple of months, now. You see a lot of complaints about how difficult it is to find paying gigs online. You see a lot of complaints about the dearth of content from creators of diverse backgrounds, and a lot of complaints about the dearth of inclusive projects that potentially appeal to everybody. StarHammer is all of these things. It is so much all of those things that I had to assume the reason J.N.’s had such difficulty finding an artist is because you haven’t heard of it, yet.
Well, you’ve heard of it, now. If you want to show gatekeeping publishers a thing or two and get paid while you do it, contact J.N. Monk at email@example.com !
