I see lots of new artists coming up and I think we are entering a new era of comics in terms of style and presentation.
The thing I don't see is a lot of writers getting burn.
It's tough in a visual medium when you are the word and concept guy.
Maybe I am a glutton for punishment but I am officially starting a contest to get you idea men some shine.
Here's how it works:
You come up with a short comic story. 1-10 pages.
Email it to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org or note it to me.
I'll pick one story one month from today....and draw it.
You own the story.
Make an ashcan
Use is as a sample to get a gig.
Sell it as a download
I don't care. It's your story.
I have paper in front of me...pencil in hand..
Let's do this.
Hi all you Writer/ Creative types out there.
There seems to be a really great reaction to this contest. More so than I expected. I'm glad to see there is a lot of energy around this.
A couple updates:
Go ahead and send me a one paragraph pitch for the story. It will make it easier for me to read all of them and if I pick yours you can send me the full story and we can go from there. I prefer self contained stories that start and end in the 1-10 pages.
Please make sure it's a short story. (1-10 pages)
The final date for submitting a story is Feb 29th.
Good luck and I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
