What is this comic about?
It's a five-page story about the pains and insecurities of growing up. In many ways, it's a story about toxic masculinity. It takes place during a little league baseball game and focuses on a eleven year old boy named Wussey. Who/what am I looking for?
An artist/collaborator who can pencil and ink. I see this comic in black and white with maybe touches of bold color, if any. Someone who can draw children and can draw TDKR/Sin City-esque cartoonishly big and bad men. The script currently includes some experimental elements to it so someone will have fun with this comic. Also, a collaborator who is willing to make it as much theirs as mine. I'm not the kind of writer who believes his script is absolute. Who am I?
My name is Andrew Leamon. I most recently wrote the 10-pg mini-poem comic "Hope Valley", drawn by Steven Rosia (soon to be available on digital platforms). I like to call myself a storyteller and storyseller, having previously worked as a copywriter. You can find samples of my professional work at andrewleamon.com
. I plan on including pieces from my comic "Hope Valley" soon. You can find me on twitter: aleams How can I be contacted?
If you think you would be a great fit, please contact me by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Send me your portfolio and any relevant pages or drawings. If you have any other questions I haven't covered, let me know. NOTE
: As I am recently unemployed, we will have to work out a deal for compensation (which I promise to be fair). I hope to get this published into an anthology, Kickstart, or (worst-case scenario) digitally publish it. I will do everything in my power to make sure that you make as much money on this as possible. I don't believe in making artists unfairly work for no compensation. I'd much rather take no money from it so you make money and I have in the past.
EDIT: I just moved this to Projects folder as I didn't realize this folder existed and accidentally posted in wrong folder. Apologies!
