I need more than just a female artist for my next project. I need a female collaborator.
There’s such a huge push for diversity in comics right now. People are always talking about “more female characters!” and “more females on the creative teams!” and I couldn’t agree more. But I don’t want to do one of those things, I want to do both.
The book I’m working on is the most exciting thing I’ve ever written. I’ve been developing it for some time now and it’s seen a lot of changes but from day one, the main character has been a female named Regan.
But since I’m (obviously) not a woman, the book would lack that certain insight that only a woman could bring. And that’s what I need. I don’t want to just have a female hired gun on the book, drawing everything I write down without question. I want to bounce ideas off of her, get her input, see what she thinks etc etc. To be honest, that’s really the way all writer/artist relationships should work, but I digress.
The book itself is a Sci fi, adventure, drama, comedy type thing. So don’t expect that it will be riddled with stereotypical “girl” problems and cliches.
If you’re sitting there and you think that could be something you want to get into, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org We can go over the premise of the book, compare notes and hopefully get started bringing this beauty to life.
