I am a creator of a comic book that I am trying to get published but due to my full time job I can't do all the art work and I concentrate on more pin up work for my character Tex-Shield. I am trying to find an innovative artist that won't charge me an arm and a leg to get this done but if the right artist comes on board I will make sure to push this book and your name and give a % of sales once this project is off and running.
