I am a previously syndicated comic strip writer who is looking for an artist to collaborate on my latest feature. The work involved is five character designs and eight weeks of strips (six daily strips and one Sunday strip per week) and I'm willing to negotiate on rate.
The style of artwork I am looking for would be similar to Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes. I'm not interested in replicating Watterson's style, of course, but I am seeking that rich, expressive and dynamic, yet economical, visual feel. My writing relies heavily upon having an expansive library of character expressions, both extreme and subtle, so the visual style would need to provide that capability.
I have been friends with the president of Universal syndicate for over ten years, so our work will be carefully reviewed for syndication. If our project is picked up for syndication, we would continue working together as equal co-owners of the feature and splitting all earnings moving forward.
Please contact me if you would like to learn more about the project.
