What would be you definition of someone that has broken into the comic industry?

What do you think qualifies someone as a professional comic artist?

AND -- what are your goals... have you achieved any goals recently?
This just in...Nick Jones (John Stewart in upcoming Green Lantern movie) will be signing autographs at Heroes Fallen Studios table at Heroes Con on Saturday June 4, 2011 between 12pm - 4pm...for 1 HOUR ONLY, be sure to stop by the table to get the exact time that Nick will be there.
With the 2011 Heroes Comic Con (www.heroesonline.com/heroescon… only about two weeks away, The Inkwell Awards (inkwellawards.com) have more details to share about their final 2011 Inkwell tour stop and the scheduled ceremony to take place that weekend of June 3-5.  "While this is our fourth annual awards culmination, it's our first live ceremony, so we want to make it special", shared Bob Almond, the non-profit organization's founder and director.  "Much of our inking advocacy will be at the show and for the ceremony, which will take place Saturday afternoon at the Charlotte Convention Center at a room and time slot to be announced.  We have some notable creators who are graciously involved with the proceedings like artist Dan Panosian who will act as Keynote Speaker.  Artist and former Inkwell committee member Tim Townsend will act as our Presenter. Tim will announce the results from the online April public ballot.  There was a phenomenal response this year at the ballot box and there are some real surprises from our tally of winners.  I'll be hosting the ceremony.   Acting as hostess will be our spokeswoman, Ms. Inkwell, who will be portrayed at this venue by model Kathy Taylor.  We'd hoped to have Joe Sinnott attend the event as our Guest of Honor, but that wasn't ultimately possible. We hope Joe can attend in this capacity in 2012."

"To close out the Ceremony, there will be a small Live Auction for some key pieces of original art donated in support of the Awards" Bob continued.  "Acting as Auctioneer will be artist and Inkwell Ambassador Ethan Van Sciver.  The items to be auctioned will include the signed cover art for the 2010 Wizardworld: New England Con Exclusive Donation Drive book of the character Ms. Inkwell.  This was drawn and inked by artist Craig Rousseau and will include his preliminary art and a multiple-autographed copy of the book.  Another item will be a Kirbyesque image of DC's Kobra rendered, signed and donated by Michael Netzer (which was published in the Jack Kirby Collector magazine).  Michael also donated an unpublished tribute piece to legendary artist Gene Colan."  Michael Netzer commented in an email to Bob  "I figure it's a good time to be thinking about Gene these days as he's back in the hospital. Maybe a good additional reason that it appears in your auction and goes to a cause I'm sure both Gene and Clifford (Meth) are happy to support."  Bob chimed in "Clifford Meth subsequently said that he was very happy about us auctioning off the piece so we feel truly honored to have received it".

After the ceremony the new 2011 Inkwell Awards Donation Drive book will be available for a $15 donation.  Produced by founding committee member Jim Tournas, it showcases the awesome artistic donations from the artist community since the last collection.   And it has an introduction by writer and founding committee member Danny Best.  "It's a nice annual album consisting of great artwork that you'd never see unless you were bidding on these one-of-a-kind gems online" observed Bob.  "This edition's color cover art will be rendered by artist and Inkwell contributor Louis Small, Jr.   The Ms. Inkwell character rendered by Louis is inspired by model Hanna Pawlowska who acted as the spokeswoman and was well-received at the previous 2010 Heroes show."

Bob commented in closing "Speaking on behalf of the entire team, we are exceptionally thrilled and honored that promoter Shelton Drum invited us to be part of his amazing show in Charlotte.  It lifted my spirits after a rough year and he and his staff have been extremely helpful and generous in assisting us every step of the way.  Shelton's Heroes show is famous for its extraordinary support of comics artists. Heroes continues this tradition by giving time and recognition to the true underdogs of comics: the ink artists!"

Hi there!  I'm a dA member looking to break into the comics industry, but I need the help of a fine artist to get me there.  I have a finished script that I want to submit to publishers, but most publishers will only take submissions in the form of finished pages.  Since my best art looks like a drunken 5-year-old's, this is quite the problem.

Like I said, I have an entire, 24-page script ready.  What I am looking for is someone who can help bring it to life, whether it's the whole or a piece.  I do not have a preference for one style over another--what matters most is if you want to try your hand at this.

fav.me/d8g9xlc

This is the script.  It tells the story of a young man named Michael Meng who is a superhero named Phantasmic in his spare time before and after school.  Phantasmic lives in a world full of superheroes and supervillains, so many that it's very likely that the person next to you on the bus or the lady at the cash register at McDonald's could have superpowers.  It's a satire of the over-saturated genre, and just what life is like for someone that doesn't have the universe revolve around them.

Here are the details:

Bullet; Black This is NOT A PAID JOB.  I cannot offer you money or points for this.

Bullet; Black However many pages you can/want to complete is up to you.  The standard is at least five pages (plus cover mock-up), inked and lettered.  If you want to stop at five, that is perfectly fine.  If you want to do twenty-four, that is perfectly fine.

Bullet; Black This does not have to be a one-person job!  If you are skilled at inking but not lettering, or vice-versa, we can make this a team effort.  The more the merrier, and all that.

Bullet; Black There is no deadline for this, but I am looking for someone who can be timely with their work.  When this becomes a published book, it will need to meet a schedule, and I need to know that whoever works on this is punctual.

If you know anyone that would be interested in this, please link them to this thread!  Spread the word, alert the media!  Let's do this!

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope I have your curiosity and attention.  If you have any questions, please leave them below or send me a Note!

Illustrator wanted for graphic novel collaboration

Hi all, I’m looking for an illustrator to work with me on a graphic novel with a historical /fantasy/ western theme. It’s a story I’ve thoroughly enjoyed writing and I really think that people will want to read it.

What I’m looking for is someone to initially illustrate the first 10 pages, so that it can be pitched to relevant publishers - and to continue working on it once it's accepted. Visually, I’m looking for someone with a bold style who can capture and combine both the natural look of the American mid west and the story’s fantasy elements.

While this will be my first graphic novel, I have published in my regular line of work.

If anyone is interested, please email mark.kennedy.gn (at) gmail.com

Thanks in advance!
