This seems to be the biggest challenge facing an aspiring comic book writer – locating an artist to illustrate your work who is available, and whose style suits both your tastes and writing/genre. There seems to be a few avenues I’ve located so far (Digital Webbing and PencilJack mainly) where artist and writers can hook up. But a lot of these artists ask for payment before they’ll agree to be part of the creative process. For a new creator like myself, this seems a fairly risky. Basically, I’d be paying for something that, in all likelihood, won’t be published. For me, at the place I am in my writing career, is simply too much give for not enough return.
What, or who, I’d like to meet would be an aspiring artist for was willing to have a look at my material and see what they can make out of it. This way, we both get the practice we need to hopefully go to be published. But the difficulties in finding that one person would be similar to the proverbial needle in a haystack. I’m sure they are out there, it’s just a matter of finding them.
