My friend J.N. Monk has a heck of an idea.

StarHammer is a diverse and inclusive family-friendly tale of aliens, superpowers, a society still learning to deal with superpowers, and forgiveness. The creator is looking for an artist with a fun, contemporary, and colorful style to produce final character designs for the series, as well as five full color comic pages for the project’s planned IndieGoGo campaign in early 2015. This is a for-pay assignment.
J.N. is looking to pay $80 USD each for comic pages. Character design work rates are negotiable; please contact him if you are interested. J.N. would love to have the same artist produce both the final designs and the comic pages, but if you are only up for doing one or the other, please contact him anyway, as this may be entirely doable. Even more ideal is if you are potentially interested in a long-term, for-pay assignment, dependent upon the success of the IndieGoGo campaign.

Why am I asking you?
Because J.N. has been asking around all over the internet for a couple of months, now. You see a lot of complaints about how difficult it is to find paying gigs online. You see a lot of complaints about the dearth of content from creators of diverse backgrounds, and a lot of complaints about the dearth of inclusive projects that potentially appeal to everybody. StarHammer is all of these things. It is so much all of those things that I had to assume the reason J.N.’s had such difficulty finding an artist is because you haven’t heard of it, yet.
Well, you’ve heard of it, now. If you want to show gatekeeping publishers a thing or two and get paid while you do it, contact J.N. Monk at email@example.com !
