  • [Wanted ($)] COLORIST: Silver Cord, book 2

    Silver Cord is a two-book spiritual science-fiction story. Book one was drawn and colored by artists hired through comic book forums. Book two is now funded via Kickstarter by fans of the first book. The colorists of book one were unavailable to rejoin us for the second book, so we are searching for a young colorist anywhere in the world willing to work hard, fast, reliably, and in the style of our colorists from book one. Your portfolio should demonstrate you can work in a style that matches the first book. You will be working from penciled / inked Photoshop files. You must be capable of exchanging large digital files easily. In addition to artistic capability and communication skills, the artist needs to demonstrate that he/she is (and has been) reliable in working with intense, long-term deadlines. We expect book two to be about the same length as book one, approximately 200 pages. Payment is per page. This is a serious solicitation; visit our press page for coverage of book one and our Kickstarter campaign.
