Hey everyone, I hope everyone is having a great summer so far!
Last time I posted a journal it was during my Art College Finals, but now that it's over and another year gone by, I can finally chill. Well sort of ...
During the last week of school I was contacted by a woman based in Atlanta Georgia. She told me she was an author and was working on a Ebook for kids. She asked if I would be interested in illustrating her book and I was like HECK YES I WOULD! So since I have left school I have been working on this book which is based on a Traditional Korean Folktale. I have most of the pages planned out, I just need to do a few more and do some more brainstorming in terms of character designs and backgrounds.
Besides that I have been hanging out with some of my pals here at home. One of these pals of mine, like me, has been working on not one but like three stories! Each are amazing with rich detail, romance, laughs, and overall intense plots. She plans on making a comic of these stories, but came to me asking about how to comic. I was stunned since I'm so shitty at comics, but seeing how she had been writing and developing these stories got me thinking ... I have been doing this comic all wrong! If I want to make this as good as I want it to be, I have to plan this out and go about it step by step and not just "winging it" like I have been doing. That being said I am currently pausing uploads to begin WRITING the overall first 4 chapters to my Thundercats comic Recuerdame. Of course writing takes time, especially for me since I'm so bad at it. I mean I could use all the help I can get! So here is where I need to ask ...
Would anyone like to volunteer to be an EDITOR for Recuerdame?! I am I am looking for someone to be my second opinion and who could even collaborate with me in terms of plot ideas and/or character development. This individual also has to have some knowledge in writing and possibly have some written works I can refer to. This person must also be able to keep the story, plans, etc. hush hush while they are working with me. No SPOILERS! You will of course be given credit to your assistance with you name featured in the appropriate places.
I do have some people in mind, but the last thing I'd do is bother them with my lame comic. I mean these guys I know are great at what they do so yeah, I'd get really nervous at the idea of them reading my shit. I really am for making this a legit thing and want it to be great, if not decent. Once I get a good chunk of the story written out and get an editor to look it over I will then get to laying out chapter by chapter to get things finalized and uploaded for you guys. I'm crossing my fingers because I really don't want this thing to die.
Thanks for hearing me out guys!
