This book is a spiritual science-fiction story already contracted for a major American publisher. The original artist slated to do the coloring on this project is unable to do the job, so we are searching for a young artist anywhere in the world willing to work hard, fast and reliably. The deadline for completing 202 pages is July 1, 2007. Pay is US $30 per page (firm). The work would start immediately.
You will be working from “pencils” in 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. At 202 pages, this is a major full-time commitment. Dependability is a concern for us.
For complete instructions on submitting your work, to see some sample pencils, and the method we will use to select and hire a colorist, go to this website: http://www.kk.org/coloristad/index.html
This is a serious solicitation. I am one of the book’s authors. You can find out more about myself from my home page. (I am having my assistant post this solicitation.)
In addition to this book we are also contracted for a similarly-sized sequel. If the colorist works out, there’ll be a second round of work.
