Happy Free Comic Book Day 2014/Call for 6 Aspiring Superhero Comic Book Artists

Standard

fcbdHappy Free Comic Book Day!  In celebration, Cartwheel Group 3 Comics (cartwheelgroup3.com), based in El Paso, Texas, is happy to announce a search for 6 aspiring comic book pencilers/artists to work on original stand-alone online superhero comic stories (webcomics) featuring Cartwheel Group 3 Comic characters from character design to final drawn out story.

Though this is an unpaid opportunity, selected artists’ bios, pictures, and official website links will be hosted at the main site and promoted via social media (Facebook, Twitter, and tumblr) as work progresses and will stay on the site once the work is completed.

A release will need to be signed and weekly calls are required, initially, to touch base on progress.  Calls will then shift to bi-weekly or monthly as work progresses. Other communication will be via email.  The completed projects will then be archived so to serve as an online portfolio for the featured artists.

If interested, please email cartwheelgroup3@gmail.com with brief bio, link to or examples of work, and any questions.  Cartwheel Group 3 Comics is a new organization, so you would be jumping on board at the beginning stages.

Che Williams & Orion Vang No Longer with Cartwheel Group 3 Comics

Standard

Artists Che Willams and Orion Vang have both decided to pursue other opportunities.  So, neither artist will be continuing work on any Cartwheel Group 3 Comics.  We wish them luck on their future endeavors.

Williams was assigned to the story of Trinity featuring characters Reckless Abandon, Mongrel, and Soul Weaver.  Thanks to him for at least completing the character design for Reckless Abandon.  That leaves the character designs for Mongrel and Soul Weaver to be completed.

Vang was assigned to Fame & Fortune and got through some sketches of one of the supporting cast members, Juan Perez.  His sketches will at least provide a springboard for a future artist to bounce off of.

Replacement artists for these stories have not been secured at this time, but because of our one-stand-alone-story-a-month model, we are always open to new artists who may be interested in working on a Cartwheel Group 3 Comics project.  If interested, please email Cartwheel Group 3 Comics at cartwheelgroup3@gmail.com.

More on Polka Dots & Plaid…

Remember this tease?   polkadotsandplaidHere’s a little more on this concept.  It’s called Polka Dots & Plaid, which refers to the two main characters.  It draws on What Not To Wear,  the idea of being reprogrammed, black holes, and alternate lives.

STILL LOOKING FOR ARTISTS…

Standard

STILL LOOKING FOR ARTISTS to work on original characters, concepts, and stories. This is an UNPAID opportunity, but you and your work would be SHOWCASED and PROMOTED.

Selected artists would be asked to work on one stand-alone ORIGINAL story (20-22 pages). This way it would not be a long-term commitment for the artist.

The process would begin with character/concept design based on descriptions, doodles, and/or references. Then, the script would be written by the writer, the artist would draw out the story, and once completed, it would be posted at the main site.

If the artist wanted to work on something again after that, this subject could always be revisited in the future.

This would also require weekly calls to get the characters going and finalized. Once things got rolling, only monthly calls would be required until the project was completed.

If you or anyone you know may be interested, please email Cartwheel Group 3 Comics at cartwheelgroup3@gmail.com for more information.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Freddie Rodriguez
Cartwheel Group 3 Comics Creator/Editor
