Looking for Letterer to Help Re-Letter My Printed Graphic Novel
ATBL at 6:52PM, June 1, 2012
So here's the deal. I am going to be printing the first six
chapters of my comic, And To Be Loved, as a black and white comic through a
print on demand printer which I will sell through my site and at conventions. I
am not happy with my poor hand lettering that was done in these chapters. I'd
like to go back and digitally reletter the first six chapters (about 110
pages). I do not have the time to do this as I am working on a multitude of comics at the moment.
What will happen is I will send you the pages for you to
reletter and you will send them back to me as a PSD file (in case there are any
last minute tweaks that need to be made). The process will be pretty easy,
really. The existing balloons are already on the page and all you have to do is
insert new word balloons on top of them. You do not have to reletter sound
effects, or oddly lettered dialogue. I will have already inserted the new
gutters and borders onto the page. Below is an example of a before and after
page of what I am looking to do.
What can I offer in exchange for your priceless services?
Unfortunately I cannot offer pay. As a freelance illustrator, I know how
frustrating this can be and I am sorry. What I CAN offer is a full page black
and white advertisement to be printed in the book of whatever you want (your
services, website, comic, blog, picture of your dog, anything). I will also
give you one month of free banner ad space on my site, after the site has been
redesigned (the redesign should be complete in a couple of months). You will
also be credited in the book and on the website as a letterer and your webpage
will be added to our links section. I can also give you two 11“x17” pages
of original art from the comic itself (assuming this interests you…).
If you are interested, please take a look at the comic and
send me a private message after which I can give you more details. You can view
the start of the comic here: http://www.andtobeloved.com/archive/chapter-one-page-1-2/
