Hi All - I am looking for a great artist to help making a libre web comic -specifically for outreach for my projects… I run a large university research lab that specializes in free and open source sustainability stuff - and what I am interested in is a web comic that has a maker heroine in small short stories similar to the libre web comic Pepper and Carrot - but illustrating one of the designs we developed in each issue. Perhaps more words that I would write and a few really nice images per issue.
For example, have one where the hero is building a recyclebot and making filament for 3d printing from household plastic, one where she is helping a blind person navigate with a wrist ultrasound, etc. We produce between 20-40 studies a year- and many of them would be worth illustrating so there is a lot of content. I can provide a basic idea of the story/ concept sketch and plenty of images/figures from the papers on the hardware. I am looking for someone interested in a long term relationship.
If you are interested - please send examples of your Krita art.
What would it cost per comic or per painting? and about how long would it take? In the start I would see us doing a lot of them based on our prior work - and then going forward we could aim at 1/month.
