See, I'm not dead!

Yeah, I really need to sort my shit out and start being a bit more active hearabouts again. I'm not gonna make any promises this time tho - every time I do I end up being absent for even longer, so we'll just see how things go. In the meantime, I've uploaded a bunch of stuff that I've done over the past year or so but not shown. Still got a few more things to post, but I need to make sure they're okay to show. I'm also waiting for a new project to kick off. Should be going any day now, and this is something a bit different. I'm sure I'll be able to show show of it soon enough tho.

Hello and Aloha,

We have a first issue in development and need a good colorist. We will be debuting our book at the New York ComicCon in October. THIS IS A PAID GIG, and that will be negotiated with you if you come on board.

The concept, entitled TIP OF THE SPEAR, is basically a merging of the concepts of Dr. Strange and James Bond 007, and it has the promise of becoming something recurring and popular. We found our artist on Digital Webbing, and his art is very strong. Pencils, inks and lettering are near completion.

Please be prepared to do a sample page of sequentials in color for us so that we can test your compatability with the art style. Contact me at my e-mail address,, and tell me your interest in the project, your page rate range, and sample links to your work, and we will send you samples of what the book looks like so far. It is important that you have a clear understanding of color theory and how to color a story sequentially. Mahalo (thanks) for reading. Good luck!

Hi Derek! My name is Jessica, thought I'd add you (just finished up the lettering on Post-America which I understand you worked on as well). Always good for comic artist to network.  Post-America: issue 1# page 1 by JessHavok

Sorry it's taken me such a ridiculously long time to reply to you - I haven't been spending much time on dA, and haven't checked my comments at all in ages. Good to hear from you tho. It's always nice to get to touch base with others on the same projects. Rarely get the chance, working freelance. Thanks for the note, and all the best!

No problem, I understand how it is, only I don't go on my other sites that way, this is the one I frequent the most. -Anywho you do great work, once again. :)
