Anonymous asked: How do you choose your collaborators or writers?
It’s pretty simple.
1. It has to be a story I’m interested in drawing,
2. It has to be something I would never write myself.
3. I have to have time to draw it. (sometimes I’m busy doing other stuff)
Mainly I have to believe in the story. Comics take a long time to draw…..a long time! So when I draw someone else’s story I’m giving up time I could be working on my own projects, other illustration work, school work, socializing or my part time job. I’m a busy lady!
A good solid story is the key. I also like when people give me room to add my flavor to the story. I’ve been lucky with all my writers because they see me as a collaborator and not just someone who is drawing their story. So they want me to be myself which is nice. But they also really push me to try draw new things. It’s also nice to have another opinion or when struggling someone is there to help you out. A good collaboration should be both parties trying to get the best work out of each other.
I don’t accept every script that comes my way, because I just don’t have enough time! I only have so many pages in me….plus I like to sleep. If I’m not drawing…generally I’m sleeping.
But hell, what do I know! This works for me…but everyone is different.
