Hi, I'm looking for a comic book artist for a 6-page steampunk story for the anthology STEAMPUNK ORIGINALS vol. 8.  You can find out more about it on its facebook group -- www.facebook.com/groups/Steamp…

About me:  I'm the writer and creator of the anthology webcomic BOOK OF LIES.  I have a story in Steampunk Originals vol. 7 and looking to get one into vol. 8 as well.  It's a 6-page story about an accountant who takes his family on an adventure holiday.  If you want to check out some of my stories from my webcomic here are a few links:

PET CROC pg 1
BASILISK IN THE HOUSE pg 1
IMAGINARY STRING pg 1

Now the anthology itself doesn't pay (except contributor copies).  I'm willing to chip in $10/page for the project. 

DEADLINE: NOV 20.  The art needs to be in by then so it can be lettered before the deadline of the anthology.  It's possible a small extension can be had, but basically it is one month to do six color pages.

If there are artists who are interested in doing shorts just for my website, I do have a couple stories free including:

WICKED FAIRIES -- a funny sequel to Cinderella where Cindy gets fairy godmother's for her wicked step-sisters only to have all their wishes go horribly wrong...

AFTER -- a Christian woman tries to convince a voodoo priest to raise her baby.

MEDUSA -- the real tale behind the myth of an Island queen and her doomed love affair with a stranded sailor.

PACK -- a sequel to Little Red Riding Hood where the wolves of the forest, feeling their brother was unjustly killed, descend on the Little Red's village to get their revenge.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

For anyone interested, there is a steampunk anthology published by Arcana.  You can find out more about it here --> www.facebook.com/groups/Steamp…

I've gotten a couple stories approved and am looking for an artist to team up with.  The anthology itself only pays in printed copies, but I also run my own anthology webcomic, THE BOOK OF LIES, so I'll pay $10/page for the art for my webcomic.  So not a lot of money, but two hits for one story. 

You can check out my website and some of the finished stories here:

RISING -- bookofliescomic.webcomic.ws/co…
Basilisk in the House -- bookofliescomic.webcomic.ws/co…
THE MOST EVIL PAINTING IN THE WORLD -- bookofliescomic.webcomic.ws/co…

The stories I have for the anthology so far are:

ANCIENT BEASTS -- about a farmboy who turns his farm equipment into a mechanical cyclops.

Beneath the City -- about two men in a submarine hunting a giant crocodile through the sewers of New York.

I'm working on additional stories as well, so if there are things you are interested in let me know and I'll see what I can do.  For artists interested in doing shorts/webcomic/$10-a-page but don't care about the print anthology I have additional stories that are free for the webcomic only -- just let me know and I'll be happy to send you a list and we can go from there.

Thanks,
--Paul
Hi, I'm the writer and creator of the anthology webcomic BOOK OF LIES.  I'm looking for comic book artists for short comics (6-8 pages).  The pay is only $10/page -- not much, just pizza and beer money, but I can be flexible on deadlines.  These are supposed to be fun!  Since these are comics, I'm looking for people with COMIC BOOK PAGES in their portfolio.  The comic is mainly a horror comic, but I am trying to work in more humor.  If you want to check out some of my stories here are a few:

PET CROC-- bookofliescomic.webcomic.ws/co…
BASILISK IN THE HOUSE -- bookofliescomic.webcomic.ws/co…
IMAGINARY STRING -- bookofliescomic.webcomic.ws/co…

Here are some of the stories available.  If you don't see something that connects, feel free to tell me what you are looking for.  I am always working on more stories.

WICKED FAIRIES -- a funny sequel to Cinderella where Cindy gets fairy godmother's for her wicked step-sisters only to have all their wishes go horribly wrong...

BABYSITTER AND THE HAUNTED HOUSE -- after getting fired, the only place a young girl can get a job is babysitting for a couple who live in a haunted house.

ELLA INVENTOR in "JESSIE'S BARN" -- a steampunk story about a genius girl inventor who sets out to make some extra money by cleaning an old woman's barn.  Things do not go as planned!

GET THAT CAT -- a divorced father plans a trip to reconnect with his daughter, but the family cat runs out the door and now the father has 1 hour to catch the cat or all his plans will be ruined.

Also some darker stories for people who like horror...

PACK -- a sequel to Little Red Riding Hood where the wolves of the forest, feeling their brother was unjustly killed, descend on the Little Red's village to get their revenge.

AFTER -- in a world where voodoo is the dominant religion, a Christian woman tries to convince a voodoo priest to raise her dead baby.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Here are some of the stories available.  As you can see they range from humor to horror, so hopefully something for everyone.  If you're interested but don't see a project that meets your interests (vampires, romance, Lovecraft, etc), send me a note with what you are into and I'll see what I can come up with. 

STORIES AVAILABLE: 

WICKED FAIRIES -- a funny sequel to Cinderella where Cindy gets fairy godmother's for her wicked step-sisters only to have all their wishes go horribly wrong...

PACK -- a sequel to Little Red Riding Hood where the wolves of the forest, feeling their brother was unjustly killed, descend on the Little Red's village to get their revenge.

KILLERS -- a girl cursed to be a werewolf is targeted by a couple of serial killers who don't realize she will change when the moon rises...

NANOTECH GIRL -- a lonely genius creates a girl out of nanotechnology, who ends up having more power than he could have imagined.

AFTER -- in a world where voodoo is the dominant religion, a Christian woman tries to convince a voodoo priest to raise her dead baby.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

THE GREATEST INVENTION
(a 1-page story)


PAGE 1/panel 1 -- we meet EDDO THOMASI, an old Italian man (about 70) in a two thousand dollar suit.  However, he is not a businessman and has a very eccentric style, a bit of Salvador Dali, to him.  He is surrounded by office colleagues, most younger, who are all congratulating him, both happy and a little sad.  For today is the day he retires.

Colleagues (1) -- Congratulations!  
Colleagues (2) -- I can’t believe you’re retiring!
Colleagues (3) -- You’re the world’s greatest inventor!  You can’t just stop!
EDDO -- no, not stop.  I will make one more invention...the ultimate invention for civilized man!


PAGE 1/panel 2 -- EDDO down in his lab.  It’s a mess.  He has lots of machines with tanks and tubes and rotating churners.  There are beakers and cups all around, knocked over or smashed.  He is in “creating” mode and should have a mad scientist feel.

EDDO -- No!  No!  No!  No!  No!  No!  No!  No!  No!  No!  No!  No!  No!  No!  


PAGE 1/panel 3 -- A group of people upstairs, listening at the door to the basement.  His wife, KALA, stands on the right side with a wife’s patience.  The others look shocked or upset.

Listener 1 -- What could he be working on?
Listener 2 -- “The ultimate invention for civilized man”?
Listener 3 -- Better than the personal aerolift?
Listener 2 -- Better than the Autobuild house creator?
EDDO (from downstairs): Eureka!  I’ve done it!


PAGE 1/panel 4 -- Downstairs, now clean and spotless.  People are gathered on the right side (including KALA).  In the middle, his machine -- elegant design of gears and tubes and bottles and shakers.  On the right side, EDDO holds up a martini glass (full) in salute/celebration.

Onlookers -- Is it finished?  What does it do?
EDDO -- Friends and family, I present to you the ultimate invention for civilized man...a machine to make the perfect martini!


PAGE 1/panel 5 -- (small final panel) KALA slaps her forehead comedically.  EDDO takes a sip of his perfect martini.

EDDO:  Mmmm, delicious.

THE END

Hey!  :D  I figure I'd pop over and poke you with a stick, because I saw somewhere on the forums that you're a Roger Zelazny fan and now I find that you're a writer too! I am too, both of those! Way awesome. Hello. Let's be friends  :D

So is George RR Martin- It was the Amber Chronicles that gave him the idea for Game of Thrones.  :D

Wow.  I didn't know that.  It's funny, but I've read a bunch of GRRM, but only his shorter fiction back in the 80's when he was publishing in Asimov's science fiction magazine.  I haven't read his novels yet, even though I like Game of Thrones (or did until one recent episode killed off all my favorite characters!)
