It's that time of year again and with the success of our first year (still in progress to Feb 2014) we proudly open the doors for the next round of creators that are willing to stake their claim and grow their audience through a consistent online endeavor. We only ask, as always:
"Would you be interested in doing any of your concepts/characters as a 13 x4 inch weekly strip, for a year to build something for yourself online with other like minded individuals?"
The structure is pretty simple:
Think you can do a weekly 13 x 4 inch strip, do it for at least a year, and make it 'all ages' friendly? If not, don't try. If any one of the spec conditions can't be met or you don't think you'd want to do any of them, you can't do this. The first lesson to be learned here is to be honest with yourself.
This is how we started last year and we'll be doing it this way until 2016. What we're hoping to do is foster an environment of competitive friendships while helping creators to grow their audience through a 'power in numbers' dynamic. Please know this project isn't for everyone. But the good thing is that you'll get to find that out in the try out phase. We're not saying you can't do this alone, the question we pose is: 'why would you want to?'
If your curiosity is piqued send me a personal email and I'll send you the complete specs. I look forward to what the next year brings and which creators will tackle the challenge.
