Celerity has lost its artist.
Levi hasn’t been able to devote the time to it he wanted to. I don’t blame him – we’re both pretty busy with work and personal lives, and it’s hard to motivate yourself to rearrange your life for someone else’s project. He’s been a great resource, though, and helped me finalize a lot of the desired visual style of Celerity and her enemies.
Unfortunately, that leaves me back almost where I started. I finished the script, so that’s a good thing, for sure, but I still don’t have an artist.
The way I figure it, I have a couple of different possibilities.
- Give up. This isn’t really on the table, but it is an option.
- Find a new artist. This would take a long time, at best. My friends tend to be technical and/or language oriented people, for the most part. The visual artists that I know are largely photographers. Once you get to people who draw and/or paint, most of them are very busy, uninterested in comics, or both.
- Use this as an opportunity to practice my character drawing and do the art myself.
Of the options, I think I like 3 the best. I want to get back to drawing again, and this would be a great motivator. I also have a couple of other ideas that I could use. So, hopefully I will start inflicting some drawings on my friends and readers in the near future.
Probably not until the floor is done, though.
