I've just finished my first paid gig doing comic art, yes, that's right, paid comic art, sounds unusual, I know, but it's true! Not to do the other comic stuff I'm doing a disservice you understand, I'm doing that for the love of it! But cold, hard currency certainly helps to pay the bills and keep you motivated... it's the icing on the cake when you're having fun anyway!
The strip is a nice little 5 page story to help a firm of accountants showcase some of the services they offer their clients. I got the business via a friend on the 2000AD forum, the job it's self is through a cool design agency called eatsleepthink.
I think the thing I enjoyed most was designing the villains, essentially they were to be Superpowered-Tax-Collectors - YIKES! One was to be a calculator, one was a standard supervillian (with a pulled-down bowler hat) and the last was a "big boss" style bowler hat with legs.
It's pretty appropriate given the start of the new tax year this week! Hopefully, it's also the beginning of a trend!
