I just started working on what seems to be the biggest, longest, most intricate project I have ever dared to imagine.
It will take a lot of blood, sweat, and cigarettes. Do help me if you think you can and if you want to. If so, we can negotiate the details in more well-lit settings.
The gist is this: A graphic novel based on a board game. Jumanji style, you know, but hopefully with more attention to elegance, (Ruffled up elegance works just as well. If anything, it adds a Byronic touch to it) (Also, not trying to take anything away from Jumanji) and a pervasive theme of the Romantic, the political, and a sprinkling of the abstract. The base would desirably remain the game itself, and references to masterpieces of art, literature, or philosophy will be sought to the point of intellectual masturbation.
I would like to have the literature contained in the work ALL in verse, and though I have started writing, there is no denying that I need help. My friend, the Holy radio ([link]
will probably be helping me in that respect, and I am willing to welcome others.
The artwork should ideally remain loose in terms of rigidity of style, etc, but I want to stick to traditional art for this.
All my work regarding this project is not like stuff I have been doing in the past, and will not manage to be uploaded until of of course it reaches a certain level of completion.
I have tried not to tell you too much due to the barely genuine fear of losing my ideas to some half-ass scumbag devoid of creativity.
Ergo I think that I didn't tell you too much, which is not to say that I told you too little. Please contact me privately if interested to be part of this. Holy radio and myself will look at your work presented and then decide if we want you in the team. In terms of payback, it completely depends on what you bring to the table, but it will be done on a percentage-of-profit basis when we get to that bridge, and otherwise you will be treated as a co-author or whatever. For now.
I don't expect most of you to be interested, and would like to see some sparse-yet-strong responses. Then again, if wishes were horses, I would be King of Rohan.
