Here are the inks for the cover of volume 2! We are delivering the last of the book files tomorrow, and if all goes according to plan we'll have them in time for the holidays. Will keep you posted!
A lot of you send me e-mails asking about how to get into comics, including people who aren't illustrators or writers. Here is a great opportunity: 2012 Internships at Oni Press! Here is a quick clip:
An intern interacts with every department of the company but will also choose a focus department they desire more knowledge about. These focuses are:
-We teach you specific details about editing sequential art including comic coverage, story development, copy editing, book mapping, and proofing.
Design & Production
-We teach you specific details to the design and production of a title including technical skills, ad design, logo design, cover & spine design, and interior book design.
Sales & Marketing
-We teach you specific details to the sales and marketing of a title including generating models, convention planning, creator signings, sales analysis, and developing marketing plans.
This is a chance to get some real, substantial knowledge on the inner workings of a comics publisher, and a great opportunity to learn the ins and outs of the publishing side of comics. Here's a Tumblr post for you guys to reblog if you think your friends might be interested. I can tell you from personal experience that these guys are really nice and totally ready to put your enthusiasm to good use.
See you Thursday!
