     I'm just gonna go out on a limb here folks, and say that: To all my watchers new and old, To my friends all over the world, and to my Fellow D.O.G's out there,  I'm currently looking for some artists to help me finally get my projects off the ground.  Recently, both my Artist and Co-writer each had to bail from working on my series "Strange Brew", so now I  gotta take over the writing myself.  I've already written up an Ashcan issue, which I intend to Pencil and Ink myself, as well as a 32 page Background story for one of the main Characters in the series.

     What I'm looking for is rather simple, and I hope it's portrayed here as such.  I'm looking for a total of 6 Artists for this project.  1 will handle the on going series, the others will do the Single Issue (32 pages each) Background story's for the 5 main characters of the book.  Yeah, I know....I'm askin a Whole Lot from people, but hey....I'm doin the Majority of the work already.  What's the Catch you might ask??  Well, I can't pay for the work right now.  Yeah, I know, it sucks.  I am planning on submitting this and the other projects I have to various Publishers in the hopes of someone picking it up.  Then there's always the Kickstarter Method, which I'll see about.  But ultimately, I may have a publisher lined up, one I'm supposed to be doing some Ink work for anyway, but we'll see how that all Pans out in the near future.

     I've also got another idea for a Completely different Project.  This one I got hit up about by said Publisher mentioned above.  It'll be a total collaboration effort, and need to have a "cartoony" look to the pages.  Said Publisher has an "In" with a cartoon production company, and hit me up about possibly getting one or more of my projects turned into a cartoon, yet the majority of my current wouldn't want your Kids watching a Saturday morning cartoon with any of those characters.  Trust me.  Brandee Tabor[icon:WilliamG4] can attest to that.  So after thinking long and hard about it, this one would be a Miniseries, 4-6 issues long at least, just to show the producers that the Idea is Valid and Viable as a Cartoon.  I've already got people ready to lay down their money to buy each issue...several Copy's at least...And now, I've just gotta give them a product they'd want even more.

      So that's it.  I'm sure I won't get very far with this, as I know everyone wants to get paid, no matter what.  But I had to at least try, get the word out there that Someone's looking to give fellow artists a chance to do something Unique, something Special.  IF anyone actually reading this far, knows someone who MIGHT be interested, please feel free to send them my way.  Share this Journal with them.  Share the Link to the "Strange Brew" Facebook page with them.  Hell, I've got Plenty other projects aside from these that are currently on the backburner for the time being.
