You are a great artist and I love your work. (We also have the same name). I am currently trying to break into the business of comic books but I lack an artist. Any advice on getting a good visual comic going?

Well, there are a lot of venues to find an artist online, here on DA, Digitalwebbing.com. You just have to be honest with them. If you're looking for a collaborator but can't afford to pay pro rates, be upfront about it. It may take a bit longer but you can find someone who, like you, is trying to break in and looking for an opportunity.

Thank you so much for the advice and the quick response since I'm sure your a busy man. I know it's a near impossible industry to break into so putting my absolute best first step forward is really detrimental.
