In 2017 I was asked to work on a 90 page graphic novel. The Switch: Electricia written by Keith Champagne and artwork by Tom Nguyen. Keith and Tom both are comic book veterans and have worked for Marvel, DC and many other big name clients in their careers.
The Switch: Electricia started out on Kickstarter and was successfully funded! For those not familiar, Kickstarter is a crowdfunding site where backers can donate to make creator owned projects a reality. As soon as different levels meet their funding, higher levels unlock and act as an incentive to encourage more crowdfunding. The excitement from being funded wasn’t the end for Electricia, shortly after, Dynamite soon picked it up and published it!
What was my role with this book? Keith and Tom needed back up! They were both working on a number of other projects all the while working to complete this one. The back up they needed was a colorist! Tom was going to be the main artist for the whole book including colors (he did the first ten pages and the original blue cover), but a 90 page book isn’t a small endeavor! I came in to help meet the deadline so publishing could go on as planned!
I learned a lot from working with Keith and Tom on this project. They are great to work with and we’ll see if there’s a sequel in the works!
