I love working with clients. It's true! An editor and client can help to shape a comic into something great, and when the collaboration works, it's the best success. I've worked with many clients and editors over the years, and it occurred to me recently that there are very few guidelines to this process. So I put a few things down in my sketchbook that have worked for me over the years, in the hopes that it will help clients and artists work together on commissioned comics for publication.
ADDENDUM: I am not taking commissions of any kind at present, due to being on maternity leave. But I appreciate the offer of work, and hope we can work together in the future!
