Since coming back to comics as an adult, I've encountered all kinds of talented cartoonists online and in person who have to work in some other job, or don't get paid enough for the level of talent they bring to their work.
I want to change that.
This site is different from services like Fiverr or 99Designs. I see those sites as a race to the bottom -- getting talent cheap. But entrepreneurs in The Strategic Coach Program know about the value of appreciating and rewarding Unique Ability.
If you're an entrepreneur, I want you to get your book made, and if you're an artist, I want to help you make a good living by working on these books.
Hopefully everyone will be so satisfied with the outcome that you'll want to do it all again, or do other projects together -- like create cartoons for marketing materials, internal communication, and social media campaigns (our team tells me that our cartoons dramatically outperform every other kind of post!).
So what's the catch? No catch, honest! I just want to see Strategic Coach's clients realize their book dreams, and give other artists a chance to get paid well for doing what they love and are great at.
Why? Well, first I need to prove that this can work. And second, I want to see what this will lead to.
I've been inspired by seeing Dan Sullivan form creative collaborations with likeminded people that have led to some really incredible outcomes -- things that would never have happened if he'd gone into the relationship wondering where the money is.
This can be one of those collaborations! I don't have the time or talents to manage these book projects or the artist-entrepreneur relationships -- that's up to you! -- but I do see a huge need and an opportunity in helping to make these connections.
So let's make that happen!
P.S. What's with all the bunnies?
When I made the IlloWork logo, I kept seeing the two Ls as bunny-ears -- so I ran with that!
