Alan Martin has posted on Facebook an open call for submissions in hopes of finding a new artist for his next Tank Girl project. Cue storm of Tumblr and DeviantArt links. He writes:
This is a call out to ARTISTS. In the coming months there will be an opportunity for someone to work on a new Tank Girl project. The budget won't be huge, so I'm looking for an up-and-coming artist who is looking to break into the business, or an established artist who has always dreamed of working on Tank Girl(!). I'm looking for a comicbook artist that can deliver professionally finished, sequential, full-colour artwork and who also has a great grasp of the character. If this is you, or you know someone who fits the bill, please reply in this thread and post a sample of artwork on this page. I will be refraining from commenting on any individual submissions, as this is not a competition or a critique, so please don't be offended at the lack of feedback. Many thanks in advance, and I look forward to seeing what's out there! Alan XXX
Martin has had remarkable luck in finding collaborators over the years -- Jamie Hewlett, Glynn Dillon, Ashley Wood, Rufus Dayglo, Mick McMahon, Jim Mahfood ... Here's hoping the next Tank Girl artist isn't too intimidated at the prospect of filling those gigantic army-surplus boots. And how about a female cartoonist stepping up to the plate? Wouldn't that make a certain sense?
