While March loomed with preparations and anxieties of AwesomeCon, there was another project lurking just off panel…my Creators for Creators submission.
Creators for Creators is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization intended to encourage, support, and promote original works through grants and education.
The goal of the Creators for Creators grant is to support original comics work from new creators.
My submission, Siblings [working title], is an unsupervised children’s romp through space to reunite four siblings with their parents. The all-ages space adventure follows the Clemente family providing outreach on the planet Nyota. After their home is destroyed, the brothers and sisters are forced into a quest encountering all sorts of creatures and insurmountable situations. However, their love of, and dependence upon, each other helps them bring their family back together. In the end, the Clementes realize that home is not a fixed place in the galaxy, but that place where you can be with the ones you love.
Below are the first 5 pages of the story. I hope you enjoy. The story will continue:
