NoHo Noir, that is. We have a new home, new stories, new characters. And we promise it will be darker and dirtier than before.
The reason for the move? Basically we were told that if we wanted to continue on Patch, we would have to provide our services for free. Katherine wrote about it here. It's well worth a read if you freelance or wonder why artist's and writers struggle to make a living.
We started NoHo Noir (NoHo = North Hollywood) just over a year ago. Katherine got the gig and invited me to illustrate the stories. Over the past year we've developed both a working relationship and a friendship.
We are carrying on because we both enjoy doing it. No, we won't get paid, but the work will be totally ours, we have no restrictions. We're hoping to bundle the stories and illustrations from Volume 1 into e-books, and to continue with Volume 2, adding extras. The website will feature not just the stories but character portraits and bio's, as well as interesting bits of Noir-related news. We really hope you will come along for the ride with us.
The first of story of Volume 2 runs this weekend. Come and follow us here :
