Finalist of the 2012 Comic Book Grant from Carnet Jove
Big announcement today, as my comic strip Dispersion has been selected as a finalist of the 2012 Comic Book Grant from Carnet Jove. If you don’t know what is this, let me explain you that is a grant organized by the Government of Catalonia, through the Agència Catalana de la Joventut, to promote young comic book artists. Miguel Bustos Martínez is the winner of the initial phase and his comic strips will be publish in El Jueves and Mediacampus magazines.
As him and the other finalists –hooray for all of you, guys,– in the next phase I’ll get the chance to pitch a graphic novel project to Editores de Tebeos. Once their get the winner, those guys will publish the comic book in a 2,000 copies print, and an advance of 3,000 euros as royalties.
I’m really excited and thankful for this opportunity. I’m looking forward to work a lot this coming months to get the chance to pitch a nice project. In the meanwhile, I’ll let you take a look to this comic strips. Believe me, they are funny, but only available in Spanish, so you should trust me on this.
