Time To Meet Fixer’s New Artist, Erin!

Some people have been asking who Fixer’s new artist is. Well, it’s time to introduce her to everyone! She took some time to do a quick interview so you fans can get to know her a little better.

1. Please introduce yourself 
Hello! I am Erin Nagy. I like elves and cheese ravioli and I cannot stand the sound of ticking clocks. I’ve worked on webcomics, print comics, and video games. Though most of my art is 2D drawings, I also dabble in some crafts and writing. If it’s creative, I’m there!
2. How did you first find out about Fixer?
A friend of mine suggested Fixer to me back when it was fairly new. My taste in print comics runs towards the superheroes, but when it comes to webcomics pretty much anything is fair game. Fixer had a unique story and great writing and art, so into my bookmarks it went!
3. What made you want to become Fixer’s next artist?
I heard there was a search for a new artist for Fixer, and that they were looking for a style that had a bit of comic book and a bit of anime in it. Since that’s how I’d describe my style, I was excited: it sounded like a perfect fit! It’s always nice to be a part of something, and it’s even nicer when you can be part of something of which you are a fan.
4. What is your artist background?
Though I went to art school, I’m mostly self-taught. I have been drawing for pretty much my whole life (I remember being very small, with an endless roll of paper and a giant box of crayons), and my parents, family, and friends have always been quite supportive of it. I started taking my art seriously in my early teens, and now I am rarely seen without pencil (or, more often, stylus) in hand.
5. Who are your favorite musicians?
I have really varied taste: Coldplay to Koji Kondo is just scratching the surface. My favourite music is the kind that evokes feelings or tells a story, so I enjoy a lot of game soundtracks and movie scores. I’ll listen to most everything, though, except boy bands. Boy bands are not allowed.
6. What are your hobbies?
I draw. A lot. I am also an avid gamer and love to read. Unfortunately, I don’t have any exciting hobbies like hang gliding (though I have been twice!).
7. Who is your favorite character in Fixer?
My favourite character is Mamoru. Most of the time he comes off as an easygoing, unflappable, cool dude, but then every once in a while that cracks and he’s the complete opposite. I’m a sucker for cool dudes, goofballs, and secret personality traits, so he’s the best of all worlds!
8. What was your favorite Fixer moment?
I really liked when Dakota decided to make a serious commitment to his music: when he changed his hair. Not only did it show character growth, but it was also this neat combination of minor event and major impact. The fact it was in one of the few colour pages was also a very striking choice.
9. How will your style effect the comic?
Danny’s art has this wonderful simple realism to it. My art is more stylized, but is still relatively realistic. I think our similarities will help bridge the entire story together, and our differences will distinguish the different arcs.
10. What are your hopes for the future?
As far as Fixer goes, I really hope everyone enjoys this next chapter in the band’s life, and that I can fill the big shoes Danny left behind!
Personally, I dream of one day creating my own comics. I have a zillion ideas floating around in my head, and I would love to capture and share some of them.
For the future in general… I hope for jetpacks.

Fixer’s Next Artist Search

Fixer is in search of our next artist! We need someone with zest and enthusiasm for wanting to make this story a huge success, both inside and outside the pages of the story! While we are looking for someone to continue the blend of modern American comics and Japanese manga art styles, we also need someone to bring something unique and new to the art and characters! Before you read any further, please ask yourself these questions:

1. Have I read all of Fixer?
2. Do I have a passion and understanding for the characters?
3. Can I produce approximately 26 pages of art a month?
4. Can I travel on occasion?
5. Am I willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to try and bring new fans into Fixer?

If you answered yes to all of these, then we may be interested!

To apply, please e-mail Roger at roger@taintedreality.net with
– Your full name
– Examples of your artwork
– Your age
– Your location
– A little bit about yourself (your art background, your interests and hobbies, etc.)
– Why you think you are perfect for Fixer

You may have some questions. Let us do our best to answer them.

Q: Is this a paying job?
A: Yes. You will receive a flat rate for this job, with half up front and the other half upon completion of your contract. There are also bonuses involved, such as all expenses paid to promotional events, opportunities to promote your personal work, and chances at extra pay for various tasks.

Q: How much is the pay?
A: We can answer that question for you if we like your initial submission!

Q: What is the workload?
A: We are looking for approximately 26 pages a month plus a full color chapter cover. Whether the pages are full color or gray-scale will be up to the artist. There will also be occasions where we will ask you to produce promotional work, especially in the weeks leading to the release of the 2nd story arc. These promotional images are usually stills and posters.

Q: How much creative freedom will I get?
A: Much. Not only will you be designing the band’s iconic costumes for the 2nd arc, but Roger hands his artists scripts that are very open to artist interpretation.

We hope to start the 2nd, long awaited arc very soon and are anxious to see if you will be the next artist! Please don’t hesitate to apply!

The (Mis)Adventures of Fixer at Otakon

Otakon 2013 has come and gone, and while it didn’t go exactly as planned, we still had a ball! Below is a photo gallery of our time at the Sakura Matsuri, where Otakon was gracious enough to let us promote the comic! Unfortunately, the day was cut short (as you can see by the video below), but Aimee Elizabeth and Hayden Jenkins carried on the good fight, cosplaying Mamoru and Dakota and handing out flyers! Kelsey Swearman also handed out flyers while cosplaying as Naomi, but there are unfortunately no images of her.

Overall, we had a ton of fun, and are very thankful to Otakon for giving us the opportunity to reach so many new fans! Special thanx to Gary To for snapping photos of Aimee and Hayden!
