It was several years ago that my husband came to me with the idea of his own. He had an idea for a super hero comic called Ice Pick. Because of my hobby, I wished to be a part of it, but we quickly discovered that neither one of us had the drawing skill to really bring the comic to life. The comic was iced so to speak until late last year.
My husband had been growing restless and needed his own creative outlet. I suggested the comic again, but he reminded me of the lack of drawing skill between us. In an act of desperation I cast my nets into The Duck Webcomics, searching for someone to draw my husband's creation. It started out with a request for someone to redesign our original cover image (which the only page that two year period). There were a couple of responses and some good designs, but no one was willing to commit to the long haul.
It was getting near Christmas, so I asked Ryan for one last chance to reel in an artist. If one would not come, we would have to abandon the comic for another year or so. I requested the cover to be redrawn within The Duck's Secret Santa. Right after my request there was a comment, "lol for some reason I'm kinda hoping i get niccea's [that is my username] one =P it looks interesting."
The post was made by RPGgrenade. His main comic is about a bar, which was perfect considering that the hero for Ice Pick is a bartender. We reached out to him, and before the Secret Santa was even assigned, he made us a new cover for the comic and offered to draw the rest for us.
