PACT – Professional Artist-Client Toolkit will be a tool to help freelance fantasy, sci-fi, and comic book illustrators negotiate a better living wage for themselves. This Toolkit is the brain child of artists Jim Pavelec, Todd Lockwood, Randy Gallegos, Mike Sass and Aaron Miller. The PACT web tool kit is not a portfolio site, but will be geared towards improving the standards for artists within the fantasy, science fiction, book publishing and comic book industries. They describe this project as “a place where we can learn to be more professional, to promote an appreciation and more respectful attitude toward the work we do, and encourage companies to treat us in a more professional and economically viable way”. If the project is funded it will cost $29 a year but if you back the project they will give you a Two Year Membership for that same price.
