Just a quick note… I put an ad on oDesk (a contractor website) for artists to do my Chemistry / Mythology project and got two dozen replies since last night. There’s a lot of variability in the work, but at least several of them have fantastic portfolios and one or two look like excellent matches.
I’d still rather have a collaborator than a contractor, but perhaps I’m going about it wrong.
What’s more important? Getting the work out soon or finding a good collaborator?
