Looking for Some Colorists

I am looking for the colorists who worked on the HEDGE KNIGHT and SWORN SWORD graphic novels.

My understanding is that "Team Kandora" from "Transparency Digital" did the colors for the HEDGE KNIGHT, for the Dabel Brothers/ DB Pro, and that Rob Ruffolo did the colors for the SWORN SWORD, again for the Dabels.

Googling the names turns up references to all of the above, but no contact info.

So if any of you out there know Rob Ruffolo or anyone from Team Kandora, tell them to get in touch with me privately via email, or LJ messaging.

Curious, is this for some work you are doing? Looking forward to some more Graphic Novel versions of your stories!

Re: Incoming?
We do have a MYSTERY KNIGHT graphic novel in the works.

Also a STARPORT graphic novel, based on a pilot I wrote for Fox in 1993, and a WINDHAVEN graphic novel, scripted by Lisa Tuttle, and three all original WILD CARDS graphic novels.

But no, this does not concern any of those. This is in connection with old stuff.

Robert Ruffolo has a homepage at: https://robertruffolo.carbonmade.com

There are some HEDGE KNIGHT pages in the portfolio there, so I'm guessing he's your guy.

He's also @rruffs on Twitter, apparently.

Mr. Martin: I know a terrific colorist who is highly skilled and worked in the comic industry that could be of service. How could I have her get in contact with you?

Re: Colorist
Thanks, but no, I am looking for these specific people.

I think it's this guy: https://robertruffalo.carbonmade.com I see the hedge knight in his comic colouring section. His email is on the contact page (Robert.ruffolo@gmail.com)

Hello Mr. Martin,

I've found Rob Ruffolo's artist page. Hope this helps.


(Btw: I just registered to help you with this so I don't know if Livejournal will let me post a link. But if you google "rob ruffolo concept artist", his site should be on the first page.)

As for Team Kandora, here's what I compiled.

According to an old interview I've found, they took the step from coloring studio to publisher in 2004 or 2005. But Kandora Publishing was only in business for about a year and then vanished.

Luckily, I discovered the Linkedin page from one of Kandora's former writers, C. Edward Sellner who also has a blog: http://cedwardsellner.blogspot.de/

If you scroll down on his blog, you can see links to his Facebook, Twitter, G+ etc. profiles on the right. Maybe he knows who was in charge back then and can give you their contact infos.

PS: I hope my English was good enough to convey what I was trying to say.

Is this the guy? Or just another Rob Ruffolo who is an artist?

Team Kandora and Transparency Digital are both pseudonyms for comic book artist and colorist Jung Choi.

This is off-topic, but I've always preferred the old CMYK style of matte colouring from comic books in the 50s rather than the slick photoshop gradient colours of modern comic books - would you ever print a book in that style, George?

Here's Jung Choi's contact info. That's Team Kandora! :)

Cover change
On a side note about artwork, how comes Amazon has changed the cover for A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms in the past few days from than the one that was shown on here a few months ago?

Any particular artistic reason between you and Gianni to make the cover silver with a red shield?

I think the new cover looks fantastic anyhow, just really hoping the UK doesn't get a dust jacket like we got for World of Ice and Fire, much prefer a glossy hardback!

A quick question mr. Martin. Moqorro sees Victarion grasped by tentacles at wrist, neck and ankle, which he interprets as his death. However, only Victarion's wrist is injured. Was the neck and ankle part a poetic inaccuracy by the priest, or is it something that we will have to keep reading to find out?

I prefer to let my text speak for itself.

Thanks for the interest in my books.
