|I am looking for a new colorist.

EDIT: I went and hired Nedroid!|Here's the post from Dr. McNinja.
As some of you already know, besides coloring Dr. McNinja, the lovely and talented Carly Monardo is the character and prop color key on the (best cartoon currently on TV) Venture Bros.
But it is with sadness that I tell you that the show is too demanding of her time for her to continue work as colorist on Dr. McNinja. It was either Doc or sleep that had to go. I think Carly chose wisely.
I'm really unhappy to see Carly go. She's immensely talented, and is fun and easy to work with. Thankfully I'll still see her every day, because we're getting married. Still, professionally, very sad. Carly will have her own goodbye to post to all of you once she's officially off the comic, but right now, we need to secure ourselves a new colorist.
OPEN CALL FOR COMIC COLORIST
The Adventures of Dr. McNinja is hiring a colorist for sequential pages. We obviously need somebody who knows what colors look pretty together, and how to arrange them, but of equal importance is the ability to work on a tight deadline. You must be able to color 3 comic pages a week, without fail or tardiness.
The contract will be for a single 25-45 page Dr. McNinja issue, and after that if it looks like you work well with us, and like the job, the contract will be renewed for future work.
The pages are published at drmcninja.com (go ahead and check there to see what sort of work this is), and later on they are collected and printed in trade paperbacks.
The pay is a flat $75 a page. Your work will be shown to an audience of over 100,000 people a day (and that's a conservative number), and we'll happily link to your website if you wish. The Adventures of Dr. McNinja has been favorably reviewed in such publications as The New York Post, The Washington Post, PC Magazine, .Net Magazine, Wizard Universe, and Wired, plus some bazillion blogs.
If you'd like to apply, please send links to samples of your work (attachments won't be opened) to email@example.com with the subject "Colorist Application." Please have samples of colored sequential comic pages, and not just single illustrations. I'd like to choose somebody within the next couple of weeks. If I like your samples, there will be other details to go over, but if you have any questions, please feel free to ask them in your email.
Thank you very much,
