Lexicon, Lord willing

Okay, so for Christmas, I want to make a Lexicon of all my material, to share with E. and M. I want their books to be special though, so I may need to put original art in them, that’s different in each one. I don’t know, this is all if the Lord wills.

I’m just not sure yet, but it’s what I seem to be working on. I feel like it’s pretty low priority to me, though. I have a lot of responsibilities, but I long to make it into a career or be recognized for my talent. However, those aren’t goals, but desires. And if God likes my comic, a smile from Him is worth more than a standing ovation in a football stadium.

More later, but know I am working, praise the Lord.

Christmas Gift

Okay, so, I’m working on kind of a lexicon or precursor to an omnibus for Christmas. I want to give M. and E. something special, something that requires work and thought. Granted, I still want to make comics, Lord willing, and send those out at Christmas or something, maybe with an occasional Spirit of Christmas kind of theme, like the comics used to do back in the early days (not sure which decade, but remembering hearing about it). Most of the artists and writers that made those stories were Jewish, so it was probably a little hard having to make those. I guess it’d be like me doing a comic centered around something like Kwanza or Ramadan. Isn’t there something in Islam that’s against icons? That is, they don’t like people drawing Isa (Jesus) or especially Muhammad. So, yeah, that comic would probably not be well received.

So, more on that later. I want to try to start another year’s worth of comics, and make another annual. I have the comics from 2016-2018, where the Lord helped me be very creative and industrious. I think I did something like 12 or 14 different comics that year? In 2019 I may have completed one, although I worked on several.

I don’t know if it’s God’s will that I pursue comics. I mean, do I do it for friends and family? Do I sell them? License them somehow? Get syndicated and make one a week for the next however long? Not sure. What I do know is that I want to start again. I pray the Lord helps me. I would like to do a weekly strip, probably periodic rather than episodic. So storylines and arcs and all that. We’ll just have to see.

Combined Blog?

Okay, so.. I’ve been working on the new blog for a couple years now. I’ve wanted to do a web comic and a tabletop group. Before I fell off the videogame wagon, I had combined it all under a project that attempted to put my creative passion together under one umbrella.

Then I spent two months playing Warframe of all things. I wonder if that happened because I got proud. Because I didn’t give God the glory.

Well, God gave me the opportunity to create again. He didn’t have to. In 2014 he brought me back from a near death experience. 9 IV’s of fluids and 3 hospital stays later, I began to recover.

Still, when I was sick, dying, a nun came in and prayed for me. I snapped out of my coma, said something I don’t remember, and began to heal.

So let me start this new chapter, or new page, or new paragraph, with giving God the glory. God doesn’t just save you from something. He saves you for something. Whatever your past, you have a ministry to people who have gone through or continue to go through what you did. It’s my job, and your job, and the job of every Christian to be an ambassador for the kingdom.

The sky rolled back, the stars fell, and at the last moment, before reality was torn asunder, a still small voice, and then, in a single moment, it was restored.

That’s not a quote or anything. At the end of creation, when the heavens and earth are consumed by fire, there will be a complete end, and then God will place the new Heavens and New Earth. (Rev 21 if you want to read it for yourself).

Anyway, I’m not sure what He has in store for me. It may never be another comic, or a book, or a film, or anything, but whatever it is, I pray that I am sufficient to be used by him.

Blocked on Comics?

Okay, so I have been making some comics, but nothing weekly. I’ve got a couple pages done in an issue form of a comic. I did manage a one panel gag which I was pretty proud of. It’s been a while since I posted on this website. I haven’t forgotten you, just not sure how to reach you.

I started a mailing list that gets updates and a group text that also gets them. It seems a little more focused, a little more purposeful. I’m hoping that’s a better way to go.

You can also check out my new blog.

I guess that’s all that’s really going on. Thank you for reading, and I hope you like the new site. I’ll try to update you when I finish projects, although what exactly I’m going to do with them, I’m not sure.

Webcomic

Okay, so, I’ve decided to publish more web comics for now. I do want to make things to sell, and that will be separate, but I really like having a weekly deadline. It keeps me motivated to create, keep my feet to the fire so to speak.

Having said that, I still feel like I need direction, a mentor, or someone who can advise me on how to make my comics better. They’re decent, and I know that if I do enough of them, if I work on my art and writing, eventually they will improve. However, I have to keep publishing them, keep updating, and all that. Meanwhile, I have plenty of stand alone stories to tell in other mediums, for money.

Thanks for reading, and hope I didn’t spook you with the previous post.

Webcomic Suspended

Hey guys. I’ve decided that after the Muffin and Sisters arc, I’ll be taking a break from webcomics. Now, I won’t stop making comics, but I won’t be publishing them for free on this website. The website will stay up, I don’t intend on changing that. I may add little things here or there.

I currently have four scripts I’m working on. I recently did a page of pencils only to realize I’ll have to redo it. I want to sell pdf’s of my comics online and print on demand, especially for conventions and such. I hope you have enjoyed reading my comics as much as I’ve enjoyed making them. I may occasionally post strips and such here, but.. I’m working on things, and working on new ways to present them.

Thank you for your support.  You can keep up with me on my personal blog.

Thanks for reading.

Back in the swing

Hey, so we’re updating again. Got a bit of a buffer. It’ll be back to making one a week, and maybe if I have extra time I can do a more detailed, realistic comic. Still, I know that by doing this regularly I will get better at it. The more scripts I write, the more I paint, the more fiction, the more comics I make, I will improve.

I hope you enjoy my comic! After I finish this issue, I will probably upload a pdf of it. Unfortunately, I’ve never really done that before to my satisfaction. I need Adobe Indesign, and it’s more than I can afford right now. So I’ll need to try a third party one or else go back to ye olde Microsoft Word.

Still at it

Hey, I’m still working on Muffin and Her Sisters (name to be announced) comic. Been playing around with some watercolor painting (physical). I might look up tutorials on how to make the comic look like a watercolor painting. I would definitely experiment with it and only use it on one issue. The other webcomic is coming a lot slower. I’m having to use a lot of reference pictures (stock photos), and I haven’t been as faithful working on that one. I think I’m still working on page 1 (although it’s almost finished). I miss posting here once a week, but think that my comic will be better understood if it’s posted per issue. Hope you understand. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email me through the contact page.

Lack of deadline and lack of product

Okay, so I’ve made it where I’m not publishing every week. The only problem with that is without a deadline I haven’t produced as much work. Maybe I can go back to trying to do a page a week, and maybe even post them here, but I want to consolidate the issues in the end and then publish them somewhere else.  Most of my comics tend to leave a lot of story hooks. I’ve followed some of them.

It’s sad. I posted almost once a week for three years, and now find that I can’t do that anymore. I think I should go back to the way it was. Publish them here, and then compile them. I’ve got all of the ones from last year’s compiled, but I haven’t really done anything with them. I’m not good at converting them. I’ve almost thought about hiring someone to do it, make them look more professional.

In addition, I have one comic that may be difficult to finish. It’s in a more realistic style, and is taking a lot of work. I may have to put that one on the back burner? Or something? I don’t think I can do a page of it a week, although I might could show my progress or something? It’s nice to know I can do more than a doodle world kind of style, but it’s definitely stretching my talent and ability. That is, however, probably a good thing.

Been trying to learn more about anatomy, trying to learn blender. I want to learn guitar more, too, so I have a lot of things to work on besides ATC’s, Tot, and making miniatures via 3d printing.

Just wanted to let you know what was up.

If you’re having trouble reading the comic, go back a few pages. The comic is a serial comic rather than episodic (for the most part). Hope that helps.
