Re: The Plan At Work

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

I have to admit that I’m slightly jealous of Kaizoku. In today’s comic he has his plan in motion, approaching his goal swimmingly. I could learn a lesson from this crocheted panda.

My plans tend to go as follows:
STEP 1: Formulate AWESOME IDEA
STEP 2: Imagine how AWESOME it would be to HAPPEN
STEP 3: Realize I’d need to do A LOT OF WORK
STEP 4: Remember the idea as something I’ll GET TO SOMETIME

That said, I’ve got some IDEAS and PLANS for the comic that I hope to get done. There’s going to be a special one-shot spinoff thing I want to put together for dedicated readers and by the end of the year I hope to have some stuff for sale.

Also, I want to welcome anyone coming in from Johnny Wander. It seems their link to us from back in January is giving us quite the boost in traffic. I’m a huge fan of JW. If you’re visiting from Johnny Wander via the guest comic from Questionable Content, HOWDY! Thanks for letting your curiosity lead you this way. I’m a big QC fan also.

If anyone checking us out for the first time likes what they see please keep coming back. New comics every Wednesday and a Photo every Friday. Sometime this summer I hope to speed things up and have some more regularly scheduled updates a bit more frequently.

Thanks again for reading!

If It Were Syndicated

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

I believe I made mention back when I started this comic [here] that Amu and I had made an attempt at doing a comic strip back when we first met. She was (and still is) a very meticulous artist, and I’d always wanted to do a comic strip. Back then the only thing I was thinking of was syndication. Can we put together something we could publish? While that never happened, the acceptance and explosion of “the webcomic” has given us a chance to get it done in a different way, where WE control our content.

I was at work yesterday when webcomic creator Jeph Jacques made the call for webcartoonists to draw their strip if it were syndicated. Now let’s establish a couple of things here. Firstly, my webcomic here is a photo comic. Since this is not a syndicated style that meant if I played along it would have to be drawn. So secondly, I cannot draw. I’m absolutely TERRIBLE at it. I’ve made dozens of attempts to try and learn but I lack the patience and precision finger dexterity to get past the frustration stages.

You know what, though? I still drew one, and here it is. I bring to you guys a WHAT IF scenario where Amu’s World as a concept was being syndicated in newspapers:

As illustrated above, there’s a reason this comic is made with photographs, and is not illustrated. :)
