I’ve added new comics and illustrations to my Gallery! Well, technically none of them are “new”, but I’ve finally scanned them and cleaned them up. Enjoy!
So yeah, unfortunately no new page today. Hopefully this won’t become a habit, but I’m still stranded on Shelter Island. However, I am doing what I promised, and posting the seven-page comic BRAINSTORM in the Comic Art section of the Contact/Gallery page. Hopefully it makes up for those hoping to see more hilarious child-abuse and mental scarring today.
Yeah, unfortunately, I won’t be able to update this week. The page is actually penciled, but I won’t able to ink or scan it this friday. I’m doing work out on Shelter Island right now, and there’s really no convenient way to upload it without buying a $20 train ticket out of Greenport back into the city. Plus, this job has to be done by the end of this week.
HOWEVER, finishing work out here will allow me the time and space to work on the comic and do some job hunting with relative comfort for the next few months. So it’s for the best in the long run. To compensate, however, I’ll upload my seven page story BRAINSTORM onto the Comics section this Friday, and possibly update two days in a row next week.
Hey all! I’m adding a new comic to the Comic Art section and updating the Storyboards page. But mainly, I want to give everyone a heads-up that I’ll be at SVA’s mini comic-convention, Fresh Meat, over on the West Side in the 21st Street Building. Check me out along with Eric Arroyo and Kou Chen as well as a buttload of amazing artists. I’ll be selling poster prints of some of my illustration and fan work, as well as two minis;
After Uruk: Tablets I-III is a combination of my Junior Thesis and my Senior Portfolio piece, and something I eventually hope to publish as a seven-part graphic novel. This near-60 page comic is a post-apocalyptic retelling of the Epic of Gilgamesh, primarily revolving around the taming and education of Enkidu and Gilgamesh’s meeting with Ishtar.
Brainstorm is an anthology comic of my work over the past year. This 34-pager contains alot of work featured in the comics section of this site, along with the titular 7-page story, and the first 11 pages of Hardcase McCorman. So you’ll get to see a single page that won’t be published until next Friday. Real big incentive, huh?
So just when I get the sidebar mapped out properly, I try uploading it to the site, and it comes out looking like this,
Yeah, the web gods or whatever have it out for me.
I’ll keep trying to get the damn thing straightened out but as of right now, between working on this comic and projects for senior year, it’s not a major priority. It’ll happen at some point, hopefully sooner than later, but for now.
So I’ve got a whole week to work on my Senior Portfolio, this site, and maybe get job.
It’s gonna be an exciting few days to say the least. By the time I update next, this place will undergo a couple of cosmetic changes. Nothing excessive, but nothing insignificant either. Alot of the work will go towards the Gallery, and it’s highly likely I’ll be adding two new categories to it as well.
Keep on keepin’ on guys! And keep your eyes on the many new comics developing in the REAL HEROES section!
So a few days ago, I tried setting up the “VOTE” function prematurely to decide the next storyline after the one I have planned after “Seeing Red” (Yeah, that might be a while…)
Anyway, I tried using a free voting site to get coding, but it was kinda blah looking, and they had an ugly and unsubtle ad for their site at the bottom of it. I mean gee, God forbid they get proper recognition for their software, but it really did look a tad tacky. With that said, I’m gonna try finding a more elegant way to add a polling option soon, but it’s not a high priority as of now due to it’s results not being relevant until much later and low traffic on the site anyway. Right now, my priorities are editing some of the cosmetic details like custom buttons for the gallery pages and still fixing up issues I detailed in my earlier entry.
With that said, thank you everyone who’s been checking out the comic so far, and I hope ya keep following! Next comic will be up in just two days.
So using the buttons on Eric Arroyo’s site as a template, I’ve got around to making custom banners for the webcomics in the “REAL HEROES” section. I’ll probably be doing more cosmetic stuff like this in the coming weeks to give the site a little more character, as well as figure out a nice way to advertise random comics from the section on the sidebar.
So at long last, this place is pretty much kosher. I’ve spent the last few hours trying to fix up the site, edit any typos, and make sure it’s solid overall. I’m still having some issues with the color of the fonts in the archives (which I’ve found a temporary solution for), and my digital portfolio. It seems that when you scroll through the images on any of the galleries, it goes through them in order of when they were uploaded into my media library rather than in the order I added them to the page’s gallery. Thankfully, all the comics both in the Comic Art and Nuzlocke Fan Run sections are in their proper reading order, so I’m not too broken up about it. But it causes the descriptions for each piece to be out of order, ruining the flow of you’re supposed to read them. I’m sure i’ll fix it up soon enough, as well as a few other minor tweaks to the site.
