I just finished writing my first review for Girls like Comics, and I'm quietly freaking out. I reviewed a webcomic called Mysteries of the Arcana. I'm not sure when my review will be live. I'm very new to this whole thing. Weirdly, I think this exercise will be good for me. When it comes to … Continue reading Girls Like Comics (nudge)
Now that we've wrapped Uncounted, I'm moving on to something different here on Monday. Different, but still comic and webcomic related, actually. Soon, I'll be signing on as a reviewer over at Girls like Comics! I'm looking forward to stretching my comic-reading muscles a little bit, and I'm terrified. I have written before that I'm … Continue reading Girls like Comics
If you've ever read Julia Cameron's stuff, you know that she often says that the inner artist is a child. That often creativity comes from a place of play, and fun. Right now, this is the way my inner artist feels about cartoons, writing blogs, and doing just about everything except flopping on the sofa … Continue reading I Don’t WANNA. [CARTOON]
As I mentioned in Sunday's post, I really like rounding up lessons learned when I finish projects. Since yesterday's page of Uncounted was officially the end of the webcomic story, I feel like it's time to do the same hindsight work. Prior to writing Uncounted, I'd never tried to tell a story in the webcomic … Continue reading Uncounted: Post Mortem
I am still figuring out my lessons learned from Uncounted, so I'll save those for tomorrow. First, go read the final page. Then, go read the whole thing from the beginning. Then tell me what you think! This is my first end-to-end experience of writing comics, and webcomics are especially new to me, so … Continue reading Uncounted: the final page [Webcomic!]
Click the image above to read the latest page of Uncounted. If you haven't been reading it all along, the fun starts here. This is one of those necessary bridge pages.... I'm really looking forward to next week! Squee!
The scene in today's Uncounted was probably the second major visual I had for the world - how to send simple but secret messages. The idea of using painted rocks to mean things between two people is weird. I mean, why not send a note? Well. Paper is in low supply, for one thing. For … Continue reading Uncounted … [Webcomic nudge]
Sometimes I break my to do lists up into categories so I can get a smattering of things done across them. (This means doing some of the things I have to do, and balancing them with things I want to do.) One of the category sets I like to use is "Beginning, Maintaining, and Finishing," … Continue reading Three Things I’m Working On This Week
Sophie survived E4! Of course, she had an IV, and The Doctor's constant attention. But she lived through it! Hooray! Really, that's kinda the whole point of today's page. That and the Doctor is stepping up his game a little. He's turning into who he will be in Salvaged. Click the image for today's comic: Oh, … Continue reading Uncounted is up! [Webcomic]
I really like that as we get closer to the ending of Uncounted, I can pull in other pages from the past that we're circling back around to refine and hone. It's fun for me, in a nerdy way. Today's page goes back to the Corps, and to Mistral trying to do his job. In a way, this … Continue reading Uncounted!
