Today’s page, 18. We have achieved title! The names listed are totally an in-joke which about four people will get. That’s one of the fun things about doing comics; making little references that are just for you.
Just for fun; this is what page 15 looked like before I took it into Illustrator. Because Illustrator is about as computerized as you can get, it’s important to me that I keep things as organic feeling in the end as possible.
Ok, I lied. Had a talk with my partner tonight and he told me that I needed to get over needing people to like my work. I have to do it just for me and not care if anyone else digs it or not. So part of that ‘therapy’ will be posting it wherever and just learning to deal. So I am.
Page 12. This is the last page I’m going to post here. I’ll keep posting to my Flickr, mostly as that’s the best way for me to keep track of my own work. Thanks to the few folks to who came by to look.
Six years ago, Ghiroy was a totally different comic that I was working on. It was meant to be the comic I did after Tamino. Never happened. Like the bunnies, I worked on the design, backstory and main character and never got around to the actual comic. Well, this is why I never throw anything away. You never know how you might use it later. So somehow, the stuff above became what I’m working on now. For anyone that’s interested.
