Happy belated 2019 everyone. It has been too long since I’ve sat down and actually had time to write a blog with some significance or what I felt was on my mind to share. I have been working on my web comics for 8 years and I can say that it has been a great time for me. I love learning new ideas about making them, from the technology to the style that I use in my art. It also is a great way for me to relax and cope with stress before I start my morning. I normally do some type of art work before heading in to work, and it helps me to focus. With that being said, there are some downsides to making my web comics, and my biggest one comes up more times than I feel that it should..Time.
I talked about this before on my podcast The Learning Curve that time is truly not on my side when creating my web comics. I’ve focused on carving out pockets of time (in the mornings), and although I feel that I’ve been better at balancing my time with my life and web comics, I want more time to actually work to be better. I’m not saying that I’m stopping with making web comics. I’m saying the opposite, I’m hoping in 2019 that I can make MORE time. All I want is to make the type of web comics that people can read ad enjoy, like I do when I read so many great stories.
Let me know what types of problems you face making your web comics.
Finished the next page of Shield of Justice Volume 3, page 18. Feels great getting that finished. Now to truly relax today.
It has been a long haul so far for me these last two months. I moved to a new home, and I started back in online school again, so you can see how I had gotten behind on my web comic. Things seem to have leveled out again so next month, I’ll be back up to speed with The Learning Curve podcast (second Tuesday of the month), Capes and Cowl blog and posting Shield of Justice on its normal schedule (second Sunday of the month). It’s been difficult, but thanks to you all for hanging with me on this journey and hopefully for new and current followers, I won’t disappoint.
I’ve got my studio back up and after being away from drawing, it felt good to restart the last page I worked on for the shield of justice. now, I’m far behind on the timeline so I’ll be working on the webcomic updates.
stay tuned, it’ll be a crazy run.
