Q:I've read your story about the princess and sword of legends and I really love it! It's brilliant and I was wondering if there's going to be any more?
Thank you! And seriously, thank all of you for the crazy good response I’ve gotten, you guys are too nice!
As for more Haircut, I dunno! It’s meant to be enjoyed as a completely standalone story that I’d sell as a mini comic at cons (I’m not tabling at TCAF but I fully intend to have this printed and ready on hand by then).
I’m already thinking about my next short story to put together, because they’re fun and really good storytelling exercises but to be honest, I’m not completely opposed to doing some bonus/side stuff for Haircut either. I dunno! Keep an eye out.
And hey, if you liked Haircut, maybe check out my fantasy webcomic Boozle, it updates every Friday!
Q:hey! quick thing, i just wanted to say i read your story "Haircut" and i loved it! you are really talented! the art in the story is absolutely brilliant. i hope my art can be as good as yours one day. sorry, im just a fan who wanted to tell you how much i appreciated your work :)
Aw shucks, thanks! I’m glad you liked it! And hey, I’m still getting the hang of this whole art thing myself, if we just keep drawing we’ll both keep getting way better.
How A Baby Page is Born (or Written)
I did say I wanted to make more of an effort to put stuff on this blog, so I thought it might be fun to show some of my process!
Because of the nature of Boozle, with the main character not talking and all, I don’t write a script, really. I go straight to thumbnails and I typically do a couple passes of those before I get started on a new chapter. Here’s the thumbnails for the Slime Frog sequence from the last chapter under the cut:
A look into my messy style of writing comics!
And that’s the end of the chapter! Posting the full page because I like doing that for the last pages. I’m still working on the bonus page but I’m not sure for how long exactly I’ll have power, so I’m throwing this up now.
End of another chapter, thanks for reading!
Here are a handful of previews of that comic I’m picking away at. I’m about halfway through inking it! Eventually I’ll think of a title for this thing.
All my hourlies in one convenient place.
