Here’s a poster I made to keep me motivated.  I still haven’t finalized her design yet but the title is settled on.  In fact, I’m opening up a little contest just for kicks.  The first person to guess the exact title will receive a quick sketch from me for being a smart cookie.  Shoot me an email or private message if you figure it out!  You have until the comic officially launches or when the title is released, which probably won’t be for a while.

EDIT (10.9.2017): Contest closed.

Important Things

Q: The most important thing when attempting a project of large scale is ________.
a) having a story worth telling 
b) having a story that works
c) having a good story  
d) having a good story that works and that one feels from their gut is worth telling

Let’s hope the answer is D.  If I don’t make it to the end of this project then I guess I didn’t have much to begin with at all.  

On Your Mark

This whole thing started when I finished the first draft of a story back in 2012.  I pulled out the script a few months ago on a whim.  Surprisingly, it wasn’t as bad as I was expecting it to be.  There were definitely some parts that needed fixing, but overall it seemed to be working.  There was one problem though.  I wrote it imagining a live-action film.  Unfortunately, there’s no way it could be made without heavy CGI and visual effects.  I doubt anyone would be interested in putting up the budget for it either.  What’s funny is that when I first came up with the idea I pictured it as a comic or a book.  The more I thought about it, the more I realized that a comic might be the best way to go.  I’ve been wanting to make one for a long while and now I have the excuse to do it.  So!  Here I am, documenting my progress (or failure) online.  It’s going to be a tonne of work, but I’m up for the challenge.  

If you make people laugh or cry about little black marks on sheets of white paper, what is that but a practical joke?  All the great story lines are great practical jokes that people fall for over and over again.
