New Story (Process)

Hey there folks. I just finished up the writing/planning stages of a story I'm going to do at some point (hopefully by the summer). I figured I'd post some of the process stuff. This is more or less how I do my comics these days. Maybe I'll do another one dealing with the drawing aspects of it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The story is called "I Believe In Ghosts" and it's about two friends (one of whom has already been in a comic of mine before) spending the night in a supposedly haunted house, and telling the stories of how the house became haunted.

Here's what my "scripts" look like these days. What I typically do is type up descriptions for the whole story on a page by page basis, just a few sentences that describe either what's going to go on the page, or what will be discussed. I've moved away from doing dialogue at this stage cause it can sometimes be difficult to know how many words will fit and overall just slows things down. I typically like for a page to have a beginning and an ending, so that even if it's just one page in the midst of a larger scene it feels like a complete thought. I then go in while doing the layouts and write in the dialogue anywhere it will fit on the page. It kind of makes a mess but that's life, man.

Here's my thumbnails for the story. I made them a little bit bigger than I usually do, because I was having some trouble going back and seeing what in the hell I drew on the smaller ones. I can't tell you why some things are in blue and some things are in black (spoilers), but this is usually about as much detail as I get into with these things. Nothing too crazy.

I guess that's it? Have a good weekend. Thumbs up.

Into The Waves Stuuff

Soooo, my next comic (which you can tell by the title of this post is called "Into The Waves") is all finished up on the inking front. Just have colors left to go, so it will most definitely be done in time For MICE, and also I might potentially be able to pull off another comic by then too. Who can say.

Here's a couple images from Into The Waves:

Here's Anne enjoying some fireworks in what will probably become the back cover

And here's the flyer for the all-important Jessica Flesher show at the Clam Lounge

INTO THE WAVES

Here's pretty much what the cover to my next full-length story is gonna be. It's called Into The Waves and it's about a fifteen-year-old Anne Arbor going on a summer vacation with her family. All the pencils are done now.

I hopes to have it done for MICE.

Nick Offerman Mini-Comics Bundle Super-Pack

I guess I'm gonna start selling a complete package of all my comics at some point. Most likely 10 clams for the whole gang. Save a few bucks and buy em together! (You could also save all your bucks and not buy them at all but then you'd be being a total jerkface).

This "collection" will no doubt continually be updated as I create more comics.

What I Got In The Mail Yesterday...

Look what I got in the mail yesterday. If you're unable to process images into your brain then I will tell you that it is the test copy for Anne Arbor (ooh-ooh) which will be available for purchase on this site and also at Mocca and at Mecaf this spring.

As you can see it's got so much pages that it's got a lil' baby spine on it.
