Recruiting for "Trial Run," my first anthology, was an overwhelming success. I have some amazing artists working on this project and some super talented authors, too. Our team makeup is approximately 70/30 artists to writers - which surprised me quite a bit. So much progress has already been made. Most of the scripts have been … Continue reading Trial Run Update
A couple years ago, I had stumbled upon a meme which suggested that 90% of all sharks were actually hedgehogs in disguise. Writing "Shark Attack??" allowed me to take a much needed break from my usual diet of action-adventure and gave me the opportunity to try working with new artists. A huge part of … Continue reading Of Sharks and Frogs
Sometimes - no matter what effort you put into something - you feel like you hit a brick wall. I've been working on Black gold for years - literal years now - and I grew frustrated with the project. At one point, it felt like nothing was going right. I just had to put it … Continue reading Hitting a brick wall and somehow breaking through (or an update)
Everyone has to specialize in something. Specializing, however, can lead to one's work becoming stagnant. Since I started writing Black Gold a year ago, my wheelhouse - and slowly growing portfolio - has been filled with action-adventure pieces. I've dabbled a little in science fiction, and a bit in fantasy, but everything I've written thus … Continue reading Substituting one Ice Cream for Another
I'm experiencing the oddest thing. I'm writing for myself. I know right? As I write this, drafts have been sent to clients, and I have nothing on my to-do list. Time for a Black Gold update! I've been working closely with Nunun in getting Black Gold: Prelude to a Storm produced. Our first issue is … Continue reading Into the Storm
If I were the sort of writer that had space for dedications in his or her work, I would have a page dedicated wholly to Starbucks. Snobs from Seattle will tell you independent coffee shops are the way to go, but this girl runs on free refills of their cold brew coffee. Wait. You didn't … Continue reading This week’s Starbucks trip~
I have come a long way in three months. A long way. In May, I was an aspiring comic book writer who had a single concept with no means to have it produced. Now, I've finished my first comic script contract. It started when a member of deviantART contacted me, wanting a story commissioned that … Continue reading Melodie
When a creator first conceives a comic concept, there are a lot of things that go through their minds. How does the story play out? What art style would best tell my story? For writers with no artistic talent: how am I going to fund this thing? But there's one thing that I'm fairly certain … Continue reading Mind. Blown.
My writing schedule has become so packed! Black Gold is still trucking along. Pages two and three are being inked and will soon be colored. We're still on track to go to print this December. So Black Gold for Christmas. Issue two - Into the Storm - is in the planning stages. I have an outline in … Continue reading Updates all Around!
