Exit: stage left.
For the last year and a half (or somewhere about there), I’ve been making these one page gag comics. Well, for now, this is the last one. It’s been a lot of fun to work on, and it’s given me experience, but now it’s time to move on to something else. Artists often know when something’s over, and I’ve been feeling it for a little while now. BUT FEAR NOT because I am moving from one comic project to another. As you probably know, I like working on webcomics. They are cheap to produce (read: free), so I’ll be closing up this web comic and working on something new.
Well, sort of. I can finally announce to everyone that I’ve revived an old project. I’ve gone back to the beginning, and have been working on Egghead. Egghead was the first story Hot Cakes every put out. But when the artist went away to school, I vowed to put it away. It didn’t feel right to have someone else draw the story. Fast forward to now, and I’ve a choice: I’ll write AND draw it. I’ve re purposed it into a weekly, old timey comic strip. There will actually be a narrative to this one, as it continues week to week.
Now, as I said above, I really enjoyed working on this project, and just because it’s over, doesn’t mean I’m through with it. I’ve been redesigning several characters that have appeared throughout the comics to start a new title. This will all be set in a town called Beacon Valley, and will feature many of the characters you’ve seen me work with in the past, and some new ones, too. I’m still developing this, so I’ll keep you updated on my progress.
So, soon Egghead will launch. And I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has read my comics and taken this journey with me so far. In fact, that’s what this last comic is. When I released my first comic, it was to the George Harrison song “What is Life?” That time, it was about comics. I decided to close it that way too. Accept this time, it’s about you. Thank you, thank you, thank you, and I’ll see you in the funnies.
