This is gonna be an "just checking in" type blog, where I address some things that you might be wondering about. If you're confused as to why I claimed on my front page that I would update this blog "weekly", and yet, there hasn't been a post for like three months, allow me to explain. To be blunt, I haven't had the inspiration to write anything substantial. I've always been very "hush hush" about what I'm working on, which is kind of problematic for blogging. Most of my posts right now are about video games and technology, because I'm very passionate about those things. But I realize that the average Joe coming to my site (aka you) might not be as interested in those things, and even if you are, you would rather go to a different site to read about them. Furthermore, it's totally unfocused. This is supposed to be a COMIC site, for cryin' out loud. So, I'm going to try my best to completely move away from that, leave the video game stuff for A Byte of Life, and blog about things that are more unique to me.
That being said, here's a short rundown of what I've been cooking up.
When I was a little Redman, I used to spend long hours reading legendary comic strips such as Calvin and Hobbes, and Peanuts (as well as many other not-as-legendary, but still awesome comic strips). The black and white, three-or-four panel, new one every day format for these comics has always stuck with me. It's simple, but has vast potential for telling extremely long stories and revealing complex characterizations, one little piece at a time. So, I started sketching out some ideas, and eventually came up with a pretty solid concept for a daily comic strip I could run right here on the site. It would be a total blast for me to write, and it would provide some consistent content for you to enjoy (cause when I say daily, I mean daily). "Why didn't I think of this earlier?", I said to myself. The world may never know. There's a pretty strong chance that this will be a reality, but I can't promise anything yet.
Next, I have some things to say about the animation side of my creative endeavors. I am working fairly intensely on a new animation that's going to blow your socks off, I promise. I'm going to incorporate everything I've learned about 2D and 3D animation into one energetic package. Here's a conceptual image:
All I'm going to say about it is that it's going to be action-oriented, which you could probably gauge from this image. I really do hope you enjoy it when I'm finished with it, because it's already proving to be quite the project.
That's all I got at the moment, but thanks for taking the time to read this. I hope I'll be able to make a new post sooner rather than later, but we'll just have to see.
