Tried some new techniques with this one. I really prefer the look of hand lettered over digitally lettered. But I like coloring the pages better with no Dialogue/Balloons. So I split the difference and Lettered it by hand digitally.

I also learned how to use the Balloon tool in Clip Studio EX (Formerly Manga Studio 5). I'm not prepared to move my entire production over from Photoshop to Clip Studio as I know a lot of other cartoonists have done. But I do like the balloon tool a lot.

My tardiness is not due to Freelance work this time. I'm taking a class in C++ and the class is winning, (i.e. I'm Losing, It's Beating Me, etc. ). In fact, the last three assignments have been abysmal, I'm going to have to do something I've never done for a college class: seek out tutoring. I'm not embarrassed by this, mostly I just have no Idea when I'm going to fit it into my schedule, I usually only work on assignments after the kids have been put to 8-Midnight or so. I don't imagine it will be easy to find a tutor that can help me at that time, in a convenient manner.

This past weekend I had a table at Alt Press Festival at the Salt Lake City Public Library. Things went okay, but this is the second time I've forgotten to take my cash (you know, for change) to a show. I only lost one dollar sale as a result, but no change at Comic Con could be a disaster, so I'd better remember in September.

I got to talk to a lot of people about the comic, and I gave out lots of Cards with the URL, so to all my new readers, Welcome, I hope you enjoy the comics, and feel free to comment.

The Web Series

When I was a kid, there were a ton of values based programs on television. I would venture to say that, a lot of that programming helped contribute to my being a good person. There are the obvious examples: Mr. Rogers, School House Rock, Reading Rainbow. . . But there were also plenty of others, that you may not have thought to categorize that way: Transformers, G.I. Joe, . . . Dungeons and Dragons. They all contained messages about being good to one another, being truthful, honest, honorable, etc. --They were pretty overt about it, and it was contained in programming that was adventurous and fun.

I would like to create an 80's style animated show that is values based and entertaining for kids, and adults.

We're All Game features an ensemble cast of School Age friends learning how to be better people through gaming, and learning to be better gamers through lessons learned in life.

The Web Comic

Right now I'm just one person, with no budget--We're All Game was conceptualized as an animated series, but for now I'm going to start with a web comic.
