Why Hello Mr. Pouty Pants! Is My Sidekick Home?


This week we get the exciting conclusion to our duo's battle with El Diablo Hermoso. Rest assured we will see more of him in the future. I have to say I'm finding that Tuesdays tend to be my most productive days comic wise. Is it because it's a last minute thing? Not really. Well, kind of... I spent most of the week thinking about how I was going to conclude this story arc. I have most of the stories planned out well in advance, about 4 weeks worth of comics at a time so I don't run out of stories, but figuring out how to execute this comic was a little tricky this time. This comic only ended up taking a few hours to make though! That's sketch, inks, paints, and text started at noon and finished before 6PM. It usually takes longer so that's pretty neat.

I took a screenwriting class before I graduated from college and for our final project we had to write an Act I of a full length film. It was pretty fun. I wrote an animated detective film that was kind of like a reverse Scooby Doo, where instead of four kids and their pet solving mysteries it's four pets and a kid. And it's supposed to be the kind of comedy you would see on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block of programming. It was a fun project but we only wrote Act I. So it's unfinished. I'm thinking about finishing it but I'm also thinking about just animating the first scene of it, make a little pilot, and treat it like a T.V. show. 

I think that's my next project or at least I want it to be. I'd have to do all the voices myself, which is fine I guess. I always think i'm good at doing different voices but then when I go to record them they all just sound like me... Weak! But we'll see. Stay tuned...
