This is a weblog of one person's multi-year quest to write, draw, and publish a graphic novel. This is my story: my trials, tribulations, successes and failures. -- Robert Stradley, Weekend Artist
Well snicklefritz. I've got a million and five things to do, but I seem to have both writer's block and artist's block. Thank goodness I have a wonderful wife who is understanding and loving, not a nag.
I finally forced myself to draw and color some Valentines. This is NOT A GOOD THING!
Drew and colored Wedding cover, Vol 1 No 4. Interestingly enough, this was originally intended as vol 1 No 2, because I wanted to show the married life of a superheroine. But all those delicious problems with costumes and dating just seemed to flow out of fingers, so the wedding got delayed. It must be the effect of all those romances I read that end with a wedding.
The engagement and wedding sequence seems really crowded, so I am thinking about changing from a 28 page comic to a 32 or 36 page comic. Actually it should be a no-brainer for a webcomic, but it means changing the formats and pagecount of these pages, and it is alot easier to change it before posting than after posting. Decisions, decisions.
Drew and colored panels 85 and 86, the setup panels for JC and Priscilla..
My Amberleigh Chronicles trademark and Twisted Tail Productions trademark come due for renewal this year, so in addition to Magniloquence I need to work on Amberleigh. It is a good thing my writer's block and artist block is over, or I'd be up the crick without a paddle. Twisted Tail Productions should be a slam dunk after all the Amberleigh work gets done. Which gets done after I catch up on Magniloquence.
The bad news is that after the time spent on Amberleigh Chronicles, I am one step ahead of the monster -- that is, I am drawing and completing comics the day before they are due to be posted.
To complicate matters, Magniloquence is giving me problems. I wrote and sketched a sequence of increasinly more passionate kisses as Magniloquence and Kinematic Man discussed how soon to have the wedding. But after drawing them, Magniloquence wouldn't let me put them into the webcomic. So I got back at her by drawing the discussion we had, and posted it into Interludes. She got what she wanted, so I guess we are both happy.
Completed comics 104-107.
Completed comics 108-112, up to the wedding sequence.December
Completed 5 Christmas comics for the holidays.
