So, excepting a sketch from earlier today, I haven’t really updated this in a while. Part of this is school’s fault, a lot of it is mine, and some small part is my current living situation. An illustration if you will:
What you see, right there, is my work station. You might notice a blanket underneath it. That’s because it is also my bed. I don’t have a desk at my family’s place where I am currently residing. This makes drawing a pain in the butt, and hooking up the scanner moreso. But I am trying to get back in the swing of things.
Another problem is with the comic’s name. One of my friends told me a couple months back about Stick Comics at stickycomics.com, a comic with a similar premise to mine (but different in many key ways) that shares an unfortunately similar name. Except Cristiann Macauley (who draws, writes and own Sticky Comics to my knowledge) started her comics several years before I went through my brief get off my duff and do something phase. Oops. She very graciously let me keep the Sticky Notes Comic name with no muss, no fuss but I wasn’t sure I wanted to keep it. Even if the content itself is different (I believe that other than originating on sticky notes the two are pretty different) I really didn’t want to have my name so close to someone’s branded work. I could just never decide what I wanted to do about that.
But, gosh darn it, I do really miss posting comics and sharing stuff, so I’m going to try and make a more concerted effort to post stuff on the internet. I am currently writing and drawing a new comic that I will post some art for tomorrow (or maybe later tonight if I feel really ambitious and don’t feel like sleeping). I’m not sure Sticky Note Comics is entirely dead, but I’m certainly rethinking what I want to do with it. That is probably going to necessitate a name change around here…
(Also, if you really liked Stick Note Comics, let me know. I am more likely to do more from life stuff if people tell me they want more from life stuff).
