D.R.U.N.K. - Official preview!

Yep, it's here and it's done. D.R.U.N.K. is finally in hardcopy and ready to be launched into the world!

The pitch: D.R.U.N.K. is a 23-page one shot story about a couple having a difference of opinion (or something...). The title is an acronym for 'Dangerous Rage Using Negligible Knowledge', which basically describes the entire plot, so to prevent the task of reading the comic itself completely pointless I removed the dialogue in the preview pages.

This title represents my maiden voyage into self-publishing, so I hope that the fun I had making it will come through to the reader. ^^

Here are some sneaky peeks!

I intend to launch this at the London Expo in May at £2 a pop, so if anyone is attending the event please look out for it!
I have also added this title to my online shop:

Title announcement - Beholder of the Eye!

Just finished working on issue one last night - it's done! *collapses of exhaustion*
A new title, chapter 1 of an ongoing story, and it's NOT a comedy! We're talking action/drama all the way. Had a lot of fun experimenting and working on something a little more *intense*, so am really hoping that people enjoy the finished product (once it's printed).
As with D.R.U.N.K. preview pages will appear closer to the time. ^_-
Guess this is also a good time to announce my attendance at the London Expo. I've sent off for payment, so should be good to go. It's just under 4 weeks until my self-publishing debut and I'll totally be bricking it all the whole way. There's still lots I need to get done and typically I've left it all until the last minute... pray for me people.
But hopefully this means there'll be at least 2 comics on my table though so please look forward to it!

D.R.U.N.K. - it is coming!

I hold in my hands something very special - the original copy of my first ever printed comic! Draft prints from my home computer don't count, this is the real deal and very shiny it is too.
Having received this I promptly ordered a full print run - only to the then discover a typo on the very first page! <;_;> It's slight so hopefully most people will miss it. Otherwise, this is a big step forward and I'm really excited!
Have also started taking steps to get a table sorted for the London Expo, so at least I should now have a comic to sell there! :-3

Generic update

It's been a week without anything new, but may as well give an overall update as to what I'm up to:

- Japanofail is still ongoing, quite happily it seems. Up to page 8 so far which is faster than I originally intended, but uploading pages is strangely addictive so I'm struggling to help myself! ^_^

- Have sent D.R.U.N.K. off to a potential printer who seem like very nice people. Pending the proof and deciding on how many to get printed, this one is pretty much done and dusted! *squee!* How on Earth I'm going to get this into people's hands for them to read is something else entirely... o_o;

- D.R.U.N.K's pretty old now, but I'm actually nearing the end of a much newer comic. Have only just given it a name, but reckon it will be called 'Beholder of the Eye'. You heard it here first folks!

More news as and when it happens. :-)

Title announcement! - D.R.U.N.K.

It's still miles away (pending launch: May Expo), but as I've no other news may as well talk about this. This will be the front cover to my self-publishing debut! Whoo-hoo! The majority of the work is around a year old so from my perspective it's kinda old, but I found it sitting on my computer a couple of months or so ago and decided to finish it off.

It's intended to be a comedy, so hopefully that means people will find it funny. Only time will tell when it's out I guess. Now all I need to do is get the pages arranged and find a printer...

I'll do some previews closer to the time, please look forward to it! :-3

In other news, my webcomic's still going ahead - it didn't die after the first one. Up to 4 pages now - and a few people have even left comments! Please feel free to have a look. Updates have been fairly regular, but reckon I'll try and slow the pace to one a week from now on:
