First off, hi! I don’t do blog posts over here too often and it’s probably time to change that. There’s a lot going on in my life and I figured, why not share?
First, I don’t know if you’re aware of my other webcomic or not. It’s called Mailbox Rocketship and it’s a very different animal from EA. It’s a story about a group of high school students and how they deal with one of them developing super powers, and alien invasion, and Death himself. It’s also comedy which is something I’ve missed doing a LOT. It basically takes the old characters from Kota’s World, makes them younger, and puts them in a new situation. It’s also a lot better written than my first series so please head over and take a look!
So how’s life? Complicated. Since my dad passed I’ve been trying to find the new normal. I’m kinda there but I’m still working on it. My third job (graphic design) has dried up so I’m down a couple of hundred bucks a month. My first job (office work) is ending in February since the boss is retiring. That’s my main source of income and I haven’t been able to find a replacement job. My second job (art gallery) is stable but doesn’t give me very many hours a week. I won’t lie. Scary times are coming. You can help though! I’ve still got my Patreon site going and you can help there! You can also read “Awake”, the prequel series to The Errant Apprentice!
Awake is interesting. The first issue tells about the early days of magic returning and ends with Terry’s dad getting his magic sword from elves on the Natchez Trace. Issue 2, which just ended, is about Terry’s first day of school. Issue 3 starts next week and will tell the story of Terry’s first run in with a dragon! Head over and check it out!
Anyhoo, that’s it for this week. Expect another update next Friday!
Well, this is certainly embarrassing. The comic is about half inked right now and will most likely update on Friday unless I can get it done sooner. We had a minor disaster crop up this weekend with my PC and we had to format and reinstall Windows. By last night I had the process more or less finished and I’m officially back up and running. I just didn’t have time to finish the page for today. I’ll update as soon as I can!
