Hey gang, I've joined the masses and started work on a web comic. The premise is basically the random things my friend and I come up with, so it will mostly range from obscure things brought about by delusion to vastly exaggerated events from our lives. This means that it really has no set "genre" or "topic" and I intend to use the comic as a sort of blog for my day and random thoughts. So with that in mind, I'll post two strips I have done as well as a brief idea of what the blog would read that will accompany them.
"Hey, thanks. I suppose my mouth is kinda pretty."
The bathroom, in most part, is a sacred place. Office bathrooms less so, but there are generally assumed rules that apply to anywhere someone might have to be peeing in the direct vicinity of another human being. Apparently some people are unaware of these rules. Rules that include not standing outside of stalls, staring at the door, until someone finishes their business. At nine at night. When there is no one else in the office. And you have managed to creep into the bathroom without so much as a peep to alert the innocent toileter to you presence until they finally open the door and the only thing they can think as they see your eyes lock with their's is "huh, so tonight is the night i finally get raped in a bathroom."
"Cedar smells like shit! Maple syrup is too sugary!"
Lying is a curious thing. When done well it can lead one to ruin. When done poorly, it is often the height of entertainment for anyone smart enough to see through your ruse. The other day Elliott regaled me with a tale his uncle told him. It involved lumberjacks and the fighting of said people. To be precise, it was a story about his uncle apparently fighting every lumberjack, in every bar, in every state. Which begged the questions: Where do you find a lumberjack? And when you find one, how would you pick a fight with them?
So tell me what you think. I'm curious to get some opinions on the work and hopefully do some finer tuning on future strips before I put the site up. Violent criticism bordering on insults is expected, as well as the ten or so "you should add color" comments.
Other than critiques though, I would love to hear any general tips you all might have for getting a web comic running and keeping it that way. Thanks.
