At the forefront of my excitement in comics today is the birth of my very own website. I’ve put together a ‘stage’ to exhibit my artwork on and to help me continue the journey towards being an independent creator. I’ll always want to post my artwork on CBD (if you guys’ll have me) but, I wanted a point-of-reference to direct people too at Cons and generally use as an online portfolio to develop and expand upon going forward.
It’s not been easy and is by no means finished: it is however time to push it live and let the site itself have a say in how it develops. I rushed through a couple of pages/details to get it live in time for this post, so some of the wording and little details here and there will change along the way.
I’d really like your feedback! Everyone involved in CBD and anyone else who reads this post. Please have a click around and leave a comment below if you find anything annoying about the layout/functionality etc. I’d be really interested to find out what people honestly think of it. Just please bear in mind that it’s got a long way to go and there isn’t a lot of actual content just yet in terms of web comics. The amount of titles will expand now the foundation is set for sure. Also, there are still some technical problems to overcome and critical elements yet to be included. I’m on it.
Just reading Anthony’s Drawing comics is hard work reminds me how much work is actually involved in producing this kind of content and until I start making any money, I’ll need to try and compete with the pros using time after work and at weekends only, no mean feat let me tell you… I won’t stop until something cool happens though, you have my word on that.
Remember, it’s about the story, the fiction. If you’re a writer or an artist, let’s put our heads together and create something cool, something that we can potentially print as part of FCBD next year and ruffle some feathers in the industry. Let’s celebrate comics by building our own and let’s start now dammit!
I very much see this site as an extension of CBD and would love it if you guys and girls wanted to contribute in some small way? If there’s anything I can do for you — like a link to your thing on my ‘friends’ page — or any other cool way this site could help you out, get in touch and let me know.
And say something, even if you think it’s lame 🙂
Thanks all, good to be back.
