Finally, the site is back up and back to normal! I’ve used the site’s down time to work on something truly special which I hope to announce soon. Keep an eye on this space for some important news in the very near future!
I’m still waiting to get ahold of my own copy of the LOG:01 book but I’m already seeing fans talking about it, and one who has posted a picture of it to their Twitter feed, talking up the quality, so I’m more excited than ever to get my hands on it to see for myself. If you haven’t gotten your’s yet, you can get it here, from Ringtail Cafe.
If you do have it, be sure to let other people know about it, because the better the book sells, the sooner I can get the next chapter out in print form. And if the books are doing well, that will make it easier for me to get new, exclusive content into the print editions like concept art, page breakdowns, and maybe even exclusive new pages expanding on elements of the story.
New year, new page!
With the holidays over and done, the comic should be returning to a more regular update schedule. It will still be every other week for the time being, but you should be able to expect a new page every other Wednesday.
Also, for those who still haven’t heard, LOG:01 of The Sprawl is now available as a print edition through Ringtail Cafe! Over 60 full colour pages! Get your copy today to get yourself a great comic book and help support me in creating more of The Sprawl.
Exciting news this week as the print edition of LOG:01 is available for purchase on the Ringtail Cafe website! Just over 60 full colour pages! Get your copy today! And with the holidays coming up, this will make a great gift for anyone you think needs more of The Sprawl in their life!
I know this one is a bit late. I moved to a new city so things have been a bit crazy on my end. Hopefully, now that the move is over, things will settle down a bit. With the next page we’ll be returning to the regularly scheduled bi-weekly Wednesday updates. That won’t be this week, but next week.
In retrospect I should add another panel to the top row to drive home the flashes of light glaring in through the window/screen. Not sure how well that comes across in these pages. Something for future revisions.
This page took way too long to get done, but I’ve got a job interview tomorrow and a new apartment lined up that I get to move into after Thanksgiving. Hopefully life will settle down for a while now.
No news this week. Going to try and knock out some overdue commissions this week so I can maybe start accepting commissions again in the next couple of weeks. No promises on that last part, though. If I do start taking commissions again I’ll probably have to raise prices. Breaking my back and spending all my time to just barely break even is no fun.
I’ll need to get a new headset, too. My old one broke and now I have no mic for streaming which is one of the reasons I haven’t been doing that as much.
Not much news this week. Things are still pretty much the scene. Last time, when I said things were calming down I meant to say I’d found some work to cover the lost clients, and that’s still true. But the work itself is keeping me busy. So much so that I only just finished this page today.
I’m not entirely happy with the high-speed lift’s sound effect on this page. I might want to come back to this page sometime in the future and work it into the page in a more satisfying way. Maybe work it into the background of the central panel somehow.
After sleeping on it, the revised version came right to me. Knocked it out in only a few minutes. Much happier with it.
Cutting it very close this week. Sorry about that. Because I had some clients bail at the last minute on projects I was supposed to start last month, I was left scrambling for work, and that threw all my plans right out the window. Things should be calming down a little now, at least for the next month or two. After that…we’ll have to see.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the page and I look forward to bringing you the next update in two weeks!
The job hunt continues. First job I interviewed for I did not get, but they may call me back in October. I applied to a couple other jobs and I’ve been trying to beef up my portfolio with graphic design and motion graphics in mind. In the meantime, I did have some good news. I managed to pick up another freelance job that should carry me through to October, so hopefully the late night panic attacks will take a bit of a break I should also be able to focus on some commissions that are still unfinished.
For the time being, the Sprawl will continue at this bi-weekly pace, but once I manage to get steady work and get my current freelance and commission work out of the way, I should be able to give it more of my time and focus again. I’ve been building up to this chapter since I outlined it in 2013, I’m really excited to share the story’s conclusion with you guys and any delay is agonizing.
Anyway, that’s all the news for now. See you in two weeks!
