I am pretty busy trying to get caught up on Red Plains work right now, which is why I was reluctant to start this blog when I did. I wasn’t even sure what I wanted to do with this blog other than “get out there”. I’m not going to lie, I hate self promotion because it makes me uncomfortable and I also hate that friends have to see me say “Hey! Look at me!” more than usual.
Then, the other day, while having a pretty bad day I decided what I wanted the main focus of this blog to be. Oddly enough, it will be about me. Not me in the “I had a bad day and I fucking hate people, here, let me tell you about it…” way.
A month or two ago Dick Blick had a sale on paper. I went nuts and ordered a ton. Then realized I ordered 4 pads of Strathmore 5″x17″ comic strip bristol pages along with my other paper. I really didn’t have a project in line for it and was a little bummed.
So, this is where I am. These pads contain 24 sheets. Thats 96 (in case you were wondering). So, I am going to do 96 comic strips using TreeBeerd. It’s me without having to worry about repercussions, I guess. I don’t know, I am a grumpy guy, ask anyone who knows me. I actually hope this will be somewhat therapeutic for me, but probably not.
So, I am doing exactly as many as I have pages for right now, and then it’s over. I am posting a preview tonight. It’s a little sloppy as I took a Red Plains break and did it up real quick. I may even change tools as it goes on and the look could change tons. So bare with me and try to enjoy. I won’t be doing these on a regular schedule until I am caught up on Red Plains and even then it will probably only be one a week. At least until I have nothing else to do.
Yes, some will be a tad on the crude side.
I will be doing other posts and still showing my work process, just wanted to put a little start out here. I needed it to help me understand why I have a blog. I know now, because in real life I would be shot for saying whats on my mind around humans 90% of the time.
Very good for all of us out here that you got your blog together! Congrats.
