Once a day…

I’m kind of enjoying this one page per day thing. These are taking me between 10-50 minutes. (I hope, I haven’t timed them. I’ll be horrified if they’re taking more than an hour…).

I’ve sort of got an ending for this story, but I’m actually tempted to keep going. Not with this, with something else in November.

The benifit is the pressure is low – I just sit and think of something to do and draw that. It’s a little more pressure a few days in since now you actually have a story and an end point you’ve got to get to, and you can’t quite meander all over.

My plan is to do a simple 28 pages story, with cover and back cover, it means, potentially I have a 32 page comic. Which I’ll self publish and bring to cons etc (but in very limited runs).

I’m trying to think of the best way to give this away online though. My initial plan was just push it twitter (which is satisfying artistically if not financially rewarding) but you guys deserve it exclusively. 

New plan might be: one page a day on here (for all paying patreons) then at the weekend I unlock all the pages and send people over to read a week’s worth.

That’s worth considering.

(Course everything will fall apart the moment I have too much work on… which I already do. But this is like a little break from that)

At some point I should investigate comixology for selling digital comics.

My youngest son has been doing his own inktober comic too. It’s been fun sitting with him (and he’s enjoying mine) and I’ve been pushing that on twitter. I’ll maybe link his here to.

Anyway, any thoughts you have on the matter that’d be awesome. 

Oh, this Saturday is 24 hour comic book day – but you’re nuts if you think I’m committing to doing one of those.
