This character has been tumbling around in my head for a few years. She has a USB tail.
Hair may or may not be inspired by a children’s cartoon I used to watch >.>
Her name is Jamie and she feels most comfortable “plugging in” to computers and shutting the world off. She’s almost never seen without her headphones and Space Invaders t-shirt. She has diagnosed social anxiety. Her friends may see her as cold and detached and criticism her for her escapism tendencies. In reality, it’s simply due to her own stress in dealing with other people. She prefers a world of computer programming, algorithms and scripts.
Internet has been acting up- if I reblog something personal or unfitting for my art blog I humbly apologize. Weird things have been happening to my dashboard and things get re-blogged that I don’t even intend and it takes me a while to notice. :(
I think your blog is for a great cause. I am posting it for my viewers to see, too. As an emetophobic I appreciate you guys taking the initiative to provide this to the public.
AGDKLHSGLKHDG this made my day anon you have no idea how much this means to me.
I often debate with myself whether or not this story is worth it, but it’s little things like this that remind me that people do care.
I don’t know how long I will be working with the artist I’ve currently hired- if something comes up I will post again that the job is open once more, if you’re willing to apply at that point.
I hope your trip goes well!
I started working on this story in 2006. At the time, it was a novel. I finished the novel, then I realized it was really, really dumb. I re-wrote it. Twice. Then I realized I was a better artist than I was a writer. So I started a webcomic. I made about 10 pages, started over. Made 70 pages. Started over again. Changed web servers. Made 40 pages, scrapped 20 of them. Scrapped the prologue, re-wrote it. And now, I’ve scrapped the entire story one more time.
All this was done alongside several hiatuses, lapses in confidence, and existential crises. Oftentimes I wondered if this story was worth it. Sometimes, I still wonder. But I’ve put too much work into it to give up. I want to finish it.
This time, I’m going into it with a script more polished than it has ever been before, with the help of many of my dear friends and a few editors. Also, I’m working on hiring an artist to help me with the pages- this artist hasn’t been brought on board yet, so the pages you see now are all done by myself, but I’ll let you guys know when I make changes.
1. The entire story has been scrapped again. I’ll make the old pages available to access in the “Old Pages” section of “Media” shortly.
2. I’m changing to a Monday and Friday update schedule, which means you’ll see a new page uploaded on Monday, and a new page uploaded on Friday. I plan to get these scheduled to upload at the same time every day. I’m thinking 12:30 PM EST every day.
3. If all works out, I’ll have an artist helping me with future pages, and the quality of the comics should be much better.
1. I expect to finish the story in 3-4 years.
2. I plan to take a brief break after each chapter is completed. There are 15 chapters.
3. I will be adding Google AdSense. I hope you guys will find this won’t be too distracting and hopefully I can make a little bit of money off my hard work.
Thanks for sticking around, and I hope to deliver better art and a better story this time around.
Due to some difficulties in communicating with an artist I’m trying to hire, I don’t know if I’ll get the next update up on this Friday- but I’ll get something Monday, I’m certain.
Thanks for your help!
I’ve gotten a good deal of responses! Thank you everyone. I should be able to find someone right for the job now.
Hello everyone. As you may know, I’m starting my webcomic again on August 4. It’s an extremely difficult undertaking to do by myself, and I am wanting to make pages at a faster rate. This is why I would like to hire someone to help me with the artwork of my story. If you are an experienced artist…
Reblogging again for the afternoon crowd.
