I’ve always drawn pictures, comics, stick figure wars, heinous prepubescent stuff, sketch portraits, etc. I also write and build websites like this one. So when I stopped traveling, I wondered how I would be able to apply my quirky skill set; I decided to create a webcomic.
I published my first comic to ThingsInSquares.com on March 27th, 2014. Since then, I’ve attracted followers across a number of tertiary websites.
New comics go up Tuesdays and Thursdays, but I think about this project every day. I’ve spent countless hours trying to figure out how best to start and promote a webcomic; I’m bursting with advice.
I started this blog to describe my attempts in this industry.
I hope to post articles about troubleshooting, task management, website design, social media management, drawing techniques, software, SEO, outreach, community, publishing, and whatever else comes to mind. Although this is a humor website, I expect this blog to be frank and earnest. It is meant for other webcomic artist. Perhaps with time, I’ll expand its scope.
I make daily gag comics, meaning they are not interdependent. Webcomic is a blanket term to describe diverse art and writing styles. So I feel nervous calling this a “Webcomic blog”. Still, I think these articles may prove useful to anyone just getting started, and with time, perhaps even to experienced webcomic creators.
It’s January 15th, 2015, and I’m still a novice.
Come back and read some more–I’ll try to publish regularly, but I won’t let this become a content mill–the articles you find here will be meaty and full of intent. It has been nearly a year since I started, so the first articles I publish will be retrospective.
