Buy our stuff.

This is a good chance to get your last-minute gift shopping out-of-the-way–buy all kinds of fun stuff from local artists. I’ll have watercolor sketch cards and postcards for sale, along with mini-comics. I’ll be selling sketches as well (I’ll even add watercolor for extra).

If you want some else, you can always check out my merchandise for sale online (shirts, tote bags, prints, etc).

I whipped up a comic about the teaser trailer for the new Star Wars movie. Fun stuff, can’t wait.

Blog PostBehind the Scenes: Being Topical

On why I decided to whip up a topical comic at the last-minute, even though I already had one ready to go for last Monday.

Blog PostThankful For

My own run down of what I am thankful for this year.

Looking for unique Christmas/other holiday gifts? I sell original art y’know.

Updates. You heard me, updates. 

Specifically, website updates. Even more specifically, to clattertron.com. I overhauled the look: changed the colors, tweaked the sidebar contents, and changed some of my image elements.

Adding color was a long time coming. I wanted to do something to shake up the look of Clattertron, and I felt a bit of color was the way to go (for now). I tweaked the header image, removing the eye patch/face logo (for now) added a color No Filter Fox. I did away with the ‘video game’ text on the header, the blog, and my comic navigation buttons.

How? I traced the text in Clip Studio Paint on my Surface. I like the handwritten touch it added, which I felt fit the site a bit better. I will likely tweak some more stuff soon. I can’t decided if I like something until I see it up on the website a few times.

Other news: I added a new design to my Society6 store. Coffee lovers, take note.

October felt like it lasted forever (5ever?) and yet November seems like it is blowing by like a train. Which is fine, really. The sooner we’re clear of Winter, the better. Also, I love Thanksgiving. Yummy.

I chatted with Paul and Chris of the Montreal Sauce Podcast last Thursday evening. I think it will be published soon, but here is my first appearance again. We chatted about many things, but spent a lot of time discussing my comic making process now that I’m all digital.

The short version is, I try to do specific tasks on specific days. Only worry about one thing at a time. For example, on Mondays I write as many comics as I can. I try for at least two, but really shoot for three or four. Since I’m once a week, I need to pay attention when the comic will run, so I don’t miss a chance for a holiday related comic or the like.

I will let y’all know once the podcast episode is online.

A new month!

Inktober is over and I finished all 31 daily drawings. I enjoyed the challenge, although I’m not sure if I will do it again next year. We shall see though. I didn’t mind the drawing part, but the posting each to my website everyday became a bit of a chore by the end. Drawing daily for Inktober did make me think about increasing my comic output. I’m not ready yet, although I am already working on comics for December (at least the writing/lettering part).

I might try to push myself to publish two comics a week in the new year. Maybe more. Daily would be great, and ideal, but I’m not quite there yet–but getting used to working digitally will help with such a goal.

For now, I’m working on building up a buffer, which will come in handy during the upcoming holidays.
