Moving Along

I’m almost done working on my personal website.  For the most part, all that’s left is finishing touches and fixing whatever bugs I see.  So far, I’m liking how it’s coming along and the (near)finished product is pretty close to how I originally envisioned it.  The site will showcase personal work, commissioned work, and rough drafts/random drawings that I’ve done.

Meanwhile, I’m going back and re-editing the script for the pilot episode of the motion comic I want to work on.  Yes, I said motion comic.  I decided the cartoon idea would be too labor intensive and it would work better for everyone involved if the cartoon was repurposed as a motion comic.  So I’m editing the script with that in mind and have started work scripting out the next two episodes, should we ever get to the point of producing them.  Seeing the illustrator’s work has me jazzed about the project, so I hope we can make it a reality.

Well, that’s all for now.  Expect a link to my website soon.  And when you go there and look around, please try and be kind — it’s my first time making a website.

The First Post

This is the first post for what will be my work blog.  I’m a Graphic Designer and writer, and I will use this blog to inform those who wish to know what I’m up to artistically.  (Hi, mom and dad!)

Right now, I’m working on my website to showcase my art samples.  It’s coming along well, with most of the design work done.  Some coding and portfolio sample resizing is left, which doesn’t sound like much, but it’s more than I care to think about.  When the website’s done, I will link to it from this site.

I’m also currently writing a cartoon which I hope to turn into a web series.  I’ve already written one script and have ideas for several other potential episodes.  I feel that the characters are strong, if a little clichéd, but these are animated shorts we’re talking about — you can only get so complex in a short amount of time.  (You try writing a three-act, sci-fi action comedy that’s only five to ten minutes long.)  At the very least, there’s room for the characters to grow over the series and given the challenges in some of the episodes that I have planned, they will definitely become more multi-dimensional.

One of my friends is helping with the animation and thanks to another friend, there is now a theme song to animate to.  Expect some art samples and advancements on this project in the future, but for now, just know that it’s in the works.

Well, that’s all there is for this post.  Until the next post, see you later!  (Bye, mom and dad!)
