This week marks the 4th anniversary of Gremlin World as a web comic! Though I am very proud of this accomplishment, I know that as an author and artist there are still many ways for me to grow and give my readers a greater presentation. I am doing my best to help you enjoy GW even more! I thank everyone who has followed the adventures of Pai and co. from the bottom of my heart, and hope you will look forward to the future of GW!!
Well, after weeks of trepidation, I have finally brought my WACOM BAMBOO out of it's box and experimented with it a little... and it is freakin' awesome! While my tablet sketches aren't as clean as my usual art (yet), I found it pretty easy to draw well with and I have a feeling my storyboarding time is going to be cut down by a pretty good percentage. I'm going to be trying to finish two animatics this week, one is a remake of an older project, the other is a music video for... well, it's GW related, and that's all I'm going to say.
Well, those of you who are following my manga-esque web comic, GREMLIN WORLD may not have really noticed a lapse in content, but Part I of Gremlin World ended with Chapter 14, and so the world and primary characters have now all been fairly fleshed out. Now comes the fun stuff.
Part II of GREMLIN WORLD will have tons more action, a better worked out storyline, better art, and some great new (and varied) supporting cast members and villains! Starting with World 16, titled SIDE B, Part II will open with a bit of a recap on the GW world and reintroduce the characters to new readers. All the art is new and features the updated designs on the regular cast, whom all appear.
GREMLIN WORLD World 16 will begin its online run on Monday, May 5th, and as the entire chapter is already finished should run smoothly into World 17. Please be sure to stop by the GREMLIN WORLD site and check it out!
Since graduating from the Art Institute, I have little substantial work on my hands save Nyamo, Gremlin World and the assignments from my current internship. Sounds boring, but surprisingly every day has been quite busy. I wake up at 9 and go to bed at 1, I do the dishes at home, play with my dog, Heidi, eat lunch with my friends, and find a few minutes to check up on what's going on with my hobbies. Somewhere in-between these things all my time is ticked away, a few minutes here, an hour there... it is tragic but enlightening.
And time is not the only thing being eaten away, my finances are also approaching their last legs. I need to find a job soon and say good-bye to the security and freedom of student life. I have the talent, and I have the time to do something great- if only I don't give in to the slowly growing sense of dread that comes with being bankrupt.
