    Status Report – 060120:

    Pictured above is my garden and it was set up this weekend. It was a lot of grunt work as we had to build the box (Friday) then fill it then plant in it (weekend), but work worth doing in our effort to make Axiom-man Central more self-sustaining. The garden has also now become a kind of getaway for me. I can go out there, inspect the plants, see if the soil needs watering, and just have time with nature.

    I’m a little sore today and a little tired after a busy weekend, but whatever.

    On today’s agenda is finishing up an episode of Fredrikus that is slated to air in a couple weeks, maybe three. I don’t know. I don’t have the interface in front of me at the moment. Read the current strips by going here.

    Also today, my friend and fellow cartoonist, Max West, launched his new webcomic. It’s called Poison Ivy Gulch and you can read the first strip right here.

    Have a good day.

    3) This weekend’s edition of The Canister X Transmission is mostly written and will go out Saturday.

    4) Today will mostly be spent making comics as part of our effort to do One Thing at a Time.

    We’re a little off today but nothing too bad. Namely just tired.

    This morning we uploaded a new episode of Fredrikus both to Patreon and to the main comic site. This episode will air in early June.

    I’m also giving thought to Project Rebuild and a loose timeline for it since 2020 as a whole screwed up the original schedule. I have a skeleton of a timeline and I think having a quasi-rigid/quasi-fluid structure to it is a good move at this juncture. I’ll try not to throw out any dates in case 2020 has more surprises but I will do my best on my end to be timely with the whole thing.

    On the agenda for today is making more comics and I think I know what next week is going to generally look like as well. In the meantime, need to finish off the current week.

    Anyway, here are some links to some terrific creators. You’d do well to check out their work.

    Greetings, reader.

    We are doing not too bad this morning. A little off but nothing that a few hours in the chair won’t cure.

    Part of what we’re doing here is retooling working methods yet again because, it seems, the weeks are taking on a kind of pattern where the beginning of the week goes one way, the latter half another.

    Part of the new paradigm, I suppose.

    Today’s main job is finishing a new episode of Fredrikus in terms of color. As the page stands right now, flat colors are all laid in. Modeling is the next step (whereby shading and such is added). Once this is complete, then we’ll get it ready to air for down the road.

    Not sure as yet what the other tasks will be. There are a few floating items that need tending to so might be one of those.

    Let’s see what the day brings.

    As you can see, it’s a chilly day here in the Great White North.

    Spring is never coming.

    Sipping coffee. Still waking up.

    We are doing computer work today because we have deadlines. Priority one is Web stuff.

    Book and Comic Production Season starts this week and will run for a while as we get to work bringing you some things we’ve been working on since I’ve been back.

    Time to log this entry then get to it.

    Status Report – 050720:

    Two nights ago I had a migraine episode, my first one in 9 months. In short, it knocked me down and kept me there until it was done. Yesterday, I took the day off to deal with what was basically a migraine hangover. We are back in the chair today and just worked on Part Two of my two-part article series on what to do if you feel your career in the arts is sinking. This article will air shortly on Patreon.

    That draft of the article was today’s main task.

    In terms of how I feel, much better today. Let’s see what’s next.

    Oh, here is some artwork to look at.

    Status Report – 050420:

    Today, we uploaded a new video to YouTube, worked on the cover to Fredrikus No. 1, and did some administration stuff.

    What you see in the pic above is part of Fredrikus No. 1, page 1.

    This strip will be in color.

    The cover is around 50% complete (color flats are down and modeling has begun).

    Hope you dig Fredrikus when he debuts, especially if life humor is your thing.

    Inks in process for the Fredrikus No. 1 cover

    Status Report – 050120:

    Today’s main goals are two:

    Prep tomorrow’s edition of The Canister X Transmission (complete)

    Ink the cover to Fredrikus No. 1 (in process)

    Secondary goals depend on when the inks are done.

    After this cover is inked, all ready pages of Fredrikus will be scanned into the computer to be colored and assembled into a comic book for both on-line and off-line enjoyment.

    Also note a new month starts today on Patreon. We have one more chapter of Gigantigator Death Machine to air and then it’ll be time for the new serial novel, which will be announced fairly soon. Just a buck gets you access to Gigantigator Death Machine and the new serial novel. That’s two books for one bean a month. Join the journey by going here. Hope to see you there.

    Lastly, and as always, feel free to drop me a note any time.

    Have a good weekend.

    Fredrikus panel in process

    Status Report – 043020:

    Welcome to Thursday, where we’ve been up since early due to a headache and an upset stomach. However, we are in the chair anyway because there are only so many word games from his pocket computer a guy can take.

    Not sure what the day is going to look like. I think Plan A is to just work and see how long I last.

    What you see above is a panel from Fredrikus, with the lettering in process. This is the last page I need to finish lettering before loading the current batch of strips into the computer for the next phase.

    Door’s open for any questions.

    Status Report – 042820:

    Busy working on Fredrikus. We’re lettering right now. Initially, I wasn’t sure how I was going to letter the thing then, after some deliberation, decided it’ll be done by hand, so we’re going over the pages and adding the words.

    All is still on track for a timely release.

    I also shot a new YouTube video this morning, which will air soon enough.

    And, generally speaking, I’m having a pretty good day today so I’ll take the win.

    As always, drop me a note if you have any questions.
