    Status Report – 052120:

    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.

    Supply pick-up today so we’ll be popping in and out of the studio as we take care of things at the homestead.

    The main work goal for today, however, is working on Fredrikus. I have a timeframe in mind and would like to achieve it.

    I also uploaded a new video to YouTube this morning that showcases my Superman metal lunch box collection. Please go here to check it out. Please also advise if there is any trouble with the video because YouTube was acting up today.

    And, as usual, feel free to drop me a note at any time.

    Junior Penciled and Inked

    Status Report – 042620:

    Just working and making comics. Who you see above is part of the Fredrikus storyline and more about this character will be revealed when the strip airs.

    This week’s comic-making schedule is roughly mapped out and, so far, we are on track for a timely release.

    We’re also soon going to be entering a production era here at Axiom-man Central. Lots of work is more or less ready to start going through the production machine, with the ultimate end game being to get these things into your hands.

    Almost there.

    And, as always, my door is open for any questions.

    Status Report – 042320:

    We’re working on a schedule shift here where I start my day a little bit later because I find I function better after the mid-morning hours. However, I also was just having coffee and decided to upload the second-to-last chapter of Gigantigator Death Machine to Patreon so my readers there got this week’s update bright and early. If you’re not reading Gigantigator Death Machine, please do. One more chapter to go and the book is done. Once complete, it will remain on Patreon while we start up the second serial novel in a few weeks.

    The plan for the day is to make comics. We’re gaining a ton of ground on Fredrikus. While the drawing is going on, so are other behind-the-scenes items so that come launch, all the necessary ducks are in a row.


    Now, back to coffee.
