This page is an odd one for a number of reasons; I somehow ended up landing a fart joke alongside a deeply unpleasant revelation about Burkhard.

Additionally, this is also the first fully digital page I’ve uploaded. I went with the change as I felt it hasn’t really affected the general style, rather just making the art sharper and speeding up production. I’ll be interested to hear other people’s thoughts on this mind…

It’s been a long time… Scratch that, it’s been a ridiculously long time, but I don’t really want to waffle about the details. Instead, I’d rather just get back to posting comic updates for Apothecary Supreme on a semi-regular basis.

In summary, I’ve been going through a professional transition which recently cumulated in me changing jobs from a fairly rote 9-to-5 over to a more flexible arrangement. The main positive of this is that I should have substantially more time to finish comic stuff and get more serious about this.

Fortunately, I do have a few pages ready which I worked on – slowly – and have held back until I could properly commit again. So here goes.

I’ve also transitioned to digital as my Wacom has quickly become a major part of my working life.

After much indecision I realised that using the tools at my disposal fully was the best way to speed things along without compromising results. More on this when I upload the transition page in question, hopefully it won’t be too jarring!

More next Sunday anyhow :)


Building Up to Updates

November 26, 2017

Been very quiet, but also very busy.

I’ve been steadily working on Issue 2 stuff for Apothecary Supreme, the plan being to build up an actual backlog rather than updating page-to-page. When I show pages again I plan to have consistent updates, likely around Christmas.

To anyone who is following, thank you for your patience! Once I get stuff out of the gate again it should be at consistent pace =)

More Apothecary Supreme concepts

September 9, 2017
A few more new characters and monsters – I’ll let you guess which is which – showing up in the next Apothecary supreme issue.
 
I’ve been working on planning for a while now, in terms of both visuals and story for Issue 2. I feel like there’s a LOT more I could do in this regard but it may well be at the expense of momentum. Past experience has taught me that it is possible to overplan, with a great deal of pre-production content becoming irrelevant anyway and damaging motivation as production ends up feeling creatively restrictive.
 
In a nutshell; time to get started proper.

My, my I’ve been embarrassing infrequent lately! I’d say it was all work but I’d be lying if I didn’t admit to a little slacking… The conclusion is tantalisingly close now though so I’ll be sure to redouble my efforts!
