Promoting.
by Draginbeard

Howdy folks,

I hope everyone had a good weekend.

So I've been pretty busy working on pages 23 and 24, then I finally got busy setting up Facebook and twitter for the comic. I still need to look into tumbler, but it's time to start promoting the strip a little bit. Things go full color in a couple weeks and it really does look pretty good.

For once, I'm really pretty happy with my art. I keep working at it, and it is shaping up pretty well.

The one thing I didn't want to do was put up the vortex shot of Jolly, I was kind of hoping to save that for a bit, but then I am working on a holiday page which I hope will make up for this spoiler. I'm also thinking of doing that shot in color so when it does hit the site, it will be a touch different than what's been shown. The vortex shot came out so well I want to start using it for forum avatars and maybe even have it blown up into a poster size for when I go to con.

Con and me are still a couple years off, but I really want to sit con at least once. I'm looking at 2014 in phoenix for a table on Friday and Saturday. Thursday and Sunday I want to walk around and see everything.  Man, look at me day dreaming already!

I have to say though, I really love doing this comic! Even if only a few of my friends read it, I am pretty amazed at how satisfying the work is. Yeah, it's a lot more than I thought is was going to be, but a chunk of that is in the learning curve I'm surfing, but still, it is just freaking awesome to be doing the thing I've wanted to do since I was too young to read.

Ok, got a busy day tomorrow, and still have lots of work to finish up before Fridays update.

Everyone have a great week and I will catch you next update!!
