Sweetcast and Comics

Hello! You guessed it, I'm Clint with Sweetcast and this is my blog. I've been posting my creative musings here on-and-off for years. You can see my many failures and progress over time. I don't post on this blog very often, so if you want the latest and greatest with me, it's best to follow me on Twitter or subscribe to my YouTube channel, Sweetcast.

Comic Script

I wrote this a couple years ago for a comic project. Making dinosaurs and cowboys live in the same world. Yeah, pretty awesome I know. You know how life gets in the way, so this project will not be made, but rather than let it decay on my hard drive, I thought this is a good place to post it.

The story takes place in the American west. It is an American fantasy. Fictional creatures, cowboys, action, and American Indian lore. And yes, the main protagonist would ride a t-rex to get redemption. I wrote several versions of this pilot issue, but this one was my favorite.

There is no art, so put your artist cap on and imagine how you would draw this.

Path of Least Resistance

It feels like I have so many projects in "the works" and yet I haven't had much progress with publishing. My solution is to take control and work on another project myself. But the only way I'm going to publish a comic myself is to improve my drawing. I decided that drawing better would open so many more doors for me, so I had to re frame my thinking and give it another try.

I don't want to say too much about this project, but I am working on a comic. I'm in the early development stage, but I do have something to show for it.

This is a character turnaround for one of the main characters. And there are more of these to come.

New Project

The past few weeks have felt like marathon writing. I'm please to say that I've joined forces with the amazing Austin Bachelor to create an ongoing comic series. I'm so excited about this story, and eager to show the world what we can do, but for now I'm scripting.

I can't responsibly say much about it at this point, but it involves dinosaurs, cowboys and a lot of action - and some amazing storytelling if I have anything to say about it.

What I don't have yet is a great title, but that will come soon.

Here are a couple character sketches that Austin has cooked up.

Short Comics

I am starting to understand how it feels to spin plates on sticks.

I have several projects in the works at the moment. I don't want to say too much at this point, because I don't know where it is all going, but the reason I am able to have a finger in so many pots, is the short story... Or short comic to be more precise.

I have 4 stories that I'm actively writing in various stages. Only one is a long form comic, the others are all short stories.

This is a drastically different approach for me, but so far it seems to be paying off.

I know this is all super cryptic, but hopefully I will have something to show the world soon.
