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.

I wanted to post the entire 7-page spread that I worked on last year. I submitted this to Image Comics last year, unfortunately it will never be published, but they are cool pages anyway. Enjoy!

I'm Back

After a very, very long break -- I'm back to blogging.

Let me catch you all up on what has happened with me and writing:

An start-up production company contacted me about writing a series of video shorts for a web series. It sounded like a lot of fun, so I got working on the concept and the first episode -- I really liked where it was going, but my contact was looking for something else, so long story short, the project went belly-up. If anyone wants to make the web series "Zeet's Waffle Cart" have I got the script for you!

I like the idea of writing for video/film so I decided to try my hand at writing a screenplay. Things were going really well, but then reality set in. If I was ever going to make this movie, I would need to write it as cheaply as possible. I never thought that would be a big deal, but it really put some severe restrictions on the story, and my writing process.

The thought keeps coming back to me, that this story would work so much better as a graphic novel. So I've been working on converting the original story to a comic script -- and it is awesome! I haven't been this excited about writing in a very long time. And that is saying something.

I am now presented with another problem -- how am I going to get a decent artist to draw this book?

Well, I have an innovative scheme. I'll tell you about it in my next post --

In the meantime, take 3 minutes and review my books on Amazon -- All for Owen and The Cause
and if you haven't read them yet, they are both only .99 cents on Amazon. Spread the word, because I am going to need your help to get this thing published.
