Reflecting on a Year of Making Comics

How it’s been going and my aspirations for the next year, plus a collection of my art from the first year

I started making comics seriously a year ago in September 2017. It was an intentional change from exploring the world of filmmaking with the hopes of being able to tell visual stories entirely on my own. I can’t believe that a year has flown by. I’ve been enjoying the process of making comics and growing as an artist. It’s been slow going at times but ultimately rewarding.

Lavender, My First 24-Hour Comic

My experiences and the outcome of attempting to make 24 pages of comics in 24 hours

On Friday and Saturday I participated in my first 24-Hour Comic Challenge where I made 24 pages of comics in 24 hours. It was a heck of a challenge, and I’m happy to share that I successfully completed it!

The result of the challenge is an action fantasy comic called Lavender, which can be read free online.

I believe there’s value in reflecting on a project or period of time to see what worked, what didn’t, and what can be done better the next time around.

The First Day Retrospective

Reflection on The First Day and my experience writing it.

Last week I released The First Day, my first piece of fiction that I have shared publicly. It is also my first work of interactive fiction (a.k.a. choose your own adventure story). Both had me feeling excited and nervous. Since releasing it, I feel proud about The First Day and happy with how it turned out.
