    Always flirted with the idea since i was young practicing my drawign skills by pulling ideas and poses out of the panels of my ever increasing stack of comic books.

    Got the drawing skills, i would like to think most days, and some interesting character ideas, but i'm a little rough on the writing/story side of things.

    Right here.

    ::raises hand::

    I poke into PnP every now and then (when I have internet at home...) and have been sucking up every written piece I have access to about the process and whatnot. I'll likely end up writing and drawing, so I have to teach myself how to draw. It's pretty slow going. But even if I get one thing properly published by an actual publisher I'll be happy. I don't expect I'll ever make money at it. Who would honestly pay me for my work? I know I wouldn't.

    Here as well.

    I've done some stuff in the past, writing for online RPGs my friends and I would make up for fun.

    Yes, even you people hiding in the dark who don't usually post.

    I guess you're referring to me...

    Yes, I want to make comics. I've written a few scripts, and right now an artist is illustrating a 48-page oneshot for me. I love the 48-page format, and I would love to hold one of those books with my name on it.

    I'll "publish" it through print-on-demand, and I'll send it to any publisher that might be interested. It doesn't matter if they're not: I've created a book and will do so as long as I can afford it. And yes, I am taking advantage of the weak dollar at the moment, with my hard earned Norwegian kroner.

    Yeah, I've been working on what's going to become a webcomic. I've just had the idea rolling around in my head for a couple of weeks now. I've got a story outline laid out that could keep it going for at least a year. I just have to motivate myself into drawing the damn thing. I've got one strip drawn, and working on another. I figure if I can finish a months' worth (going on a Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule) finished, then I'll get to publishing it online.

    I used to write 'em. Had two artists at two different times. Both had the projects fall to the back burner and then right off the damn range. Something about 'paying work' for 'real jobs', whatever that might mean.

    Would love to again.

    I've written and published some creator owned stuff but things have stalled out on my current book.
    • CommentTimeAug 26th 2008
    Yes, I have two projects that I'm working on currently when I can (stupid real job!). One is simply in the scripting phase and it really needs to be fleshed out, but that's okay, I see it as something a little more than what my talents are capable of at the moment. The other is what I'm really working on and as of yet has an unspecified length. Am working on the character designs and basic "look" of the book. Very simple style which will be black and white and I hope when I'm done to self-publish. I see it being done in probably a year or two.

    *waves* I want to make comics! I'm an artist, interested in going mainly down the indie/alternative route (as my art is more strip-booky/indie I guess), but to be honest, drawing anything for a living seems like heaven to me. But yeah, mainly people who would be interested in doing something new/interesting with the format.

    Written a large backlog of stuff that's currently being drawn (or so the artist tells me) but haven't actually written any new comics for a couple of years. I'm earning more writing inane press releases and business copy than I could probably make at the arse end of the comics industry, so I'm forgetting about it as a career, although, as it's something I really enjoyed doing, I'm definitely going to get back to it at some point.

    I wrote some short stories once that I thought might be adaptable. But I'm not specifically interested in comics, just writing in many forms.

    The "Aspiring" part of this is a little complex for me.

    Strictly speaking I've made mini-comics in the past, and make comics (of the psuedo newspaper-format webcomic variety) at the moment, but long-form story Comics are where I'd really like to go in the future.

    Or really anything with panels. That'd be nice.
    • CommentTimeAug 26th 2008
    I'm working on more. You'll hear it here first. With luck — some of them won't look like cleaned up "underground" books.

    I'm hoping to eventually cast off the silicon yoke of web development and move over to comic writing.

    I keep getting projects to the finished script stage, only to have the artist get eaten by wild boars or vagina dentatas or something.

    Current projects:
    The Pineapple Primary - 48pp book about the 1928 Republican primary election in Chicago, which was the most violent electoral period in the nation's history. Over 100 bombs went off in a 9 month period and no one was ever arrested. Plan on printing a run of 500.
    Night Shift - A darkly humorous, hand screen printed, single page, tabloid-sized stories about the modern life of the Vampire. We're doing 20 shorts, printing up 10 hand bound collections, 30 more individual prints from each comic to sell/frame and plan on releasing the whole thing at an art show.
    On Aerite Wings - A revisionist history piece involving airships. Don't call it steampunk. There is no steam. Plan on releasing this in weekly "scenes" online, and printing the finished 96pp books.

    I want to write comics. Unfortunately, my artists has a full-time job with a game design company so he only has time to work on the comic a couple of times a month.

    We're up to 3 fully drawn and scripted pages but it'll be a long while before we're both ready to go public with it.

    *Waves hand*

    About to release my first 24 page comic. It's done and it's been a very enlightening experiment; just taking my time to finish the web site and launch it properly.

    I wish I could draw comics, though.


    You're not the only one. I'm from Barcelona.
