Blythe vs. the Werewolf Launch!

Blythe vs. the Werewolf has officially launched today! You can start reading here. The story will update in five parts following the prologue, with a projected schedule of the last Saturday of every other month. So, barring any major issues, you can expect the next update on Saturday, May 28th. I’m really excited to finally release this little story that’s been bouncing around my head for years out into the world.

BvtW update: Postponed Launch

Just a quick update, but I’ve decided to postpone the launch date for Blythe vs. the Werewolf from the 5th of March to the 26th of March. The illustrations are taking me far longer than I had anticipated, and I still have revisions to do for Part 2 so I can get those illustrations started. I may or may not have to postpone further depending on time, energy, and my ability to speed up my… Read more BvtW update: Postponed Launch

Running up that revision hill

Revision is hard. I always forget just how hard until I dive into it. The good news is, I’m making headway on Blythe vs. the Werewolf! I’m hoping to post the first installment in January, though the exact date is TBD. I’m trucking along with revisions and thumbnail sketches, but I’m unsure on how long it’ll all take to get everything to a presentable level. Although I’ve (mostly) gotten over the fear of things Not… Read more Running up that revision hill

State of the Draft: Blythe vs. the Werewolf

Back in June, I wrote about my decision to change Blythe vs. the Werewolf’s format. It took longer than intended, but I’ve finished converting the comic script into a prose draft. And I’ve been sitting on it for over two weeks now. The original plan was to have BvtW ready to post by Halloween, but that’s unfortunately not going to happen. Not if I want to put out something that’s actually readable. Between the post-draft… Read more State of the Draft: Blythe vs. the Werewolf

On changing format

What do I do when I realize I’m having a hard time keeping up with blog posts? Do I accept that I’m just not good at blogging and try something else, or do I force myself to keep up with it? I’m doing this mainly for me, so I shouldn’t be afraid to be bad at it, right? I have a similar struggle when it comes to drawing, and especially when it comes to comic… Read more On changing format

Staying on Track

Something I struggle with is maintaining a consistent workflow on my personal projects. If there’s a real-world consequence for me missing a deadline, that’s a great motivator for me! Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to convince my brain to apply that to my comics and writing. At least not when I’m still in the more nebulous planning and drafting stages. Sure, I’ve given myself the vague goal of “Finish something to the point that it’s… Read more Staying on Track

Spooky Story Skeletons

It’s April, which means it’s a Camp NaNoWriMo month! While I’m not officially participating in Camp NaNo this month, I’m still using April to draft the Blythe vs. the Werewolf script. Before diving into the draft, I wanted to get some prep work done. The hope is that if I’m well prepared, I won’t spend the entire comic-making process floundering. Since it’s a visual medium, I want to get the design elements—like character and setting… Read more Spooky Story Skeletons

Project Spotlight: Blythe vs. the Werewolf

Last post, I shared some sketches for Blythe vs. the Werewolf, the short standalone comic I’ll be working on between now and October. I’ll definitely have more sketches of werewolf and character designs in upcoming posts. This week, though, I want to go a bit more into the project itself. The titular character, Blythe Bonfils, is a wizard who takes on odd jobs of the magical variety. The comic takes place ten to fifteen years… Read more Project Spotlight: Blythe vs. the Werewolf

Werewolves on the brain

Psst! Hey, you! Ya like werewolves? I sure hope so! I’ve been thinking a lot about werewolves lately, and there’s a reason for that! Last post, I mentioned that I’m taking a break from work on Strange Company to focus on a short comic. It’s called Blythe vs. the Werewolf, and it features—you guessed it—at least one werewolf. The titular character of BvtW plays a big role in Strange Company. It takes place over a… Read more Werewolves on the brain
