I’ve been quiet as of late. I stopped by to check in and saw that I hadn’t posted in a while and shame on me. I hadn’t meant to neglect you but you see I’ve been writing and laying out issue two of Ella Mental. It’s rather fun and I lose track of time. Writing a comic – for me anyway – is like the ending of every Star Wars film. There are a few story arcs happening at once and you have to fit them all tidy like into a single issue without forcing it down the readers throat. It’s not as easy as it should be. Sometimes it downright frightening. Along with writing I also plot page layout as I go. Then, when everything is written and scribble on the pages, I can then go back and lay down some pencils, read the book, and then start to complete it.
In other news, I’ve submitted Ella Mental Issue #1 to Comixology’s Indy Submit program and I am awaiting word on how that’s going. Hopefully it passes inspection. If so you all will be able to get the issue on their app either for iPhone iPad, or any android device. I’ve set the price at .99 cents – not bad for a new title I thought – as I wanted to keep it cheap, cheap and make it more accessible to everyone who loves the art form. When it comes down to it, like most artists, it isn’t about the money. It’s about creating. I think the book is top notch and I hope you will as well.
Keep pressing on, talented ones. Eyes wide.
