Happy New Year!
Well I spent a good amount of time trying to draw Page 26 of “Mervin the Monster.” The page was already a week late. So I finished it the other day and scheduled it to post this Friday (Jan 23).
But…looking it over with a more critical eye, I decided the page wasn’t very good at all. Not at all. It doesn’t happen often but I do sometimes get an entire page done, from beginning to end, and then decide, nope this sucks.
So I’ve gone back to the old drawing board and started working on the page again. I doubt it will be done by this Friday but I’ll give it a try. Apologies in advance if I fail.
How about some good news? Well for maybe some of you this may prove good news.
You know that for over a year I’ve been seriously thinking about making the comic “PG-13″ or “softcore”–as opposed to hardcore and explicit as it has been. By that I mean I would depict all the sex and nudity as happening off screen. I’ve already written a bunch of blog posts and Deviant Art journal entries explaining why so I won’t go into that here. Don’t get me started.
Anyway, after months and months of debate, I’ve decided not to go that route. There will still be nudity, boobs, peckers and butts and on screen intermingling of genitals. I’ve got more to say on that topic but this post is getting a bit long and I’m starting to hear that music they begin to play at award ceremonies when they want you to wrap it up. So I’m wrapping it up, already. Later.
