Still working...

I'm still working on the auto-bio comic. I've re-drawn everything I did before, but there's nothing I feel comfortable sharing at this point. I learnd my lesson last time and am going to wait until it's 99.9% done before I start posting/promoting it again.

In the mean time... Here's single page comic I did for a free Nagoya based magazine, RAN. Pick it up now if you live in the Nagoya area.

page 39


I think this will be the last page for a while. I’ve actually got over a hundred pages plotted out like this but they don’t seem to be catching on.

I can think of a couple of reasons why. First, I probably need to be more progressive in my promotion of this work. Just doing it isn’t enough. I need to tell people about it and make them aware that it exists. Like the artist cliché I hate talking about myself (but I’m doing an auto-bio manga and blogging about it so on some levels this isn’t true). Actually, when I’m really honest with myself I have to admit I don’t have confidence in the work yet. This brings me to the second reason why I think this work might not be catching on.

The second reason is I’m taking too many short cuts with the art. I’ve taken some criticism for duplicating panels and using the font Comics-sans MS on some message boards. I thought this would save me time (and it has), but I feel it’s also made it easy for people to dismiss this work all together.

I need to address these issues and get this work up to a more “professional level” before I start showing pages again. At that time I will hopefully have the confidence to more aggressively promote myself and this work. We’ll see what happens.

とりあえず、これが最後のページです。実は100ページまで書いてありますが、今まで書いたものがなかなか盛り上がらないみたいですね。

なぜかというと、二つの理由があると思います。

まずはもっと積極的に宣伝しないといけないかもしれません。でも、ほんとのことを言うとこの作品を見ると宣伝する自身が消えてしまいます。

二番目の理由というのは他のメッセージボードなどで、この漫画は全く同じコマを使ったりしているから、批判されました。時間を節約したかったので色々、近道を通ったのですが、その代わりこの漫画が見逃しやすくなるみたいです。

だから、これらの過ちをやり直して、この漫画が本格的な程度まで見せません。もちろん、自信がある作品がつくたら、ここで見せますそして、ちゃんと宣伝します。

宜しくお願いします。
