Moving update

Just a quick update accompanied by a quick doodle. We’re all settling into our new home nicely. My studio is only partially set up at this point though. We’re having window coverings installed tomorrow, and until that is done, I have to keep my desks clear from the window. I’ll be aiming to have a fully functioning studio by the end of next week. 

Until then, please stand by.

Moving day

Just a super quick doodle. For those of you that don't know, or forgot, or just don't give a damn, my family and I are moving. In fact, today is the official moving day! We won't have internet access for a couple of days, and it's going to take me a little while to set up the new studio space (which will only happen once the rest of the house is in order). Plus, we need to establish new routines with our boys. So, I won't be posting anything until we're all settled in. 

Stay tuned.

Feeling appreciative

This post is dedicated to Jim Horwitz, creator of the comic strip Watson. Jim contacted me yesterday to eagerly and generously discuss an idea he had for my art. These duck and cube characters were of particular interest to him (which you might recognize from the drawing I posted yesterday). 

Jim, your enthusiasm was infectious. The incredibly detailed concept that you outlined was brilliant, fun, and completely unique. You took time out of your day to openly share all of this with me, which means so much considering that we don’t even know each other. 


Thank you very much, Jim. I want you to know that I really appreciate it.

Stream of consciousness doodle

Sometimes it's fun to just turn the brain off and draw without thinking.

The same, but different

For those of you that haven't been paying attention, last week I introduced you all to Drowsy Doug. The lame idea that I had floating around in my head was that Drowsy Doug would always have plans to do something, but the running gag would be that he falls asleep in the last panel of every strip without actually having accomplished anything at all. 

In an act of sheer desperation brought on by mind numbing sleep deprivation, I thought it would be amusing if the drawings never actually changed in the strip. The running gag would obviously remain the same as well. The only difference would be the dialogue. 

So what you see here is exactly the same strip that I posted last week, but different, kind of.

He speaks robot

I'm sure you'll all agree that the robot does make some valid points.

Drowsy Doug

I've had this idea in my head for awhile about a comic where the main character (Drowsy Doug) always has plans to do something, but the running gag is that he falls asleep on the last panel of every strip without actually having accomplished anything.

A crumby pun


In my defence, I drew this at 2:00 in the morning while in a state of insomnia induced delirium. Let me tell you, imagining two slices of bread having this conversation seemed ridiculously amusing to me at the time.

Gary

Yesterday I mentioned that I will soon be launching a comic strip, and I suggested that the characters would likely be potatoes. However, after posting that remark yesterday morning, I found myself thinking about a certain cube by the name of Gary. I literally thought about him all day. As ridiculous as this may sound, I felt as if I was abandoning him. I've become rather attached to the little square fella.

The strip itself, at this point, isn't built around specific characters. The gags that I have written will work whether Gary is delivering the lines, or a potato, or a unicorn with a beard. 

What I discovered today, as I was organizing my character sketches, is that Gary somehow resonated with me more than all the others. 

So, needless to say, I have reconsidered my decision. 

You will all be seeing much more of Gary in the near future.

Changes

I have a couple of new newsworthy news items to pass along from Jason Curtis World Headquarters. 


In the coming weeks, my family and I will be moving. Over the years we have lived in many different homes, in different cities, but now it’s time to settle into our forever home and plant some roots.

Seeing as we have moved so many times, the act of packing up a house (and then unpacking it on the other end) doesn’t even phase me anymore. With that said, it’s a very time consuming process and as a result, I won’t be posting drawings on a regular basis.  

Once Jason Curtis World Headquarters has been successfully relocated and is operational again, I will be launching a comic. I have been working tirelessly behind the scenes and it’s almost ready to see the light of day. When it does launch, I will be posting it a minimum of three times per week. If I’m feeling particularly brave, I may throw caution to the wind and commit to a schedule of five times per week. 

I have several sets of characters that I have been developing. It’s been like an audition process. I think the winners may very well be these guys. Yes, they’re potatoes. 

The final change will be my actual workflow. I have been drawing entirely on my iPad Pro for over a year now. I will continue to use it for creating digital roughs, but the inking will be done traditionally. I will have more to say about this in a future post. 

That is all for now. Carry on.
