Greetings, friends. My name is Max West and I am the creator of Sunnyville Stories. What is Sunnyville Stories, you ask? It’s an independent comics series starring anthropomorphic animals living in a small utopian village. I guess if you’re looking for a specific genre that this could be placed in, the term “slice of life” could be used.
So what exactly is Sunnyville? Sunnyville is a small town somewhere out there in the world. It’s quite remote; it’s surrounded by wilderness in least a thirty-mile radius and actually more. Being quite remote has had an interesting effect on this town. Time seems to stand still here. Rather than keep up with the ever-changing fashions of the contemporary world, the inhabitants of Sunnyville dress very traditionally. Males wear suits and hats while females (adult and juvenile) wear skirts and dresses. Oh, they do keep up technologically. Sunnyville has cars, television, cell phones, and the Internet. But the inhabitants tend to be more concerned with the happenings of their little universe as opposed to what‘s going on in the outside world. It is here that our story unfolds.
As for the comic itself, it revolves around two stars – Rusty Duncan and Samantha “Sam” Macgregor. Rusty is a teenage cat who has moved to Sunnyville from a big city. Finding it hard to adjust to this radically different environment, he soon meets local girl Sam Macgregor. Sam’s lived in Sunnyville all her life and befriends Rusty. The two will have many adventures in and around Sunnyville.
That’s it in a nutshell. I intend to post up artwork here that you won’t see anywhere else and as time goes on, I’ll discuss more about the characters, talk about how this comic came about, and even show some of the magic that I work in my comics. Be sure to check back here every Wednesday for updates. There’s also an RSS feed and don’t forget that you can subscribe via email for blog updates.
So on behalf of myself and the denizens of Sunnyville, I bid you welcome to my web log. May you enjoy your stay and enrich yourselves.
