Welcome back! As I said, from now until the end of the story, I will share a page each day of the 24 hour comic I did with Dominic & Claire. This is the first official comic together. Plus, I’ll give my commentary with each page.
So without further ado, let’s get this show on the road! Continue reading
Hello, everyone! The Christmas break for the blog has ended and now it’s back to business.
So what can all of you expect for 2019? Comics planned for this year are Sunnyville Stories #18, Sunnyville Stories #19 and a print comic for my webcomic characters Tiffany & Corey. I have not yet decided on the start date for laying out the pages to Sunnyville #18; the script needs some minor revisions and a review before we get started. There’s also business items like taxes to deal with.
Tiffany & Corey’s comic book will be somewhat of a challenge; as that is more of a gag work as opposed to the more “artistic” Sunnyville, I will concentrate more on shorter vignettes involving humor. Of course, the comic itself is meant more to promote the webcomic. Continue reading
I am breaking for the holidays. There will be NO blog posts from now until January 5, 2019.
Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year!
There is a new Kickstarter update. The Sunnyville Super Special #2 arrived and the first copies get mailed out this week.
Today, the final copy of Dominic & Claire will be done and sent off to the printers.
I’d like to share what you’ll see in that digest size comic. Continue reading
As you readers know, a Sunnyville Stories spin-off is scheduled for release in February 2019. This will be titled the Dominic & Claire Funnies.
My plans for the comic have changed. Instead of the planned standard comic book size, the comic will be a digest size of 5.5 by 8.5 inches. It will still be in color but only 12 pages instead of the original planned 16 pages. Continue reading
It has come and gone. This year’s December Toys Collectibles & Curiosities Expo has happened. Shall I share some photos with you?

Well, readers, I have a few announcements to make in this brief post. First, to those of you who backed the Sunnyville Super Special #2 Kickstarter – the first rewards have FINALLY gone out! I have sent out a round of PDF copies of my comic book to you backers. By the weekend, the physical copies of the comic will have arrived and those can start going out.
Speaking of the weekend, this Saturday December 8, 2018, I will be vending my comics at the Toys Collectibles & Curiosities Expo in Moorhead Center Mall of Moorhead, Minnesota. Be there as it is free to the public and cool merchandise will be up for sale! Plus there are some great places to eat in the mall like Everest Tikka House and Jay’s Barbecue (which has AMAZING mashed potatoes). Continue reading
Work is continuing on Dominic & Claire, the Sunnyville Stories spin-off. But as I’ve said before, there is a lot more to comics than just drawing them.
Sunnyville Stories is an art comic first and foremost. It’s personal expression – I have explained before I considered it an auteur comic. In contrast, Dominic & Claire is comedy, being a gag-based comic. Humor has a more broad appeal than niche material than Sunnyville. Therefore, I intend to get Dominic & Claire out on schedule in February 2019. It is imperative I get it out to sell at both FM Comicon and another possible event in March. Continue reading
This is a personal entry. As 2018 draws to a close and we approach 2019, I feel conflicted inside. What I feel is a paradox.
I feel that success is so close and yet at the same time it is so far away from me.
How to proceed? My mind boggles. I felt it was time for a fresh perspective so I sorted through my books until I found what I was looking for – the Cerebus Guide to Self-Publishing by Dave Sim from Aardvark-Vanaheim. As you all know, Dave Sim is the creator of Cerebus the Aardvark which he drew, wrote and published to the very end – all 300 issues. Continue reading
