What time is it? UPLOAD TIME!
So I seem to have fallen into this pattern of writing a new journal entry with my thoughts, ideas and hopes before I upload any new pages.
So it is that this point one can assume that If you see a new journal entry then chances are good that there are new pages. This time is no different.
I enjoyed these next two pages so thoroughly that I'm actually uploading them early, originally I wanted to present them with the next three or so pages that follow those,
but changed my mind once I started and found that I couldn't stop until these two were done.
So, with that out of the way I also wanted to present an idea that I have floating around in my head.
I have been blessed enough to have a job that is not only quite close to what I want to do personally. (I print and design poster and sale ads for a New England based comic company) It's more impressive than it sounds, and is actually quite boring and frustrating, but still satisfying. In this job, however, I have benefits that I never imagined I would have in my adult life and one of them is PAID VACATION!
Now in the past, I would save all my vacation hours for when I would go out on the road with my band mates so I would essentially get paid to drink a stupid amount of booze and rock out with various body parts out. Now I don't want to get into any of the personal dirty details of whats going on with that, but I have, at this point, around 50 hours of unused vacation time just sitting there with nothing in the horizon to use em up.
What does any of that have to do with ponies you ask? Well, it so happens I thought of a nice portmanteau to describe my idea and that's a super awesome
DRAWCATION! (draw-kay-shun) A whole week off, with nothing to do but draw!
The plan is to line this up with the completion of Chapter one and the start of the Fallout: Equestria Graphic Novel's first format extension. The date is still up in the air and I still need to look into a couple different ways to present the Intro and first chapter. Whether through a tumblr like page or ,as someone suggested, an e-book is still up for debate as I still need to do some more research into these type of things. My plan would to be and upload the completed chapters into this second format. I have a whole bunch of ideas for that as well, so many in fact that I'm having a hard time putting them down into a cohesive sentence so I'll just list things as they come to my mind.
-Multiple(2) Covers (full color)
-Liner Notes (not sure what these are, I'll look into it!)
-Extra Exclusive Pages?
-Extra INclusive Pages
I even might try and work on my own non-pony comic, which isn't really a thing but still something I'm constantly thinking about! The time! THE TIME!
So that's happening within in the next, oh, let's say four weeks? Once I'm closer to the end of the first chapter I'll have a more solid idea of when that's happening, also I'll need to co-ordinate the time at work I take off with the completion of the first chapter. So there are a number of things swirling around the old brain pan, but don't you worry!
Ol' Uncle Brons has got your back and I'll make damn sure something magical happens!
Thoughts? Other Ideas? Suggestions?
And with that I leave you this thing that I suggest you listen to multiple times a day, as I do.www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qwKCQ…
