Road To A [Horror] Comic – October And Why You Should Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone

Jump to Why You Should Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone This is harder than I anticipated. Not the drawing part - I knew how difficult that was going to be. No, I'm referring to fitting in all the things I want to do! I lost my job (spoiler alert) last year and that has … Continue reading Road To A [Horror] Comic – October And Why You Should Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone

Road to a [horror] Comic – Sept 2020 #2

Another two weeks have passed and I've got more progress to share. This whole idea came about in January 2019 when I had the 'great' idea to turn one of my short stories into a show comic strip. The only problem (and its a big one) was that I couldn't really draw. I'm not looking … Continue reading Road to a [horror] Comic – Sept 2020 #2

Road to a [Horror] Comic – Sept 2020

Way back when, I had decided that I would try to create my own comic book version of one of my short stories, and every couple of weeks or so, I was posting my progress towards that end. Well, as mentioned in an earlier post, life kinda stepped in the way, and those posts (along … Continue reading Road to a [Horror] Comic – Sept 2020

Road To A [Horror] Comic: Weeks 12-14

Another 2 weeks in the bag, and it's looking more likely that a fortnight posting schedule for these updates is more realistic, as I have quite a bit going on in my life at the moment. That's not an excuse, and the drawing is still happening, in fact, the drawing is perhaps the one thing … Continue reading Road To A [Horror] Comic: Weeks 12-14

Road to a [Horror] Comic: Week 9-10

Good morning (well, I'm in the UK and it's 10am at time of writing, but you could be anywhere in the world, or reading this at any time, so I suppose that was a pointless opening). Welcome to another week of drawing! I'm still combining the drawing with the writing, and am currently working on: … Continue reading Road to a [Horror] Comic: Week 9-10

Road To A [Horror] Comic: Week 8-9

I don't feel I've been as productive this week as I could have been. A number of things have cropped up in my personal life which have meant writing and drawing have taken a back seat this week, but never fear! I have made some progress in my drawing, and I'm achingly close to starting … Continue reading Road To A [Horror] Comic: Week 8-9

Road To A [Horror] Comic: Week 7-8

The end of week 8 on this road I have chosen towards the production of a comic version of one of my short stories. What Have I Learned So Far? Not everyone is interested - these posts are not doing particularly well. So why am I continuing with them? Well I came to the conclusion … Continue reading Road To A [Horror] Comic: Week 7-8

Road to a [Horror] Comic: Week 5-6

This week has been difficult as I've tried to juggle a week off work (family time) with my writing (several lengthy blog posts) and this comic. Oh, I'm also trying to watch Game of Thrones for the first time, so trying to fit in at least an episode every day has come in to my … Continue reading Road to a [Horror] Comic: Week 5-6

Road to a [Horror] Comic: Week 4-5

Another week into this challenge I've set myself, and time for a recap I think. I started off with the most amazing art in my mind. This comic would be something to rival the finest that Marvel has ever produced. It would be lovingly hand drawn and in full colour. Now, at week 5, I'm … Continue reading Road to a [Horror] Comic: Week 4-5

Road to a [Horror] Comic: Week 2-3

Welcome back to my update on how my comic is coming along. If you're new here, you can check back to the first post HERE, but basically the idea is that I am aiming to draw a comic based on one of my short horror stories. However I am currently trying to overcome the problem … Continue reading Road to a [Horror] Comic: Week 2-3
