Every Sad Story Updates Monday through Fridays. Normally.

Today's update. "Nothing Happened Today"

http://everysadstoryneedsnuns.thecomicseries.com/

Alright, normally, I would leave a link, hoping you will click and satisfy my ego.

But today's comic is special, and worthy of you seeing without clicking on the link.

I started this drawing with the intention of making a little note about going on a hiatus. You know, to inform the five people that read my web comic. And dammit, if I'm not pleased with this drawing.

Sure, you've seen better. I've seen better. You know how long it took me to draw the above picture? 18 seconds.

Eighteen seconds.

Oh, wait, eighteen seconds on a computer tablet even. (For those who don't know, me drawing on a computer tablet is like pushing a deer out onto an iced over pond. Not pretty.)

I'm going to just say it, fuck me, Freddy. A year ago, when I first thought about starting a web comic, I would not think I would be able to draw a sphere, let alone this, this in under an hour.

This picture is what my doodles on paper look like now.

I don't know if this gives me hope, or is just feeding my ego enough for me to forget and move on or what.

But my drawing skills are improving. And if I applied more effort, they would improve more quickly.


So maybe it is hope. Hope that one day, I will have mad drawing skills. Hope that one day I will finish writing and drawing my opus, aka Frank & Hilde.

And that's not a bad feeling.

Pretty proud of today's strip. It's not a masterpiece. I just really like it.

1.) With a lack of will to hook the scanner back to the computer, I've managed to update Every Sad Story Needs Nuns four times this week. It's the bamboo tablet, it's my mouse, and while I'm hovering that little pen over the tablet I might as well open up Corel Paint and practice some drawings.

I'm using this as an exercise in learning how to do digital drawings. 

In May, ESSNN will be a year old. I still do not claim to be a good artist or writer. My main hope is by doing my shitty little web comic, I can inspire others to take a chance on something they think they are shit at. Maybe someone will click on the link, think "This is shit, I can do better." and go and finally try web comics even though they don't have a degree in Sequential Art or haven't taken an art class since seventh grade or the "right" drawing tools, or whatever it is that is keeping them from doing this.

Or maybe they will see how shitty I continue to be, but how much I enjoy doing the web comic (really, I do enjoy doing the web comic, I swear.) and think "You know, I've always wanted to try [insert activity you've convinced yourself you couldn't do], maybe now is the time."

Listen, I'm not saying you should audition for American Idol  believing you will win if you are tone deaf. But that shouldn't prevent you from singing your favourite songs on the radio or trying out for a role in your community theatre's production of Guys and Dolls.

Life isn't about doing everything perfectly. Life is about living and experiences and trying new things. Especially if we think we are going to be awful at them. Because you never know. You might suck at it, but it bring you joy in an otherwise grey day. Or you might turn out to be not bad at all.


Anyway, the moral of this story? Every Sad Story Needs Nuns will be updated Monday through Friday. The drawings will most likely suck, and the storyline boring, but it will be updated with passion and enthusiasm.


2.)
My faith in humanity slowly rises. Especially after reading this article:

3.) Currently Reading: The Best American Comics 2006

thoughts: I should break down and purchase a copy of this volume. It is my favourite volume to date of the series.

Just Watched: *An Angel at My Table, **Hamlet 2

thoughts:  *This is the dramatisation of the autobiographies of the New Zealand writer, Janet Frame. It's a bit slow, and a bit long. But a fantastic film to watch. Especially if you are a writer, an outcast, a book lover, or all of the above.

**This was a bizarre little film about a drama teacher at an Arizona high school who wants to be taken a bit more serious. So he writes a sequel to Hamlet that his drama class performs. I loved it, and recommend it to the writers, the high school drama nerds, and those who feel like giving up.

Still no scanner hook up.

Hell froze. I updated.

http://everysadstoryneedsnuns.thecomicseries.com/

To be fair, it's a crappy quick sketch strip done in Corel Painter. I'm still too lazy to hook the scanner back up.

I just realized I need to update the picture, since the comic is no longer at blogspot. Eh, I'll get around to it someday.
