hello all! happy valentine’s day!
time for a BROBOT update. animation is chugging along on ep 103; i should hit a full minute here in the next few days. i’m sure i’ll go back and edit that animation throughout the process, and i intend to fully remake one shot i’m not satisfied with. but what’s interesting is since i haven’t really begun a full-scale animated project in *checks watch with dread* uhhh two years, i’ve had to re-learn project management. for example, “i’ve spent too long on this shot. time to move on, i’ll come back to it later”, or “it doesn’t have to be perfect”. i’m not an animator and don’t want to be — i really want to work in storyboarding — so this part of the process can be tedious and difficult for me. i’m also battling my typical daily anxieties and perfectionism, but i’m learning again to be more consistent with progress.
things are going well, and i’m excited to move to the next scene and keep on goin! in other news, as is usual, you can catch me at FLUKE in athens, ga. this coming march… exciting! my third time going. i am certain to have absolutely nothing new to show for myself but comics aren’t disappearing altogether. it’s just that BROBOT can be an all-consuming process, especially with a deadline looming. i’m still making near-daily comics in my sketchbook. and i’m looking forward to putting together the next (final?) issue of something anything, for a potential christmas or january release. you can also expect to see another fully scripted minicomic and the third and final “places” zine by next years’ festival season. after that, i’ve got plans to shift my comic output to different avenues… maybe even children’s stuff! but as for now? bruh, i got nothin’. maybe i’ll figure out something!
for now, enjoy this small unfinished screenshot of jason and BB in halloween costumes. fun! see ya next time.
