And the story continues.  I think one of my favorite things about drawing this scene was the posters in the back.   Why are the inspirational posters in offices so depressing?   There is nothing worse than being schooled by your boss while there is a poster in the background making you feel worse about being a mediocre employee.  I digress…

On a positive note, I’ve started a Twitter account so now you can follow all of the exploits of your favorite protagonist on his  quest to balance life and work in 140 characters or less.

And as always, Thanks for reading!

There are times in life where no matter how confident you are, something happens that raises the blood pressure a little.  An unexpected (or expected) ring from the office phone can do just that.

Ten Cent Sammy’s – Late Again.

Late Again
Late Again

Here is the first page to an ongoing story for my Ten Cen Sammy’s title.  I plan on posting every Tuesday and Thursday at least until I get this story line done.  From there, who knows?  I may tackle a different story I have cooking.  I am also going to put these on the Ten Cent Sammy’s page so that they can be viewed consecutively as apposed to in blog format.

I’d also like to mention that I feel it’s appropriate to point out that this comic is late according to my proposed schedule plan in my last blog and the comic is also centered about being late.  What can I say?  Some people just can’t make it anywhere on time.

Thanks for reading!

The Marty McFly Conundrum

Marty McFly Conundrum
Marty McFly Conundrum

This is an older comic that I worked up but I still love it.  Every time I stumble upon it I chuckle.  It’s so gross how can you not like it?  Also, the thought of all of the different sorts of trouble a time traveler could get into such as this makes me head hurt.  To be honest, it is a common thought that I have.

If you think it’s as funny and gross as I do, leave a comment.  Or you can head over to the JasonDouglasComics facebook page and say something funny and slightly irrational about it there.

Neglect, Inspiration and Captain Kirk

IMG_0001 cop2yNeglect a funny word.  Well… not really.  Mostly it means that you had responsibilities but decided to willfully shirk them because you decided to do something else.  English lesson aside, I admit to neglecting to put up a post as regularly as I have been as well as posting any comic strips in the last few weeks.  My only excuse was that I could not neglect other responsibilities like packing and repairing my house to make it sell worthy.  For the few folks who have been following me as well as have been enjoying my comics, you have my most sincere apology.  But the time away from the site has not all been in vain which leads me to the work portion of the post.

In the few spare minutes I have had while not painting, drilling, packing and swearing at my ineptitude in regards to handiness, I have been writing and reading.  Which to me is most of the work when it comes to creating comics.  I have pages upon pages of scripts from manga to comic strips that are all in the works.  I have also created a Deviantart page which I will start posting work on regularly.  Also, I have decided that a Tuesday/Thursday schedule will probably work best with my schedule for now.  Lastly, I plan on taking down the Amazon store soon and focusing on commissions which as soon as I have everything in order can be purchased by emailing me (more information to follow soon).

The more I thought about it the more I figured out that to me, all of this is more about creating comics and being artistic than making money.  I have a good 9 to 5 job that I plan on keeping so, while making money is amazing and I will work my hardest to do so, it is not my soul objective for this site or my comics.  I would much rather make money off of my drawings of characters and my own books than someone else’s (no comments about Fanart, please).  Now, with that all being said, this leads me to the actual portion of the blog that talks about comic books.

Last week, I had the pleasure of reading Ghostopolis by Doug TedNapel for the second time.  Reading a book twice is something I rarely do.  I loved the book just as much the second time around as I did the first.  I then went on to take out Creature Tech  and I was amazed.  There have been few books that have made me laugh out loud whilst reading by myself and there have been moments in both books that have made me do so.  This is not a review since everyone has their own opinions and will read what they like.  This is more a nod to the inspiration of what comic books as well as good writing can be.  To me these books make me want to be better at my own craft an let me know that no matter how good I think I am getting, there is always more to learn and different techniques to try.

If you want a review for these books, you can look on the internet yourself since I do not want this to become a “Comic Book Review” site.  But rather, the folks who like comics who happen to stumble upon my site I would love to share with them what helps me keep my ideas and creativity flowing.  Every time I put one of these books down, all I want to do is draw and to an aspiring comics creator, this is the fuel I need to keep going and I hope I can pass along a little wisdom in this area to the next person.  If you have a chance and are looking for something a little different, do yourself a favor and get these books in someway.  You will not be sorry.

Thanks for reading my blogs and sharing my comics and I hope you come back again!
