I had this idea a long time ago. I was hoping to make it into an actual every once in a while gag strip but there is only so much cleverness inside of this brain of mine… I still might, but for the time being I’ll just continue making fun of myself instead.
I have finally wrote my first script. well, it’s not my first script ever… but it’s my first script for future use in one of my upcoming projects. It’s 17 pages but I am going to try to edit it down to 15.
It’s a short story that I have been sitting on for ohhhh 6 years now? Maybe longer… I have tried multiple times expanding it beyond the 10 pages of short story but could never manage to keep the feeling going. Every single time I took it beyond the initial story, it lost something. Plus, from there I always lost interest.
I have probably rewritten it a dozen times over the years but never as a comic script. I am so excited as I reread it over again and can visualize the story I know so well and I am hoping I can translate it into something that everyone else can see.
I have two other short stories that I have been kicking around as well as a short story that I ended up using pieces of for a novel I wrote two years back (another project I am hoping to finish before the end of 2015). Also, I am almost giddy of the idea of taking a “choose your own adventure” story I had written a short while back and also making that into a comic.
Man, all these projects and so little time! I’ll be drawing thumbnails on my lunch hour for the next two years I’m afraid. In the meantime of all of this I am also trying to draw up some strips and some fan art that I hope will keep you interested. I am hoping to post something new every Wednesday. Stick around and I will post as things come along!
I love the movie/musical Sweeney Todd with Johnny Depp. I’ve always wanted to d a comic about him since he is such a great character. I tried to do a couple of things with the upside down text and the blood that was a little different. I realized I wouldn’t be able to do anything like that in a printed version so I had to try with a web version. Enjoy.
People got really sick of me mentioning the Prime Number thing. I thought it was completely relevant and appropriate but others were definitely not on the same page. I guess they don’t enjoy math as much as I do.
I have uploaded all of my Ten Cent Sammy’s comic strips for your enjoyment. Just click on the link. I do not as of right now have any plans on making more, but you never know when life will throw you a curve ball. Please enjoy and come back as I will be loading other comics and drawings I have put together over the course of the year. Of course all of this is in lieu of bigger and better things to come!
