Sorry it took a while longer than planned for an update! I promise they’ll start to get more frequent, and I may even be starting the comic a bit sooner than expected!
One of the roadblocks I had was simply how to start the damn thing. I decided to borrow the TV show pilot idea and do a “Driving Nowhere Pilot” There will be 4-5 pages individually centering on what each character is doing before the comic launches. This way I can jump right into the comic without worrying too much about ‘setting the scene’ and awkwardly introducing characters for the reader.
This is important as I don’t plan on a typical storyline you see in webcomics. These characters will know each other, but it’s going to be realistic. Adults don’t hang out in large groups like a TV sitcom all pointed to one direction with “OH NO SHE DI-DNT!” one liners cracking off relentlessly to please the canned laugh track.. they have their own lives.
I’m interested in the interweaving, yet separate, relationships of many different people. More details later, but hopefully you’ll have fun experiencing this story with me.
Anyway I’m sorta firing off what’s on my mind right now. Random doodles above are ‘eh’, I have a pretty drawing I did with markers at the gallery I’ll post up later. :)
PS: OHYA, I decided to go back with Alexis and use ‘Lexi’ for short. Chloe just wasn’t working in my mind for that character, but I may end up using that name again in the future.
