Small Treasures

Wednesday, November 1st, 2006

I hope you all had a great Halloween.  I hit the jackpot and found a razor blade in my apple.  Hooooo! Shiny things for the win! 

Have a great week.  I’ll see you next Wednesday. 🙂

    Congratulations on the razorblade.

    I noticed you put a link up to my site, The Flowfield Unity… Thanks 🙂

    I’ll sort a link to your site too (not just for the link, but because I really like your comic), soon.

    Thanks for checking out my comic Adam!

    Readers, you must visit my links page and click on the Flowfield Unity link if you’re not familiar with Adam’s work to understand why I am honored that he visited my lil comic. TFU is really unique. I love it.

    I have added a number of awesome webcomics over the last week or so. Remember, I don’t do random reciprocal linking, but weed through hundreds of webcomics to find ones that I really enjoy and think my readers would like. Please do check it out. 🙂

    Hey there, I just wanted to say that I like your comic! I’m sad that there are only 9 of them so far. 🙁 A week is a long time to wait! I laughed out loud at today’s comic. Looking forward to #10.

    wow two visits from two webcomickers i love in one day. yay me! readers, chris does book of biff also on my links page, check it out!

    ty so much for checking out my comic, chris. i appreciate the positive feedback!

    as for the once a week updates that’s all i want to commit to right now cuz it takes me ages to do one. i’m so damn slow. 🙁 however, i plan to do bonus comics pretty often. i’ll always let you all know when to check back in advance or just hit your back button when you visit on wednesdays in case you missed a bonus strip.

    all the best,
    calan

    Horrible, horrible, horribly delicious. I’m enjoying your bitterly sweet creation here. You’re on my TWCL favorites and I’ll peeking through my fingers for more. Keep it up!

    thanks daniel! omg, i just looked at your website. stories, webcomics and art ..oh my! amazing work. i could spend days there. adding baeg tobar to my links page now.

  9. Chris Hallbeck Says:

    I’m sure you will get faster. How long does it take you to do one comic right now?

  10. calan Says:

    umm like a zillion hours. O.o seriously, i never tallied it up but say 4 hours or so, but often not all at once. i’m not a great artist so what looks so simple to the viewer, might actually take me a lot of attempts before i got something i was even remotely happy with. during those attempts i might get tired or annoyed and come back later or i might do it in one sitting. it’s all done in PS with my wacom so thank goodness for the eraser tool and the ability to work in layers.

  11. Chris Hallbeck Says:

    Well that’s not bad. My comics take 2 to 5 hours to do… but that’s just the drawing, inking, coloring, posting part. Writing the comics is the hard part and that can take from 30 seconds to a week. 🙂

  12. calan Says:

    haha totally. it’s funny but i really can’t sit down and “write” one. If I do that absolutely nothing comes to me. Instead it’s when I’m falling asleep, working on another project, brushing my teeth, etc that the ideas come to me. I’m learning the hard way that I will need to carry a notebook around because I can’t tell you how many ideas I have forgotten. :/

    I love your artwork and read your process on TWCL thread. Biff’s eyebrows are the bomb! It’s easy to see a lot of work goes into yours and the humor is always dead on.

    Check out http://www.thebookofbiff.com people. We have a celebrity among us! HOOOOO!

  13. Chris Hallbeck Says:

    Yes! You need one of those mini notebooks or sketchbooks. I used to write a lot of comics while at work. These moleskine books are cool because they don’t have the metal spiral to snag on the inside of your pocket. http://www.dickblick.com/zz118/55/
