good news: you can now read the story of BFF from where it left off in the middle of chapter 14 and also the brand-new, never-before seen chapters 15, 16, and 17 !!
not as good news: I’m not doing this as a comic anymore. since the last update I’ve been thinking a lot about what I actually want to do (like, in my life) and I’m not so sure comics are my thing! I’m exploring other kinds of visual storytelling right now.
what this means for BFF is that the new chapters consist of:
- sketches of things that i’m actually excited to draw
- summary text explaining what else happens
This lets me get this story off my chest at a pace I’m actually happy with. You also get to look at some really raw drawings of mine, which I think is cool too! I’m really trying to make this personal project of mine truly as personal as possible, and cut out all the salesman showmanship stuff that burns me out.
Some people might not be into this, and I’m OK with that - please don’t feel like you need to keep reading! But also please don’t send me messages about how you “miss” this or that. That just makes us both feel sad!
In case you’re wondering, I’m not going to charge the Patreon any more, and I’ll probably delete it in the near future.
Yeah I have a big piece of advice! Stop “aspiring”!!!!! Your aspirations end now!!!!
YES YOU! DON’T WAIT! START NOW! (passionate rambling incoming…)
The freaking coolest thing about living in the year 20XX is that you don’t have to have anyone’s permission to be an Animated Series creator. Grab a trial copy of Flash, or make flipbooks, or your own GIFs, or make some stop motion with your phone. Just start making whatever you want! Don’t save your good ideas for some big-wig executives or networks. Just do them right now! Don’t be precious with your ideas, just put them out there.
Content that’s on TV or in movies is not “more official” than stuff you make in your home on your spare time to share with friends on the internet. It’s all the same!!!!! As long as you enjoy it, who cares!! And if other people happen to like it also, then BONUS!!
The experience you get from trying to make something good on your own is so much more important than any future dream of being a big shot. Upload what you do to the internet and get feedback, show it to as many people as you can and listen to critiques. Learn to do stuff all by yourself, and only for your own pleasure.
From what I’ve seen, the people who end up creating a good animated series are the same people who have been creating their own stories, cartoons, comics and music on their own just for fun long before they ever got the shot at the big-time. Read about how your favorite cartoons are made, and try to do the process on your own. You’ll learn what your strengths are and what you’re interested in exploring.
(If you don’t have the facilities to create animation on your own, make something smaller scale- like a script, a comic, or a storyboard!)
OK THEN HERE’S STEP TWO: once you’ve learned to love your work on your own and figured out what you like to draw and what you’re passionate about, you may get a chance to pitch an idea. And thanks to the work you’ve done, you’ll be READY! Instead of some half-finished ideas, you’ll be able to point to all the amazing stuff you’ve created on your own and say “look, I already know what I like, AND I already know how to do it!” —-that’s WAY more impressive than an undeveloped idea with nothing to show for it. PLUS, the bonus of doing good work on your own is that you’ll attract attention and opportunity! I know so many people working in this industry who were discovered from their own silly personal work that was just randomly found online.
GET TO IT! DON’T WAIT FOR ANYONE’S PERMISSION TO BE THE CREATOR YOU WANT TO BE! START NOW! YOU HAVE TO START NOW! DON’T YOU MAKE ME COME OVER THERE AND FORCE YOU TO DO IT! YOUR “ASPIRATION DAYS” ARE OVER!
THIS!!!!! You’re not an “aspiring” artist, YOU’RE AN ARTIST. OWN IT! DO IT!!!

Some people have a hard time adjusting to life after retirement. Whether it’s the stockbroker who can’t stop checking the market reports or the English teacher who feels the need to correct his grandchildren’s grammar, sometimes old habits die hard.
Maybe that’s why even after announcing his…
Designing The Secret of Kells will be released at this years San Diego Comic-Con where Tom Moore and Paul Young will be at signing copies at the Stuart Ng booth.
THIS IS NOT A DRILL
Seeing all the cool stuff nintendo was doing at E3 put a fire in my belly! So I finally set to learning three-dee. I’m really proud of how Dove turned out! I hope someday down the road I can make a game in this style
drawing lots of places this summer
UPDATE: here’s the current plan 4chan’s going to use please read this
SECONDARY UPDATE: TURN YOUR ANON ASKS AND SUBMIT OFF apparently they’re going to send anons and submit gore and porn please be careful and safe
I hate reading through stuff like this but this is just further warning to turn off submits and anons. I would even suggest turning off asks altogether if you can afford to do so. Also, if you have any specific triggers then the above info may be useful to you. (e.g. anyone with triggers related to excrement may want to avoid Tumblr tomorrow)
Particularly since the green text says something about posting responses to /b/, I would strongly suggest not responding to anything these people post or send. It’s what they’re looking for, and the more upset/serious you are, the funnier they’re going to find it.
