Well, although I’m feeling artistically inspired again, I seem to have got writer’s block again when it comes to writing these daily articles.
So, for today, I thought that I’d show you a few badly-drawn comics I made in 2008-9 that have never been seen before…. probably for a good reason.
Although I didn’t make a huge number of comics back then, I made a few. Some of these took a bit of digging to find and this is just a fraction of the overall number of comics I made back then – many of the best ones are too introspective, too melodramatic and/or too weird to post here.
Since I drew many of these comics in hardback notebooks rather than in (easily-scanned) spiral-bound sketchbooks, the quality of these images won’t always be great. I’ve also edited a couple of these pictures digitally too (once for legibility reasons and three times for privacy reasons).
As usual, you can see a larger versions of any comic in this article if you click on it.
Anyway, let’s get started….
“Deck Trouble” was a webcomic that I’d planned to post online in 2009, but didn’t. It was meant to be a topical and fairly random comic, but it wasn’t really that good. Even so, here are three strips from it (with commentary).
“Trentport West” was a sci-fi short story that I wrote in late 2008/early-mid 2009 (and planned in mid-2008). Anyway, I tried – and failed – to make a couple of comics based on it during this time….
Writer’s Block comic
Finally, in very late 2009/very early 2010, I had a seriously terrible case of writer’s block. And, in an attempt to finish a short story I was writing at the time, I decided to make a badly-drawn three-page comic based on it. This is probably the least badly-drawn page from that comic:
Anyway, I hope that this glimpse into my artistic past was interesting 🙂 Hopefully, I’ll think of an idea for a proper article for tomorrow…
