Hello, O totally unexpected large audience,
This is called Dangerous Experiments in Comics not because these are Experimental Comics but because as normally a non-comics artist this is all an experiment.. as such you will have to put up with not only the disastrous chemical explosions, but also the tedious followup paperwork that is The Stuff of Science.
On a more serious note, I think the pacing was the main issue in the last.. issue. And some of the lame gags. Hey at least I spared you this:
There seem to be, if not FAQs, a few Qs:
— What medium are you using?
These are pretty much drawn start to finish in Painter on a 12x Cintiq. The 5px detail Sumi-e and 10px coarse bristle Sumi-e, if you care about that kind of thing. Bubbles are drawn with the freehand line tool. Text is done with a lot of swearing because, Painter, I love you, but your text handling is terrible. If I was serious I would probably export the art and then use Illustrator for the dialogue, but then I’d have to plan ahead, wouldn’t I?
— Are you selling any art?
I will not sell my art, you bourgeois pig!! Because as it happens, There Is No Art. There Is Only Data. See above. I do have a print-resolution output of Ada Lovelace: The Origin by request of an educational institution; if you’re a teacher and want to put it up you can contact me and I’ll send you the file.
–Will there be t-shirts?
Um, sure? It hadn’t even crossed my mind, but it seems pretty straightforward to do, and now I want a t-shirt myself. Is there anything in particular people would like a tshirt of?
–Will there be more?
Ghu, I’m not being coy here, I really don’t know. I’m between films at the moment (I’m an animator) but this state of affairs won’t go on for too much longer. On the other hand, these are fun to do and I really want to do Vampire Poets. Ooh, and the one with Brunel. So, it depends on the craziness levels of work and how they intersect with my craziness levels, really.
— Will you marry me/accept my sexual favours?
You’d have to route that through my husband ;).
BTW Terrence Eden in the comments links to this uncanny coincidence– a comic about the software behind the financial collapse! The guy even looks kind of Babbagy…
