Ziggy the Space Tomato: Part 21


We're past the 20 episode stage!

It seems more substantial to be able to say that, that now it's passed the initial starting up stage and moving onto phase 2, growth, development, establishment- generally, it's on a roll. Woo!

And then you realise how many pages this would take up in print, but never mind. As my mum used to say, 'Slowly but surely wins the race'.

Celebrate with me now this minor achievement by going to your food cupboard and breaking into a chocolate bar (in my case a Wispa), and eat a toast to giving new ideas a chance to grow and improve, because at the end of the day, the best ideas are not developed with the thought of money in mind.

Not that I'm saying this is in those idea's hallowed company. Yet. I'm going to have a good go though.

Enough wittering.

Ziggy the Space Tomato: Part 20

And just who are these mysterious fellows?

I recently finished reading the first story in Sean Wang's 'Runners' comic, and it's cracking stuff. It's a sci fi tale, with well developed characters, a good steady setup of the story's universe, and a lovely pay off on the action front, once you've got to know the cast. The comic timing is lovely, as is the banterous dialogue. The second story is being shown in instalments at the moment, so it's well worth the trip. It's just a shame it takes so long to craft something so good! More of this type of thing would be brilliant.

I should point out that exam time is looming for me, so Ziggy could be delayed in the near future. But not for too long. I have to get this storytelling thing out of my system some how, so it definitely won't be a long delay. In the meantime, enjoy and please pass this on to anyone you know who might like it. And drop me a line to say what you're liking. Or not. Gulp. Cheers!

Ziggy the Space Tomato: Part 19

And so, the story broadens... and it all begins with beans.

As do lots of things...

One thing I want to do is go back to the earlier frames and tweak them. I've been trying a looser style which was a bit different to my usual more 'flowy' approach, the problem being that I started with the 'flowy' style then switched mid-way through. And I'd like to improve earlier frames anyway. So we'll see what to do about that. At the moment, I'm just going to draw fresh episodes and get a more spiffy website up later.

this, alas, is the bottom of the page and you can't go further. turn back!
