Portrait update

I just updated the portrait of Caroline for Caroline’s Secret.

Portrait of Caroline

The last couple of days I’ve been working on a number of things connected with Caroline’s Secret, my personal project.  One of these was the story, which has been troubling me for a little while and now I’m much happier with.  The other is the portrait of Caroline, above.  This is an early version and it may change yet, but…

The blog is back

If any of you tried to come here over the last couple of weeks you’ll have noticed the blog was down.  This was due to a problem with the database which even changing server didn’t fix.  The tech guys at my hosting provider eventually tracked it down to some weirdness with the username. So, it’s back and a couple of things have…

Story to Nowhere – an updated image

In order for the new Story to Nowhere project to work I’m going to be updating some of the images used in the original.  Here’s an example of how I’m re-working the images.

Story to Nowhere – a test screenshot

I’ve been playing around with ideas for continuing Story to Nowhere as a game (maybe even a series of them) and this test screenshot shows the way I’m thinking about the art direction.

Story to Nowhere – a quick return

It didn’t take me long to realise that I couldn’t stay away from Mike and his life.  However, I’ve changed the format and am now doing it as a series of journal entries on a blog: Story to Nowhere – Mike’s Journal.  There will be no art in this current section of the project but there will be a little…

Story to Nowhere – 100 episodes!

Today I posted the 100th episode of Story to Nowhere! It’s certainly been an interesting journey so far, trying not to think too far ahead, discovering the characters and what happens to them as I go along, not knowing if it will work.  I still don’t know if it will work, but I’m finding it an interesting approach to character….

Story to Nowhere – big update

I’ve been wondering about the future of Story to Nowhere, but rather than be hasty about it I decided to give it a bit of a re-vamp and see where that would take it.

Story to Nowhere – a new update

I’ve started updating Story to Nowhere again.  I’m now in part two of the story and I’m looking to post new episodes on Mondays and Thursdays for the time being. For those who are unfamiliar with Story to Nowhere, you can start reading from the beginning if you wish to catch up. This is a aproach to story creation where…

Mitchell update

I’ve just posted a new Mitchell cartoon. I’d previously been posting twice a week on Mondays and Fridays, but I’ve decided to increase this to three times a week and will be possting on Sundays, Tuesdays and Fridays. The natural thing might bave been to post on Mon-Wed-Fri, but this would have clashed with Mr. Smoozles on Wednesdays. I’ve also…

New Mitchell cartoon

This morning I posted the fourth of my new Mitchell cartoons. I’m currently updating on Mondays and Fridays but may increase this in the new year to three times a week. I currently have ideas written down for about 40 cartoons, which will keep me going for a little while. I’ve also been updating Story to Nowhere regularly and the…

Story to Nowhere reaches 50!

I’ve just posted the latest Story to Nowhere episode. This is the 50th episode and it seems that I’ve reached this minor milestone very quickly. Although the 50th episode coincides with a very powerful moment, I didn’t design it this way as I’m not thinking ahead as I create it, taking each one as it comes. This has thrown up…
