An Update

Thought I’d write a little update to let you all know how my latest project is coming. :) [This post gets a little long, but I hope it’s interesting anyway!]

I finished “Mr. Bee” on Oct. 3, and then spent a couple weeks after that faffing about with the text, trying to make it perfect. I got so much insightful feedback from so many excellent people; thank you. But some suggestions contradicted others, or some didn’t match the tone I was going for, or whatever, and no matter what I did I couldn’t make it absolutely “perfect” that pleased everyone I asked. After numerous drafts and arguing pros and cons of specific words with friends and family, at the final critique I got yet more feedback about what I could do differently, and at that point I realized I just had to let it go. For now, at least.

But it did mean that I spent a couple weeks where I was so focused on trying to fix that comic that I found it really difficult to start on the second one. I spent all of last week writing (which was trickier than I thought it would be!) and all of this weekend thumbnailing. (I’m so behind!)

I think thumbnailing is definitely the trickiest part of the whole process for me.

Yup. It’s that time of week again.

Are you reading Wyrmwood High yet? Why not? :D

Thumbnailing is complicated. :\

I’m so glad you’re the first person to know.

Agh, my heart!

"Mr. Bee" - By Heather L. Gilbraith
Brush pen and Photoshop CS5.

This is the first comic in a series of short 3-5 page comic stories that will hopefully comprise my grad project by the end of the year. Each of the stories are based on dreams I’ve had, but are not entirely limited by that distinction.

This comic is based on a dream I had where I was a food critic named Mr. Bee, who honestly couldn’t remember the life he had lived. All he remembered was being eight years old.

You can see the pencils for it right here.

Just a friendly reblog of this incase anyone missed it. :)

Daily Rheall

A while ago I made up this side blog. It started as a place where I could post daily sketches/writing and such, but now I’m a lot less strict about the whole “daily” part, and instead I’ve been using it to showcase more of my now-and-then writing experiments. (It also has a few photographs I’ve taken that are inspirational or relate to stories I’m currently writing in some way.)

Writing is just as much a part of me and my practice as drawing is (I wanted to be a writer long before I wanted to be an artist), though writing is much harder for me to show off and share for some reason. This side blog is an attempt to change that. So, if you think that might be interesting, please take a look and consider following! I’m not quite sure what I’ll post next. Something new, something old…?

Thanks for listening. :)
