World building is HARD!

The problem with a major overhaul... like putting in the whole plot sub-structure and things... is it takes a TON of time to get all the details out of my head and onto paper.

... especially with my scatterbrained short attention span!

I really ought to be making some quick jokes to keep this up in the meantime or something... my downtime is horrendous!


I just knew I was forgetting something...

HEY! I finally figured out how to show the full size without the hyperlink!

Muszette ( aka mszaphiri ) got back home from the hospital on Thursday!

Although things here are really chaotic right now, having her home is a huge stress relief of my head, and that means I'll hopefully be able to have more free space in my head for cute comic ideas and things!

So... redesigning the comic is still in progress... but the cabbit is home and despite the fact that I often draw her annoyed at me, she's quite happy to be back home!


Let there be fireworks!!!

I think we're all in agreement that those little ignitable snakes are HORRIBLE disappointments. They never really grow without splintering apart into little charcoal ashes... little tiny grubs at best that just burn against the driveway...

But in all honesty, I loved sparklers when I was a kid!

I had this HUGE backyard, and there was this great view of the local firework display right from my house... and all through the dark, I'd run around, lighting sparkler after sparkler and running around with the little cinder-sparks tingling and dancing off my skin... spinning and waving them madly into the night air like a little firefly who had lost her mind...

... I know the GIANT BOOMS in the sky, and the explosions that light up half the night are a much bigger draw of your attention... and mebbe they are more fun... mebbe not...

There was just something magical about being able to hold this glittering fireball right in my hands when I was little.

Happy 4th from the 'Phooki!

Oh... and yes, comics are coming eventually... we're still working out script details.


Redesigning things

You can blame the bunny if you want... I do!

I've been trying to figure out what I wanted to do with what I've got, and really... I want to start over in a lot of areas.

So, I'm busy working on coming up with a whole world idea that I can exploit and abuse for all my comic needs... and with luck, all of the fine details will be worked out before Itty's back gives out!

Poor little guy's gonna need a back rub after all this!


EGAD... a post!!!

Storyboard Confessionals

Been thinking a lot about this lately... and really I've got no other reason as to why its become so difficult to pick this back up beyond the fact that this turned into something that really wasn't what I was looking for.

I was trying to be cute, funny, and silly... which was great at first, but then I had to go all and put plots and thought into this.

I miss the silly... and I really don't like this current storyline... reminds me just a little too much about some things here at home, and this was never supposed to be my way of coping with it. Heck, this wasn't supposed to even have storylines that ran over 10 pages in the original concept. Come to think of it... I didn't have an original concept, did I?

Well... that's gonna change!

This was supposed to be fun, and durn it, I'm gonna make it fun... so time to start wrapping up this depressing storyline and get back to the impishness that this was supposed to have been in the first place!

Not dead... not quitting... just lost my way for a while.


Why yes, we are still alive!

... we've just had a heck of a difficult time showing signs of life for the past month or so. Medical problems, and the associated stress that goes along with them have put the comic pretty low on the priority list.

But, as things are getting back to whatever passes for normal in my life, the comic madness shall soon continue where we last left off.

No, seriously... we've got a script with plots and everything this time!

So... stay tuned, folks... the comic shall yet again rise from the grave!

Kinda like Altered Beast... but without the dual-headed-wolf-kicking action, and much less mostly-naked-roman-centurion-beefyness.


Good grief, its a running gag!

My world = my rules.

The best perk about being your own artgod... so, I figure why just find and ride on a Yoshi when you could find a power-up and turn into one! Heck of a lot more fun!!!

... not to mention, perfect for grabbing that cup of coffee that's sitting just out of arms reach. Though right now, there is a bit of backsplash on your face from the tongue-whip velocity. I'm gonna have to work on that a bit. Expect more forgiving physics by the time we hit yoshi-tongue v1.6!

Sorry, I'm still going through a silly phase... eventually, I promise I will get back to the actual plot, but I just want some silliness for right now.

A tanuki-leaf power up... really pointless when you're already part tanuki.

Me and my drum!

This is the plan for when I don't finish a comic on time...  I've got to get in the habit of regularly posting something... anything is better than nothing! This week, I've been down hard with the flu, so I haven't gotten much of anything at all done.

Just a quick little doodle. Mocha loves her drums!

Back to the storyline soon!


The phook, the whole phook, and nothing but the phook!

I do have the panels sketched for getting back to the actual storyline, but I wasn't able to get much serious work done today after a rather nasty anxiety attack about having to go to court earlier this afternoon.

Just a traffic violation, but it got blown out of proportion... gee, me get things blown out of proportion? Nah.....

Fortunately, Itty is an outstanding lawyer, and got it completely dismissed. Back to the actual plot line later this week.

... and in all seriousness... I am extremely thankful for the counsel that was working in the courtroom today! I was terrified that I was gonna get a gavel across my butt!
