Encouragement: Through the Wardrobe Through the wardrobe to Narnia, down the rabbit hole into Wonderland, taking that first step out of the Shire into a world that is much bigger than us. The universes that we create through our world building are the places we would like to visit. They in some ways give us clarity, in others they present questions, but most of all they are home for us. Our worlds are real to us in their detail, people, places, and histories. Really they are where our hearts dwell and where we desire to reside when the real world has become overwhelming. Something beautiful about them is that they also allow others to find a refuge and home as well. To venture through the lands and tales we tell through the denizens who reside within their time and space.
Allowing others in can be met with a variety of hesitancy. Let's face it, we can be anxious about letting others peer in because these worlds are so very precious to us. Our art is our voice, our
f#$k it! it's death vigil for EVERYONE!So i've been sitting here thinking...
we live in the age of kickstarter and patreon....
people are supporting all sorts of projects...
NO! I'M NOT SETTING UP A KICKSTARTER OR PATREON!
i don't have the patience not the focus to handle all that... but it did get me thinking...
if teasers for projects can get people to fund it... what aout the full thing?
i don't do crowdfunding. i make comics.
i publish comics. if people love and buy my comics... i get to make more comics.
so with that in mind. i will post the entirety of death vigil here.
from there on it's in the hands of the readers. if you want to support the book being made, i will post the comixology links, and image digital links, as well as trade preorder links.
so if you feel this is your kind of comic, and it's something you want to see made in it'y entirety..and can afford to support it by buying it...thank you.
if not, i still hope you like it. so with no further a do... this week i will be uploading issues.
death vigil preorder linksso... here it is..the thing that critically injured my book...
some fun insight for any of you who want to get your own series running...
without promotion...quality won't get you far.
let's put things into context
this is death vigil series result on comic book roundup
comic book roundup is to comics what metacritic is to games and whatnot. it compiles multiple reviews and creates an average score.
based on reviews death vigil has a score of 9.1 out od 10
and yet here we are.
i will now copy a part from my previous journal as it is relevant
now, as i work predominantly for independent companies, my work can be a bit hard to get.
reason for this is a simple one. comic book stores buy their supplies from diamond. the main distributor.
they buy stuff they know will sell. comics
Creatives Groups: IgnitionWhat is a creatives group?
Well simply put they are a gathering of creatives from various or similar art discipline backgrounds or interests =^^= They are a safe place to share art projects and dreams with other artists but first and foremost they are a place to encourage and inspire one another. They are not a place to boss around other people. If someone is so keen on their idea of how they think you should build your dream, then they should go build one for themselves. Now this isn't to say that people can't give constructive evaluations of another artist's work or their art discipline maturity (improvements in our art =^^= ) that is always welcome.
Always keep these two rules:
1. This is a place to encourage & inspire, help one another, in order to keep forward momentum for each other in working toward our artistic dreams =^^=
2. Even if it's just you, start a group, pick a name, and most of all have fun =^^=
