Remember Adventures of the American Rabbit in this week’s Billy Badass!

Minecraft and Chill 8.

Slept in today after staying up until 2 in the morning ringing in 2016 and recording M&C with the guys. After grabbing lunch I came home to work on Monday’s comic. I sat down to write which led to researching more potential subjects. I’d like to keep subjects chronological so readers get introduced to things at the same pace as Billy. He can bring up stuff from later but I feel I should at least try to pay attention to release dates. Going to start drawing tomorrow.

Think once the comic’s taken care of I’m going to see about editing the homepage and retooling my project list. I want the site to reflect what projects I’m working on at the moment. Need to streamline it so current stuff is promoted up top and things on hiatus aren’t burying anything important.

As I said yesterday, I’m going to move away from obligatory posts of the day in favor of posts to showcase new content. I’ll do a mockup and we’ll see how easy/realistic some of those changes are to implement. The goal is to make the site more useful as quickly as possible. I have no intentions of wading in code for days on end.

Remember Adventures of the American Rabbit in this week’s Billy Badass!

Minecraft and Chill 8.

Hope everybody’s having a good, safe New Year’s Eve. I’m using the time to relax, reflect, and let my creative imagination wander.

I’m thinking today and tomorrow are going to be the last regular WIDT entries. They’ve been useful for posting more frequently but I’d really rather move to sharing fuller views of what I’m working on. It’s similar to the Daily Doodles – a good exercise but ultimately I should put my energy into bigger updates.

I’ve blogged before about dealing with anxiety and the sobering ongoing process it’s been. Getting on a regular sleep/work schedule has helped that. For 2016 I’d like to focus more on the projects themselves. I don’t want to just say I’ll update “whenever” because that’d probably lead to the next blog wishing a happy 2017 or something. I want to retool it as more of a review digest, looking at what worked and what didn’t. Something I should be doing anyway.

So happy 2016, everybody. I’ll post more tomorrow.

Remember Adventures of the American Rabbit in this week’s Billy Badass!

Minecraft and Chill 8.

Got up this morning about 4 and drew in the studio for awhile. Haven’t animated in some time so I started spending too much time shading a background that would obscure what I was actually trying to do. Think I’m getting the look I’m going for, though.


Went for breakfast and some other things, came home and napped because I got up too early. Started another idea focusing on the motion first, saving hatching for later. Having a little trouble finding my groove as I’m still experimenting with the style. Also trying to settle on creepy mood music that has enough energy to keep me focused.
