Wow. It’s been a long time coming, and the studio is probably about 80% ready to roll. There’s still the little issue with the sub-site that will be presenting the new comic strips. I’m primarily a print and pre-press oriented designer, so I’m having a tough time deciding what to do with this page. If you look at certain web comics, they tend to be extremely cluttered with all kinds of excessive elements scattered around the page. The themes available for these sites are also somewhat limited. I’d like to present the strip in two varying sizes – a “weekly” format, like what you’d find in your local newspaper, and a Sunday-sized strip. Here’s where it gets interesting.
I’m not limited by size limitations here. There are some wild examples of side-scrolling websites too. And while those are pretty cool from a novelty standpoint, I think the lack of a side scrolling button on most mice might kill the return traffic. If I decided to draw a comic that was 20 feet high and required you to scroll for hours just to get to the end, I could.
But I’m not Jack Kerouac, and this ain’t On the Road.
So while I work on figuring out how to go about this stuff, I hope you enjoy looking around at the galleries and, whatever you do, don’t forget to bookmark us! There’s a lot to come!
