Here’s my latest comic: https://inhumaneresourcescomic.com/#/panel/338.
So I managed to do a full month of entries in three weeks, putting me six weeks ahead of you. I’ve got another four-week chunk of comics roughed, and I’m working on the sketches. I don’t know if I’ll be able to finish this block in another three weeks. It’s got a lot of difficult angles.
I scrapped my no-recycle policy as a little bit ago. I was looking up Wally Wood, who made the “22 Panels that Always Work” reference that I’m using any time my composition looks interesting, and I found this credo:
So I’m reusing work, but I seem busier with the comic than ever. Lately, I think it’s that I’m trying to do add to my buffer. Also, people are moving around a lot, so I can’t really reuse my “sets”. Like with these cartoons, everyone’s back in the same dining room they were in around panels 64-80, but my standards for what my backgrounds can look like are way higher than they were then, so I can’t reuse that work.
Anyway, I have to go. As the sharper and quicker readers among you might have noticed, I managed to post Julius without the T-shirt logo that he has in earlier comics. Putting those logos on is one of the last things I do, and I forgot. I eventually remembered, but apparently the images were already queued.
Oh, I’ve been talking to the Reddit Comic Creators, which is a cool group. One of them, Hannahcomb, has a really cool live drawing stream on Twitch. If you get a chance, check out her live stream doing lots of characters from independent comics.
