Before I dug into the Secret Project in earnest today, I thought I should do a brief watercolour piece. I needed the practice, but didn’t really have any idea what to draw. Still, I collected the materials: paints, water.
Just needed some paper. Snuggled in my work bag beside my sketchbook was my notebook for my comic work.
As such, I decided I should do something in relation to my now much neglected comic characters.
Subject decided, I submerged into the process.
Evidently, there is considerably more practice required. I need to get used to drawing the characters again…!
It was fun to draw them again. Here, Josephine is bartering for another chance (to misbehave) with her chief babysitter, Le Roy.
The paper wasn’t coping too well with the medium, thus keeping it simple was mandatory. As such, I attempted a blue background wash, which didn’t go overly well.
Regardless, the minimal rendering kept it as a sketch, which was all that I wanted for this piece anyway.
Hello! It’s me Cat here with a quick announcement regarding my webcomic Sass. Earlier this week I put the announcement: sass goes on hiatus out on social media, as well as announcing it on my creator’s page on Tapas Media.
In order to really give something your all, you have to give it all of your focus. Sometimes this means leaving things that you care about to the back burner for a while. This is the case for the webcomic Sass.
At the moment, I really want to give my business my all. While I enjoy creating my comic on the side, and it has really helped keep my drawing skills sharp, it has to go on pause.
Why? I don’t want to let the standard I have for it drop. I am going to do my best and work on it here and there, I won’t deny I would find it hard to go cold turkey on it.
However, production will be slow enough that it’s better to go on Hiatus from publishing for a time. Maybe I will give little extras and sneak peaks here and there as I go, but I’m not making any promises.
Right now, my business and the building of it 100% comes first.
I thank you for your understanding.
I will be posting updates on the progress of the business and being productive on Fridays, here on the blog. For more frequent peaks, follow me on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
