So I’ve started a blog for my cosplay, if any of you are interested in checking that out.
This is my final project in my illustration class. I wanted to explore constructed femininity and gender performance through a hyper feminine means. I worked for about a month, spent way too much money and didn’t get enough sleep but I think it was worth it. I’d like to continue pushing my art in this direction in the future, finding ways to combine my love of costume, sculpture, performance and illustration. It was a lot of work but right now I’m feeling pretty content with it.
I have a new comic project planned for 2014. It’s going to be different from the comics365 project but I’m hoping you’ll all like it.
if you really want to start a comic blog and insist on using a tablet I’d recommend getting a cheap Wacom Bamboo tablet, that’s what I started with. They’re pretty cheap and you could probably find one on Craigslist. Photoshop is pretty expensive, so you can just start with ms paint or something. To be honest I can’t tell you how to start a comic blog, it’s sort of something you’re going to have to figure out for yourself using what works for you. You could even draw the comics manually, scan them and post them that way. Just do what works for you, experiment. There’s no right or wrong way to go about this.
