Dungeons & Dragons
Trying something new.
It’s been a hot minute, or three, since I last posted here. I’ve been keeping active on Notes, but I know not everyone uses those. I’ll try to keep up with this more frequently, but this week’s update will be a short one.
About a week or two ago, my wife and I played D&D together with our friends for the first time in roughly 8 years. It was fun, but since the baby is due in less than a month, it’ll be at least six to seven months before we get to play again.
I have been feeling a little bit of screen fatigue lately, so I haven’t been drawing or writing much. I keep a sketchbook by my desk all day, so I can try to keep myself creatively stimulated, and this gaming session inspired me to draw out one of the encounters as I saw it in my mind. I have been playing with watercolours and ink for just over a month now, and I’m thinking I may do a fantasy story in the style of the image above.
If that is something you’d like to see here, leave a comment below.
I have two comics I want to do in the next year. I also have three stories I want to write, but I can only write one at a time, so I need to hurry up and finish the first one so I can get to work on the other two.
The comics I want to do are:
A fantasy story inspired by my old D&D characters. They’ll be an unlikely group of assholes, and I think it would be fun to write and draw. Especially if I do it in the style of the image above.
The other is an anti-super hero comic. Not as gritty and violent as Kick Ass, but a little more absurd, yet self-aware. I’ve always been afraid to work on superhero comics, but thinking about comics like DeadPool and The Tick have really triggered some inspiration. I look forward to plotting it out while I’m up all night waiting for the baby to finish his bottle and go back to sleep.

That’s really all I’ve got for this week. I have been toying with the idea of reactivating my Patreon to serve as a backup for this newsletter, and that’s just what I did. Just a reminder, it’s free to follow me over there, and I do post quite a bit for free.😉
