Hello, all. I’ve been neglecting this blog a bit, and I apologise for that. However, I’m now actually on vacation, something that hasn’t happened to me properly for at least half a decade. It’s not a paid vacation, so if you’re thinking of expressing how jealous you are, you can stop now. Also, it’s going to be a vacation devoted almost entirely to the creation of the WoB collection.
I’ll keep you updated with progress every once in a while here. If I do ever manage to get my act together and put together a Kickstarter campaign, there will be news about that on this blog. In addition, I’m going to be using the WoB Facebook page to shame myself into doing some work on the project every day. I must post something there on a daily basis (likely in the evening). If I don’t, scorn and mockery from you will be welcome.
There’s a massive amount of work to do, so hurrah. I’ve started today by slowly gathering together all the scattered WoB files, which have been living on two separate computers and a number of external devices. My next job will be to ensure that all my PSD files have been converted into GIFs (I do this as I go along, but some of the files appear to have hidden themselves in obscure corners of my computer). Then will come the fun of going back through all thousand-odd comics and lightening the shading I used in some of them (it’s fine for the screen but comes through as way too dark in print). And that’s only the beginning of what needs to be done.
Thanks for your support thus far. This is happening. I have made time for this to happen. Stay tuned; I’ll let you know what comes next.
